Question: hello, I am 10 weeks pregnant with my first child. Recently my gynaec had asked me to do test for rubella and toxoplasmosis and both have come out positive (IgG) should i be worried with the toxo IgG result ?

Brief Answer: Dont Worry Detailed Answer: Hi, These TORCH group of infection profile are not really necessary and outdated. Moreover IgG indicates its a past infection and is healed. So there is absolutely no need to worry. But remember to get nuchal translucency scan at 12 weeks and anomaly scan at 20 weeks which are normally necessary in all pregnant women.

ok ,thanks doc Doctor has made me do a Antibody to Toxo IgM to find out if it is recent infection so was worried if IgM comes out positive. In case it comes out positive will it have permanent effects on my baby or is it something that can be taken care of with medication. Transclucency scan is scheduled for dec 1st week and i do remember doc telling me about anomaly scan! Regards, XXXXXXX
