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! ...Read more

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. ...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

A pregnant woman's Rubella IgG result shows 154.14 IU/mL (Positive). But she has not vaccinated rubella. What does it means? Pls explain

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Hello doctor m 16 weeks pregnant n gone thru torch test n got IgG positive for rubella, cytomegalis n herpes please guide?

Actually good news: The tests mean you have immunity to those germs & your baby is not at risk from a infection from most of those mentioned. Germs on that list can infect a mom for their first time during pregnancy & cause a miscarriage, birth defects or worse. This is not a guarantee everything will go well but it is good news just the same. The herpes + means you need to watch for flare ups & sometimes have a cs. ...Read more

I am not pregnant anat my rubella IgG is positive 110.1 iu/ml is it ok or not?

Good: Your positive rubella igg titer indicates either past infection or vaccination to rubella--also known as german measles this is a good thing. This is normally checked prior/during pregnancy because susceptibility to infection is a danger to the fetus. You are not at risk for infection; if you became pregnant, your fetus would not be at risk either based on these current results. ...Read more

Rubella IgG: A level of Rubella antibody of 10 IU/ml or more indicates immunity to Rubella. Ask what the reference range is for your test.

RUBELLA IgG ANTIBODIES count is 1.96 and I am 8 weeks pregnant now. What is this result means? Please assist me.

Rubella non-immune: It means that you are not immune to rubella and can get sick if you are exposed to a sick person. It is very unlikely as active rubella is a rare case today, but you still need to be careful. You can get vaccinated after delivery as it is a live vaccine and cannot be given during pregnancy. Ask your doctor what will be the best way for you. Most hospitals offer it prior to discharge from L&D. ...Read more

Vaccine update: There is some variation from lab to lab so you should confirm with your doctor. It appears to me that your results show you are non immune to Rubella and that your MMR vaccine is out of date. After you have the baby your doctor will want you to get another MMR vaccine booster so that you will be protected. ...Read more
