Can A History Of Rubella Virus Infection Affect Pregnancy?
Peace be upon you, and Allah mercy and blessings.
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly are the results of laboratory tests that you lived before? According to the examining doctor, should further treatment be carried out?
Rubella infections in the past should be able to trigger the immune system to form immunity against the virus. And, if your body is invulnerable, it is very unlikely that a re-infection can occur. However, it should also be understood, that besides Rubella, various other types of infections can also cause fetal developmental disorders in the womb, for example toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, and so on. Therefore, even if you are free from the risk of rubella, it does not mean that you are no longer at risk of experiencing these infections.
Therefore, in your third pregnancy, you need to check yourself back to the doctor or obstetrician to have a thorough examination. Not only blood tests to detect infections, doctors can also do a variety of other tests to detect other factors that can interfere with your pregnancy, for example measuring vital signs, checking blood sugar levels, measuring hemoglobin levels, monitoring nutritional status, and so on. In this way, the risk of disruption in pregnancy can be detected early and treated more optimally.
Hope this helps ...
