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

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?

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

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

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

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 more
