In pregnant women, the fetus in the womb is protected by amniotic fluid, placenta and amniotic membranes so that the fetus inside is safe, warm, and the fetal growth process goes well with systems that are directly related to the mother.
However, under certain conditions, sometimes it is found discharge of amniotic fluid due to tears in the membranes that protect it. Naturally, rupture of membranes indicates that the pregnancy entered labor, and this occurs after 40 weeks' gestation or after other signs of labor appear.
So if the membranes rupture prematurely, this is also called premature rupture of the membranes (to), which can occur before 37 weeks of pregnancy or after 37 weeks before delivery. often occurs due to certain conditions, such as:
1. trauma, fall or accident
2. pressure on the lower segment, such as when riding a motorcycle or breech baby
3. after sex
4. infection of the birth canal
If with the end of the 3rd trimester of pregnancy, pregnant women experience it, it is necessary to consult with a gynecologist to determine the condition of the fetus after it occurs to related fetal welfare or fetal health and the possibility of labor that can be done to prevent the risk of infection.
In connection with your question, the presence of bloating or discharge coming out after having sex with her husband, is likely to indicate an incident to, because it has not been accompanied by signs of HIs / strong uterine contractions, as well as other signs of childbirth, such as cervical opening. because of the high pressure of the lower uterus and sexual activity undertaken. This is reinforced by further examination in the form of checking the pH of the liquid that comes out tends to be alkaline.
However, the most important thing right now is how to evaluate your fetus afterwards. If this is not addressed and evaluated by a gynecologist, there can be a risk of causing amniotic fluid to come out, and cause infection, in addition, this can be at risk of causing hypoxia in the fetus or lack of oxygen in the fetus. Therefore, as soon as possible you consult the nearest maternity hospital / obstetrician for examination and treatment that is right for you and your fetus.
