Hi, just wondering what the consequences can be of falling pregnant within three months of having rubella and whooping cough vaccines? I've been told to wait three months, but I'm just curious as to why. Also wondering if we need to wait three months after DH has vaccines or if it's only applicable to the woman carrying the baby? Thanks!

I would wait the three months.
The rubella vaccine uses live virus particles so theoretically there is a potential risk.
The CDC say the following with regard to the vaccine & pregnancy;
- Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and its component vaccines should not be administered to women known to be pregnant. Because a risk to the fetus from administration of these live virus vaccines cannot be excluded for theoretical reasons, women should be counseled to avoid becoming pregnant for 28 days after vaccination with measles or mumps vaccines or MMR or other rubella-containing vaccines. 6
- If vaccination of an unknowingly pregnant woman occurs or if she becomes pregnant within 4 weeks after MMR . . . vaccination, she should be counseled about the theoretical basis of concern for the fetus; however, MMR . . . vaccination during pregnancy should not be regarded as a reason to terminate pregnancy. 1
- Rubella-susceptible women who are not vaccinated because they state they are or may be pregnant should be counseled about the potential risk for CRS (congenital rubella syndrome) and the importance of being vaccinated as soon as they are no longer pregnant. 10
- A registry of susceptible women vaccinated with rubella vaccine between 3 months before and 3 months after conception – the "Vaccine in Pregnancy (VIP) Registry" – was kept between 1971 and 1989. No evidence of CRS occurred in the offspring of the 226 women who received the current RA 27/3 rubella vaccine and continued their pregnancy to term. 10
