Abortion anti d injection

Patient: I had an abortion yesterday. I was 9 weeks pregnant. Say I was rhesus negative and didn’t receive an anti d injection at the time, could I get one done soon and would it still be effective ie how late is too late for it?

 

 

Symptoms: Medical abortion at 9 weeks

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Usually anti D injection is advised take within 72 hours of t he abortion.So, now you can go for the injection. Take care.
