Rhogam Shot given late & Abortion

I had an abortion I opted not to get the rhogam shot b/c I was going to get my tubes tied...but decided to wait...and didnt get the Rhogam Shot until 1 week after the abortion is this ok? I know you are suppose to get it within 24 hours....I heard something that if you get it late it can cause mental retardation in a future pregnancy (child)..is this true????

I never heard of future retardation.  I also need to have the rhogam.  Not getting it in time ur body can begin to attack itself.  If you dont get  it while pregnant your body will attack the fetus
