Rubella Shot Before Pregnancy
Is getting MMR shot 1 month and 13 days before pregnancy safe to baby?
Actually i got rubella vaccine when i was child am i immune to this MMR ?
Yes: Many ob's will do a rubella antibody test to see if your childhood vaccine has actually kept you immune. Years ago when only one was given, as many as 5-10% may not have been fully protected. The issue is so important a repeat is considered proper if your levels are low. The shot does its thing in the first 2wks after its given so 6 weeks out you have no reason to worry about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Should not: IgM (immunoglobulin M) is a class of antibodies that are produced in the early phase of an acute infection. Later antibodies of the IgG class are formed. Past infection or vaccination leads to positive IgG antiboies. If IgM antibodies are positive, the test should be first repeated to ensure it is not false positive. If it is truly positive it suggests acute infection with Rubella. ...Read more

Rubella titer: Ok, let's clarify, your igg is 70.8 and normal is over 11, so this means you're immune and won't get sick again. I am not sure why igm was done in your case. Igm is done only when acute infection is suspected. In that case, igg would be low. ...Read more
