Rubella Vacine, Pregnancy & Misscarriage??

Posted By sue on January 25, 1999 at 11:25:39:







I recently had a misscarriage.  My OB/GYN just informed me I am not immune to Rubella and should get a Rubella vaccine before I get pregnant again.  After I have the vaccine he said I would have to wait 3 months before I try to get pregnant again.  I've asked a few friends and relatives that have recently been pregnant and their doctors never mentioned anything to them about not being immune to Rubella.  They were pretty sure the last time they were vaccinated they were a young child.  We are all about the same age so I assume they also are not immune to Rubella.  My sister-in-law was vaccinated after her son was born.  I assume that meant while she was pregnant, she was not immune to Rubella.  I really do not want to wait 3 months to try and get pregnant again.  Can you tell me if it is absoultely necessary for me get the vaccine before I get pregnant again?  What are the odds that I or my child will get Rubella while I'm pregnant if I don't get the vaccine?  Also how long should I wait to get pregnant after having a misscarriage?
