Brief Answer: Depends on IgM values Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. In diagnosing Rubella infection, both IgG and IgM antibodies will play role. Usually Rubella IgG levels above 10 iu/ml indicate: -If associated IgM levels are less than 1iu/ml, past infection or immunity to rubella infection. -If associated IgM levels are above 1iu/ml, indicates recent infection. Reference: WWW.WWWW.WW So, if your IgM levels are less than 1iu/ml, no need to worry. If IgM levels also elevated, there is possibility of recent infection and that may harm the fetus. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the response, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
