rubella/ german measels how long is it contagious before signs show? Rss

hi all,

just a quick one (i hope)

my friend called today to tell me her DS has german measels.

we are ttc at the moment and i was wondering how long someone has to have german measels befor they show sign as i was in contact with him last week?

i am concerned as i know my resistance is low (i know i should have had a booster but didn't oops!) should i be concerned ?

Hi brandis bear-

I recently had a similar scare, (although it turned out I wasn't pregnant anyway!)

My dr told me that some immunity, even if it's low, is better then none! I think measles has a 5-7 day incubation period, but your dr ca confirm this. If you're worried, just see your dr to set your mind at ease!
