I'm not immune to rubella

Hi! I have been going through testing for infertility and everything came back great...even had the HSG today and all was well. However, my doctor just called and said I am not immune to rubella, even though I had the shot last year. He said I need to get the shot and then wait three months. Any thoughts or comments on this? The thought of ANOTHER three months is killing me!

Three months?! When my RE made me take the Rubella shot I only had to wait a month. That sounds like an awfully long time to me. I guess different drs believe different things & some are more conservative than others. Hang in there!

I too only had to wait 30 days...

My doctor told me that I wasn't immune to Rubella either...so he said after my period started I should get the shot and then wait 4-6 weeks.....but my period never started. So I'm 16 weeks pregnant and not immune to Rubella, it's a slim to none chance of getting it....but I'm sure I'll get the shot before the next pregnancy. I'd take your chances...you need to take advantage of the HSG ( most fertile 3 months post) I had HSG done in July and got pregnant in September. Good Luck!

i dont have problems with rubella, but i was wondering what an HSG is?

Hi d! An HSG is a dye test where they insert dye into your fallopian tubes to make sure they're free of blockages. It's pretty crampy & painful, but still a good test to have. I'd suggest discussing this with your dr. Also, before you get it done, take 3 or 4 advil a 1/2 hr before the procedure, it helps A LOT. Good luck!
