Hello. . I am anisa aged 25 years. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my first child. When I was in control, the obgyn doctor said I had additional placenta arsu placenta succenturiata. What I want to ask about the cause of this abnormality in the placenta, will it affect fetal growth and development?

1 Answer:

Hello Anisa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Placenta Succenturiata is a disorder in the placenta in which the placenta has additional lobes. These additional lobes may be 1 or more and although these lobes may appear separate from the main placenta, there is usually a vascular (blood vessel) connection with the main placenta. This condition can occur in 3 in 1000 pregnancies.


Placenta Succenturiata itself does not cause deformities (birth defects) in the fetus, but this condition is related to the occurrence of several other pregnancy complications, such as vasa previa (the umbilical cord leaves or covers the birth canal), rupture or breakage of the blood vessels that connect the succenturiate lobes to the placenta. primarily, the placenta that remains in the uterus after delivery. Vasa previa can cause bleeding in pregnancy and cause fetal distress. Rupture of blood vessels can cause heavy bleeding during delivery to fetal distress and death of the baby during delivery. The remaining placentas can cause heavy bleeding during childbirth, prolonged bleeding (past the puerperium), and increase the risk of postpartum uterine infection.


The cause of placenta succenturiata is not well known, the risk is increased in women who are pregnant at old age as well as in women who undergo IVF (in vitro fertilization) or IVF.


In a condition like what you are experiencing, you should always control regularly with your obstetrician. Be careful in your choice of activities, and ask clearly whether you can have sex during your pregnancy or not (you are not advised to have sex if there is vaginal bleeding during your pregnancy or there is vasa previa). Go to the hospital immediately if you are bleeding profusely from the vagina or you feel your stomach suddenly becomes hard and painful, or you notice reduced movement of your fetus.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
