Question:My Placenta is low laying ... Is there any problem ??
Answer: Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix.
Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment.
In some cases, a placenta that is seen to be low-lying will move upwards later in pregnancy.
Any bleeding from placenta praevia at the entrance to the womb in the second half of the pregnancy can be heavy and a risk to the baby and the mother's health. After a low-lying placenta diagnosis, seek medical advice if there's any bleeding during pregnancy.
Having a low-lying placenta means it is more likely a caesarean section delivery will be recommended.
There are several types of placenta praevia:
A low-lying placenta is near the cervical opening but not covering it. It will often move upward in the uterus as your due date approaches.
A partial placenta praevia covers part of the cervical opening.
A total placenta praevia covers and blocks the cervical opening.
Question:Any remedy for low lying placenta to shift upwards
Answer: low lying placenta can move up during the course of pregnancy. You must avoid intercourse and report any case of bleeding to your doctor. In a rare case that placenta does not move up also, chances of anything bad happening to the baby or mother is very less. Just be careful about episodes of bleeding and please do not have sexual intercourse till you are advised that it is safe to do so.
