Hello, I m infected with CMV for some years now, I ve found it our during my previuos pregnancy(now my daughter is 3,5 years, seems to be fine).We are planning a second child now, so I went for an CMV test, which showed both IgG and IgM positive, which, as I understand, means the reactivation of virus .Can I get pregnant now, or should I wait till IgM disappear? Thank you for your answer,

Hello Tania. I would advise that you wait for the IgM to disappear. As you know, IgM means that your body has had recent exposure to the virus and I would advise that you wait for pregnancy at this time.

Be well, Dr. Kimberly
