Hello Alam, thanks for your question
TORCH stands for toxoplasma, rubella (German measles), cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes simplex, and other infectious diseases, such as HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B, and measles. Pregnant women need to pay attention to the above diseases, considering that this infection has the potential to be passed on to the fetus so that it risks causing fetal disability or death.
In detecting the presence of TORCH infection, pregnant women will take a blood sample to be tested for antibody serology, including IgG and IgM for each of these diseases. Here are some things that you need to pay attention to in interpreting the results of the TORCH examination:
IgM is an antibody that appears in the acute phase, indicating a current infection
IgG is an antibody that appears in the chronic phase, indicating that a person has been infected in the past or has now recovered
Based on the test results that you have presented above, you will see a positive (reactive) result for anti-Rubella IgG and CMV IgG. This means that your wife had been infected with Rubella and CMV in the past, and now has immunity to both. There are no acute infections from toxoplasma, rubella, CMV, or herpes simplex, so there is no need for special treatment / treatment at this time. If you and your wife are planning to have children, now is a good time to program it. If deemed necessary, the doctor may recommend re-examination of TORCH during pregnancy, when your wife experiences symptoms of the disease that leads to the infection.
Hopefully the information I convey is useful
