atypical antibodies

i recently started donating plasma and they just told me i can no longer donate because i have atypical antibodies. they ask me if i recently had a baby or had a blood tranfusion. my daughter is 28 years old and ive never had a blood transfusion. i don;t understand since they told me this is usually the reason it shows up

Hi!
One atypical antibody is anti-D antibody which usually develops in response to Rh incompatibility. When mother is Rh negative and father is Rh positive—with the result that the baby is Rh positive. The first baby usually is spared as the antibodies develop slowly. Thereafter the anti-D antibodies stay for life and cause miscarriage if the baby in womb is Rh positive. If you did not have any other child after your daughter then this could be persisting. Other than this blood transfusions, dengue fever, vaccines received in past can also cause atypical antibodies. Take care!
