Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Placenta Previa is a low-lying placenta, which is located near or on the cervix. Placenta Previa is of concern if there is a gestational age nearing delivery. Whereas in middle pregnancy, this is nothing to worry about as long as it does not cause bleeding.
In early and mid-pregnancy, the placenta that lies below can slowly rise to the top every time the uterus is enlarged according to gestational age. Placenta Previa that occurs until the end of pregnancy cannot rise to the uterine body. At the time of labor, the placenta can completely cover the birth canal, cover part of the birth canal, be on the edge of the birth canal and be 2 cm above the edge of the birth canal. The position of the uterus is assessed at delivery until the opening is 5 cm. The placenta Previa that covers the birth canal will be planned for immediate sectio delivery. Whereas the Previa placenta that does not cover the birth canal can be arranged for a normal delivery if there are no other difficulties.
So, you don't need to worry as long as there isn't bleeding. If bleeding occurs immediately to the nearest hospital emergency room, so that further testing can be done. The doctor will advise you of total bed rest until the bleeding stops and the fetus is in good condition. Henceforth you are expected to be able to limit your activities and rest more. Pregnancy like this is a risky pregnancy, so labor should be done in the hospital.
Meanwhile, straining during bowel movements will not worsen the condition of placenta previa. However, it is still best to avoid the habit of straining when defecating, because it can trigger hemorrhoids or aggravate. To avoid straining during bowel movements, consume lots of water and papaya.
Thus hopefully useful.
