Question: Hi..doctor said that I have low lying placenta...what precautions I have to take..
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. A low lying placenta, by itself, may not require any treatment. If it is early in your pregnancy, before the twentieth week, then there is a good chance that the placenta will shift into an upward position as your uterus expands. If the placenta stays at a low lying position but is not near enough to the cervix to be classified as placenta previa. However there are treatments to prevent the two most common complications of a low lying placenta: bleeding and preterm labor. To prevent these problems some women are placed on bed rest or limited activity. Especially activities that result in bouncing or jarring of the lower abdomen need to be avoided. Similarly some women need to refrain from sexual intercourse, or the use of rectal suppositories or vaginal douches/suppositories. The degree of restriction depends on whether or not the woman is experiencing any vaginal bleeding or pre-term labor.

Answer: Hi low lying placenta can move upwards as pregnancy continues. Depending on the cervical length doctor may advise bed rest, progestron injections/ tablets and even cervical stitches called cerclage. Low cervical lenght due to low lying placenta can lead to pre term labour. Avoid strenuous activity, long rough road journeys and if advised by doctor intercourse.
