Hello..
the positive rubella IgG test means that you are immune to rubella and cannot get the infection.what ever your doctor have said-its true dont worry...you are naturally vaccinated..

I had got my blood test last Aug. according to the report it says, Rubella IgG is negative with value of 0.12. what does it mean?

Dr Nikhil Datar Could you please help answer her question?

Dr Nikhil Datar

I can't understand the meaning of "rubella positive". is it active infection? what is the viral load? at what gestation ?  so any parameters decide whether the issue is a serious one? best is that akriti meets the specialist and sorts it.

Dr Nikhil Datar

besieds that she starts from rubella and ends on chicken pox. which is confusing
