Can Complete Placenta Previa Correct Itself
Yes: yes, very likelyGet a more detailed answer ›
Sometimes: Abruption is a bleed from the placenta; a disruption of either the mother or baby's blood supply. Many causes: trauma, high blood pressure, drugs (cocaine), preterm labor, polyhydramnios. Can be very large or very small, so even US can miss a diagnosis. Symptoms: usually preterm contractions, sometimes vaginal bleed. Fetal monitoring is necessary. Wait, watch; abruption can self-heal sometimes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will vaginal spotting/bleeding stop placenta previa resolves? Does recurrent bleeding in 2nd tr indicate that placenta previa is unlikely to resolve?
2 questions here: Answer to number one, not always. Answer number 2, not always. You will need periodic ultrasound monitoring to follow this issue and, most importantly, if you have significant bleeding, pain, or preterm labor get to hospital right away. Don't plan any trips. You need to be very careful or this may threaten the lives of both you and your baby. Follow your OBs advice and make sure you follow up. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not really.: If the diagnosis of placenta previa is made before 20 weeks, some women experience resolution of the morbid placental implantation with time - bedrest is not correcting the problem. As the uterus and the fetus grow, they pull on the placenta and stretch the lower uterine segment to "move" the placenta out of the way and allow for vaginal delivery at term. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can placenta previa move closer to rather than away from cervix over time? I had low-lying placenta @14w, marginal [email protected], partial [email protected]?
Probably harmful: Exposure to lead is probably harmful to the formation of the placental cells as well as the developing embryo and fetus. Since lead is a heavy metal, it may remain in placental, embryonic and fetal tissues for months to years and cause permanent and often irreversible damages. ...Read more

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and told I have complete placenta previa. How likely is it that it that a complete previa moves in order to avoid c section?
Is scar tissue anterior after a c-section?If so with 2nd c-sec will accreta be created if placenta is anterior?
Yes, and usually not: The uterine scar created by a cesarean section is anterior. The risk of placenta accreta or other abnomal placentation is increased after each c-section. Fortunately, an anterior placenta does not usually mean a placenta accreta. Based on a 2011 british study "359 deliveries by cs at first birth would result in one additional case of placenta previa in the next pregnancy. ". ...Read more
Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?
Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time.I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately.If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more

Distance form cervix: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri. Follow w/ US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can tetrogens cross to an embryo at implantation? Or does this only happen once the placenta is formed?
Yes, they can: Placenta and embryo evolve from the same structure, which is the clump of cells that originate from the division of the fused sperm/egg. Without blood supply from the mother, these events could not happen. So, with the blood to the evolving fetus/placenta, come the teratogens to the embryo. ...Read more
