Bleeding At 18 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
good afternoon, i have a question? on tuesday afternoon when i woke up like menstruation came out blood spots, even though i was pregnant 18 weeks i went to the midwife and the midwife advised me to have an ultrasound, the next day at 11 o’clock in the afternoon I urinated and when i flushed there was blood flowing down, In the evening, I had an ultrasound at RSIA Depok, and the doctor advised me to do a blood test for a dileb. The doctor said I had bacteria that I had to look at on the dileb like a torch, but as for the cost, I honestly couldn’t afford to pay for it, I guess “if I didn’t check the dileb, how is it dangerous or not for my fetus, please let me knowrnAlodokter.com
Thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bleeding that occurs in the second trimester of pregnancy can generally be caused by:
miscarriage, placenta previa, or the position of the placenta that partially or completely covers the birth canal, placental abruption, or the placenta is detached from the uterine wall. TORCH infection (Toxoplasma, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes) is one of the infections that can cause miscarriage. To determine the presence of this infection required blood tests. Without a blood test the doctor can't be sure. If there is evidence of an infection, the doctor can immediately provide treatment for you.
I understand the economic difficulties you are experiencing. However, if you do not do this examination, then the risk of fetal death can occur, if indeed you have this infection. You can try to consult with other obstetrics and gynecology specialists to check the health of your fetus and ask for a second opinion about the importance of this TORCH examination. If indeed the doctor also recommends the same examination, then you should undergo this examination. Also talk to your doctor about other things you can do.
In the meantime, avoid excessive physical activity and get plenty of rest.
