Rubella test done, negative igm value. History of abortion due to multiple disorders. What does it indicate?

My wife is 24 yrs old. A year back we went for an abortion (13th week) due to multiple disorder like cyst in the neck, single artery . Doctor asked us to leave a gap of ten months. This time when we consulted the doctor she asked to carry out Rubella igg and igm. The value of igg is 96 IU/mL (positive) whereas igm is 0.15 (negative as per reference) activity index. What does it mean?What will be the effects of having igm negative value?please advice asap.

Thanks for your question.
This result shows that your wife has immunity for Rubella infection & that she has not had this infection in the recent past.
Rubella infection during pregnancy has been associated with birth defects & a vaccine is available to save mothers if they don't have immunity. Your wife doesn't need it & is safe from this infection.
Best of luck.
