    I was looking through my green book today and came to the first blood results part. It said rubella detected!?!?!?!?? Why would they not tell me this? I have read it is very dangerous for pregnant ladies!!!

    I would check it carefully does it mean immunity to rubella detected?

    Yes, it definitely means that they detected immunity to rubella! Don't worry, it's exactly the result you'd expect if you've had the rubella vaccination :)

    read exactly what it says, it should say something like rubella immunoglobulin/antibodies detected - which means you are immune. Trust me, you want it to say detected on there as that means your safe

    Be worried if you turn up to your midwife and she says 'Despite the MMR vaccine you received, your are not immune to Rubella.' Imagine my shock!!! Lovely!

    Hey Dollface, mine says exactly the same (rubella detected and everything else negative) except under the rubella it says something along the lines "small amounts detected, enough to be immune".
