Hallo Negative24
You have to have your blood tested for antiRh antibodies before conceiving your next baby. If negative, you can get anti-D injection (Rhesugam)from your Gynecologist to prevent future problems in a pregnancy. If you have anti D antibodies, your gyne may need to take precautions and monitor your pregnancy closely for development of hemolytic disease of the newborn.
