    Default MMR Vaccine

    I've been recommended to have my mmr vaccine well in actuality it's just the booster really, but it will delay my ttc by a month. I've just mc and want to ttc ASAP. It can wait it's not that I'm non immune but the booster is recommended. I asked if I could wait and the dr has said non committal answers. What I suppose I'm asking is what will happen if I get the booster and have a ttc accident? (Being careful but accidents happen)

    I'm pretty sure the danger is theoretical; erring on the side of caution. It's an attenuated virus and not the same as the illness so likely reasonably safe if you accidentally fall pregnant. I would still follow the Dr's orders though, just in case.

    Yeah, at this point it is a theoretical risk. They haven't found any evidence of Congenital rubella syndrome in those babies where women where vaccinated when they didn't know they were pregnant. Having said that, you should probably heed the advice of doctors and wait a month. I contracted rubella in pregnancy, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Good luck.

    @Atropos and @beebs are right on the money, it a hypothetical risk. I've had a client become pregnant straight after vax before with no issue.
    If you require booster I'd say it's because your rubella level is below 40. General immunity is anything over 10 but for pregnancy immunity level needs to be over 40.
    In regards to pregnancy it's the most important (well it and 'flu) to have as getting MM or R in pregnancy can result in an array of issues from miscarriage,to congenital abnormalities.
