RH D Antigen +: All the cells in your body have signposts on them that identify them as belonging to you. The RH D factor is one of these signposts. If you are RH D positive, you have nothing to worry about. If the RH D is negative, you would need to have a medication called Rhogam to protect future pregnancies. But since you are RH D positive, you do not need this medication. Best wishes!
