Rhogam question

I'm about 7 weeks pregnant and I know that I'm Rh negative and will need the Rhogam shot later on in the pregnancy and again after birth. I cut my finger today and it bled quite a bit. Do I need to get a Rhogam shot now?

Edited to add:  This is my 3rd pregnancy.  During my 2nd pregnancy, the Dr told me that if I had an injury and bled a lot that I would need a Rhogam shot right away.  Have the gudelines changed or was my dr an idiot?

  • Nope you'll be just fine. That's just for the baby in-case baby is not same Rh factor as you!

  • Call the dr and ask, that way you can be sure either way.

  • Saw the dr today. He said only if it was a bad enough injury to require a visit to the hospital or dr and got stitches. It wasn't quite that bad, so I don't need one.

  • You totally need to get three or four shots.
