Question about immunization:

My girlfriend recently recieved the measles, mumps, and rebeulla immunization along with the tatunus one. She said the nurse made her sign a paper saying she wouldn't have sex for 6 months after she recieved the shot. Naturally, this made me question why.

So, my question is, is there any legitimate reason why she shouldn't have sex for 6 months after having recieved her immunizations?

Usually this has to due with birth defects. If she conceives then the fetus could be at risk for serious complications. Several sites (google: mmr defects intercourse) give the same warnings. Some innoculations intefere with the birth control pill also. She should check with her doctor AND get a second opinion.

If i may be so bold and take that question and answer from gcbrowni slightly further.

It is my understanding that immunizations work on the principle of injecting a dead version of the virus or bacteria into the body. So my question is two fold, if the bacteria is dead, then surely the body won't bother to make any reaction to it as it posses no threat. What then is in the injection to make the body respond to it?

The second part of my question is why are immunizations so dangerous that if a baby were to be conceived within the 6 months it would be damaging to it.

Not all vaccines use dead virus or bacteria. Some have live but weakened virus or bacteria in it.
The body makes antibodies for what ever foreign matter (virus or bacteria) in the vaccine even if its dead. The body sees foreign matter and attacks it. The body makes record of this matter but it takes time to do this. Thats what vaccines are for. It showes the body the foreign matter in dead or weakened state. When you get infected the body knows this is foreign matter and attacks it right off before it can multiply.

The weakened virus can still cause damage and thats not good for a growing embryo.

yeap...some are what they call attenuated live viruses. toxoids...antigens without the virulence. the injection is as said to make the body produce antibodies specific for the antigens. antibodies like IgG(?) or A, from the mother are the one of the only main defences. you inject an antigen embryo needs time

I think i should add that that the MMR (measles, mumps, and rebeulla immunization) is contraindicated (big NO NO) in pregnancy. If a woman is of child bearing age, and needs an MMR, a pregnancy test is usually given before the shot. As stated above, the MMR, espically rubella part of the shot, is bad in pregnancy. it is an attenuated virus, and thus, can still infect the baby.

I would imagine that the nurse told your girlfriend no sex for 6 weeks, not six months.

the The 2003 Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices

states:

"Rubella component: Give 1 dose of MMR to women whose rubella vaccination history is unreliable, and counsel women to avoid becoming pregnant for 4 weeks after vaccination. For women of child-bearing age, regardless of birth year, routinely determine rubella immunity and counsel women about congenital rubella syndrome."


4 weeks is the LEAST you should wait to have intercourse.

As others have said, the MMR vaccine contains a mixture of live viruses.

One of these viruses, rubella, is one of the major causes of birth defects in the US. Doctors routinely screen pregnant women for the so called TORCH agents (an acronym for TOxoplasma, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes simplex), all of which can cause severe problems during pregnancy.

Becasue the vaccine contains live Rubella, if she were to become pregnant, some complications could present themselves.

BTW, I'm not an M.D. (but I am 6 months away from a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology), but I would guess the nurse told her 6 weeks instead of 6 months.
