hello I want to ask, if in the first pregnancy a mother experiences placental abruption, will the mother in the next pregnancy also experience the same thing? if yes is there a solution to reduce this risk?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Placental abruption or placental abortion is a condition in which the placenta is released before labor occurs. This condition is a very dangerous condition for the mother, but especially for the fetus. The cause of placental abruption is often not known with certainty, but in some cases, abruption of the placenta can occur due to trauma / injury / impact on the stomach during pregnancy (for example due to a traffic accident or fall), it can also occur due to a decrease in the amount of amniotic fluid in time fast.
Women who experience placental abruption in a previous pregnancy that is not caused by trauma / injury to the abdomen, indeed have a higher risk for experiencing abruption of the placenta in the next pregnancy. If your placental abruption in a previous pregnancy is caused by trauma / injury to the stomach, then there is no increase in abruption of the placenta in subsequent pregnancies. The following are some other risk factors for placental abruption:
chronic hypertension or hypertension in pregnancy smoking during pregnancy drug use such as cocaine during pregnancy premature rupture of membranes in utero infection during pregnancy in old age (especially over 40 years) You can try to reduce your risk of developing abruptio placenta in subsequent pregnancies by analyzing the above risk factors and avoid risk factors that you can avoid (for example not smoking, not using illegal drugs, being careful during pregnancy so as not to fall). You are strongly advised to carry out routine pregnancy control to the obstetrician or to the midwife during your pregnancy. If you have a high-risk pregnancy (for example, you have hypertension or have hypertension in pregnancy, being pregnant in old age, you have certain illnesses during your pregnancy, diabetes in pregnancy, or other conditions), you must exercise control with your obstetrician, not may only go to the midwife.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
