 ASK THE DOCTOR -  If the Blood Groups of Both Husband and Wife are the Same, can they Both have Children? 


It is a myth that people with the same blood group cannot conceive. Having the same blood group is perfectly fine. Fertility does not depend on blood groups or matching of blood groups. Blood group matching in a couple is given undue importance by some illinformed people. It carries importance only to the point, that if ‘Rh factors’ of both the partners are not matching, it can be harmful for the second child of the couple. However if such incompatibility is known beforehand, precaution may be taken to avoid any harm to the second child. An injection of “Anti D Immunoglobulin” to the mother immediately after the birth of her first child (or first abortion) is all that is required to prevent any harm to the subsequent pregnancy.
