Can You Give Birth Normally After Placing Platinum On Your Hips?
Hello … I want to ask, but first I want to tell you about my situation, in my 20s, I had an accident that required platinum to be placed on the thighs and a hip section. Now I am pregnant at the age of 30. Now what I want to ask: 1. Can I have a normal baby? 2. What is meant by SC? Because my sister’s friend said that if the hips were installed, the pen would have to do a SC so that it would not harm the baby. Is it necessary to do SC first before pregnancy is greater? Thus the question from me, thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
I will try to answer your questions one by one
Can you give birth to a baby normally?
Basically a history of fractures in the thighs or hips and a pen in the pelvic bone is not an absolute indication of a cesarean delivery (SC). Indeed, research shows that the rate of cesarean delivery is higher in women who have a history of hip fractures. However, normal delivery from the vagina is not impossible in women with a history of hip fracture (with or without pen placement). You should discuss again with your obstetrician about how you will deliver later, and also ask about the possibility of vaginal delivery with your condition. The location of the hip fracture will also affect your obstetrician's decision, so it will be very helpful if you can bring your last hip X-ray.
What is meant by SC?
SC is an abbreviation of Sectio Caesarea or also known as C-section or cesarean section. Cesarean section is a way of removing the baby through an incision in the abdomen and uterus which is performed on certain indications (for example due to fetal disturbances so that labor must be done quickly, the proportion of the baby's head is too large compared to the pelvis, or other conditions that do not allow normal delivery from vagina). Again, a history of hip fracture and also the placement of a pen in the pelvic area are not an absolute indication of a cesarean section. You should ask your obstetrician directly to find out possible ways that labor can be done for your condition.
Is it necessary to do SC before the greater the gestational age?
As mentioned above, cesarean delivery is not necessarily necessary in your condition. Even if necessary, the doctor will try to hold a cesarean operation until the baby is as mature as possible (the closer to 40 weeks the better). There are many factors that influence the need for an SC to be delivered to a woman, and whether or not to have an SC done earlier than 40 weeks. Therefore, make sure you always do routine antenatal checks. If you have been doing routine control to the midwife, make sure you do a check-up with your obstetrician as well at least once during your pregnancy has entered the third trimester.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
