What Cause Placenta To Abrupt
I had a stillbirth due to a placenta abruption. NO known cause.One healthy birth previously. Would I be likely to have another abrupt or healthy preg?
Abruption chances: First of all, I am sorry for your loss. The risk for a recurrent complicated placental abruption in your next pregnancy is about 33/1000. Special surveillance would need to be undertaken about 3 months prior to the gestational age of the baby you lost due to the first placental abruption. Best of luck to you. ...Read more
Implant Location: Control of placenta implantation location poorly understood; complex mind, brain+body controls within mother early pregnancy. If placenta implants near uterine opening/cervix ; especially if it grows over the opening, then placenta previa (tearing ; bleeding; sometimes massive ; mutually fatal) of the placenta is probable in late pregnancy; one of the many reasons for prenatal screening ; care. ...Read more
Random chance: The embryo implants on the uterine lining, and at that location the placenta starts to grow. Usually, it is on a portion of the uterus that will stretch and thin during pregnancy, and is nowhere near the internal cervical opening. However, sometimes the embryo implants very near the internal cervical opening, resulting in a low-lying placenta or even a placenta covering the opening, req. C-sec. ...Read more
If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?

Uterine scars/defect: The placenta tends to implant over pre-existing uterine scars or defects; when that occurs, the invasive nature of the placenta can lead to abnormally increased vascularity in areas without sufficient uterine muscle to control the bleeding once the placenta is delivered (particularly near the cervix). That is potentially life-threatening if undiagnosed until delivery and managed in small hospital! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If big enough, yes: Abruption is a bleed from the placenta; a disruption of either the mother or baby's blood supply. Many causes: trauma, high blood pressure, drugs (cocaine), preterm labor, polyhydramnios. Can be very large or very small, so even US can miss a diagnosis. Symptoms: usually preterm contractions, sometimes vaginal bleed. Fetal monitoring is necessary. Wait, watch; abruption can self-heal sometimes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If the placenta is lower than normal and the embryo growth is slower by 15 days what could be potential causes and any remedies?
Differnt things: A low lying placenta is a possible problem, but generally it will not give you any particular problem. If it grows across the cervix, it is a placenta previa, and would necessitate a c-section. As to slower than average growth, it is much more disturbing, as a child that is not growing properly has trouble at birth. The most common cause here is smoking. If you smoke, quit. ...Read more
