Informed via lumbar MRI report that my spinal canal is congenitally stenotic. Is it safe to assume that my thoracic and cervical is too? TY

Placenta 3.8cm from os. Passed 5mm blood clot. OBYGn says not placenta issue as it is not close to os. Do you agree? Thinks it's cervix

Low Lying Placenta: Depending upon where you are in your pregnancy it most likely is not associated with the placenta.

The placenta being 3.8 cm from the cervix is not unusual. If you have bright red vaginal bleeding that does not subside then see your physician or contact them immediately. Hope this helps. ...Read more

An exam by a provider can tell for sure. ...Read more
