Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

I am really sorry to hear about your partner but these diseases can be harmful and cause serious side effects to the baby. It also depends on the disease extent and the timing of disease.

But the decision to abort or not is the decision of treating Gynaecologist and both of you. Though medications are given if mother is infected during the pregnancy but chances of baby being infected are present. Kindly consider visiting the Gynaecologist so that she can explain the risk factors and consequences involved and then you can take the decision accordingly.

Take care!
