Wife had abortion for 24 weeks baby for Spina Bifida and then 12 weeks miscarriage. Later we were recommended for torch test in Nov 2015,toxo igg and igm were positive. She was asked to take spiramycin . She took the course for 6 months and levels are reduced from 9 to 4.Now she is 3 months pregnant. one doctor suggested to continue till delivery another doctor asked to stop the spiramycin. we are in dailama should we use this or not? You had asked me to remind. Please let me know should we use or not. What are the side effects? We had done NT scan recently , it was normal. Prior to pregnancy both of us gone karyotype n homositene and mutation tests. All tests are normal. Are there any chances for NTd this time.should we go for any other scan or tests before anamolies tests?

She can continue spiramycin if IgM levels are high. The next scan to rule out NTD will be the level 2 scan at 18 weeks. before that you can get a double marker or triple marker test done to rule out the risk of having NTD in the baby.
