Good: Your positive rubella igg titer indicates either past infection or vaccination to rubella--also known as german measles this is a good thing. This is normally checked prior/during pregnancy because susceptibility to infection is a danger to the fetus. You are not at risk for infection; if you became pregnant, your fetus would not be at risk either based on these current results. ...Read more

Most likely, good : news showing her immunity to Rubella. IgG antibodies increase during an active Rubella infection, but not right at its beginning, then remain elevated. If she had symptoms of a viral illness with fever & a rash around the time of conception or during pregnancy, her doctor can order a Rubella IgM titer to make sure that her infection was not recent enough to pose a risk to her fetus. ...Read more

I just got my results back for a blood test done for the Rubella Ab (IGG). Test is positive my level is 3.05 is that okay? I am 15 weeks pregnant

Yes: That means that you are immune to rubella, likely from the MMR vaccine you would have received as a child. Your baby and you are protected from rubella infection should you be exposed during pregnancy. Though of course if you come into contact with someone with rubella, to be safe you should avoid them going forward. Also, congratulations on being an expecting mom! ...Read more
