Hello doctor,

I am 3 months pregnant. My blood group is O negative. Will I face any complication during pregnancy due to my negative blood group? I consulted with my doctor, and she told me to take Fertigyn 5000 injection once a week for four weeks. Is it safe? Will it make me get a normal delivery or C-section?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In case your partner is positive, then there are chances of your baby being positive. The first child usually escapes, and in the case of the second child, if positive, the blood might be attacked by the antibodies, and it might cause anemia in the baby.
  • To prevent that there are anti-D injections given during first pregnancy itself. Kindly discuss with your obstetrician about anti-D injections.
  • Injection Fertigyn (human chorionic gonadotropin hCG injection) does not prevent that attack. It is simply to hold your baby inside the uterus. Your obstetrician might have prescribed it for some other reason.
