Partial Placenta Previa At 20 Weeks
Yes: yes, very likelyGet a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Marginal/partial placenta previa is when the placenta comes to the edge of the cervix and maybe even covers a small part of the cervix. Not uncommon on early ultrasounds. As the pregnancy progresses, there is a good chance that this will resolve.

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.

I have a marginal placenta previa at 20 weeks. My midwife recommends pelvic rest and no intercourse. Is masturbation okay?
See answer: This is a question you should definitely discuss with your doctor and/or midwife who are most familiar with you and your condition. Masturbation and orgasm are associated with uterine contraction which potentially may put you and your baby at risk of bleeding or other complications. Always best to heed the advice of your personal healthcare providers who are most familiar with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
