6 weeks: Presence of rubella-specific igm antibody indicates recent infection, however, false-positive results do occur. Follow-up igg titer in 2-3 weeks will be of help in confirmation of diagnosis.

Pregnancy (Definition)

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

I just got my results back for a blood test done for the Rubella Ab (IGG). Test is positive my level is 3.05 is that okay? I am 15 weeks pregnant

Yes: That means that you are immune to rubella, likely from the MMR vaccine you would have received as a child. Your baby and you are protected from rubella infection should you be exposed during pregnancy. Though of course if you come into contact with someone with rubella, to be safe you should avoid them going forward. Also, congratulations on being an expecting mom!

12 weeks pregnant. I have immunity to rubella according to my IgG test. My IgM test came back positive. Should I be worried?

Are you sick?: Rubella igm can stick around indefinitely after your immunization, or be a false-positive. I would stop worrying. Rubella is a terrible disease when it affects the unborn child, and it is still very much with us as evidenced by outbreaks in europe due to lack of immunization.

What should be the result of rubella IgG test during 9 weeks pregnancy?

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.

My wife now is in 11th week of pregnant. Her rubella ab IgG test report is 4563.0 & reference range is non reactive < 10 and reactive >=10. Pls advice?

Protection: Igg antibody indicates that she has good protection against rubella and this is good especially for a pregnant woman. In the future, if you have questions, you should ask the doctor who ordered the test since he knows more about the specific circumstances than an outsider.

Positive IgG: A positive IgG for rubella indicates you have had the virus in the past or have been successfully immunized. This is a good thing if you are planning a pregnancy. Your doctor may have a reason for ordering more tests, just ask. All the best.

I have rubella IgG level 1.2, does that mean I have rubella?

I have rubella IgG level 1.2, does that mean I have rubella?

No: Rubella igg is the antibody that is formed when you have been exposed to rubella in the past. So this means that you have either had the infection, or been immunized against rubella in the past, and you are now immune to ever getting it again.

What does the rubella ab IgG test tell you?

Past disease: A positive igg study will show that a female has a protective level of rubella antibody created by a past infection or immunization. Present or future pregnancies would not be at risk of rubella disease.

Congenital cataract: Congenital rubella is a well known cause for congenital cataract in babies. I hope by now you had your rubella or MMR vaccine. Good luck to you & your baby.

Hi. I am 28 yr old & first time pregnant its almost 13th week. Now I have done test of rubella IgG & came to know that its 1.28 positive. Kindly say?

Good.: You want it to be positive. It means you are immune to rubella (german measles) and so will not get sick with it during your pregnancy. This is important since rubella during pregnancy can harm the growing baby.

If my rubella IgG and CMV IgG tests are positive should I consider for pregnancy, as I had earlier miscarriages.?

If my rubella IgG and CMV IgG tests are positive should I consider for pregnancy, as I had earlier miscarriages.?

Yes: A positive rubella test could show a recent or long past infection. If recent, it might have been the issue with a miscarriage, if long past, something else was likely the cause. If yours is now + you won't need to worry about rubella or CMV for future pregnancies. As long as your system has recovered you can be successful.

Rubella IgG: Means previous exposure, IgM > 1.1 denotes recent infection, which isn't your case, and your IgG titers are good. Yes you can have a normal child if you have IgG to rubella, means immunity to the disease, your best bet for having normal pregnancy and a healthy baby is good prenatal care, good luck

Most likely, good: News showing her immunity to Rubella. IgG antibodies increase during an active Rubella infection, but not right at its beginning, & stay elevated. If she had symptoms of a viral illness with fever & a rash around the time of conception or during pregnancy, her doctor can order a Rubella IgM titer to make sure that her infection was not recent enough to pose a risk to her fetus.

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.

See details: The igg means little by itself and often just means previous exposure. If the igm is negative you have no worries. If it is positive you may have active issues. My guess is that the igg is not important.

MY torch panel test is positive with rubella IgG 15.40 Iu/Ml nd Cmv IgG is 132 U/ml. Will there is complication in pregnancy and will the child be safe?

MY torch panel test is positive with rubella IgG 15.40 Iu/Ml nd Cmv IgG is 132 U/ml. Will there is complication in pregnancy and will the child be safe?

Not from these germs: There is no single test that can assure you will not have some complication during pregnancy. These results mean these germs will not harm your baby if you have a chance exposure.
