Godd day,

I am 8 weeks pregnant and have been advised by the GP the blood test done indicate a high level of rubella antibodies.the results are as follows:
Rubella 1 gM ELISA 0.21 0.00-0.79 Index
Rubella 1gG ELISA H 110.65 0.00-4.99 IU/mL.

PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT THIS MEANS. I HAVE DONE AN INTERNET RESEARCH AND AM SCARE OF WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED.

I await your response.
Regards,

Zan

The IgG is high and the IgM
is low. This suggests that you were exposed in the past and are immune.

Well I'm not an expert but I'd assume a high level of antibodies is good? That you're less likely to get it?
