Signs Of Miscarriage In The Second Trimester?
Morning, I want to ask. I am currently 16 weeks pregnant. I often get pain in the lower left abdomen, sometimes it reaches my vagina. Then the stomach also feels tense. I am worried about this condition. Are miscarriages in the second trimester always marked with bleeding huh? Or just stomach pain.
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Miscarriage is a process of termination of pregnancy or fetal death before 20 weeks' gestation. This causes the fetus can not develop and cause the pregnancy to stop. Some signs of miscarriage that are often found are:
1. recurrent bleeding
2. abdominal pain
3. The fetus is not developing or fetal movement is less than normal
4. out of tissue and blood from the vagina
5. pregnancy signs or complaints disappear
All of the above are complaints or symptoms (including bleeding) that require the patient to do an obstetrician's examination to ensure the presence or absence of pregnancy problems, especially those that lead to the risk of miscarriage. Thus, these complaints can not stand alone, but it requires a direct examination by an obstetrician to ensure a miscarriage. As is the case with bleeding or stomach ache complaints in the second trimester, there is bleeding and or abdominal pain, especially those that often recur, so it is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor to ascertain the possibility of a miscarriage, without the obstetrician's examination, then there is no possibility of miscarriage.
While the risk of miscarriage will increase, if some of these triggers of miscarriage are experienced, such as:
1. genetic disorders
2. pregnancy infections
3. placental abnormalities
5. sexually transmitted infections
6. food poisoning
7. pregnant women with a history of smoking or alcohol
8. the age of pregnant women is quite old or more than 35 years
9. mother's weight is not ideal
10. trauma or injury to the uterus
Therefore, by knowing the triggers or risk factors for miscarriage, you can try to prevent the risk of miscarriage. One of them is by avoiding risk factors, and counseling before pregnancy and during pregnancy. Keeping your stamina in good physical condition and avoiding sleeping late, is also expected to prevent a high risk of miscarriage.
And if you currently feel a complaint of pain that is disturbing, and the stomach feels tense, then this is not always a miscarriage. This complaint may be caused by fetal movements, or contractions in the uterus due to physical fatigue, lack of sleep, or indigestion. So to ascertain whether this abdominal pain is a sign of miscarriage, you should consider consulting directly with your obstetrician, the doctor will conduct a physical examination and supporting examination or ultrasound to help find out your clinical condition and the condition of your pregnancy. Thus proper handling will be given to you.
For now, if you feel physical fatigue approaching, then you should rest or take a few days off when you work. In addition, keeping your body relaxed and healthy is expected to help restore your stamina during this pregnancy.
Thus the info we can convey.
