Can she conceive after being rubella positive ?

After 5 failed IUI's we are moving to IVF. Last month (Exactly on March 9) my wife had some rashes in her body and the doctor confirmed it as Rubella (German Measles)positive. She had undergone a blood test after 4 days(March 13) and reported Rubella Antibody IgM as 6.22 Index value and doctor had hold IVF. My question is when can she exactly start IVF treatment ? Do she need to test again before IVF? Is there any chances for her again? And do i need to test before IVF? And what all other tests to be taken before IVF?

If she has active infection , she should not conceive for 3 months as it may lead to miscarriage.. It does not require any treatment. It provides life time immunity.If you will test blood again for rubella, it will remain positive but still she can conceive.
