The Head Has Entered The Pelvis 31 Weeks Pregnant?
I’m only 31 weeks pregnant. Check the midwife said the head has entered the pelvis. Is this normal and safe? Isn’t this too fast? With conditions like this is it safe for husband and wife hubs?
Hello Yori, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The entry of the fetal head into the pelvis indeed generally occurs in the final weeks of pregnancy or near the time to give birth, and sometimes faster in the first pregnancy. The entry of the head into the pelvis 4-6 weeks before the age of the womb is enough, but generally, the entry of the head will only cause complaints in the form of discomfort in the female area due to the pressure caused.
The inclusion of this head also will not necessarily cause or be accompanied by childbirth if there is no decrease in the head and also other processes in the uterus that cause a labor process, so that it is generally not dangerous.
Even so, because this condition is also very rare, it is advisable to check the condition of your fetus further to the obstetrician to further evaluate whether your current pregnancy condition is threatening preterm birth or not, and what the recommended therapy or medical treatment next.
The actual position of the fetus does not affect intercourse, but in your condition, it is very important to ascertain whether there is a threat of preterm birth or not because intercourse can cause contractions in the uterus or can cause tears in the membranes that can trigger premature births, so it is strongly recommended not to do it first until there is further advice from your obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
