The tests show that you have been exposed to rubella and CMV in the past, but there is no active infection now. The rubella IgG level could be due to having been vaccinated in the past. In any case, the results indicate you are immune to these 2 viruses and it is safe to plan for pregnancy. If the rubella test had been negative, they would have recommended that you get the immunization before trying to get pregnant, but since you are already immune, you are good to go! Hope this helps.
