Should Rh– women receive Rh immunoglobin for a miscarriage before 12 weeks’ gestational age? Evidence-Based Answer: The risk of alloimmunization with a miscarriage before 24 weeks appears to be low (SOR: B, small RCT). Nevertheless, most expert guidelines recommend giving Rh immunoglobulin (RhIG) to Rhesus negative (Rh–) women for a first trimester miscarriage (SOR: C, expert opinion).
