Re: Rhogam shot
Aug 20, 2008
Hey. I just wanted to say that I am going through my 2nd miscarriage and I am also RH-. My first miscarriage was in March 07 and I called the office to ask if I needed Rhogam and the nurse said no it was not necessary. My HCG levels dropped from 115 to 5 in 6 days and I was on the 38th day of my cycle. This time my HCG levels went from 86 then 40 then 77 then 78. The doctor on call told me I needed to get to the office right away for a Rhogam shot. I asked why since I was on the 38th day of my cycle again when I miscarried and he told me that if I didn't get the shot that it could cause antibodies that could affect my next pregnancy. When I saw my doctor today I asked her about it and she said they usually give it when you are around 7 weeks but I have heard from other doctors and on my Rhogam card I was given that you need it anytime the fetal blood could reach your blood. So if I experience this again, wish I pray none of us do.... I know next time to get the shot as soon as I see blood.
