Blood type and pregnancy: who should not postpone the birth of a child until later

What do scientists say about blood type and the ability to conceive?

Blood is such a unique environment of the body that scientists can even determine which blood type is more difficult for a woman to get pregnant with. And they can also calculate the percentage of probability that the unborn child of a particular blood type.

So, scientists have found that in women with the 1st group, the reserve of eggs is depleted faster. This suggests that the risk of infertility is increased. It becomes more difficult for a woman to get pregnant, especially after the age of 30. Carriers of the 1st blood group need to measure seven times before postponing childbirth to a later date. In Russia, 1 blood type is found in 4 out of 10 women.

When planning a conception, parents must take into account blood type compatibility in order to avoid complications. When a fetus is born, maternal and paternal blood mixes to form the baby’s blood. With the highest percentage of probability, it will be the same as that of the parents. When mom and dad have the same blood type, then in most cases (95-98%) the child will have the same blood type.

When parents have different blood types, then the baby has a 25% chance of inheriting one of the four blood types. The baby may have 1,2.3 or 4.

It is believed that the child whose father has a higher blood type than the mother will be healthier. For example, if a woman has 1 blood type, and a man has any other, then it will still be higher. And the higher the blood type of the future dad, the better it is for the baby.

Future moms and dads should remember:

– in 99% of cases, the baby inherits the maternal blood type and Rh factor.

– if he inherits a non-maternal blood type and Rh factor, this can turn into problems. If the child inherits the Rh factor of the father, then the risk of Rh conflict will be high. This is a condition in which the immunity of an Rh-negative pregnant mother attacks her unborn child, perceiving it as a foreign body. In mild cases, this ends with jaundice in the baby, in severe cases, with his death or stillbirth.

– If the blood type and Rh factor of future parents do not match, then before conception it is highly desirable, and sometimes even special therapy is required to prevent rejection of the fetus by the mother’s body.
