You can be tested to see if you are immune. If you are, you do not need the vaccine.

Thanks for the response i will def go get the vac.
I did do a bloodtest and my gynae said that i have to get it as soon as possible.
I also have to go back on the pill for 3 months which im not happy abt but he did advise me, i have been trying to fall preg and this is just gonna push things back longer.
I guess i have to.

Having German measles during pregnancy can be extremely harmful to your baby. Ask yourself, " Is it worth the risk?"  I wouldn' t think so. Get the vaccine just to be safe - it' s the responsible thing to do.
