Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The condition for the placenta that attaches to the lower part of the uterus near the cervix so that it covers part or all of the birth canal inside the uterus is called placenta previa. Symptoms include painless bleeding at 22 weeks of gestation, blood that comes out is usually fresh red, at first a little and can stop on its own but later can be repeated with more volume and for no apparent reason. Usually the fetus in pregnancy with placenta previa has a good condition if there is not so much bleeding.
Risk factors for placenta previa include:
Pregnancy in the elderly (over 35 years)
History of childbirth> = 2 times
Previous history of uterine surgery (example: Caesarean section, myomectomy)
Miscarriage history> = 2 times
Complications at risk occur in pregnancies with placenta previa, namely heavy bleeding to anemia, shock, to maternal death. You are advised to consult regularly with your obstetrician and gynecologist so that close observation of your condition and the fetus can be carried out. Through physical examination and support (example: obstetric ultrasound) by the doctor, the doctor can provide recommendations for planning treatment according to your condition and the fetus.
As a suggestion at home, you should get enough rest and avoid strenuous activities. Immediately go to the doctor if there is a lot of bleeding, especially if accompanied by an increase in the pulse rate that feels weak strength, cold palpable skin, and decreased consciousness.
