Human herpes virus (HHV) infections are dangerous during the early stages of pregnancy. Circulatory disorders of the endometrium from the uterine arteries pose a threat to the implantation of the embryo and the formation of the structure of chorionic villi. Oxygenation of the placental blood gets disrupted.
