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

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.

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

What does it mean when you have a Android (methyltestosterone) Body type? How does body wrk? Does blood type depends on how lose wt? Am O positive, WT:131, 5'0

Android/gynoid: Android (methyltestosterone) 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 (methyltestosterone) 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.

If my husband blood type is b negative and my blood type is o positive what will the baby blood type be?

If my husband blood type is b negative and my blood type is o positive what will the baby blood type be?

It can be either: B or O, positive or negative, depending on which 2 genes you both carry. Your husband may have 2 B genes, or a B and an O gene. You may have two positive genes or a positive and a negative gene. B+O would equal B, O+O would equal O. Negative + negative = negative, while negative + positive = positive. It depends on what you both carry and what you pass on!

Depends: His blood type can be O positive or O negative. There are 2 genes for RH factor. You can either have 2 genes for positive or one. So if you passed the RH positive gene to your son, then he is positive, it not then he is negatve.
