Both my Rubella IgG and IgM tests are positive. Does this mean my pregnancy at any risk?

'Ig' is medical terminology for antibody. IgG antibodies are those that give long term immunity, and are usually produced months after an infection. IgM antibodies are produced much more rapidly-days to weeks after an infection, then melt away. So it is possible that you have had rubella (German Measles) in the last few months-and if you were pregnant at that time there is a small risk that your developing baby might have been exposed to rubella. We think that you may need advice form virology and fetal medicine doctors to give you the best information.
