Is this rhesus factor incompatibility to having A- & A+ blood groups?

I am 29 week pregnant and my question is: my blood group is A- and my husband’s

blood group is A+. Is this a case of rhesus factor incompatibility? Do I need to take an special injection or treatment to keep my pregnancy and baby safe?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Yes it is. Read more about the case at: http://medimetry.com/a/planning-pregnancy-your-and-your-partners-blood-group-compatible/
    RhIg is given to Rh-negative women in the following situations:
    At around the 28th week of pregnancy to prevent Rh sensitization for the rest of the pregnancy. Within 72 hours after the delivery of an Rh-positive infant. At 29 week also you can take this injection but after ICT ( indirect coomb test ).

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
