Is it a previa if placenta is posterior w/ its lower edge @ the level of internal os. Grade 0? . doc advise no sex. Will it hurt if we do?

Is it a previa if placenta is posterior w/ its lower edge @ the level of internal os. Grade 0? . doc advise no sex. Will it hurt if we do?

Previa: It sounds like you have at least a low lying placenta if not at least a marginal previa. Sex causes uterine contractions for a couple days afterwards, so based on your description I would advise the same thing. If you bleed after sex, you won't know if its the previa or just post coital bleeding. Do something else. By the way the grading has nothing to do with previa. ...Read more

I have a posterior placenta reaching the internal OS at 32 weeks. What chance is there of it moving sufficiently by term to allow a natural birth?

I have a posterior placenta reaching the internal OS at 32 weeks. What chance is there of it moving sufficiently by term to allow a natural birth?

Slim chance: Most placentas migrate upwards with uterine growth between weeks 20 and 30 of pregnancy. Moreover, at 32 weeks, any premature contractions are likely to expose the placental edge that is now present at the cervical os. If there is any bleeding whatsoever, please contact your OB MD immediately. ...Read more

My level II ultrasound shows Placenta position- "Fundo anterior lower margin of placenta 4.0 CM from internal os" What precautions should I take??

As per OB.: You did not state how far along the pregnancy you are. If before third trimester, the placenta may migrate posteriorly and further from the os. Speak to your OB for any concerns. If there is any concern on the part of the OB, a follow-up ultrasound will be gotten. There are however no precautions you should take, unless so directed by tour OB. Why does you profile say 25 yo male? ...Read more

What exactly does it means that the placenta is covering the internal os?

What exactly does it means that the placenta is covering the internal os?

Placenta previa: This is a concern because if it persists it blocks the baby from coming out vaginally and carries a risk of severe bleeding. If present early in the pregnancy it may often resolve as the uterus continues to grow. If it doesn't resolve delivery must be by cesarean section. ...Read more

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

I am Jasjeet 28 years old. It is my 2nd pregnancy at 21 week. My placenta is low lying reached 3mm from the OS. It is posterior Plz help me m worried?

Placentas "travel": Placentas tend to travel upward from the cervical os as the pregnancy progresses. If you have not been experiencing bleeding at this point there is hope that will occur. If bleeding starts call your OB MD immediately as hemorrhages are common with low lying placentas and can be quite "dramatic" in amounts. ...Read more

I am 4months pregnant and is said that I have a placenta posterior low lying grade 0 is there a posibility that placenta will move? What will I do?

Uterus grows: A low lying placenta at 4 months is something to monitor but not something to panic about. The placenta does not actually move but as the uterus grows the placenta will then be the normal position. It is too early in the pregnancy to be thinking about a C-section for low lying placentas. The majority of these will be resolved on later sonograms. ...Read more

Nuchal thickness: Everyone gets offered the quad test screening for down's, trisomy 18 and spina bifida. Its actually a very good test. An increased nuchal thickness is associated with increase risk of Down's syndrome, but usually other things are seen with it. A cell free DNA test may be a good one to check. ...Read more

I just had my five months anomaly scan n was told that my placenta is posterior grade0 maturity, 3 CM away from OS. What does this mean???

All good: Your placenta is on the Barack wall of your uterus and well above your cervix so it won't be in the way when the baby comes out and it isn't getting old and wearing out. It should still do a good job of nourishing the baby. It's all good. ...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
