I'm Rh negative, and have been advised to have the Rhogam injection at 28 weeks. (I'm 20 weeks now). I've done some research on the subject, and I'm very familiar with the concerns about thimerosal in Rhogam because of the effects the thimerosal can have on my baby's development. (Of course there are risks to me as well, but focusing on the baby for purposes of this question) I asked my doctor which brand/formula of Rhogam she currently uses, and she gave me the package insert so I could read the info included myself. It's HyperRho S/D. The package insert indicates that there are no preservatives in it, and Medscape said the same thing. So I'm feeling reassured as far as my concerns regarding the thimerosal/mercury go. Is anyone aware of any other possible risks/dangers to the baby if I go ahead with the injection at 28 weeks? I haven't been able to find any others, yet.
