Negative Rh — factor, abortion — risk of infertility

Medical professionals still consider abortion a difficult gynecological operation because it can lead to numerous complications. Especially severe consequences can occur in women with a negative Rh factor. Rh factor — a protein formed on the surface of red blood cells. Most people have it and are Rh positive. But about 15 percent of people lack protein and are Rh negative. It is very difficult for women with such a blood composition to bear a child during the entire period of pregnancy. Medicine has stepped far forward and today many medical methods are used to ensure that women with a negative Rh factor give birth to healthy children. However, women go for an abortion even with a negative Rh factor, although they are aware of the risk and sometimes irreversible complications. Why is the risk increasing?? If both a woman and a man have a negative Rh factor, then the baby will have the same Rh factor, in this case there will be no Rh conflict and only the usual risks are assumed for abortion. In the case of a negative Rh factor in a woman and a positive Rh factor in a man, the possibility of the fetus inheriting the Rh factor of the father is not excluded. Then there is the possibility of a Rhesus conflict. In this case, the blood of a child with a Rh-positive factor will be perceived by the mother’s body as a foreign body and her body, defending itself, produces antibodies to protect the immune system. These antibodies come into conflict with the fetal red blood cells, as a result, both the child and the mother suffer. As a result, a spontaneous miscarriage may occur or the child will be born with abnormalities due to oxygen starvation in the womb. Doctors have learned how to solve this problem. A woman with an Rh-negative blood factor gives birth to healthy children. The same risks apply to abortion. It doesn’t matter if it’s a chemical, vacuum or classic abortion. If the fetus inherited a positive Rh father, it will not pass without a trace. But the main danger is not even in this, but in the fact that at the first contact with foreign bodies of blood that has a positive Rh factor, a special kind of antibodies are produced in the woman’s body — they hardly penetrate the placenta due to their large size and inactivity. Therefore, the first pregnancy with Rhesus conflict has a high chance of a successful pregnancy. During the next pregnancy, the already formed antibodies of the woman will in every possible way prevent the baby from being in the womb. As a result, the second or third pregnancy with Rhesus conflict increases the risk of not bearing the fetus and its birth with various pathologies. Every abortion, pregnancy or miscarriage increases this risk by 10 percent. And if abortions are done often, then there may come a time when pregnancy becomes simply dangerous for a woman and she will have no chance of a successful outcome.
