Question:My blood group is O negative and my husband's is B +ve. Is it necessary to take anti D injection and when should i take it
Answer: If its your first ever pregnancy you will be given anti -d within 72 hr afterbirth of rh(+) baby. Immunisation of Rhesus negative women with anti-D after the birth of a Rhesus positive infant reduces the chances of developing Rhesus antibodies. Mothers and babies may have incompatible blood characteristics (such as Rhesus positive babies and Rhesus negative mothers). After the birth of a Rhesus positive infant, Rhesus negative women are given an injection of anti-D, which aims to prevent the women forming antibodies that would attack the red cells of a Rhesus positive baby in a future pregnancy. Such antibodies may make the baby anaemic and if severe enough can cause the baby to die.
