Blood Group Compatibility For Marriage
My marriage is consangunous. My blood group is apositive. My husband's is anegative. Is there any problem for the baby?
Are all different blood groups compatible for marriage? Is there any chart for compatible combinations we should follow? If not followed what happens?
All are compatible: All of the abo/rh blood groups are compatible for marriage. There is extra prenatal care (and maybe a couple of shots) to be taken if an rh negative woman gets pregnant with an rh positive man, but those precautions are for the baby's benefit (not directly affecting the marriage). ...Read more
No, None whatsoever:
Why should this be any problem?
It is only if she is rh negative that we get concerned about. ...Read more
My blood group is a negative. However my blood (as well as being d negative) is also c negative and e negative. What does this mean?
Blood group systems: The ABO blood group system is the most important blood group system. The second most important system is rh blood group systems- where thare are 50 known antigens- including c c d d e e. The commonly used terms rh factor, rh positive and rh negative refer to the d antigen only.

Rh factor: The rhesus factor is an protein add on to the blood cell that divides all groups into those that have it or those that don't.People that are rh - can develop a destructive antibody that will attack any rh + cells & cause a transfusion reaction. Rh + cells don't react to rh-. The rh reaction is much more trouble than most problems with a to o or b to o reactions. ...Read more
Universal donor: The advantage is that you are a universal donor- which means you can donate your blood and the blood can be used and be given to people with different type of blood group. Which means you can do a lot of good karma. The disadvantage is that if you ever need packed red blood cell transfusion-you should only get a type o blood, which unfortunately -is not very common. ...Read more
Blood transfusion.: Historically o negative was spoken of as being the universal donor. However, there are minor antigens such as the mn group that influence compatibility. By current standards a type and cross (to determine compatibility) is always done before any transfusion, and the concept of the universal donor is now somewhat out of date. ...Read more
Genetics: Your blood work, just like the color of your eyes, your hair, the shape of your face etc- is inherited from your parents. It is created from combination of your parents's genes. ...Read more

Just the blood type: The major blood types are a+ (a positive), b+, ab+, o+; and a- (a negative), b-, ab-, and o-. That means o+ and o- are just two of the basic blood types. There is no advantage to having one of these blood types, compared to another. ...Read more
Probably none: Having the same blood group is not a problem. The rh factor is important. If one parent, is negative and the other is positive, there is a chance for problems. Ob/gyn's routinely check for problem and will give the mom a shot called Rhogam prior to deliver. ...Read more
