Has The Previous Curettage Affected The Health And Development Of The Fetus That Is Still Alive?
Good morning. I am Walidah, 24 years old and married in September 2019.
Thank you for the question.
Twin pregnancy (gemelli) occurs when an egg is fertilized by a sperm cell but then divides into 2 embryos (identical twins). It could also be, a twin pregnancy occurs when there are 2 eggs that are fertilized by 2 sperm cells at the same time so that it develops into 2 different fetuses (non-identical twins). In the case of identical twins, chances are, the fetus will grow together, because it is derived from the same egg and sperm. But it is different from non-identical twins. Non-identical twin fetuses can grow faster than one other fetus. This condition may cause your twin pregnancies to be known later.
With a comprehensive examination, twin pregnancies should be detected early. However, given the very small size of the fetus, coupled with the heavy bleeding and clotting that you experience, it is difficult to distinguish this condition from a normal miscarriage. Even though it is done by a senior obstetrician. Of course, the doctor's curette actions advise you to save you from the potential dangers of miscarriage, such as massive bleeding that can be deadly. With dikuret, the remaining pregnancy tissue can be cleaned more optimally, so that the bleeding that occurs will be shorter and can be controlled. As for the drugs given after the curette may vary depending on your condition. Usually, drugs given by doctors are useful for cleaning the remaining tissue from the uterus, treating bleeding, relieving pain, as well as minimizing the risk of infection. If you look at your condition which turns out to be twin pregnant, so there is still a fetus in your womb, indeed giving some of these drugs can have a negative impact on your pregnancy, especially if given in the first trimester of pregnancy which is the fastest time for organigenesis to take place. As for the effects that may arise from the consumption of drugs after curettage, among others, can cause fetal defects (such as cleft palate, cerebral palsy, malformation of the face, abnormalities of motion equipment, and so on). But of course, giving these medicines before the doctor did for your own health.
With regard to your condition, without examining you directly, it is not right if we judge what the exact chronology and consequences that you or your fetus may have faced from the actions the doctor took. Therefore, we suggest that you consult with the obstetrician who cared for you to conduct a more in-depth evaluation regarding the condition of the fetus in your womb at this time. That way, further efforts can be made so that the potential for fetal developmental disorders can be minimized.
Hope this helps ...
