Because the management will differ depending on the gestational age.

Hi,

According to your wife's reports:
She is having Rubella and Cytomegalo virus IgG positive and IgM negative.
It indicates previous infection or immunity to the infection.
So that may not affect the present pregnancy generally.
But as IgG levels are high sometimes there is possibility of reactivation.
And usually reactivation will not the affect the baby much.
So she can continue the pregnancy with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations to detect any possible anomaly at the earliest.
You discuss these possibilities with your doctor and follow her advice.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
I can understand your anxiety.
But according to the diagnostic criteria, it can only be said that most possibly there may not be any problem to mother and baby.
Giving 100% guarantee is not possible just by seeing the reports.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi I am now 31 years old. I am married since 3 years 8 months. I have one miscarriage after six months of my married life. After that we stopped planning for kids for about 1 and half years. So totally 2 years we managed by using some safety measures like condoms. Since 1 year and 8 months I am trying to get conceived. In these 3 years I had some disturbances like losing my both father-in-law and mother-in-law (due to health problems). One year back we have consulted doctor and investigations were done. All the test results are fine but they have detected tuberculosis in laparoscopy done. Now I am under treatment of Tuberculosis since 5 and half months. At the time of Laparoscopy that doctor tested for rubella in the month of July, 2011 and it is 0.68 and they gave me some vaccination. Again I have visited another doctor and now they tested for miscarriage and now the rubella is showing as 3.25. Along with TB medicines now I am taking treatment for rubella. My worry here is I badly need kids. Can any one tell me that what is my condition and how can I get conceived soon?
