Is type o blood rare

Common Questions and Answers about Is type o blood rare


Avatar f tn I am o negative blood type as well and i didnt miscarry i only got my first shot at 28 weeks. i dont why they said its your blood type. my doctor was more concerned about me then the baby.
Avatar f tn I'm rh- also, blood type is B-, I got my shots at 28 weeks and 34 weeks, if my baby has a negitive blood type I won't need to get one after she's born.
Avatar f tn You get it 2-3 different times one at beginning of pregnancy, one at 28 weeks, and if baby is born with a different blood type than you,you get one after you give birth. They are given in the hip and not a big deal.
Avatar f tn 9% probability of paternity/maternity (depending on the type of samples used).
Avatar f tn has anyone else had the ant D injection because of their rare blood type?
Avatar n tn By the way, I am O+ type blood. My mom is O-, and my father is O+. I know she had to get a shot because of this RH incompatibility with my father.
Avatar f tn Got Ava's blood type today. Her's is A+, mine is O+, does this mean that her father is A???? We do not know his blood type. I tried to study it but it's all soooo confusing to me. Anyone know the answer to this??
Avatar n tn My fiance just got blood typed as LAN blood type after not knowing his blood type for 23 years, I am O neg. What complications could we have with conceiving and pregnancy?
Avatar n tn O+ is the most common type of blood to have. It is like a universal kind of blood when you donate too, almost anyone can accept it.
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????
1230912 tn?1273496370 A and B blood are dominant over O simply because O has no antigens on the surface of its red blood cells. But antigen D is present in O+ blood. Many A blooded folks are actually AO blooded and some B blooded folks are BO blooded as well. That is precisely why the blood type diet work great with some folks but not so great with others. You gave your son an A- ABO copy and your husband gave your son a O+ ABO copy so yes he did test positive for the A blood group he actually is A-/O+.
Avatar f tn I am O Negative I have a rare blood type how do I know what blood type my child will be ?
Avatar f tn but told me that just having low progesterone was rare. Is it rare??? All my other tests so far were normal (day 3 blood, ultrasound). He seems to think that even me going on progesterone this month - if I do get pregnant - that it will just delay the pregnancy. I'm so scared!!!! Next month he wants to take a day 3 ultrasound and a day 5 with a dye (to look for things wrong with me?) - could something like this be lowering my progesterone?
140033 tn?1189759435 I opted for the surgery. Afterwards I was told that I have a rare blood type and was given human blood product containing antibodies (via syringe in my hip). They said I would need another shot of this product if I ever miscarried again or gave birth. And that my rare blood type MAY have contributed to the problems w/ the pregnancy. Or a combination of mine and hubbys blood types may have done something.
Avatar f tn No and yes. Type O blood type is caused by the recessive gene of O,O alleles. That means that the only allele a person with type O blood can pass down is O. Someone with B type blood must have the genotype B,O-so one that person's parents must have to have a B blood type or an A,B blood type in order to pass that down. HOWEVER there is a VERY rare condition that I studied while I was taking genetics. I just can't remember what it's called.
Avatar n tn I think Dumb *** is well named. He fails to understand that people are serious and have important quaetions and information to share. He is a dumb ***.
Avatar m tn First there is ABO which is type A, type B, Type O or type AB. When someone has O, they express the geneotype O,O meaning they received one O allele or trait from each parent. So two parents with O blood can only give O alleles and therefore the resulting child could only show O type blood. (There are very very rare exceptions to this rule- but they do exist.) By "hr" do you mean the Rh factor, which typically expresses itself as Rh+ or Rh-?
Avatar n tn Last month I was in a similar situation, however I had only had 3 pretty regular periods since I had stopped breast feeding, I was 5 days later than I had been for the previous 2 months. I called the doctor and they had me come in for a blood test. [It is my understanding that there is a higher rate of false negatives for a urine test, especially when you are only a week or so late.] Unfortunatly my test came back w/ a 0.0 hcg level.
Avatar f tn 0- is not rare but it the universal blood type.. It is the only type of blood that can mix into any other type of blood with out any complications... Although being pregnant and having this blood type the body generally does try to regect the baby.. It is VERY NORMAL to get that shot actually they generally give every pregnant woman that shot just in case so the body doesnt regect the baby..
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 That would be my concern about the possible link between MS and your back problems. The next link is your Type I Diabetes (even though you have a rare form of it). It was always assumed because of differences in tissue typing that MS and Type I Diabetes were not associated. But, last summer when I was looking up stuff for Jazzy Fizzle (Where IS she anyway???
Avatar f tn I didn't inherit my dad's blood, he is O- I think , I don't even know my blood type but I know it isn't O-. I should probably find out my blood type....
4907540 tn?1361980455 Pituitary apoplexy can be quite serious and you may or may not have another issue - but you may or may not have had the right testing, at the right time - and even the MRI should be a certain type (dynamic pituitary MRI). I know it is difficult in the UK to get copies of testing - but I would try.
Avatar f tn For example, my husband's blood type is A, why does he know this? Because he thinks it was on his Army dogtag 30 years ago. Mine is O. Why do I know this? Because I think my doctor told it to me once. If I had a paternity question I was trying to solve using blood types, I would certainly not rely on such poor evidence. I'd test again, and test him again and then talk to an expert, before I would use blood tests as the basis of accusations.
Avatar m tn I'm also type 1 (was only Stage 1 though) and am waiting for my 3 month post results in 2 weeks, I'm not really that stressed, if I clear it Yippee if not, then at least I have given my liver it's best shot but my specialist told me that even if I don't clear it I will probably die with Hep C not from it!
Avatar f tn Rheumatologist thinks igg4 and just took some blood for it. My question is how do you get a definitive diagnosis for igg4? Is it blood or do they need to do some kind of biopsy? Has anyone else had submandibular or tongue swelling? I have had over 200 blood tests. I am coming up negative for everything. My ANA is negative and my sed rate is normal. My c3 levels are low. The Drs keep checking C3 and C4. I am hoping once I get a diagnosis I may start getting some relief.
572651 tn?1531002957 The Mayo has more precise testing on o-bands( if you have o-bands in the CSF and not in your blood serum you may have MS) than other labs. The standard for how many o-bands you needed was raised by the Mayo. I think it used to be one. The Mayo lab has no real complaints. It is harder to get a MS diagnosis at the Mayo so that is where "hold the Mayo" comes from. It is all individual. Some people have no trouble getting diagnosed at the Mayo.
