two days back i conceived again and went to doctor and she advised for a Torch Panel test I had a TORCH test done, which
indicated ANITBODY TO RUBELLA (IgG) 18.01 U/ML
ANTIBODY TO CYTOMEGALOVIRUS (IgM)-(value-0.24 negative
ANTIBODY TO CYTOMEGALOVIRUS (IgG)- (value - 53.8 U/ml Positive).
The other parameters were negative. I went and shown th ereports to doctor ,she advised us to take TORCH FREE CAPSULES for 1 month and said let us hope for the best,which worried us a lot

Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Ig M antibody suggests active and recent infection.
Ig G antibody suggests previous infection or immunity.

Since cytomegalovirus Ig M is negative, you do not have active infection and your baby will not be affected. Nothing to worry.

I recommend you to:
1. Continue folic acid tablets
2. Get a detailed anomaly scan at 20 weeks.
3. Have balanced diet XXXXXXX in iron and calcium.
4. Moderate exercise.
5. Be tension free and enjoy your pregnancy.

Hope this helps. You can write to me anytime for further clarifications.

Regards and take care,

Hello,

I appreciate your quick response.

Yes, You need to take both folic acid and TORCH FREE capsules for one month.

Anomaly scan is an ultrasound done routinely on all pregnant women to make sure baby is growing well.

Hope i have answered both your queries.

Take care,
