Q. My wife is 25 years old and pregnant. She had red rashes and fever for three days in the early stage of pregnancy and consulted a doctor. She consumed Voveran for five days. Later our gynaecologist suggested a TORCH test. The results of the test are as follows: Toxoplasma IgG antibodies - negative; Toxoplasma IgM antibodies - negative; Rubella IgG antibodies - positive > 250 IU/ML; Rubella IgM antibodies - negative; Cytomegalovirus IgG antibodies - positive > 8.0 IU/ML and Cytomegalovirus IgM antibodies - negative. What does the report indicate? Will it affect her pregnancy?

A.  IgG is the past infection; it will not affect pregnancy. IgM is the present infection. Since this is negative, the pregnancy will not be affected.
