Welcome to ehealthforum.
If your tests results have come back positive for CMV and Rubella infection, consider delaying your pregnancy plans and get started on treatment first as the infection will affect the baby and may cause miscarriage. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
