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.

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

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

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?

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
