I have a question about when I am choosing an egg donor
I am A+ positive and if choose donor B+..  The Rh factor is not a match
Will there problems that will occur with the egg taking
What is the percentage rejection?
What needs to happen in this case


Please help me

my understanding is that the bigger issue is if you are negative and the donor (or your spouse) is positive, then you need to take whinrho to prevent the buildup of antibodies.  the Rh factor is the + and negative.  my understanding is that the letter part of the blood type doesn't impact PG, but to be certain, you should double check with your doctor.


best of luck

Hi there
No worries about blood types- just find a donor you like :-).
I believe that differing blood types (A, B, AB, or O) do not matter, because your blood and baby blood do not mix. I think the Rh factor (+ or-) does matter. However I think it only comes into play when there is a chance of blood mixing (at birth), and I think they give you some med that makes it all okay.
Some couples seek donors with the same blood type so that the child will not know they are not geneticly linked later onthru a blood test.
I hope you find an awesome donor! Best of luck

I am a B- and my donor is an A+. My RE told me blood type doesn't matter, but when I miscarried, I needed the Rhogan shot due to mixing of the blood and production of antibodies.


Best of luck finding your donor!
