Hi doctor,

I am 28 years. I have a history of three miscarriages all at 6, 5, and 5 weeks. My torch test came positive for Rubella IgG. Others were nonreactive. Other investigations were normal. I am asking if this could be the cause because I am confused.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concerns. Rubella IgG antibodies indicate either previous old infection or vaccinated status. It is not the cause of the repeated miscarriages.

There are many causes of multiple miscarriages most commonly antiphospholipid syndrome.

I suggest:

  1. Lupus anticardiolipin antibodies test.
  2. Anticoagulant antibodies test.
  3. Anti-beta 2 glycoprotein 1 antibodies test.

Wish you all wellbeing.
