Hello doctor,

I am rubella IgG positive 118.90 IU/mL and cytomegalovirus positive 8.87 IU/mL. What does it mean? Can I plan to get pregnant now?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

  • It means that you are either immune, vaccinated or had a recent infection.
  • To rule out a recent infection, you have to repeat the titer after one week. If it does not increase, you can plan for pregnancy.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask for more information.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the reply. What is the difference between TORCH and titer test?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • TORCH test is used to rule out a viral infection during pregnancy. But, a titer is used to see the antibody levels. 

Hope this was useful. Feel free to ask for more information. Good luck.

Thank you doctor,

Do I need to take any medication? My husband's sperm count is 60 million/ml, and motility is 50 percent. Around 80 percentage is in regular shape. Does he need to take any medicine? Please let me know.

  • There is no need for any medications, but you can take Folic acid and your husband can take Coenzyme Q.
