I am 8 weeks pregnant. I had a TORCH test 4 weeks ago in which my CMV IgG was 116.6 and CMV IgM was 0.17. I had a follow up test 2 days ago and my CMV IgG was 138 and CMV IgM was still 0.17. Based on my conversation with 2-3 doctors, I am not sure whether this poses a threat to the foetus or to the baby after birth. Kindly advise me on the same as I am quite confused about this.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Since the IgG increased after 2 weeks, it shows a recent infection with TORCH and hence may pose a threat to the baby. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
