Hello Sagytaa Trieznaeny,
Amniotic fluid is a residual discharge from the baby inside the amniotic sac, which has the function of supporting the baby's life while in the womb. This amniotic fluid will remain in the amniotic sac during pregnancy, the amniotic fluid that seeps can cause infection, miscarriage, or fetal death in the womb if the volume is drastically reduced.
The amniotic fluid is normally clear or slightly cloudy and odorless. Normally the amniotic sac will rupture and expel the amniotic fluid in the labor process or when the gestational age is> 36 weeks. This is caused by uterine contractions followed by opening / widening of the lower part of the uterus.
Amniotic fluid that breaks / comes out before full-term gestational age needs to be watched out for and further testing with an obstetrician. Rupture of amniotic fluid prematurely is called premature rupture of membranes. Premature rupture of membranes can occur due to infection of the uterus / vagina, too much amniotic fluid (polyhydramnios), twin pregnancy, vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, history of premature rupture of membranes in previous pregnancies, distance between pregnancies <6 months.
The amniotic fluid that comes out can provide the following complaints:
Wet in the underpants or feeling wet in the genitals in the form of fluid rather than mucus
Amniotic fluid runs down the feet
Like the taste of BAK but can't be held
Feels like something is bursting / broken, followed by spending large amounts of amniotic fluid.
Excessive amniotic fluid followed by abdominal pain / contraction
The doctor needs to do a supporting examination such as a pH test with litmus paper that comes out of the vagina, to determine whether it is really amniotic or not. The doctor may also perform an ultrasound examination to see the volume of amniotic fluid in the sac and see if there are abnormalities in the uterus. Treatment is generally given according to the abnormality found on examination. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
