Is my wife's torch test report normal?

Q: My 34 years old wife is 12 weeks pregnant. Her torch test report is showing Toxoplasma IgM level is 1.018. Its normal value is less than 0.8. What should I do? Should we terminate the pregnancy?

A:You need to make sure that the report is correct. It would be better to repeat the test from the same lab as well as from another good lab. If the result shows IgM positive and rising titre, there are chances that your baby can get infected. If you do not want to take slightest risk, then termination is the option, though at 12 weeks it is not as easy. The most important point is to make sure that the test result is indeed correct.
