Positive results mean you either have measles, IgM or had then in the past IgG. If they are both negative you require a measles immunization. Ask your lab for their interpretation. ...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

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

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.

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

I did a rubella virus test and my IgG 17 IU/ml, and IgM 0.120. I would like to know that I have rubella virus and what does the "retesting zone" mean?

I did a rubella virus test and my IgG 17 IU/ml, and IgM 0.120. I would like to know that I have rubella virus and what does the "retesting zone" mean?

Rubella virus: Virus exposures can elevate IgM antibodies (showing recent exposure to the rubella virus) or with previous exposure, provide IgG antibody positives. The critical element with rubella is whether exposure occurred during an early pregnancy. "Re-testing" is done to see if the IgM antibodies are rising, indicating if pregnant whether the chance for fetal infection is present. ...Read more

My blood test shows that- rubella IgG result 33.7 iu/ml (interpretation-weak reactive). What does it means? I am pregnant 19 wks. Is this dangerous?

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. ...Read more
