    Default Rh Negative- do i need anti d after a miscarriage?

    Hi ladies!
    Im hoping you can help with some info on the subject of having type o rhesus negative blood and how it has affected subsequent pregnancies etc.
    I have had to 2 previous successful pregnancies and births and have been given anti D during those pregnancies but
    Ive just had a mc 2 weeks ago @ 6 weeks, should i have an anti D shot after this? as ive read some scary things on the net about this all and would like to speak to other ladies who know a bit about this.

    I'm sorry for your loss. Yes you need an anti D injection. Same thing happened to me. I am A Neg and I was sent to get anti D injection when having a M/C at 6 weeks. Take care of yourself.

    Yes as PP suggested you should have been offered this two weeks ago.
    I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and have 4 threatened miscarriages during this pregnancy. Each time I have had an episode of bleeding I have had to have an anti D injection straight away. This will be followed up with another at 28 weeks and again at birth.
    Id be visiting your doctor first thing in the morning.

    Thank you so much for the info as we are ttc after this mc and would hate to have this happen again due to not having anti D.

    Unfortunately we are unsure on his blood type (my prev pregnancies were to my ex husband) thankyou so much for this info as its a subject i have known little about and doctors hadnt given me very much information about it, just basically to have the injection during pregnancy and that was it.

    Your doctor is an idiot. I'd consider making a complaint to the board.

    I always had the anti-d after bleeding but I also heard that there's actually very little chance of your blood co-mingling with the baby at 6 weeks. Was there ever a heartbeat? If not, there would be no blood flow.

    I think you can be quietly confident but definitely test for the antibodies.

    And I'm sorry for your loss

    Thanks - yes I did forget to mention this but did know. I knew going into this pregnancy the finer details as I was aware that I am Rh- and DH is Rh+. We have the added complication that we are using DE and she is Rh+ too. Fortunately as I have been working closely with a well regarded FS for some years everything that we do /or happens is very closely monitored.
