Normal Biparietal Diameter (BPD) Value At 17 Weeks Gestation?
I want to ask. Is BPD with a size of 3.08 cm at 17 weeks’ fetus normal or not. Will you experience abnormalities, or due to the age of the womb is still young. Trims
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. BPD or biparietal diameter, is one of the measurement scales made to determine the age of the fetus and the presence or absence of potential abnormalities in the fetus. BPD is measured by calculating the distance between the two sides of the head. Besides BPD, there are also other measuring scales, namely HC (head circumference), AC (abdominal circumference), and FL (femur bone length).
Regarding your question, the figure 3.08 cm or 30.8 mm in a 17-week fetus is actually still below normal. But these results still have to be confirmed again with other inspection components. If everything else is normal, chances are this number will also be normal. But if followed by other numbers that are also not normal, then there could indeed be abnormalities, which can be caused by genetic mutations, chromosomal abnormalities, infections, chemical exposure and so forth.
Our advice, you should immediately consult and consult your obstetric problem again to the obstetrician, because it can not be taken if without full information from direct examination. With a check, you can know when to control again to see the development of your fetus. So, hopefully answering your question.
