When Should I Get Rhogam / Anti-D Injection
I'm A Negative and my husband is B Positive. I conceived right after we got married but miscarried in my third month. I was not given Anti D not given and TNC not done...
Now I'm in the 28th week of my second pregnancy.. I had the indirect coombs test at 26 week 5 days which came in negative. Do I have any risk in this pregnancy? When should I get Rhogam / Anti-D Injection?Answer
If your Indirect Coombs came back negative, you are fine and were not sensitized due to the miscarriage with your first pregnancy.
At 28 weeks now, you should ask your doctor for the Anti-D injection if you're choosing to have it during pregnancy. You should also get it again within 72 hours of delivering your baby. These will protect you from becoming sensitized if this baby is rh positive like your husband.
