My wife have a  Rubella IgG result shows 45.14 IU/mL (Positive). But she has not vaccinated rubella. Right now she is pregnent of 25 weeks crossed...

Normal.: A test for Rubella IgG tells us whether she is immune to this virus - with a "high titer" or 45, this tells us she is immune to Rubella. Since she was not vaccinated, this tells us that she had the infection in the past; however, this should not pose a risk to the fetus. Consult with your obstetrician about these results, but from this alone, there should be no cause for concern. ...Read more

A pregnant woman's Rubella IgG result shows 154.14 IU/mL (Positive). But she has not vaccinated rubella. What does it means? Pls explain

Most likely, good : news showing her immunity to Rubella. IgG antibodies increase during an active Rubella infection, but not right at its beginning, & stay 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

Pregnant 13 weeks, IgG and IgM rubella come out positive, IgG 101(+), IgM 1.3(+), retest after 3 weeks, result the same, is it safe to continue?

Rubella: The presence of igm antibodies suggests, but does not prove, that you have had infection in the "recent" past, but the absence of a rising titer in 3 wks also suggests that the infection was not immediately prior to the first testing. Whether or not you choose to continue your pregnancy is a personal decision, but doubt that these values necessarily predict a negative outcome. Good luck. ...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
