What is the fetal fibronectin test?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. David Finke
Obstetrics and Gynecology 15 years experience
To rule out PTL.: Fetal fibronectin is a protein that is thought to be the "glue" connecting the baby's amniotic sac to the wall of the mom's uterus. In preterm labor, this glue breaks down and leaks out into the vagina. The fetal fibronectin test checks for the presence of this protein in the vagina. If the test is negative, preterm labor (ptl) is unlikely. If the test is positive, it doesn't mean much.

Is internal fetal monitoring require an invasive procedure?

Yes: Internal monitoring requires that the bag of water is broken. If it is intact, the doctor will break the bag of water with a tiny plastic hook. If contractions need to be monitored, a small plastic tube (iupc) is slid into the uterus, it gets squeezed during contractions and monitors intensity. If the baby needs to be monitored a small heart rate monitor is attached to the baby's scalp.

Dr. Angela Savatiel
Obstetrics and Gynecology 26 years experience
No: While an ultrasound done at 20 weeks can pick up many major abnormalities, subtle heart defects, cleft palates, and chromosomal problems may still be missed. The experience of the technician and the doctor reading the results is also a factor.

Is it better for my liver and fetus to try psychotherapy instead of medications?

Yes: Psychotherapy or counseling will not affect the liver or fetus. Acupuncture may also be tried for anxiety and/or depression. Drug therapy should be utilized when other less invasive treatments fail.
