Rubella Ig G Reactive
Likely good: IgG to rubella rises if you have had the disease or the vaccine in the past. A high IgM level would mean there is active or a recent (months) infection. If you have a protective (high) IgG rubella titer you never have to worry about getting rubella during pregnancy and that disease hurting the baby (real bad stuff). ...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

I am single. Got test of ca 125 with a result of 35.28 and got test of rubella IgG with 18.20 reactive. Is it cancer?
Why tested for CA125: Ca 125 is a controversial test. So it is not advised unless there is some other evidence of ovarian cancer. Your results (for whatever reason it was checked?) are still in the normal range but may provoke some anxiety now that someone made the mistake to do it in the first place. I have no idea why rubella was tested and what it means in your case. An ultrasound of the ovaries may be your best guid. ...Read more

I am single 25yr with mid cycle bleeding like jel & pain in lower abdomen. Tested ca 125 result 35.28, rubella IgG with 18.20 reactive. Is it cancer?
Not likely..: First of all, your result for rubella is reactive, which means you are immune from rubella (a viral infection). Ca125 is a tumor marker but is non-specific. This means that it can be high for all kind of reasons including cancer and many benign diseases such as endometriosis and even just inflammation/infection. Cancer is less likely at your age but you should get checked out anyway. ...Read more

Rubella Igg came out positive and Igm is non reactive. I'm 19weeks pregnant. Is it harmful for the baby.
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
