Question: What are the effects of low lying placenta during 22week?
Answer: Hello dear,. 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.
doctor will carefully slip a specially shaped device into your vagina to view your uterus. This shouldn't cause you any discomfort, and is a safe procedure. If the placenta is just covering or overlapping your cervix, a transvaginal scanlater in your pregnancy will show if it has moved.
you can find some spotting also....
Avoid heavy lifting and anything which puts pressure on your pelvic....
