Percentage Of Accuracy In Calculating HPL Based On Ultrasound Results?
Hello, I’m 8 months pregnant. At the age of 6 months of pregnancy I do fetomaternal ultrasound. And explained that female genitalia and HPL 24 February 2019. Is the examination correct.
Hello Ms. Nuri! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
Gestational age based on ultrasound results is more accurate if the USG examination is done in the first trimester. If it is done in the second trimester, it also needs to be adjusted to the first day of your last menstrual period. Before an ultrasound examination, the obstetrician will usually ask this to you or see the history in your pregnancy pregnancy book. To determine the sex, usually an ultrasound examination can see it from the age of 20 weeks' womb. At the age of 6 months of pregnancy, indeed an ultrasound examination can already see the sex of the fetus that the mother is carrying, but the results will also depend on the position and movement of the fetus during the examination. If the position of the genitals cannot be seen clearly, the determination of the sex is certainly not very accurate. However, if the position is good and gives a clear vision to the doctor, the doctor can explain well the sex of the fetus. Keep in mind, gender is not the main thing seen on an ultrasound examination. Doctors will prioritize looking at the health condition of the fetus and the mother's womb. At the end of the third trimester, do another ultrasound examination to see the health condition of the fetus and the mother's womb and plan for delivery. In certain conditions, babies cannot be born vaginally and certain actions need to be taken. The obstetrician will explain this after the examination.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
