What Do Doctors Check Placenta For After Birth
Make sure all is out: Retained placental tissue can cause problems such as bleeding and infection. Therefore, OB providers should check every placenta to ensure that it has been delivered intact or all pieces of it have come out of the uterus. Occasionally an OB will need to insert a hand up into the uterus or even scrape with an instrument to remove any remaining tissue. That mainly occurs if a very premature delivery.See 6 more doctor answers
Depends!: In any high risk or complicated deliveries, we send the placenta to pathology to look for any reason for the complications. In normal deliveries, the placenta is bundled together with other placentas and cremated. If you want to keep the placenta, you can ask your doctor. It does have to be handled in a special manner though. So let us know before your delivery.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes it is: Good OB doctors examine the placenta. Important to rule out a partially retained placenta. Also in all cases of intra-uterine growth retardation, if present, of babies.
Why am I still hurting after having a baby 9 months ago? I was diagnosed with placenta accreta after the birth of my child my doctor didn't do surgery to remove it he just pulled it out was he suppose to do that?
Confused..: Your information is a little confusing to me; are you concerned about long-term pain from your delivery, or asking whether the management of placenta accreta was appropriate in your case? Please clarify. Any time pain persists that far out after delivery it is abnormal and merits examination by a gynecologist. Standard management of suspected placenta accreta is prelabor cesarean hysterectomy @35w.See 1 more doctor answer

HPV: It would not be typical for a doctor to lie and tell a patient they had HPV or any other STD when they did not have it. Regardless, you can schedule a visit for an examination and pap smear. HPV can manifest as genital warts which the doctor could look for. They can also do a pap smear and see if it is present. HPV resolves in most cases in young women so it could have been there but not now

OB anxiety: It is not uncommon for pregnant women to have certain fears about the course of their pregnancies that should be shared with your treating OB MD. He/she can discuss what is reasonable and what is not to be concerned about. If that is not sufficient, your OB MD may ask you to see a mental health professional if your anxieties become extreme hindering your ongoing prenatal care.
I'm so scared to give birth to my placenta after baby. So frightened I'm going to die or it's not going to come out?
Think positively and: In such cases of unjustified fears, one should think positively and get established with a psychiatrist. The placenta will come out, but will the mother have post-partum depression, anxiety, or other post-partum mental illness? Such a mother can let her Ob-Gyn and her baby's pediatrician know if mood or anxiety symptoms are increasing, undesired, or strange. Help is available.
