How does the RH factor affect a woman who is pregnant?
The Rh factor is a protein found in red blood cells. Most people are Rh positive, but if a woman is pregnant and Rh negative, this could definitely affect her fetus causing brain damage, or even death in the fetus or newborn.
A baby's Rh type is inherited from the parents. A pregnant woman is at risk of problems with Rh sensitization if she is Rh-negative and the father of her baby is Rh-positive. http://pregnancy.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Rh_Factor
The Rh factor can be a problem when a woman is pregnant and does NOT have the Rh factor (negative) and her unborn baby does have the Rh factor (positive). Her body will have antibodies against the Rh protein found on the baby's blood cells and will seek to destroy it. This occurs when the baby's father is Rh positive. This situation creates the situation where the baby could also be Rh positive. The symptoms… Read More
when a Rh+ mother carries a Rh- baby for second time, there is a high risk for the baby to suffer from a fatal disease called erythroblastosis fetalis , so it is necessary for one to know her Rh factor as well as her baby.
The Rh factor is associated with issues in pregnancies. Rh- (Rh- negative) people do not automatically carry anti- Rh antibodies but the immune system will manufacture them if exposed to Rh+ blood. If the Rh- negative mother has not been exposed to Rh+ blood the first pregnancy will progress without complications. However upon delivering her first child the severing of the placenta from the uterus will expose the Rh- negative mother to the Rh+ blood… Read More
It does not usually cause problems. It is an issue with blood transfusions and in tissue transplantation. The common place for it to be an issue is if an Rh negative mother has an Rh positive child. Some fetal blood mixes with the mother's and so she can make antibodies tot he Rh factor. If a later pregnancy is also Rh positive then the antibodies will kill that fetus. Doctors give Rhogam to Rh negative… Read More
Do you mean how can they affect babies or how can they affect the baby's blood type?
When a mother is Rh negative and her baby is Rh positive, she may develop antibodies to the baby's blood that will cause it to hemolyze
If an Rh negative woman is pregnant with an Rh positive fetus, her body will produce antibodies against the fetus's blood, causing a disease known as Rh disease
Blood type does not affect marriage or children, except for Rh factor. See the Related Link below for information on Rh factor.
This on its own is no issue, but when it comes to children, it can be a problem. If an Rh- woman has an Rh+ partner, and she becomes pregnant with an Rh+ baby, then her body will begin to create antibodies to this Rhesus factor. If she falls pregnant again, and this baby is Rh+, the antibodies from the last pregnancy can attack the baby, and cause damage. Knowing the bloodtype is important, just… Read More
The ABO and Rh blood types do not affect the ability to become pregnant. If the mother's Rh factor is negative, there might be an issue with a condition called Erythroblastosis fetalis, if the baby is Rh positive like the dad. If the mother is Rh negative, the doctor will take blood work to find her "titer" or if she has any anti-Rh+ antibodies circulating in her blood stream. He will also offer her a… Read More
no, it is affected by your rh factor. the rh factor is either + or - as in O+ or O- the only problem is when the woman has a negative rh factor and the man has a positive rh factor. when the + and - rh factors mix, the baby may become rh positive. when the happens, the blood from the baby sometimes enters the blood of the mother. this causes antibodies to be… Read More
A person who is Rh negative may have antibodies if he or she has been exposed in the past to Rh positive blood. Rhogam will prevent this sensitization in a pregnant woman with negative blood carrying an Rh positive baby.
If a person has the Rh factor, then they are positive. If they don't have the Rh factor, they are negative. The Rh factor is dominant, so a mother with it would have an Rh positive baby even if the father is negative for the Rh factor.
Rh factor is a blood protein. About 84% of the population is Rh positive, meaning only 16% of the general population is lacking Rh factor (RH negative).
Yes, people of any blood types can marry. If a woman with negative Rh factor gets pregnant, she gets an injection to lower the risk of complications in future pregnancies.
Will there be complications having babies in my married life if my n my husband's blood group is the same?
It really isn't an issue in the modern medical field. Rh factor is when a woman is at risk when she has a negative Rh factor and her partner has a positive Rh factor. This combination can produce a child who is Rh positive. While the mother's and baby's blood systems are separate there are times when the blood from the baby can enter into the mother's system. This can cause the mother to create… Read More
There are no dangers for the mother. Rh is a factor in blood, if you have the Rh factor you are Rh+. If not you are Rh-. If an Rh+ mother has an Rh- baby, there is nothing for her to react to, she has the factor. The baby doesn't. If an Rh- mother carries an Rh+ baby, the mother's body may create antibodies that will cause her body to treat the baby as a… Read More
The rh- female could become sensitized by an rh+ baby, so that a second rh+ child could have problems. However, there are injections that an rh- pregnant woman can receive to reduce or eliminate the problem.
You had a miscarriage because of the rh blood you had the rho shot it has been over a year now if you were to get pregnant again should you go immediately or would 2 or 3 months be ok?
If you have RH- factor, When you give birth or have a miscarriage you need to be administered the RH shot immediately. If you received the shot after the miscarriage or birth you should be fine and the likelihood of miscarriage due to the Rh factor is minor. If you miscarry again you should probably check with your doctor so they can see if there is another possible cause. If you did not receive the… Read More
Rhesus factor, the antigen of the Rh blood group system
The rh blood factor was first observed in Rhesus monkeys
The rh blood factor was first observed in Rhesus monkeys.
An Rh negative man can marry an Rh positive woman. There is no reason this cannot happen.
Having the Rh antigen protein in blood makes you RH factor positive.
