I've been ttc #2 for over a year and just switched to a new RE who decided to test my varicella titers when doing my blood work. It came back "equivocal", and he wants me to get the vaccine. The only time I had cp was when I was a few weeks old and all my siblings had it (very mild). I looked up the stats and there is a less than 2% chance that my baby would have birth defects IF I even contracted chicken pox during the first 20 weeks. After ttc for so long and having a recent failed IUI, I don't really want to put ttc on hold for this, but I also don't want my child to be negatively affected.
Everything I read talks about how people want their kids to get cp because it's so much worse as an adult. Would those same people recommend it for their adult child if they never developed immunity? Other than reactions like "mild rash" or "sore injection site", is there any severe, documented risk that I need to worry about with getting this vaccine? (ps, I'm not new, just a new screen name)
