Hi doctor,

My wife is pregnant with our second child. She is seven weeks pregnant. I have doubts regarding CMV, toxoplasmosis and rubella (Rubéole-French). In all three tests, IgG is positive and IgM negative. Is this fine?

We have our appointment tomorrow but we can not wait until then. Kindly clarify.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

I have gone through your history. As the IgM (immunoglobulin M) test is negative and IgG (immunoglobulin G) tests are positive, she has no recent infection and has immunity against both the viruses, so she is absolutely fine; you should not worry about it.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

So there is nothing to worry about?

Secondly, I have attached her urine test reports (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). It shows a lot of epithelial cells and positive bacteria. Is it a cause of concern?

What should we do to reduce it?



Welcome back to

I understand your concern.

No need to worry about it; yes, it is normal. Urine reports (attachment removed to protect patient's identity) show infection. To get a prescription, kindly book an appointment with me at Drink a lot of warm water and avoid oily and spicy food.

Dear doc, Happy new year to you & your family. My wife is in her 26th week of her pregnancy. She did GTT, blood & urine test at her consulting hospital. The duty doc said her Fasting sugar is borderline, platelets are bit less rest everything is ok. But I see in her urine test there is bacteria, they didn’t say anything. Could you plz go through the reports & provide your expert opinion. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for your advice doc. Couple of things:

2. Secondly for resolving bacteria issue should she take some antibiotics or just by drinking water it will be resolved.
