Possible Fetal Blood Groups If Parents Have AB And A Blood Groups?
Hello, I want to ask .. if a wife is a group from AB + and suaminy A then the possibility of the child in the birth of the child will be A + atw A. Thank you.
Hello Mylie, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Blood type shows an antigen in red blood cells passed down by our parents (father and mother). The blood classification system that is currently used throughout the world is the ABO system classification.
Someone with blood type A means to have antigen A in their blood (it can be AA or AO, both of them are read as blood type A). Similarly, in people with blood type B, it means they have B antigens (BB or BO). For people with blood type AB, it means that the person has both antigens, namely A and B (AB). For people who don't have any antigen, their blood type becomes O.
For the + (positive) or - (negative) sign in the blood type, it shows someone's rhesus, D antigen or protein that is on the surface of the red blood cell. For those who have the D antigen, it means that the rhesus is positive (genes can be + / + or +/-, both read as positive), and those who do not have the antigen are negative (- / -).
All these antigens will be derived, crossed with your partner's antigens. For example in the case that you submit, if a woman's blood type is AB +, it means she has antigens A and B, and her rhesus is positive. While men have blood type A (let's say the rhesus is negative), meaning he has antigen A, it could be AA or AO.
If they have children, then the possibility of blood type can be A, B (B antigen from the mother, and O from the father), and AB. For rhesus the possibility can be positive or negative, depending on whether the mother's rhesus antigen is (+ / +) or (+/-), if (+/ +) then surely the child will have rhesus +, but if (+/-), it could be who passed down his mother who (-) then met rhesus a negative father as well and produced children with negative rhesus.
So the answer to your question is the two possibilities that can happen, both A + and A-, even children may have blood types B +, B-, AB +, or AB-.

That's all, hopefully it helps.
