284738 tn?1283106819 Look at the bright side, O- is called the universal donor because no matter what blood type you have, you can receive blood from someone who is O-. So you could give blood (after your baby is born) and maybe save another baby's life.
Avatar f tn Someone who is rh+ would not have any problems carrying a Rh- baby, O Rh- is the universal blood donor type, meaning that we can donate blood to any other blood group, however we can only recieve blood from O Rh- and I think one other (been too long since university!
Avatar n tn o- is the "universal donor" AB+ is the "universal recipient" according to the following web site O+ and O- parents wouldn't have an A type child. Try it out http://www.biology.arizona.edu/human_bio/problem_sets/blood_types/Into.
Avatar f tn Type O blood is hardest because someone with O type can only receive O type blood. On the other hand Type O is good to have as a donor.
Avatar f tn My Dad is O+ and my Mum is A2B+ but my blood type is B-. How is this possible?
Avatar n tn Congrats! O+ is the most common blood type, which is good because it's easy to get if you need it! They're right too, it's almost universal, you can give your blood to any blood type that is a +, but you can only receive the O's (O- is the universal donor, AB- is the universal recipient). SInce you are positive that means you won't need the Rhogam shot, yay! I'm an O+ too and so glad I didn't need the shot. Congrats on baby!
Avatar m tn O is universal donor so if a donor has an O blood type they can donate to anyone
Avatar n tn however, also being an o+ myself, i would be aware of your labs and make sure they know you are O......beings that O is the universal donor but can only receive from itself. in other words had you needed blood and someone relied on the first blood result they might have killed you. :O) i loved genetics in school!
Avatar f tn They only give you O type blood if they have to because its a neutral blood type and your body wont reject it.
Avatar f tn re o- you need them as we produce antibodies against the + rh factor. O- is the universal donor so any other blood group wont produce antibodies against the - factor.
Avatar f tn There is nothing suspicious about this. Had it been the other way around- type O parents having a type B child- that would have raised serious questions. Sorry to hear your family has been abusive to you.
Avatar f tn I just recently asked what was my blood type because my mom told me I was o-negative. Well I found out that I am but I never received a Rhogam shot. My doctor has never even discussed it with me. Is this a big issue? Will this cause any complications? Has anyone else dealt with this????
Avatar f tn t poison you. O- means you have O type blood (the most common type, however only a small part are negative) however Your rH factor is negative, which means you lack the rH antigen. If baby has a positive blood type and babies blood mixes with yours your body will produce antibodies to the positive antigen which can lead to miscarriage or deformities (rhesus syndrome).
1342206 tn?1276142557 my dad is type O+ and my mother is type A2b+ i don't have clue to what my blood type might be and last time i went to the doctor i forgot to ask them what my blood type was?
Avatar f tn Hi. I am having a baby via donor eggs. My blood type is O positive; so is my husband's. But the donor's is O negative. Does this mean that the baby would need some type of treatment at birth or during the pregnancy? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Patients with blood type O have the longest wait times of all blood types for deceased donor livers, as most people waiting for a liver transplant are blood type O. It is also the most common blood type. We can only except a liver from another type O donor. A living donor liver is the best option for obtaining a transplant quickly.
Avatar n tn Hello cdc29, Just reading your question with regards to blood type. If the father is O pos and the the mother is A pos you can NOT produce an offspring that is B neg. Here is why, we will deal with the blood groups and leave out the Rh factor for simplicity (will explain that after).
Avatar m tn I am blood group o- and would like to know if my potential donor who is o+ is compatible for the purpose of a transplant.
3236191 tn?1451021479 My wife is in desperate need of a liver transplant but is in Australia and I'm in the United States. She is covered under their universal health care as a citizen but I'm not as a non-citizen. I'm most likely a compatible donor due to having type O blood. How would we go about getting the ball rolling on this? Am I going to have to pay any out of pocket expenses? What does the process entail?
Avatar f tn I had it before and will need it again with this little one. I'm not gonna lie the shot hurt a lot lol. Other than that your baby will be fine.
Avatar n tn I'm negative too and my hubby is positive so I got it at 30 weeks actually, but I did have side effects to the shot. It felt like a stomach bug, with nausea and tiredness but past within 24 hours. Totally worth it though.
Avatar n tn You see i am a universal donor for blood, but not a universal receiver, so blood will be hard to come by in my family. Can't they take a piece of liver from someone who matches and let it start growing now?
Avatar m tn I am blood type O and he is OB recessive. I am aware that my blood type is universal so it should be ok for him to receive my liver. His doctor said that most of his liver has been damaged, but seeing he seems to be getting healthy does he have to undergo a transplant? How successful is live liver donor transplant? What should I do to prepare myself for this operation? Are there any hospitals or institutions that do liver cloning?
Avatar f tn Soo the midwife infirmed me that I'm O-negative which means my blood can't pass thru to the babies blood and if it does it can cause my cells to fight against the baby??? She sed I have to have an injection at 28 weeks regardless but if I bang my belly or fall over or anything then I have 48 hours to have this injection before it can cause harm??? Has anyone else ever heard of this???
Avatar n tn why is o blood type recessive
1569123 tn?1332790730 Hello, Ideally for kidney transplantation the blood groups should be the same. Although “Oblood group is universal donor, yet to minimize risk of transplant rejection, doctors might not go ahead with the transplantation if the blood groups are different. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
