Try warm saline gargles.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

Mild fever and cough can be managed with rest steam warm saline gargles and increasing fluid intake. You can also try home remedies like ginger ale and honey or oral cough lozenges.

In case the cough is severe or there is high grade fever with chills then proper antibiotics will be needed after consulting your gynecologist.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
