The presence of IgG antibody against rubella is a sign that the patient has had the disease at some point in life and now is immunized. The presence of IgG antibodies is often called a serological scar, or a mark that the patient was infected in the past. The existence in the blood of large amounts of IgM antibodies against rubella, for example, is an indication that infection has recently been acquired. So a serology IgM positive result for rubella indicates ongoing infection. When the patient makes a serology rubella, there are basically three possible outcomes: 1. IgM and IgG non-reactive. 2. IgM reactive and IgG non-reactive. 3. IgM non-reactive and IgG reactive. 1. What does the result: IgM and IgG non-reactive? If in your serology rubella both IgM and the IgG come as no reagents, it means you do not have antibodies against rubella, or has never been exposed (a) to this virus and is susceptible to an infection. If you have been vaccinated (a), but its IgG is non-reactive, it means that vaccination was not effective, which is an indication to repeat the vaccine. A pregnant woman who has negative serology for rubella need to be very careful not to come into contact with anyone infected, because, as she has no antibodies against rubella, it runs the risk of contamination during pregnancy. Therefore, a pregnant with positive serology for IgM means she probably infected with the rubella virus in the last 2-6 weeks, being at risk of having a fetus with malformations, especially if the pregnancy is in the first quarter. In your case it is clear that IgM is increasing initially meaning a recent infection and hence affecting the fetus Reference values for rubella IgM: No reactive: less than 0.6 IU / mL Undetermined: 0.6 to 0.79 IU / mL Reactive: greater than 0.79 IU / mL If yu need to discuss personally, you are welcome to ask personal chat.

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Take care.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT

How to avoid shin splint (front lower leg pain)
Shin splints, medically known as medial tibial stress syndrome (mtss), refers to pain in the shins - the front lower legs. It is an inflammatory condition of the front part of the tibia. The pain is brought on by strenuous activity, more commonly in stop-start sports such as squash, tennis or basketball. Running too much on hard surfaces is also a common cause of shin splints.

These tips may help you avoid suffering with shin splints.

-use proper fitting shoes with good support
-make sure the insoles are shock-absorbing. If you have flat feet, good insoles are vital
-avoid hard surfaces, uneven terrain, or slanted slopes
-increase your intensity gradually
-make sure you are warmed up properly before doing exercise.

Its been 4 years since your last pregnancy which unfortunately had ended in a miscarriage. The medicines given to you must have resulted in ovulation, and the doctors must have adviced you to have sexual relations in the ovulatory period. But if this has not resulted in a pregnancy over 6 cycles, it means there is a need to evaluate your fallopian tube patency. Patency of the fallopian tubes is done by many methods: 1. Hsg - hysterosalpingography, which is an x ray taken when a dye is injected in your uterus 2. Sonosalpingography, where saline introduced in uterine cavity is seen on sonography to assess fallopian tubal patency 3. Hysterolaparoscopy. Here hysteroscopy will evaluate uterus and its lining, and laparoscopy will be used to assess the peritoneum, ovaries, fallopian tubal patency etc tubal patency will need to be established before taking up iui. So it is prudent to go for any of the tests mentioned above for tubal patency. If you want to go for ivf, tubal status need not be checked because in ivf we bypass the function of the tube i. E intratubal fertilisation (as this is made to happen -" invitro")

You should go for urine pregnancy test. If its negative, then there is nothing to worry. If you are feeding your child then there are possibilities of delaying of menstruation.

Hi lybrate-user a woman with negative blood group married to a man with positive blood group can have a baby who can be positive or negative. If baby is negative, there will be no problems. If baby has positive blood group, the when the baby's blood enters your body, you will produce antibodies against these cells. Something like what happens during an infection. The first pregnancy is usually not affected. These antibodies can affect the next pregnancy and harm the baby if the baby is also positive. So you will have to do tests in early pregnancy and mid pregnancy to make sure you are not producing any antibodies and take an injection after the delivery or any bleeding during pregnancy or abortions. This will prevent the antibody production and help the babies. Take care.

Failing to do Foreplay can ruin mood or leave you unsatisfied. Sex without foreplay means you’re not taking your needs into consideration, because foreplay is much more important to women than to men. Foreplay is a set of emotionally and physically intimate acts between couple meant to create sexual arousal and desire for sexual activity. Vagina secretes natural lubricating solution which is secreted by bartholin's gland. Foreplay also helps in secreting natural lubricant which will improve sex life.
