Positive IgM toxoplasma Laboratory results indicate that you are currently infected with toxoplasma. Then the next laboratory results which show equivocal IgM results means that there is a vague result that is there is a Toxoplasma infection or is there another non-specific germ infection which is non specific. Pregnant programs should be done after treatment is complete and laboratory results show that IgM is negative. Toxoplasma in pregnancy can have harmful effects on the fetus such as:
hydrocephalus microcephalus disorders of the eye disorders in the formation of baby's organs hearing loss / deafness impaired intellectual development / mental retardation These possibilities can occur if the pregnant woman is infected with toxoplasma, so instead do treatment first until the completion of new treatment then you do the pregnancy program . You should do the treatment with experts, according to the instructions and recommended to take medicine from a specialist. You should also consult the results of your lab again with a doctor who recommends doing the examination.
