Dear Sir, My sister had a scratch from a stray dog on 25.03.2017 where a red spot is visible on the thigh. She has now been administered anti rabies vaccine on 26.03.2014 i.e. After completion of 24 hours. Still how many are required? Also is it compulsory to have immunoglobulin along with a rabies vaccine?

A person who is exposed and has never been vaccinated against rabies should get 4 doses of rabies vaccine - one dose right away, and additional doses on the 3rd, 7th, and 14th days. They should also get another shot called Rabies Immune Globulin at the same time as the first dose

One injection after delivery is sufficient most of the times. Consult a gynaecologist during this pregnancy and inform your condition.

Hello. Dr. Does RH negative blood group cause miscarriage or any other type of problem in pregnant lady?

If anti d injection was not given within 48 hours of previous delivery or miscarriage, future pregnancies do carry a risk of miscarriage. If woman gets pregnant, she should be monitored through indirect coombs test. If husband is rh negative there's no risk of a miscarriage.

If it was complete miscarriage, with no D and C done, and less than 12 weeks pregnancy, then do not worry. You do not need Anti D If more then 12 weeks, then its ok if its more then 72 hours, you can take Anti D.

Hello lybrate-user, it's very difficult to advise you just like that. If your gynaecologist has advised you for induction of labour she must have taken many factors into consideration. Every patient is different and we have to decide the management individually. Please have trust in your gynaecologist and relax. Your treating gynaecologist is the best judge for you. All the best.

Hello sir, My wife is 26 years old .she wants to do abortion. She has mtp kit .and she is rh negative. I want to know how can she use these tablets .with water or through vagina .please suggest me.

This should be taken under guidance of doctor and since she is the negative she will require Anti D injection. If there aren't pressing issues and this is first pregnancy it's better to avoid termination as she is the negative.

Anti d injection a single dose 1500 iu can be administered between 28 and 30 weeks. It is given to prevent complication in the future pregnancy if in this pregnancy child is +ve blood group. Disadvantage of this approach is that approximately 40% of d negative women who are carrying an d negative child will be given routine prophylactic anti-d ig unnecessarily" cell free fetal dna" (cffdna) test can be done on mothers blood to determine baby's blood group to avoid this injection, but this test is very costly.

I completed the ARV ID route 0-3-7-28 days and completed the schedule on 25 sept 2018 but immunoglobulin (HRIG) was not given. WILL THAT EFFECT THE PEP COURSE and once again PEP DOSE WAS COMPLETED ON 25/09/2018? HOW LONG WILL IT PROVIDE IMMUNITY BTW? THANKS.

PEP is a course of anti-HIV medication. PEP is unlikely to work if it's started after 3 days (72 hours) and it won't usually be prescribed after this time. It is best to start taking PEP within 1 day (24 hours) of being exposed to HIV. PEP makes infection with HIV less likely.
