General rule: The general rule is to avoid any weakened virus vaccine like measles/rubella or MMR for 1 month prior to conception. There are occasional reports on women who have found out they received the vaccines during the early stages of pregnancy that did not have a negative outcome. That said, we avoid these out of a sense of caution.
