My blood type is rh- & my spouse is +. Are Rh factor problems common if my first child is rh+? I rec'd rhogam shots timely. Ttc 2nd child currently

This incompatibility can be prevented by Rhogam injection at 28 weeks of gestation and again soon after the baby's birth . Having received Rhogam during your first pregnancy and after delivery will help prevent problems with your second baby. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If they adopt one: The genetics of blood groups is rather straight forward. The only way to pick up a a gene is to have one in the donor.I find an occasional adult who actually doesn't know their blood type or was told the wrong type in the past.

All are rechecked at time of need. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
