Hi Julia,

Dr. Bruksch was able to give us an answer to your question!
Here you go, I hope this helps:

The "TORCH TEST" is an acronym for tests for 4 infections--Toxoplamosis, Rubella, CMV and Herpes. Rovamycine (spiramycin) is an antibiotic not formally approved but used often for Toxoplasmosis. It would only apply to this situation if your Toxo test was positive. There are two different antibodies to Rubella ("German measles"). The positive IgG suggests infection (or immunization) in the distant past and no association with this pregnancy loss. You are now immune to rubella. If your toxo test was negative neither potential infection caused your loss. In fact, these infections are rare causes of pregnancy loss, which occurs in 20 % of pregnancies. Your chance of losing your next pregnancy remains 20 % but that means 80% you'll be successful. // L. Bruksch MD

Hi Julia,

I'm still waiting to hear back from our expert but wanted to ask you if you have considered getting a second opinion prior to taking the medications suggested by your OB/GYN?

In the meantime, why don't you call your doctor's office and ask to speak to a nurse-- ask her about any concerns you may have and I would also ask for her to explain your lab results in detail so that you can better understand why you were tested and what your results mean. I understand what it's like to feel anxiety not knowing what is going on with your body and feeling the need to know the answers, that's why while we wait to hear from someone, we encourage you to try to find answers from the person who knows your history best.

Let me know if you're able to talk to someone at your OB/GYNs office.
