Hello,

First of all, rubella may indeed cause serious defects to a developing fetus particularly early in pregnancy (first trimester). If your IgM levels are within the normal range then we can say it's negative (no rubella). A high IgG level with a negative IgM level usually means past infection. If you're having symptoms suggestive of rubella and the IgM was not diagnostic then further testing would have clarified this issue.

Regardless of the above and whether you really had rubella or not during your pregnancy, the antibody levels have nothing to do with birth defects. Actually, a high IgG level is supposed to be protective against this disease. Roxid has nothing to do with rubella. Roxid is an antibiotic (roxithromycin) and won't treat rubella and won't reduce the antibody levels. I suppose your doctor prescribed roxid for another infection. Perhaps you should clarify this issue with him.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Panagiotis Zografakis, Internal Medicine Specialist
