I get my Rho-Gam shot on thursday and I was wondering how sore you are afterwards. I heard from someone that its kinda a big needle. I dont know. Just trying to prepare myself. I dont mind needle, I just use my arms a lot at work and like I said, just trying to prepare myself. Thanks.Answer Question
Personally if I was rh -, I would not want this injection. It is a purified blood product which is not typically told to women when receiving this. Any type of blood product, I am leery of due to the possibility for contamination.

Girlnefly, is this not one of the statments on your CafeMom Home page:
"I am an experienced nurse that has never worked OB, I am prectically clueless when it comes to OB specific medical knowledge. I want to learn from all the mothers out there what to expect."?
If so, then have your really ADMINISTERED this medication? In what type of setting would you give Rho-gam injections if you have no OB experience?
All blood products no matter how they are processed contain a risk of contamination to the patient. Even Rho-gam indications and contraindications information will state this if you read the brochure. Have you?
