Can O+ male and female give birth?

Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Usually blood groups will not have much effect on fertility and pregnancy.
Except in case of Rh-ve blood group of the mother, which can lead to some complications.
Recently some articles have been told that women with O blood group can have lower number of ovarian follicles and quality of the ovum can also be poor.
But there are no proved studies on this matter.
And many people with the O+ve blood group are conceiving naturally like others with different blood groups.
So possibly you may not have any problem in conceiving.


Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,

Better to do all basic work-up.
You have to undergo semen analysis.
If that report is normal then your wife has to undergo ultrasound examination around the time of ovulation to know whether ovulation is occurring or not.
Ultrasound can also find out any possible abnormality in the reproductive tract.
If signs of ovulation present in ultrasound you have to plan intercourse around that time. Which will increase the possibility of conception.
If you have undergone these investigations in the past with all normal results and still not conceived, discuss regarding the option of artificial reproductive methods with your doctor.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
According to the same articles which I mentioned before it is said that A+ people are having increasing fertility because of good follicle count and quality.
But there are no proved evidences to any of these.
So better to get treated in general for infertility.
