By ICT, I assume you mean indirect Coomb's test. Your test result is fine.

You will need to take an injection called anti-Rh immunoglobulin at around 28 weeks of pregnancy to prevent the possibility of development of antibodies to your baby's red blood cells. You will also need to take his injection in all subsequent pregnancies.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Mona Mohsem and i am 33 years old. My blood group is O- with high antibodies titer. My husband is O+. I have 4 kids and one abortion. My last kids suffer from high jaundice and blood heamolysis due to the high antibody titer (RH disease).

Recently we did genotyping for my husband in Qatar and he was heterozygous. Therefore there is a chance to have an O- baby without any problems for the baby during pregnancy.

I want to do IVF to select an O- baby boy "to choose the sex and the blood group" before pregnancy by PGD or other ways, is that possible in your hospital? or can you help me to choose a hospital that can offer me this procedure.

Looking forward to hear from you.