A pregnant woman is at risk if she is Rh negative and her partner, and in turn, baby are Rh positive. While carrying the baby, the mother's blood, which is Rh negative, may mix with the baby's Rh positive blood. The mother's body will create antibodies to the Rh factor and treat the baby as if it foreign. The body would almost have an "allergic reaction" to the baby, so to speak. The antibodies would… Read More
First, let me point out that there are 32 blood-group systems identified in the human. Each of these can affect the outcome of a cross-match for a blood transfusion. However, it would be too confusing to identify yourself as a 32 part blood type, so we limit it to the two most important antigens/genes which are the ABO gene and Rh factor. The usually identified blood types are: phenotye: Type A pos = genotype: AA… Read More

You are probably somewhat familiar with blood types. Your mom may have told you that you were O+ or B-, etc. Blood is grouped into A, B, AB, or O and also by the Rh factor, either negative or positive. Most people are Rh positive. This means they have an antigen on their red blood cells for the Rh factor. People without the Rh factor antigen are Rh negative. So how is being Rh negative… Read More
The Rh- factor is the synonym of "Rhesus factor". Rh factor is a layer of protein that is found outside the Red blood cell (RBC). It was discovered for the first time in Rhesus monkey an inhabitant of Africa, hence the name.
Each person's blood is one of four major types: A, B, AB, or O. Blood types are determined by the types of antigens on the blood cells. Antigens are proteins on the surface of blood cells that can cause a response from the immune system. The Rh factor is a type of protein on the surface of red blood cells. People who have the Rh factor are Rh-positive. Those who do not have the Rh… Read More
Genotype determines the rh phenotype. The two alleles for rh factor are rh+ (rh positive) and rh- (rh negative). The rh+ allele is dominant.
If you mean same blood type, it doesn't matter. There can be a problem with the RH factor if a woman is negative and the husband is positive. However, this can be solved easily at the hospital when you give birth and happens is an RH negative woman gives birth to an RH positive baby. You will be given a shot to protect the next baby from antibodies.
if you are RH negative you need a shot to prevent your body from attacking your baby Re: If a woman is Rh negative, and she has a baby which is Rh positive, there will be no problem with the first pregnancy. But, due to some mixing of blood in the birthing process, the mother's blood will be exposed to the Rh antigens present on the baby's red blood cells. The mother's body will develop… Read More
I think Rh is not a blood group. Rh stands for a factor and derived its name from factor found in the blood of Rhesus monkey.
whether the RH antigen is present on RBCs on a person determines whether he/she is Rh+ or Rh- ,if it is presents Rh+ and on the opposite side Rh factor is important in blood transfusion cases .. if Rh- is given Rh+ blood antigen antibody reaction will take place leading to incompatibility.
The first response is great and all, but there are quite a few Rh negative women who are posting online about receiving false negatives on pregnancy tests until considerably far along in the pregnancy such as 10 and 12 weeks. So even though nothing medically has been documented, there might be something to it. If you're trying to get pregnant, to be on the safe side, avoid things recommended for pregnant women to avoid such… Read More
What complications can happen if a woman is heterozygous Rh positive and her child's father is homozygous Rh negative?
It shouldn't make a difference because the way complications happen is when an Rh negative woman is carrying an Rh positive child. In that case, the woman can form antibodies to her own child. But in the case of an Rh positive woman, she will not form antibodies.
No.The Rh factor will match at least one parent.If one parent has a positive and the other has a negative Rh factor then the baby could have either one,but if both parents have the same Rh factor then the baby will have same Rh factor as the parents.
Short answer: ABO is the name of the gene that produces A, B, AB, O blood types. First, let me point out that there are 32 blood-group systems identified in the human. Each of these can affect the outcome of a cross-match for a blood transfusion. However, it would be too confusing to identify yourself as a 32 part blood type, so we limit it to the two most important antigens/genes which are the ABO… Read More
An Rh positive woman will not form anti-Rh antibodies against an Rh negative or Rh positive fetus.
Rh blood factor is determined by the presence or absence of a particular erythrocyte protein.
Rh factor or rehsus factor is also involved in blood groups. either a person is Rh+ or Rh- if u are A+ then u have blood group A and you are Rh+ if you are A- then you have blood group A and you are Rh-
Rh factor is a protein that is found in the blood of about 85% of the population. Those who have the factor are Rh positive, while those who don't, are Rh negative. A person who is Rh negative can safely donate blood to persons with or without the protein. A person who is Rh positive can only donate to those who are Rh positive.
My blood type is A- while my husbands is 0 positive . Will this cause problems when trying to get pregnant and through the pregnancy?
The Rh factor difference can, potentially, cause problems (due to the fact that you are Rh- and your husband is Rh+). Consult your physician (Ob-Gyn) about this issue, as part of pregnancy and childbirth planning.
First: I am not at all associated to medical knowledge. I just did some research on your question and found these answers....concerned mother. A woman is at risk when she has a negative Rh factor and her partner has a positive Rh factor. This combination can produce a child who is Rh positive. While the mother's and baby's blood systems are separate there are times when the blood from the baby can enter into the… Read More
Is there any reaction between a woman with bood group b negative with the man of b positive after having sexual intercourse?
There would be no reaction between two people with different blood types who have sexual intercourse, however, if the Rh- woman were to get pregnant with an Rh+ child, any future Rh+ children she may have may be in danger of being aborted if she doesn't take preventative medicine.
type O and A is the type, you also have an Rh factor-either positive(meaning you have the factor) or negative(the Rh antigenis not present). All blood types can have a positive or negative rh factor so you need to know whether you and the father or RH positive or negative
the rh factor tells you if you have the d antigen - no + yes
Blood of animals contaion a factor known as Rh factor which was first discovered in Rehsus monkey, so name Rh and if it is present blood is called Rh+ of positive and if not then Rh-ve or negative simply.....
