Hi,

My wife underwent TORCH test. The result of CMV is 95. I heard it should be less than 95. She is pregnant for 3 months. Please advise.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The presence of antibodies against CMV may be indicative of past infection.
  • You may have to repeat the test after two weeks to compare the level of the antibodies.
  • If the level is same or decreased, then it is a past infection. If the level increases, then it may be a new infection.
  • In that cause you may need to go for CMV culture for her.
  • And if a new infection is there, your wife needs to be treated against the infection for good maternal and fetal outcomes.
