Is The Placenta Under The Fetus Dangerous?
, My pregnancy is now entering 20 weeks.
Thank you for the question.
The placenta is the structure of the uterus that functions to exchange nutrients and oxygen with the baby. In general, the placenta is located at the top or the side of the uterus, but in some cases, the placenta may be in the lower part of the uterus and cover the cervix or cervix, which is often referred to as placenta previa. This is usually influenced by previous pregnancy factors, history of surgery, and previous history of placenta previa.
Basically, this condition is something that is relatively harmless, and if detected in the early stages of pregnancy, as the pregnancy develops, the placenta will rise to the top of the uterus. In addition, mothers usually experience symptoms such as the appearance of spots or blood that comes out during pregnancy. It is this bleeding which, if too much and is too severe, will cause danger. Therefore, if you experience symptoms such as bleeding, you should consult your obstetrician. Reduce strenuous activities that can trigger blood loss, such as sports that involve running, jumping, or crouching, and having sex.
Do not forget to routinely control pregnancy to monitor the development of the position of the placenta, and if the placenta is still below when the final trimester and near the time of delivery, then the doctor will consider performing a SC operation. Associated with vaginal discharge, this is a natural thing that happens during pregnancy, and while vaginal discharge is still considered normal, there is no need for special treatment to be done other than maintaining the cleanliness of your intimate organ area.
Hopefully this information can help.
