Rubella Antibody Screening


Why is it important to be immune to German measles

German measles or rubella is a mild illness in terms of its symptoms. However, it can be dangerous for a pregnant woman because the Rubella virus could cause severe abnormalities in the baby.  There could be nothing worse for you than succeeding in becoming pregnant, catching German Measles in the first 4 months of that pregnancy and then having to consider having an abortion. You should eliminate this possibility right at the beginning by screening for the virus. 
 

I have had German measles before, so I must be immune

Do not be complacent if you have had German measles before or if you have been vaccinated in school. This does not necessarily mean that you are out of danger. There are other virus infections that can mimic Rubella clinically, and 5% of Rubella vaccinations fail to give immunity. 
 

How can I ensure immunity against Rubella

First, you need to test whether you are immune to Rubella. This is a simple procedure merely requiring you to send a blood sample to the laboratory. Then, if the test results indicate that you are not immune, you must be made immune. All you have to do is ask your family doctor to give you a vaccination.  Remember that this vaccination should be given only during a normal period when there is no question of you being pregnant. 
 

Do I have to wait before trying to get pregnant

It is necessary to use contraceptives like condoms or spermicide pessaries for at least 21/2 months after the vaccination. Six to eight weeks after the vaccination, a repeat antibody screening test is carried out to check on your response to the vaccine.
