Is my child at risk if I am positive for rubella IgG and IgM tests are positive?

Is my child at risk if I am positive for rubella IgG and IgM tests are positive?

Yes: Igm indicates a recent infection whereas IgG indicates past infection or immunity. When both are positive that means the infection is recent so there is some risk of intrauterine infection and the pregnancy should be monitored closely. It is important to make sure your MMR vaccine booster is up to date before pregnancy to avoid this situation. ...Read more

Does a negative IgM test for herpes mean i dont have herpes. I performed the test after 2 months of exposure both negative for IgM and igg.

Does a negative IgM test for herpes mean i dont have herpes. I performed the test after 2 months of exposure both negative for IgM and igg.

Yes: If you mean Herpes Simplex II , the answer is yes. It is unusual for anyone to be negative to HSVI, and if the tests for HSVI are negative, I would want to repeat them although I see little justification for getting HSV1 tested. ...Read more

What is an accurate window to have IgM testing done for hsv? I was tested 3.5 weeks after exposure and both IgG and IgM negative. Is this reassuring?

Antibody testing: I know that medicine seems very unsure about antibody testing and that is because it is not exact. Antibodies age along a time frame that can vary widely. Yes, your scenario is reassuring but you are not out of the woods yet. You must be twelve to twenty-four weeks out to be sure with routine antibody tests. ...Read more

2 ELISA tests for HIV done at 3 months and 6 months of exposure, is it a conformation that I dont have HIV if both tests are negative?

2 ELISA tests for HIV done at 3 months and 6 months of exposure, is it a conformation that I dont have HIV if both tests are negative?

Almost certainly: The ELISA tests detect antibodies to HIV and can appear as early as 2 weeks after infection but, if not detected by 6 months, it's 99% certain that you haven't been infected. That doesn't necessarily mean you weren't exposed however, It could mean you were lucky. Stick with protected sex unless you are at least 99% certain your partner isn't infected either. ...Read more

Toxoplasma IgG and IgM test results; what should they be if I am immune?

Toxoplasma IgG and IgM test results; what should they be if I am immune?

No true immunity: When one meets the toxoplasmosis organism (mild flu-like or no illness), IgM usually appears and may stay around for as long as 18 months. Igg will also appear and usually stay for life, suggesting you overcame the creatures. However, they may still be alive and dormant, to re-emerge should you become immunocompromised. ...Read more

I'M PREGNANT AND I DID A ZIKA TEST.THE IGG IS POSITIVE AND THE IGM IS NEGATIVE.WHAT SHOULD I DO ?

It depends: The do you know when you got sick? Did you get the rash? If it was weeks before you got pregnant, then you should be fine. The IgG means you were infected sometime in the past and you are now immune. The IgM is positive with a recent infection. If you got infected during your pregnancy, then your baby might be at risk. You will need to discuss this with your Ob doctor.(Obstetrician). ...Read more

Make sure to use condoms from now on and get retested for HIV in 6 months. You are probably fine but get checked just in case. ...Read more

Is it psoooble to still have a baby of I have german measles and my tests reflect positive for IgG and igm?

Confusing question: If you are pregnant & the rubella igm and igg are both positive, the fetus likely has congenital rubella and may have any of it's many complications. If you are not pregnant but had a recent case or shot for rubella, the numbers tell us your body is developing immunity & future pregnancies should be protected from the virus. ...Read more
