Brief Answer: No problem if this is first pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, if this is her first pregnancy then there is NO problem. If she is pregnant before and taken "anti D" injection then also there is absolutely no problem for the subsequent pregnancy. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
