hello..
Placenta previa can be classified as three different types-complete placenta previa, partial placenta previa, and marginal placenta previa. If you have been diagnosed with complete placenta previa, then the placenta is actually blocking the entire cervix. Partial placenta previa means that the placenta is only minimally blocking the cervix. And in cases of marginal placenta previa, the placenta isn't blocking the cervix at all, but it is close enough to be considered a potential pregnancy complication and may still cause bleeding. A fourth type, low lying placenta, just means the placenta is unusually low in the uterus but not touching the cervix edge,it is not actually placenta previa.

again the risks to the baby depends on type of placenta whether it is pl.previa or low lying..as low lying placenta will have very low risk rate than pla.previa and if u r doing well no bleeding or spotting then no need to worry..just make sure not to do strenous work or lifting heavy objects or intercoarse, using stairs, doing stressfull household chores..take bed rest be calm..and do whateva ur doc ll advice..

i m doing job. its my 7th month started, no bleeding or spotting has been happen in till date so its mean every thing is ok ?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

yes namrata...
then u r dng gud,but plz take care of not doing strenous work..long standing walking etc etc...soon after completing 7th month take leave and take rest and talk to ur doc abt due date of delivery n plan c-sec...it is safe in this case...normal delivery is great mess and blood loss ll be more..so avoid it..
