Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   yes i wondering i had eclampsia during my pregnany will it occur again
Doctor :   Eclampsia is a condition that is seen only during pregnancy.
Doctor :   If it occurs again, it is referred to as seizures or convulsion.
Doctor :   So if you do not have history of convulsions in the past(before pregnancy) then the chance of recurrence is unlikely.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have said?
Doctor :   Are you there?
User :   yes well i had it in my first pregnancy
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   If you are planning for the next pregnancy, there are chances of this recurring then.

Doctor :   So during pregnancy, you would need regular monitoring.
User :   what am i suppose to do so thoisnwont happen\
Doctor :   Monitoring of your blood pressure and regular follow up with your doctor is all that you can do.
Doctor :   If you can keep your blood pressure under control, either through diet or through medications, the recurrence can be prevented.
