Pathology report, parvo virus. MC mentJune 23 2011 at 3:36 PM

This is regarding the M/C that I posted about a while back, at 16 weeks of pregnancy. The fetal demise occurred around 14 weeks. The genetic screening all came back normal.
There was a lot of disease testing done, everything normal except the baby tested positive for parvo virus. Parvo virus can cause miscarriage. However, they did not find parvo virus in MY blood stream or even anti-bodies to the parvo virus. So I've never been exposed to it.
I am wondering if the parvo virus could have originated with the donor? That seems to be the only possible explanation, other than a lab error. I know donors are often screened for STDs, but I'm not sure if they are screened for other diseases.
I am concerned because I have more more frozen embryos and wonder if they are infected as well.
