Does a positive result for CMV IgG indicate a current or past infection?

Generally a test for IgG antibodies can determines exposure to the disease agent (or vaccination). The immune system responds to regions. There is a rough correlation between the amount of antibody to the concentration of antigen (what triggers the immune response) and level of antibodies, but it isn't absolute. CMV IgG indicates past infection, and does not say anything about current infection.

Cmv igg was 384 and cmv igm negative what does it mean?

The CMV antibody test measures two different kinds of antibodies, IGG and IGM. After you are infected with the CMV virus, your body first produces IGM antibodies, then IGG antibodies. The IGM antibodies disappear in several weeks to months, but the IGG antibodies stay for life, giving you long-term immunity. A positive IGG result and a negative IGM result mean that you do not have an acute infection, but you are immune to CMV because you were exposed some time in the past. If you are pregnant, this is good news as it means that you do not have to worry about contracting a CMV primo-infection, which can cause severe problems for the baby, ranging from hearing loss to stillbirth. Unlike the answer above states, prior infection with CMV does NOT prevent you from catching a second strain of CMV (much like having the flu once doesn't mean you can't get it again). In fact, being infected with more than one strain of CMV is actually quite common. So if you are pregnant, you should minimise your risk of contracting CMV. Contact with infected urine and saliva are the two most common ways of contracting the virus so try to avoid contact with either of these.

It looks like you had a sucessful vaccination against CMV or that you had an infection and fought it off. Not knowing the units it may be that you currently have CMV.

As far as i know IGG positive means you had infection in the past and IGM negative means u r not infected currently.

Does the positive result in CMV before pregnancy is to be worried about?

Not necessarily. If your IgM result was +ve, then yes you should be worried. You should go and talk to you doctor about what this means, but it indicates recent CMV infection which puts your baby at risk of congenital abnormalities. However, if you IgG was +ve, the infection was not recent and so you should not be worried. But be vigilant about your hygeine to avoid a second infection (as prior infection with CMV doesn't prevent you from catching it again), and also to avoid any other type of infection.
