I have been ttc for 3 months now and have just finished AF, so about to commence charting etc.
I had a blood test 2 weeks ago, which my GP had only today told me that it showed everything was fine except that my Rubella protection was low.
My GP told me that I would need to get the MMR vaccination either prior to conceiving or after birth, however there would be a chance of me getting rubella (extremely unlikely) but if I did then nothing but bad things can happen to your baby from eye sight, heart problems, brain problems and hearing problems.
My GP also told me that if I have the MMR vaccination now, I cannot ttc for 4 weeks! So have to wait until after this cycle, so January.
I asked my GP what would happen if I did fall pregnant and she basically said she didn't know by saying "there are no studies done on that"!!! Which I thought was strange because there's clearly got to be a reason as to why you shouldn't fall pregnant if they're warning you not to for 4 weeks after the shot! I asked her that and she basically dismissed my question!
I've tried googling but can't really find anything, most topics come up relating to what happens to a baby if they get rubella, but nothing about why you can't conceive within the 4 weeks and what would actually happen if you did.
Anyone have any knowledge, experience, ideas, comments etc?
