In brief: 1-3 weeks

The symptoms of fifth disease usually resolve in 1-3 weeks.
If you suspect you may have been exposed to 5th disease, caused by parvovirus b19, see your ob/gyn right away to get tested. Although most pregnant woman and their fetuses will be fine, some fetuses can develop severe anemia.
