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 more

Will vaginal spotting/bleeding stop placenta previa resolves? Does recurrent bleeding in 2nd tr indicate that placenta previa is unlikely to resolve?

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 more

Can placenta previa be corrected with bed rest?

Can placenta previa be corrected with bed rest?

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 more

How does placenta previa cause preterm delivery?

Bleeding and Cntrxns: 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 more

Can a placenta abruption cause the baby to die?

If big enough, yes: 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 more

Is it abruptio or placenta previa that bleeds when placenta is low?

Is it abruptio or placenta previa that bleeds when placenta is low?

May be both: A previa is usually painless bleeding when the cervix is changing (dilating) causing bleeding from torn vessels being sheared off. It is a type of abruption although any bleeding from a detaching placenta is strictly called an abruption. These are usually away from the cervix and can be associated with cramping, pain, or heavy bleeding. If you have a previa, let your doc know if you bleed. ...Read more

It can: Placenta previa means that the placenta is blocking to cervix, which is the opening from the uterus to the vagina. If the cervix starts to open, heavy bleeding can occur, making it necessary to deliver early to protect mom's health. To reduce the risk of life-threatening bleeding, doctors may deliver early. ...Read more

Yes, possible!: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal.

Can tetrogens cross to an embryo at implantation? Or does this only happen once the placenta is formed?

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

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
