hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.IGM antibodies when high indicate new infection by an organism.These can cross over via placenta and harm fetus hence with such high titres it was advised for you not to conceive.Wait till levels come down .Use barrier methods and also ask about non hormonal pills since hormonal pills are ineffective with some anti-tb drugs.Take care.
