Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cytomegalovirus or CMV infection is an infectious disease caused by the CMV virus. CMV infection is not a dangerous disease and does not cause health problems because the immune system can control the virus infection. However, once the body is infected with the CMV virus, the virus can last a lifetime in the patient's body, and serious health problems can occur in people with weakened immune systems, such as postoperative organ transplant patients or HIV sufferers, fetuses from infected pregnant women and infants of mothers infected breastfeeding.
Fetuses at risk of CMV infection are fetuses of pregnant women who were infected during pregnancy or shortly before pregnancy. Whereas fetuses from pregnant women who were infected long before pregnancy (so that pregnant women already have an immune system against the CMV virus since before pregnancy), do not cause fetal disease. In fact, the mother's immune system can reach the placental blood stream to the fetus. This is good.
As for the results of CMV serological tests that you have lived, illustrate the formation of the immune system against the CMV virus due to infection that occurred long before pregnancy. This does not cause any adverse effects on the fetus and does not need any treatment for you. However, again, this examination is only a supplementary one, where the results must be reconciled with your clinical condition obtained based on your medical interview, direct examination by your doctor. In fact, not infrequently, re-examination or other supporting examinations are needed. Therefore, consult your doctor again so that you get clear information about the certainty of your health and illness.
Thus hopefully useful.
