Question (01/13/2013):

Title: RUBELLA IGG positive and my next pregnancy

I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks on 26 December 2012.

Doctor said that baby's heartbeat stopped at its 8th week.

Then after d&c I had TORCH panel test in which all were negative but RUBELLA IGG was positive 160EUI/ml.

May i know whether this has any defect for my next conception or next pregnancy?

Answer:

Thank you very much for your question.

A positive IgG means you are immune.

More than 10 international units per milliliter (IU/mL) IgG antibodies means that you are immune to rubella and cannot get the infection.

In an adult or child, the absence of IgG antibodies to rubella means the person is unprotected.

A rubella test is usually done for a woman who is or wants to become pregnant to determine whether she is at risk for rubella.

Rubella blood test Positive:

More than 10 international units per milliliter (IU/mL) IgG antibodies means a positive rubella IgG test result and that is good-it means that you are immune to rubella and cannot get the infection.

Rubella blood test Negative:

Less than 7 IU/mL IgG antibodies and less than 0.9 IgM antibodies means you are not immune to rubella. If you are a woman thinking about getting pregnant, talk with your doctor about getting a rubella vaccine before pregnancy.

A test for rubella IgM antibodies is done only if the doctor suspects you have a current rubella infection. More than 1.1 IU/mL IgM antibodies means you had a recent rubella infection or you have a current infection.
