User :   hi doctor
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   i would like to consult again my test result
Doctor :   This is Dr XXXXXXXX here.
Doctor :   Proceed with your query.
User :   i have CMV IgG 750AU/ml last 3 months and now i just tested again and have CMV IgG 352u/ml
User :   what does this mean?
User :   could you please help explain this?
Doctor :   IgG are immmunoglobulins which indicate a chronic infection.
Doctor :   It can indicated an old infection or previous vaccination.
User :   if i want to go for pregnancy, could i go for it?
Doctor :   As the levels are slowly reducing, this indicates the viral infection is getting cleared.
Doctor :   Pregnancy is to be avoided, if there is an infection which is active,
User :   so my result is an infection which is active or what?
Doctor :   but based on your reports, it appears that infection is getting resolved.
User :   i read some report that if we have past infection, it is good sign to go for pregancy
User :   is it right?
Doctor :   Past infection can produce antibodies which can fight against new infections,
Doctor :   However in the presence of immunocompromised state, such benefits are doubtful.
User :   within this level of CMV IgG 353u/ml, is it dangerous if i start being pregnant?
Doctor :   As a general physician, my expertise are limited in the field of gynecology.
User :   could doctor who has experiences in this field come and explain me?
User :   "immunocompromised state" what does this mean?
User :   hello doctor
User :   are u there?
Doctor :   I do know that based on your report, the infection is reducing, but without further reports, such as the viral load markers, DNA PCR tests, i cannot suggest a valuable comments on it.
Doctor :   Immunocompromised state refers to a condition where one is debilitated due to chronic infections, poor nutrition and so on.
User :   example: if next two months, i test again and my result remain the same CMV igg 353u/ml, what does this mean?
Doctor :   It means that the infection can be still active.
User :   If my result still the same for next two months, cmv igg equal 353u/ml, so what does this mean??
Doctor :   A physical examination and further evaluation may be needed.
User :   hello doctor
User :   are u there?
Doctor :   I would suggest you to consider taking an opinion from a gynecologist through specialist opinion who can answer you better, if you can opt for pregnancy.
