The Location Of The Placenta Covers The Birth Canal At 21 Weeks’ Gestation?
Hello doctor, at the age of 21 weeks I did a 2D ultrasound and the doctor said that my placenta was still under and covered the birth canal (previa total) so that the possibility of the process of giving birth later was performed by SC. the question: is the placenta still able to go up so that it does not cover the birth canal and can give birth normally? And how to make the placenta rise and not cover the birth canal? And is placenta previa dangerous or not? Thank you.

Placenta previa is a condition where the placenta is located in the lower uterine segment. Under normal conditions in pregnancy, the normal location of the placenta is at the top, thus helping the process of supply of nutrients and oxygen for fetal growth and development. However, when the plcenta lies in the lower uterine segment, the risk of bleeding during pregnancy can affect the general condition of the fetus.
Basically the location of the abnormal plcenta or placenta previa, can be on the side of the lower uterine segment, is partially covered the birth canal, and fully close the birth canal. When the uterus is getting bigger and the fetus is getting bigger, a shift in the location of the placenta previa can trigger bleeding, because the attachment of the placenta opens and causes bleeding.
Some complications that can occur due to placenta previa are:
1. blood clots
2. premature birth
3. interruption of oxygen supply
In connection with your question, the results of your obstetrician's examination stating the location of the placenta closes the birth canal, then these complications are likely to occur, so what can be done is to prevent the burden of excessive activity and exercise routine control and recognize danger signs of placenta previa. Thus, during pregnancy, the doctor's supervision will still help your pregnancy in a stable condition until the next clinical period. So that the dangers that harm your pregnancy can be minimized.
While it is possible that your current placental location cannot be moved upward to achieve a reasonable condition, so that patients with placenta that completely cover the birth canal may be done by cesarean, however, all this depends on the doctor and the results of your doctor's examination, because the doctor You better know the condition of your pregnancy. Thus, at this time there is no effort that can be done by patients to change the position of placenta previa, except to keep your pregnancy stable according to doctor's instructions and routine control in the supervision of your obstetrician.
