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.

Android/gynoid: Android body type refers to women whose waist/stomach is their largest body measurement; in contrast gynoid means a woman whose hips/buttocks are the largest measure. Android bodies "work" fine, but there some concern that the fat location confers higher risks of metabolic and cardiovascular disease. Your blood type O+ has nothing at all to do with weight and will stay the same for life. ...Read more
