The Cause Of Premature Rupture Of Membranes And The Possibility Of Recurrence In Subsequent Pregnancies?
Afternoon want to ask. Previously sorry if this is a little long. I 2 weeks ago experienced premature rupture of amniotic fluid at the age of 24 weeks. I was hospitalized. On the 3rd day I experienced active contractions and gave birth to a premature baby. Until now, the doctor in charge of me did not know the main cause, so before I experienced my severe flu, my head had a fever, dizziness, fever for a week, I also often stressed and itchy vaginal discharge. Is there one of the main factors that I experienced the cause of it happening to? or because of other factors such as heredity and weak content? And one more thing is the next pregnancy I will most likely experience it or more premature birth? Please answer thanks
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The condition for premature rupture of membranes before 37 weeks' gestation is called PPROM (preterm premature rupture of membrane). In most cases, the exact cause of PPROM is often not known, however, in PPROM, the most common cause is infection of the uterus. Some other risk factors that are known to influence the occurrence of PPROM include:
Poor antenatal examination. Sexually transmitted infections. History of premature labor. History of vaginal bleeding in pregnancy. Smoking during pregnancy. and cause symptoms such as itching, pain, redness in the vagina, or pain when urinating), then maybe the cause of your PPROM is an infection of your reproductive tract.
If you have a history of previous preterm labor, then you do experience an increased risk of preterm labor also in your next pregnancy. But of course this is not always the case (only an increased risk only), of course there are still women who experience preterm labor in previous pregnancies and deliver at normal gestational age in subsequent pregnancies. However, you must ensure that in your next pregnancy, you must carry out routine pregnancy checks to the obstetrician. It is very important to detect early certain risks that can cause premature labor again (for example, if you have an infection in your reproductive organs again, the infection can be detected early and can be treated as soon as possible).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
