Rhogam shot? — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Rhogam shot?

Did anyone receive this with a first trimester loss? How do you know if you need it? I don't even know my blood type!

Re: Rhogam shot?

  • I've had to have this shot with with all 3 of my MC's because I'm o negative.

    Did you have to get it?
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site. 



  • @Nikolie93‌ No medical professional has mentioned it to me. I'm going to ask. I don't think I'm o negative. Is that the only time you need it?

  • I'd like to think your doctor would have tested you to see what your blood type is. Mine did. That wild determine whether you need the shot or not. Did you have any bloodwork done?

    BFP October 2014 - Due 7/2/2015 - MMC discovered 12/1/2014 (D&C)
  • They checked my blood type during my first MC and found I was o negative.

    I have heard some ladies say it's not necessary to get the shot if it's an early MC but I have no experience with that since u got it all 3 times.

    I would definitely ask your Dr to check your blood type, even if they won't think it's necessary to give the shot.

    As for all the blood types that may require the shot, I can't be sure. Sorry!

  • If you are RH negative (O-, A-, B-, or AB-) then you need it.

  • If you are Rh- and more than 6-8 wks when you miscarry then you will need the shot within 72 hrs of miscarrying. Your doctor should be testing you if you were far enough along.

  • I had a rhogam shot while i was still pregnant before i miscarried. If you're blood is negative then you have to get it or your cgances of miscarrying are increased by a lot is what my doctor told me. It tells the body not to reject the baby.
  • As the other ladies have stated, you need the rhogam shot if you are found to have Rh negative blood. (Which your Dr.s office should have done a blood draw to find out.) I had a mmc at 6 weeks, and after my d&c, I was given the shot. However, my doctor said I only needed the shot the one time and wouldn't need it going forward. When you have Rh negative blood, your body can attack a fetus that has Rh factor blood. The shot is supposed to help prevent your body from making antibodies against babies with Rh factor blood.
