urgent answer needed - german measles
Good Morning Doc

Seems like all the other Docters are very busy this morning.

I am 17 weeks pregnant. I did had signs of miscarraige at 9 weeks but after that everything is going so far good.

People in my office kids/babies have german measles. Is it dangerous for me to be around them. With my first pregnancy I was immune against german measels not sure if they tested me this time.

Thanks.

Hallo 2 time preg.

Were you in contact with the children with German Measles? If not, you should be safe, but for peace of mind you can just visit your gynea to take blood to check your immunity against the disease. The imunity usually last a few years so you should be OK.

Hope this helps
