I have never heard of that, but I don't know a lot about rubella shots. I am going to assume a doctor told you this. The reason is probably because it can cause serious birth defects or even death to the fetus. Another reason could be because it could cause rebella in the fetus. If you want to know more, call the doctor that told you this and ask more questions. The rubella vaccination has been suspected to cause major birth defects if the woman becomes pregnant within 4 weeks after receiving the vaccination.

You should wait for at least three months before getting pregnant again. Your doctor will do some tests to prevent further miscarriages.

Answer-- Get all your vaccinations done BEFORE you get pregnant. You don't want live vaccine viruses around while you are pregnant, because they can hurt the developing baby. Some vaccines are live viruses and other vaccines are dead viruses, so check with your doctor which is which. As long as you get pregnant about 4-6 months after your final vaccination (for a live virus vaccine) you should be OK. Also, don't let the new baby get vaccines too young, or too many all at once. "Get your immunities to common childhood diseases (mumps and measles) tested. If you received the shots during certain years and lot numbers, they might not have worked. This is to avoid birth defects. Wait a while (at least three months) after getting the shot, before you get pregnant." "Getting rubella (German measles) early in pregnancy can cause birth defects. A simple blood test can tell if you have immunity. If you are not immune, a vaccine given at least 3 months before getting pregnant will protect you from getting rubella in the future."

Yes, for three months while they are pregnant.

Yes! some will tell you that it is not possible but it is. I had a period for three months after getting pregnant and still delivered a beautiful health baby girl!

Women without immunity should receive immunization against rubella provided that they avoid pregnancy for a period of three months following immunization.

If your already pregnant and have sexual intercourse during anytime of your pregnancy you can not get pregnant.

It probably means you are only ovulating every 3 months. If you are planning on getting pregnant any time soon, you should probably talk to your Dr.

3 months and 2 weeks 13 weeks = 3 months whether you are pregnant or not. So--3 months and 1 week.three and a half months

User Avatar

Yes but I think the doctors say that you need to wait like three months before you try again!

User Avatar

Yes you are now well and truly pregnant you will have to wait for another three months for your big day.

Rubella isn't usually a serious disease in children, a vaccine is a simple way to prevent it, however it can be very serious if a pregnant woman becomes infected. If she developed rubella during pregnancy, especially during the first three months, the infection is likely to spread to the foetus and cause congenital rubella syndrome (CRS). Up to 20% of the infants born to mothers infected with rubella during the first trimester of pregnancy have CRS. CRS can result in miscarriage, stillbirth and severe birth defects. The most common of the defects are blindness, deafness, heart damage and mental retardation.

An HTP should still be positive at 3 months

No, and with some tabletys you are advised against getting pregnant for a further three months. Pregnant women are generally advised against visiting malarious areas.
