Thanks for the query.
IGm antibodies present in the blood indicate current infection while IGg antibodies indicate either immunization or the past infection.
Since IGm levels are normal and IGg levels are high in your girl friend,it means she has adequate antibodies for rubella and cytomegalovirus( CMV ).
There is nothing to worry as every thing is all right.
This is a normal report.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
