I appreciate your query.
If your blood group is O -ve, and your husband is RH positive, you should have definitely taken Anti - D prophylaxis after both your abortions.
After each successive unprotected pregnancy event, you increase your chances of isoimmunization and hence adverse outcomes for the baby and yourself.
Right now, you are 9 weeks pregnant.
Please get your ICT ( indirect coombs test )
If negative, you should have Anti - D injection between 28 to 34 weeks of pregnancy and also within
72 hours of birth.
If you have any bleeding or invasive event in this pregnancy , you need Anti - D even prior to 28 weeks.
Please consult your gynecologist for further dosage and information
All the best.
