My blood type is o (positive), does that mean I can only recieve o (positive or negative) in case of an emergency?

O Positive: O + blood type means you have the rh antibody. If you receive o negative blood, which has no rh antibody, you are ok. If you receive o+ blood, you're ok. But if you donate blood, there may be a problem to the recipient, if they have negative blood type. Any transfusion is preceded by a cross match wherein the two bloods are checked for compatibility to lessen the risk of transfusion react. ...Read more

Blood test says my blood type is O Positive but on the part where is says Rh factor it says negative. How does that make sense? Mean something else?

Blood test says my blood type is O Positive but on the part where is says Rh factor it says negative. How does that make sense? Mean something else?

It doesn't: It doesn't really, but here's what probably happened: If you're pregnant and getting prenatal labs, in RH negative patients who've had a previous pregnancy it's typical to test for RH factor antibody (an immune response against RH+ blood). This test is not necessary in RH+ women, but it was likely done by routine, and the result, as expected in negative since an RH+ person won't have RH Antibody ...Read more

My blood type is o positive, and my husband is a negative. Will we have a+/- children, and would that make for high risk pregnancies?

Possible issue: I would not consider an a/o incompatibility issue high risk, but worthy of monitoring. In your lifetime you have likely been sensitized to the proteins on the a blood cells & your antibodies will cross into baby & boost his/her chances of having jaundice. Most do well without rx & some require some special monitoring & help. I can remember only 1 case in 3 decades that gave me any real trouble. ...Read more
