Are the risks to the fetus the same if I contracted CMV for the first time 6 weeks prior to conception? (Rather than after)


Posted by Worried mom

I have been diagnosed with CMV (both IgG and IgM positive). It is almost certainly a primary infection as I was negative in 2008. I am 10 days pregnant and it is most likely that I would've been infected at least 6 weeks prior to conceiving. Are the risks still the same as contracting the virus after conception? I'm wondering whether the 6 weeks would've allowed my body to develop enough antibodies to act as a protection to the fetus. Thank you.
