How Long Does Vaginal Bleeding Associated With Placenta Previa Last
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

Varies: Placenta previa is a condition in which the placenta implants directly over the cervix and blocks the birth canal. For this reason, women with placenta previa require a c-section. Since the placenta is exposed more, it is more prone to bleeding as well. Bleeding ranges from continuous or occasional spotting to torrential hemorrhage that could threaten the lives of both mother and baby. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: There is no surgical or mefical treatment yo correct placenta previa however sometimes the placenta can change or move so that it no longer overlies the opening of the cervix if you have true placenta previa it needs to be closely monitored especially the closer you get to going in labor as at that time your cervix will dilate and can cause severe bleeding.

Leaky vessels: 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.

No contractions.: Because the bleeding does not involve the contractile part of the uterus, only the placenta over the cervix. The placenta is devoid of innervation, therefore the mother does not experience pain in bleeding previa unless preterm labor is also present. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Third trimester.: Most cases of placenta previa wither resolve or start bleeding by the third trimester (>28 weeks). Avoid all ssris, aspirin-like drugs (nsaids, motrin, aleve, advil) and only take regular tylenol (acetaminophen) during pregnancy. Avoid intercourse and heavy lifting/exercise until delivery or resolution of your placenta previa. Serial ultrasounds with an experienced maternal-fetal medicine specialist are warranted!
