Relationship Of Placenta Previa With A History Of Miscarriage?
, at this time I have entered the womb age 5 months to be exact 20 weeks 3 days, and on 28 November yesterday just consulted a doctor. thank God detun healthy but the doctor said my placenta was still below, and the doctor said it could still be normal delivery, I didn’t ask what the placenta was below, I just asked but why wasn’t everything healthy, and the doctor agreed. After I found out through the internet what is the placenta under there turned out to have some impact and there are several factors that caused it, one of which had undergone a curette surgery, I had had a miscarriage in the first pregnancy and finally curettage. After passing 20 weeks, can my placenta ascend to the uterus? Is it okay to have sex? Or have to wait for my placenta to go to the uterus first? The point is good for me and detun me how? Please answer yes, thanks in advance 🙂
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Placenta that is located low or below, also called the condition of placenta previa. During pregnancy, the uterus will develop and the normal placenta will expand upward and away from the cervix or cervix. When he remains at the bottom, especially until the baby's birth path, then it is a condition that must be handled carefully and seriously.
As you said, miscarriage and curettage are factors that can increase the risk of placenta previa, but besides that, there are several other risk factors such as having had a cesarean section, smoking, aged 35 years or more, and have had surgery on the uterus. In your condition, it is true that with a gestational age of 20 weeks, you still don't need to worry too much because there are still many opportunities for the placenta to move away from the cervix.
What you need to do now is not to do any heavy physical activity, no need to stress excessively, it's better if you avoid sexual intercourse first, and regularly check with your obstetrician to find out the development of the placenta. So, hopefully answering your question.
