How To Deal With Fainting Every Time You See Blood During Pregnancy?
Hello doctor .. r nGreetings. R nI’m a 25-year-old pregnant woman … currently pregnant is 27 weeks. This is my second pregnancy. After giving birth to my first child and r nBefore I get pregnant I often faint if my hands are injured and bleed. But I did not faint when I saw other people’s blood. Even then I often donated blood and I was healthy. Now when I was pregnant I fainted because my hands were injured and I bled, although not too much blood. R nWas there any effect on my fetus? R nAnd what causes me to faint if I bleed? R nThanks in advance. R nNITA NINSI
Hello Nita, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fainting is a temporary loss of consciousness. This condition often makes the sufferer fall. Patients' awareness will come back soon. Fainting is caused by a decrease in blood flow to the brain so the brain does not get enough oxygen. This decrease in blood flow is largely due to temporary impairment of autonomic nerve function which causes blood pressure and heart rate to fall. Impaired autonomic nerve function is caused by stress, fear, standing for too long, pain, sneezing. In addition, fainting can also be caused by dehydration, diabetes, heart dysfunction, and others.
Fainting every time you see blood can be caused by impaired autonomic nerve function. An increased stress level when looking at blood or fear in the blood can cause impaired autonomic nerve function and interference with blood pressure and blood flow to the brain so that a person can faint. Fainting can affect the condition of your baby, especially if you fall and experience a bump in the stomach area. In addition, if you experience fainting for a long time, this condition may also be able to disrupt blood flow to the fetus. Please check with your obstetrician to ensure the condition of your baby through ultrasound. What you can do to prevent fainting in the future is to avoid looking at your blood as much as possible. Sit immediately if you already experience symptoms of fainting such as dizzy eyes or dizziness. Don't forget to consume enough water to avoid dehydration.
