Early ultrasound: Assuming your question is regarding the location of the placenta. An early ultrasound indicating a low lying placenta will be repeated later in pregnancy. Most will migrate to attain better blood supply away from the cervix. Very few remain low lying. If it does, then your doctor will follow you closely for signs of bleeding. At this point, a problem but one that will probably resolve. ...Read more

Placenta - anterior in upper and lower uterine segment, edge of placenta is 28 mm away from internal os, what does this mean?

Placenta - anterior in upper and lower uterine segment, edge of placenta is 28 mm away from internal os, what does this mean?

It means all good!: The placenta is far enough away from the internal "hole" of the cervix that previa--a dangerous condition that can cause hemorrhage--is not an issue. The placenta has to go somewhere--the front (anterior), the top (fundus) or back (posterior). I don't know any more about your condition but based on that info, it all sounds ok! ...Read more

Ask the GYN MD....: Ask the GYN MD who ordered the test that has shown the above abnormality. It is difficult to make a determination about a "concern" without the proper context of history, exam and reason for testing. ...Read more

Placenta:posterior,dipping to the lower uterine segment os grade "o" maturity is it safe?

Yes: As long as the placenta does not dip down so low as to block the cervix (a placenta previa) this is not a problem. Grade 0 simply means that the placenta is still immature which is what is expected. Increased placental maturity too early is potentially a problem. ...Read more

Posterior lower uterine segment,to right. lower margin 8mm, from os.plasental maturity grade 2. gestation period 32-33 weeks'Can i have normal delivry?

There is a small cha: This depends on where your placenta is at 36-37 weeks and your ob gyn. Usually it is too dangerous to try to delivery vaginally if the placenta is closer than 1-2 cm from the os due to risk of placenta shearing off wall of uterus which would be very dangerous for your baby. It is possible that the placenta will grow away from the os as the uterus expands. ...Read more

Uterus 60x40x45, myometrium is heterogeneous and there is hypoechoic region at the lower uterine segment. The endometrial stripe is measured at 10 mm.

Several causes: The first thing coming to mind with this info given your age is adenomyosis, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found throughout the wall of the uterus. Have you had MRI? This technique is good for diagnosis. Typically the cure is hysterectomy. Endometriosis may also still be a factor, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found about the pelvis. Follow up with your GYN! ...Read more

I have fibroids in the lower uterine segment. My md scheduled me for a tah. Any alternative treatment?

Yes! Yes! Yes!: Even with large fibroids in the lower segment, most people can have some form of minimally invasive hysterectomy such as a davinci robotically assisted or laparoscopically assisted hyst. Get a second opinion from someone skilled and experienced in minimally invasive options to see what your options are. If it's a good option for you, save yourself the large incision and harder recovery of a tah! ...Read more

My doctor said baby is very near to lower uterine segment. I am 31 weeks pregnant and my cervix length is 3.5cm. What precautions I have to take?

No trampolining: Seriously, there is not anything you can do as usually the baby doesn't "drop" into the pelvis until week 36. To avoid premature labor, minimize extremely strenuous activities and if uterine cramping begins, notify your OB MD immediately. ...Read more

The IUD is sited abnormally low being in the lower uteirne segment extending towards the cervix.I have a low lying iud.Could it be doctor's fault?

Unlikely: There is a standard way that iuds are inserted. Sometimes there is an anatomical difference in women that forces the iud to be lower in the uterus. Sometimes, it just happens. I don't think it is your doctor's "fault". ...Read more

The mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is sited abnormaly low being in lower uteirne segment extending towards the cervix.I have low lying iud.Do they have to remove or repla?

The mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is sited abnormaly low being in lower uteirne segment extending towards the cervix.I have low lying iud.Do they have to remove or repla?

Replace IUD!: If the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is not near the uterine fundus, it will not obstruct the tubal ostia and may not work as intended. That means that you could get pregnant with the iud in situ, a very dangerous situation. Please talk to your gynecologist about replacing the iud under ultrasound guidance so that it is snug against the top of your uterus. Also check for uterine anomalies and consider paragard instead. ...Read more

A marginal placental cord insertion is seen today, far removed from the lower uterine segm?

Okay: This usually causes no problems as long as it is away from the cervix i.e. thr lower uterine segment and actually in the placenta even if it is the margin of the placenta. It is much more worrisome if it is a "velamentous" insertion into the membranes. ...Read more

What does OB Dr say?: If you're still having brown stains it sounds like your body is not ready yet to get pregnant. Your gynecologist is in the best position to give a prediction about the impact of the fibroid on a pregnancy. ...Read more
