Yes: A positive rubella test could show a recent or long past infection. If recent, it might have been the issue with a miscarriage, if long past, something else was likely the cause.If yours is now + you won't need to worry about rubella or CMV for future pregnancies. As long as your system has recovered you can be successful.
