    Blood type and gender : are women more likely to be A and men O ?



    After finding out that women with blood type O were likely of suffering from lower ovarian count, and that type O tended to be protective against cardiovascular problems, I came to wonder whether there was some of natural selection (e.g. among spermatozoa at conception) favouring O blood type for male embryos and A, AB or B blood type for female ones ?

    I have noticed that among my relatives and friends women were far more likely to be A, while men were very often O. I have never heard of a difference of blood type distribution according to gender.

    For what it's worth I would like to start a little poll here and see whether my suspicions are confirmed. Thanks for voting.

    I don't know my mother's or father's blood type, (I don't know where the paperwork is).

    However, I was surprised to find out that I am B+, particularly in light of the fact that I read somewhere that it is speculated that B+ people were not as resistant to plague as people of other blood types; some of the towns where my ancestors lived had a 90% mortality from the Black Plague during the Middle Ages.

    This is the first I've heard of a connection to gender.

    I really imagined.

    I guess you're referring to the group B, because otherwise you could not bear so much beauty and joy.

    Oh wait... she could have also been AB+
    Didn't think about that first

    With your father's A- and you AB+ there wouldn't be more possibilities than that.

    You inherit your blood type like everything else, there is no hocus pocus about it. I am A-, my father is A+ and my mother A-. I suppose there must have been a Rhesus minus connection in my father as well, since I inherited the recessive gene. The blood type A is the most common in Norway.
