Be cautious: No! A placenta previa can be dangerous and result in heavy bleeding. Anything that could disturb the previa should be avoided, like sex, fingers, really anything in the vagina. A previa can resolve over many weeks, so make sure your doctor is checking to see if it is still there. Until then, I would wait. Good luck! Dr S

Unlikely: Very unlikely! The failure rates of a tubal ligation are 1/200-1/400 over your lifetime, so the odds are very low. Good luck! Dr. S

It still could work: Rhogam can work up to 96 hours, so you have a good chance of being protected. You need an antibody screen drawn in about 6-8 weeks to be sure. Good luck! Dr. S
