Is It Dangerous To Get Black Spots Out Because Of Placenta Previa In The 3rd Pregnancy At The Age Of 39 Years?
I am 39 years old and I am pregnant with my 3rd child and I was diagnosed with placenta previa, at 28 weeks of pregnancy I was bleeding profusely and had to be hospitalized and totally bedrested. After being healthy I returned home and remained bedrest, at 32 weeks of pregnancy I was bleeding profusely again and was hospitalized again, after 3 days at home I had phlegm and blood. But the doctor did not dare to take action because the fetus weighed not enough, from that day until now I still come out black spots and big lumps like black flesh and red heart. Is it okay, the fetus is still actively moving. My previous pregnancy was normal, nothing like this. Even now, I only gained 3 kg.
Hello, Mrs. Connie Awang. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Placenta previa is a condition of the placenta that attaches to the lower part of the uterus near the cervix so that it covers part or all of the birth canal inside the uterus. Symptoms that usually appear include bleeding without pain at 22 weeks of gestation, blood that comes out fresh red, initially a little and can stop on their own but later can be repeated with more volume and without apparent reason. Generally, the fetus in pregnancy with placenta previa has a good condition if the bleeding is not so much.
Risk factors for placenta previa include
Pregnancy in the elderly (over 35 years) History of ever giving birth 2 times or more History of previous uterine surgery (Caesarean section, myomectomy) History of curettage History of miscarriage 2 times or more The worrying complication of placenta previa is excessive bleeding to anemia, shock , until the death of the mother. We recommend that you consult routinely with your obstetrician and gynecologist in order to get close observation of your condition and the fetus. Through physical examination and support by doctors, treatment can be planned according to the condition of the mother and fetus.
At home, patients are encouraged to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Immediately go to the doctor if there is a lot of bleeding, especially if accompanied by increased and weak pulse, cold palpable skin, and decreased consciousness.
