    Good morning, this blood group has no side effects on you but when you become pregnant you need to pay particular attention to your partners blood group if the rhesus factor is positive your fetus may have that rhesus factor from your husband. hence the need for you to take a rhesus antibody injection to prevent problems with the baby due to rhesus incompatibility. So the precaution should be in pregnancy.

    thanks for the reply. I'm 26years now. do I need to get married early because of this?

    No not all, it has no relation to time of marriage. this rhesus incompatibility is even of more importance in the second pregnancy when the likelihood of sensitization is likely. Just ensure you call the attention of your physician to this during your antenatal care as this will guide treatment during ANC.
