Rhogam Shot

Has anyone had one?? I have my appointment to have it done tomorrow and for some reason, I'm anxious about it.
Anyone know how they administer it (i.e., through your arm)??
TIA!!!

Re: Rhogam Shot

Is that the shot for the blood types (negative/positive)? If it is, my SIL had to get in and she got it in her butt, she said it wasn't that painful.

Re: Rhogam Shot

Its a shot you get if your blood type is NEGATIVE. It is administered in your arm (atleast mine was 2x)

I have to go today for mine also. I had one when I miscarried and it was in my butt. I'll let you know where they do it this time tonight...

OK - just got back and they asked me whether I wanted it in the butt or arm - so you should be able to make your own decision!Chat Icon

I thought you only get it if mom and dad had different blood types? I am negative so dh had to get tested and is positive so I need the shot.

Mine was given to me sort of in my butt. I say sorta because she told me that the best place to put it is in the muscle not the fat so she put it a lil higher than my butt cheek.

As far as I know it's when the woman is negative and the dad is positive.

Thanks ladies! Chat Icon

I'm back from my appointment. It was not a big deal at all. They administered the shot in my upper arm (phew!).
I had to have it done b/c I am RH- and DH is RH+.
