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

What is anterior low lying placenta means in usg scan? 4th running for me. Is it any problem my baby growth. Please suggest.

Low-lying placenta: A low-lying placenta is when the placenta has implanted near the cervix but not over it as in a placenta previa.

Hi, 14th week running for me. Today I went to scan. They mentioned - anterior low lying placenta. Is it problem to my unbron baby. Please sugges?

Placental location: An anterior low lying placenta is a possible cause of bleeding if running at this stage of pregnancy. It is unlikely to cause a serious problem for your baby, however. Usually the low lying placenta will be located higher up as the uterus grows, and will not be a problem for delivery. Another sonogram in a month may show it to be in a more normal position. ...Read more

What does placenta anterior encoarching on lower segment means? I am 5 months pregnant

Not to worry: This is a minor detail of an ultrasound report and only has relevance for an obstetrician who might be doing a cesarean section. A c-section incision is made through the lower uterine segment and so knowing this provides a caution to the surgeon when s/he operates. Generally in pregnancy, as the uterus and baby grow, a placenta tends to move back from this position so I doubt it will be important ...Read more

By then, most "low lying" placentas have resolved on their own. In the meantime, caution with intercourse may be prudent to avoid anxiety and stressfrom vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
