Avatar f tn I stared reading that Rh incompatibility could be an issue for me giving birth or even having a second child in the future. Has anyone dealt with this, and if so, is it something to worry about? Thanks.
1344601 tn?1276773680 Is there a possibility for a baby with rh incompatibility or Rh-induced hemolytic disease of the newborn to survive without being treated and live without having the effects that the disease brings? Thank you.
849762 tn?1288188348 As a part of the blood testing in standard prenatal care, most doctors check the woman’s blood type in order to identify women for whom Rh incompatibility is a concern. Originally, recommendations were to give the injections to women who had given birth. The recommendations then changed to include a RhoGAM shot around 28 weeks of pregnancy.
Avatar n tn , the term "Rh" refers to a particular protein, the Rh factor, that sits on the surface of red blood cells (the surfaces of all cells are dotted with some protein or another). About 85 percent of the population carries the Rh-factor protein on their cells. That makes them Rh-positive. Some folks, such as you, don’t have the protein and are Rh-negative.     Does it make any difference in your daily life? Not in the slightest.
Avatar f tn Finally they realized that my jaundice was the result of RH, as well as, ABO incompatibility. They started exchange transfusion but did not expect me to survive as i had gone 2 weeks without any real medical intervention, significant neurological problems were expected. I had every childhood disease possible. At fifteen I began suffering hay fever. I am now allergic to almost everything. I have bronchitis or pnuemonia at minimum 3 times a year.
Avatar n tn You'll need a shot after the birth if your newborn is found to be Rh-positive, because if you were exposed to Rh-positive blood during delivery, the shot will prevent your body from making antibodies that could attack an Rh-positive baby's blood during a future pregnancy.The shot (Rh immunoglobulin) is given to you during the pregnancy and then again after you deliver or m/c. This is only an issue for mom's that are RH- factor like I.
Avatar f tn If you are negative and your husband positive then there is the potential for Rh incompatibility. When a woman with the potential to develop Rh incompatibility is pregnant, doctors administer a two Rh immuneglobulin shots usually during her first pregnancy, the first one at 28 weeks.
Avatar f tn Hi! Yes, you can have repeat miscarriages if you have Rh blood group incompatibility (you are Rh negative and your partner is Rh positive). When there is Rh incompatibility, an atypical antibody called Anti-D antibody usually develops in response to it and is the cause of miscarriage. If both you and baby's father have same blood Rh type (either positive or negative), then chances of any antibody formation is less.
2174396 tn?1337608770 Hmm, I would have said no...what kind of incompatibility? Rh? I am Rh neg and my partner pos and we managed...I have had to have lots of blood tests to check that there are no antibodies against the + factor and have had to have antiD injections (they are known as rhogam shots in the US I think) to help prevent any antibodies being made, but other than that all has been fine, I am not even classed as medium or high risk.
Avatar n tn Hi im O+ which is a very common blood type I have no idea what my husband is and we have one child with another on the way im not too sure what the doctor meant. with O+ blood type you should have no worries. I know my cousin had a rare blood type in which when she gave birth they had to monitor her carefully but not sure which one but know O+ is good.
Avatar n tn There is only a problem when the mother is a "negative" and the baby is a "positive". Since you are a O"positive' you should have no problems whatsoever even if Dad is negative.
Avatar n tn Approximately half of the children born to an Rh-negative mother and Rh-positive father will be Rh positive. Rh incompatibility usually isn't a problem if it's the mother's first pregnancy because, unless there's some sort of abnormality, the fetus's blood does not normally enter the mother's circulatory system during the course of the pregnancy. However, during delivery, the mother's and baby's blood can intermingle.

If both you and baby's father have same blood Rh type (either positive or negative), then chances of any antibody formation is less. When mother is Rh negative and father is Rh positive—with the result that the baby can be Rh positive. The first baby usually is spared as the antibodies develop slowly.
533880 tn?1237616052 Erythroblastosis fetalis can be prevented for women at high risk ( Rh- women with Rh+ mates or mates whose blood type is unknown) by administering Rho-GAM containing anti-Rh+ antibodies into the mother around the 28th week of pregnancy and again within 72 hours after the delivery of an Rh+ baby. This must be done for the first and all subsequent pregnancies.

Avatar n tn One atypical antibody is anti-D antibody which usually develops in response to Rh incompatibility. When mother is Rh negative and father is Rh positive—with the result that the baby is Rh positive. The first baby usually is spared as the antibodies develop slowly. Thereafter the anti-D antibodies stay for life and cause miscarriage if the baby in womb is Rh positive. If you did not have any other child after your daughter then this could be persisting.
Avatar f tn Generally first trimester abortions or abortions occurring in first three months are due to fetal abnormality, genetic causes, Rh blood group incompatibility and low progesterone hormone. Infection of the uterus, endometriosis, fibroids, etc are some other causes for early abortion. You need to consult your gynecologist and run some tests to rule out these causes. Eliminating these causes will increase the chances of full term pregnancy. Take care!

Avatar f tn If some amount of your husband’s blood entered your blood stream by mistake, then it is unlikely to cause any reaction as such unless a large amount of blood entered the blood stream. When there is Rh incompatibility, an atypical antibody called Anti-D antibody usually develops in response to it and is the cause of miscarriage. If both you and baby's father have same blood Rh type (either positive or negative), then chances of any antibody formation is less.
Avatar f tn Your doctor can order a blood test to check your Rh sensitization status. In the event that you did develop anti-Rh antibodies, treatments for Rh incompatibility do exist and your doctor will know to observe your future pregnancies closely for signs of problems so as to intervene early if needed.

It caused him to have what's caused ABO Incompatibility Jaundice...and his levels were dangerously high very soon after birth, which is how they noticed it immediately and were able to identify it. Rh incompatibility can cause it as well.
