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.
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. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...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
Mother has it: Rubella can only reach a baby in the womb if it travels there through mothers blood. If the mom was immunized or had it as a kid, she will never have rubella enter her blood. If she did not, she could be exposed to anyone with it and get the disease. During mothers illness, which is usually mild, the germ enters baby and cause permanent damage. ...Read more
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
Im 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
At least a month: If your rubella titer is non immune, you should receive a rubella vaccine at least 1 month before you become pregnant. Receiving it too close to your pregnancy may affect your unborn child. There are good guidelines on the CDC website to guide you along. Congratulations for thinking about the safety of your unborn child. ...Read more
My rubella igm>400, IgG negative (0.13) is vaccination ok under these circumstances?. Im 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: That titer is consistent with old infection, not active infection. There is no issue. ...Read more
