duitse massels
Good morning, I am 10 weeks pregnant and visit a friend who's baby had "duitse massels"(At time she didn't know what she had). My moms said she think I had it when I was little. Do I need to be concern as my friend said that she got a injection against it before conceiving.

If you were not in contact with the baby and your friend does not get German measles, then you would be safe. As a precaution, you could get your doctor to do a bood test to check whether you are immune.
