Question: my nt scan says posterior low lying placenta incresing to os . what does it mean
Answer: Hi dear your Placenta attaches to the posterior wall of uterus which is towards your backbone but in the lower segment of uterus near the internal OS or cervix which is very risky. Possibly your doctor will suggest you complete bed rest for at least one month and if your placenta will move upward after one month then risk of your pregnancy will reduce or else you have to take bed rest throughout your pregnancy. Hope it helps.
