How To Prevent Premature Rupture Of Membranes From Recurring In The Second Pregnancy?
My doctor has experienced premature rupture of membranes and the baby weighs 1.9kg. Now I am in the second pregnancy. But I am afraid of premature rupture of membranes again, what steps should I take doctor
Hello Mira Ra, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Premature rupture of membranes (to) is a condition in which the amniotic membrane leaks or breaks before the woman enters labor. can occur at any gestational age. The cause of its occurrence is not known with certainty, but there are several things that increase a woman's risk of experiencing it, including:
infections of the reproductive organs, especially sexually transmitted infections
smoking during pregnancy
bleeding from the vagina
a history of previous preterm labor
Until now there is no specific way that can be actively done to prevent it from happening. However, you can reduce the risk of it occurring by avoiding the risk factors above:
Avoid smoking and avoid exposure to secondhand smoke
If you have an infection in your reproductive organs (experiencing abnormal vaginal discharge is one of the main symptoms), seek treatment immediately to a gynecologist.
Get regular antenatal checks
If you experience leakage of amniotic fluid, go to the hospital immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
