Slip While Pregnant?
Good morning. I want to ask, I was hit by an accident. I slipped on the ground and when I fell my right hip was hit after that I hit my hand with the center of the next lamp. Allahdullilah quickly let go. I am 3 months pregnant, does it affect my fetal condition
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Exposure to the hip during pregnancy can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. Likewise with being electrocuted.
If the impact that you experienced before was mild, and there are no significant complaints that you experienced after the impact, for example, only in the form of minor pains, this condition is likely not dangerous. However, if the impact you experience is quite tight, or complaints arise, such as bleeding from the birth canal, abdominal pain and tightness that persists for a long time with a strong intensity, and so on, then this could have a negative impact on the health of the fetus in your womb. In these conditions, a direct doctor's examination is necessary to monitor the health of the mother and fetus.
Electrocution, if it involves a small and temporary electric voltage, it can be harmless. What you need to worry about is, if the voltage that flows in your body is large enough (more than 220 volts). This condition can cause interference with heart function. The heart has a vital function to pump oxygen-rich blood throughout the body, as well as oxygen-poor blood to the lungs. Disturbances in heart function can interfere with the overall body condition, including also inhibiting blood perfusion to the fetus. Not only that, being electrocuted by high-voltage electricity can also trigger burns, miscarriage, fetal development disorders, maternal and fetal death, and so on.
Needs to be evaluated further, what about your current condition after experiencing the impact and shock? Do you have any complaints?
Given the very limited information you provide regarding your condition, we recommend that you go directly to a gynecologist. The doctor will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, starting from a physical examination, ultrasound, and several other supporting tests if needed to monitor your health condition. You and your fetus.
Next time, so that a similar incident does not recur, increase your vigilance, including when walking, doing activities around electricity, and so on. Take good care of your health, and also regularly control your pregnancy to an obstetrician every month.
Hope this helps ..
