I have heard that African and Europeans cannot always reproduce succefully. The children only live to 12 sometimes. And no "Kissing Cousins". We have in this forum some of their pictures, aaghhh.

I think you're seeking a medical answer here aren't you , rather than a social one ?...because blood group does not determine if you can marry someone or not, in any case, there surely is a ' treatment ' the wifey can have to make child bearing not a problem. Is this the gist of your question ?....but what is your point if not ? and why the urgency ?.......good luck anyway.

unless things are very different in otehr parts of the world, and I'm just ignorant, the answer is definately "no".  Unless, that is, you are fancying to marry your pet goat who happens to be AB+ as well.

There is no risk to sharing the same blood type. The pregnancy risk normally associated with blood type has to do the Rh factor. A woman who is Rh negative may develop antibodies to her baby's blood if the father (and thus the baby) is Rh positive. This is easily prevented with an injection of a substance that blocks the formation of these antibodies in the mother.

I can vouch for that as that is precisely the situation with wifey and me...thank you Dr Phil for your words of wisdom.

No problem with blood types at all.  As for the Rh negative/positive problem, it's only a problem, as I recall, if the mother is Rh positive and the baby is a negative, and it's only a problem after the first pregnancy.  They give Rhogam so the mother will not develop the Rh antibodies after pregnancy, and that solves the issue.

Bet you're right.  It's been a long time since I did any ob-gyn.  Don't like to listen to screaming women.

In the past, the rhesus factor (Rh + or -) made it dangerous for a woman to get pregnant by a husband whose blood Rh was opposite hers. Nowadays, although there are dangers to mixing the rhesus factor, a competent doctor can detect the condition then counsel the parents and administer medication to prevent the mother's body from rejecting a fetus having the wrong blood.

Me and my Mum are A- my Dads A+, my Mum had some trouble before I came along, and im an only child, so that might explain things. I wonder how many families with one or no child (not by choice) have parents that have opposite Rh factors?? Has there been any study into this? In the UK + is 84% of the population, so it might be a big problem thats not noticed very often???

nothing i love more than hearing my woma scream!  ;)

The problem of in compatible blood types between mother and fetus has nothing to do with fertility.... only after conception.... i almost want to say not until birthing.  This is only an issue during the second (or subsiquent pregnancys) after the mother has had a chance to develop antibodies against the forgien blood type.  But none of this is often a problem today as there are drugs to treat for it and it is routinely screened for.
