What does a positive CMV test result mean for my unborn baby?

It depends: Hopefully, you have had CMV before your pregnancy. It can be dangerous to an unborn child if a woman acquires CMV while she is pregnant. Fortunately, most people are infected in their teens or younger. ...Read more

Unlikely: IgG level elevation only signifies exposure to CMV, your pregnancy would be at increased risk with an IgM spike which signifies a primary infection which a fetus has no immunity against. Your CMV IgG is protective to your babies and is a positive sign. I'm always thrilled to give folks good news ! ...Read more

Test result: CMV antibody IgG 38, it also states "current vs. prior exposure unclear" why is it unclear? Am i contagious or not? Feel achy and ill

Need IgM test: It's unclear because IgM levels are needed to determine recent vs. prior infection. A negative (CMV) IgM results suggest that the patient is not experiencing a recent infection. Positive CMV IgM results indicate a recent infection (primary, reactivation, or reinfection) Positive CMV IgG indicate past or recent CMV infection. May transmit to susceptible individuals through blood and tissue product ...Read more

Im 19 weeks pregnant and my blood test result showed 86.90 u/ml for cmv, is that high and what do I do about it?

Im 19 weeks pregnant and my blood test result showed 86.90 u/ml for cmv, is that high and what do I do about it?

CMV?: CMV stands for cytomegalovirus, and do not think that is what you mean to ask about. The MCV is the mean corpuscular volume of erythrocytes, and in and by itself the value is meaningless unless the full range of CBC values and other information is included. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Lab data: These numbers mean absolutely nothing absent knowledge of your clinical history and exam and learning why these tests were ordered. In general igg levels of this nature for any infectious agent simply suggests that you may have had this in the past, but because of other factors this can also be falsely positive. ...Read more

Sorry - wrong track: I'm concerned we are on the 'wrong track' here. CMV is not really a major problem for a 'normal' patient. I think your lab testing and evaluation should concentrate on different possibilities. Have you had muscle enzyme testing? Thyroid? Lyme? Rheumatological tests? Evaluation of medications? Almost everyone has been exposed to CMV -so it's no wonder your IgG is positive. IgM would have no value. ...Read more

Is my unborn baby protected from cmv?

Is my unborn baby protected from cmv?

Depends on situation: The most burdensome problems with CMV occur when a mom gets infected during pregnancy & the virus gets into the baby during the blood phase of mom's illness. If mom had it as a child, she likely has protective antibodies that will prevent this from occurring.If tests prior to pregnancy show you cmv+, then its unlikely your kid will get it.If cmv-, avoid exposures to little kids that could have it. ...Read more

How does CMV affect the unborn baby during pregnancy?

How does CMV affect the unborn baby during pregnancy?

Depends.: If the mother has been previously exposed, then the fetus is protected by her antibodies and should not suffer when the mother is exposed to CMV during pregnancy. If the pregnant woman has never before been infected with cmv, the fetus is at risk for in utero infection that can range from lethal to mild/none. The earlier the infection the more severe and unlikely; the later, the milder and likely. ...Read more

I : I can understand your concern, but you are doing all of the right things. I am glad you have seen the specialist, which sounds like an infectious disease specialist. I am glad you had follow up and that the repeat results were encouraging. It sounds like you are doing everything just right and have a very good, thorough team of doctors. Many women get various infections during pregnancy and may not even know it. It is good that you have been so diligent about this testing. ...Read more

Doc terminated my preg. bec fetus had cystic hygroma, aborted fetus's cytogenetic lab test result: apparently normal female karyotype, plz explain??

Doc terminated my preg. bec fetus had cystic hygroma, aborted fetus's cytogenetic lab test result: apparently normal female karyotype, plz explain??

Fetus was a girl: "Normal female karyotype" just means the fetus was genetically a girl. It means there were 2 of each chromosome (contrast that with Down syndrome, where a fetus would have 3 of chromosome #21). So, "normal female karyotype" doesn't have a particular special meaning, but only that she was genetically a girl. ...Read more
