Hi,

Because of the theoretical risk of transmission of live attenuated
rubella vaccine virus to the developing fetus, women known to be
pregnant should not receive an RCV (rubella-containing vaccines). In addition, pregnancy should be avoided for 28 days after receipt of an RCV. Rubella-containing vaccines are unlikely to cause menstrual irregularities. You may go for USG (ultrasonography) pelvis to rule out conception (LMP-13.11.18).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
