I am 28 year old female. .. m married and miscarriage because of rubella IgG. .. and now reports showed that m having herpes simplex type 2 IgM 2.50?

What's the question?: The presence of rubella IgG means that you were protected against rubella and thus it was not the cause for your miscarriage. Assuming the HSV2 is positive, you will need to talk to your OB doctor regarding this issue even though I am not aware that this is causing miscarriage. I still don't understand your question however. ...Read more
