Hello Naghma
Thanks for your query.
Please understand that IgG is immunoglobulin G which is elevated in response to an old infection.
THe values of IgG do not indicate any recent infection.
To know whether you are positive for Rubella and CMV, you have to get Ig M test done, which is immunoglobulin M, which is indicative of a recent infection, if it is elevated.
If your IgM levels are increased, you need to avoid pregnancy till you are vaccinated against Rubella and immune to it.
Your current values do not mean anything, they merely indicate that you are already immune against the diseases.
Please get Ig M tests done, and if negative, you can definitely proceed for pregnancy after proper pre conceptional counselling.
Take care.
