Rhogam Shot After Miscarriage
No rhogam shot after miscarriage in 2006. Just had a miscarriage at 13 weeks in nov. 2012. O neg. Bloodtype. Could this be related to not receiving shot?
Unlikely: This is an unlikely cause. However, there are blood tests the doc can run on you to see if you have been sensitized in any way to the rh factor due to that earlier event.It is a test that is often performed early in pregnancy, so it may have been part of your 2nd pregnancy workup but never discussed (if it was negative). ...Read more

Probably not: You should be evaluated for the need for Rhogam anytime you bleed during a pregnancy. At this time, you need to have a test for Rh antibodies that is standard with your first OB labs. If it is negative, you would only need Rhogam in early pregnancy if you bleed. You would then get a Rhogam shot at about 28 weeks routinely. See your OB. ...Read more
Will getting the rhogam shot help with the next pregnancy if I've previously had two miscarriages?
Miscarriage in Jan. now 6 months. got the rhogam shot when I miscarried. Dr. said I will get 1 at 28w , birth. Is that fine or shouldve had 1 earlier?
When is the latest I can get rhogam shot? I received one when I miscarried does that protect this baby too?
No it doesn't: Rhogam should be given to Rh negative ladies within 72 hours of any obstetric complication or fetomaternal hemorrhage risk, e.g. abortion, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, CVS, amniocentesis. Prophylactic at 28 weeks pregnancy, and within 72 hours of delivery. One shot doesn't provide long lasting immunity, this is kind of passive not active immunization, as there is no microbe to immunize against ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am rh- and after my miscarriage I did not recieve the rhogam shot, will I ever be able to carry a baby to term?
Get tested: Only a small percentage of rh negative women will develop antibodies to the rh protein after a miscarriage. Ask your doctor or midwife to test you with an antibody screen to see if you have any antibodies. Even if you did develop antibodies the chances would be very good that your next pregnancy would be relatively normal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had miscarriage a year ago and never received a rhogam shot. I have A- blood and hubby is A+. Will I be able to conceive again or do I need the shot?
OK to conceive again: If you were to have any problems after the miscarriage it would have already happened. When you get pregnant it will be necessary to receive the injection during the pregnancy and or after delivery to protect you from a blood reaction. You will be fine. The Rhogam is to protect you from the babies blood should you be exposed during delivery. Good luck with your new family. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Rhogam shot for miscarriage. Will this protect my future babies from harm until 28 weeks of pregnancy?
Had miscarriage at 6w3d. On 4/2/13. Have a neg. Blood. Er/urgent care docs did not give rhogam shot. Is it needed? Not sure of hubby's Rh factor.
You need it soon: 85% of people have rh+ blood, so playing the laws of averages, there is a very strong likelihood that the father was rh+. There is always the chance that the baby would have been rh- and Rhogam wouldn't be necessary, but why take the chance. It's to prevent a problem with future pregnancies. ...Read more
