The Placenta Is Low, Does Not Obstruct The Birth Canal Whether Labor Should Be Caesarean?
In the morning the doctor, I was 23w pregnant, since the UK 15w to now often experience spots even though the volume is not right … from dr.spog mmg placenta low lt, if tired and contraction will definitely be spots, even though the results of ultrasound mmg are located right down and does not obstruct the birth canal … I want to ask if the placenta does not obstruct the birth canal but often spots during pregnancy, it is still possible to give birth normally without the risk of bleeding? Explanation please ! Tks
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Placenta previa is an implantation of the placenta close to the mouth of the cervix in the inside. Some locations of placenta previa include:
1. Placenta previa totalis: the mouth of the cervix is completely covered by the placenta
2. Partial placenta previa: cervix mouth is partially covered by the placenta
3. Marginal previa placenta: the tip of the placenta is at the edge of the cervix
Symptoms of placenta previa generally include bleeding from the birth canal without pain. Complaints of bleeding only occur a little but arise repeatedly. Placenta previa is suspected in women> 20 weeks who experience complaints of small amounts of recurrent bleeding. The exact diagnosis is made through an ultrasound examination to assess the location of the placenta.
In the case of placenta previa totalis, normal delivery cannot be performed because the baby's birth canal is completely covered by the placenta and caesarean section is indicated as a method of labor. In cases of mild placenta previa with head presentation such as marginal type as in your case, it can still be considered for a normal delivery. The risk of bleeding remains, so it needs to be assessed routinely by obstetricians.
To avoid heavy bleeding, patients are advised to have total anxiety at home, reduce activity and not do strenuous exercise, and be aware that if there is severe bleeding from the birth canal, it is necessary to be immediately taken to the hospital.
That's all, hope you can help
