My rubella IgM >400 and IgG negative 0.13. But I didn't have any symptom. Is it a problem to get vaccinated again since im planning pregnancy.

No, but: Arguably you don't need to get vaccinated again because you are already producing antibodies; it should only be a matter of time before the antibody production shifts from igm to igg. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

What should be the result of rubella IgG test during 9 weeks pregnancy?

Depends: The rubella blood test is checking to see if you are immune to the rubella virus. Rubella, also known as german measles, can cause problems for the baby if the mom gets it while pregnant. If igg is positive then she is immune and she doesn't need to worry about german measles. If negative she needs to avoid sick people with rash, and get immunized after delivery. ...Read more

In 14th week of pregnancy rubella IgG antibodies is 52.10. Is normal or needs some attention? My baby is affected or not?

Rubella IGG: This is good news. It means that you had rubella, aka german measles, in the past and are now immune to it and so cannot fall sick with it during your pregnancy. This is important since getting rubella while pregnant is dangerous for the growing baby. Best wishes for a very healthy baby. ...Read more

I have pregnancy of 19 weeks, my rubella test doen and result shows igg is 0.7 and igm is 0.73.can I know this is normal?

Vaccine update: There is some variation from lab to lab so you should confirm with your doctor. It appears to me that your results show you are non immune to Rubella and that your MMR vaccine is out of date. After you have the baby your doctor will want you to get another MMR vaccine booster so that you will be protected. ...Read more

My rubella Igg came out positive and im 19weeks pregnant. Is this mean that I had measles in my first 3weeks of pregnancy? My igm is non reactive.

Unlikely: The IgM will eventually drop off a month or two after primary infection so absence at 19 weeks doesn't tell you much about early pregnancy. Unless you were ill with rubella during that period I would not expect it. This pair of tests are often done in pregnancy and your results is what they expect from someone who received the vaccine as a kid or had the disease before pregnancy. ...Read more

Rubella igG and igM b test results show 0.13 OD ratio for igG and 0.25 OD ratio for igM. Can I plan for pregnancy? Should I get vaccinated before?

Need vaccination: These results appear to be negative, indicating you are not immune to rubella. The OD ratio is one of the less common ways of measuring IgG and IgM. The usual report is in IU/mL (international units per milliliter). Please review with your doctor or local health department. I believe they will advise getting vaccinated before attempting pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

My rubella igm>400, IgG negative (0.13) is vaccination ok under these circumstances? . I'm planning for pregnancy.

Rubella: The presence of igm class antibodies indicates congenital or recent infection. If you have any signs of infection get in to see the doctor immediately. I would wait 6 weeks and repeat titers to make sure the igm is trending down and the igg is trending up (proving immunity). ...Read more

6 weeks pregnancy with crl 4mm no cardiac activity detected and rubella IgG above 200 iu/ml. What would happen?

Need one more scan: You are immune to rubella given that result. The rubella igg is nothing to worry about. You likely need another ultrasound in 1 week to reevaluate the pregnancy. If there is still no heart beat detected, a miscarriage would be confirmed. ...Read more

Yes: A positive rubella test could show a recent or long past infection. If recent, it might have been the issue with a miscarriage, if long past, something else was likely the cause. If yours is now + you won't need to worry about rubella or CMV for future pregnancies. As long as your system has recovered you can be successful. ...Read more

I'm 12w pregnant now & my recent rubella result: igg +ve 27 igm equivocal 1.15 I never had any rash / fever during my pregnancy. Is my baby safe?

Probably: Early in pregnancy babies will generally miscarry or be fine. Not all babies will have congenital rubella and the fact you didn't get sick and have good igg if a good sign; the igm is likely a "red herring", it isn't part of the usual screening anyway, just the igg; good luck, it should be fine. ...Read more

What do you advise if I'm married 3 years ago but I have no pregnency bcoz I have rubella IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64?

Need to know IgM: A + CMV IgG antibody means past infection with CMV and that you now have antibodies to the virus. A negative CMV IgM antibody titer indicates you do not have an active CMV infection. At this point if you should get pregnant, you are at minimal risk for having a child born with congenital CMV infection. Follow CMV IgM titer for reactivation.
+ IgG for Rbuella = immune. No risk of reactivation ...Read more

31 yrs old Primi 6 wks gestation with no significant PMH. Rubella IgG 359 & IgM - Reactive (1.97) before 10 days/IgG 347 & IgM - Reactive (1.91) today

It could be a false-: Positive IgM since you had no symptoms of Rubella & your IgG titer did not increase. Do ask your OB-GYN. You can also ask an infectious disease specialist if it's worth getting a 3rd set of titers in a week or so. A culture for Rubella has to be sent to a specialty lab or the CDC & is very expensive.
Look at your immunization records to see if you had both an initial & booster MMR vaccine. ...Read more

Rubella and CMV IgG are high. How serious is this?

I'd think not: Having high igg to both these germs is quite desirable. It means you have been infected or vaccinated in the past & have protection circulating in your blood. A woman becoming pregnant would never want to have either infection during pregnancy as they could produce a variety of birth injuries or defects in the baby. High levels are good. ...Read more
