    Leak in placenta or clot
    krystalshantel posted:
    The doctor told me yesterday that i may have a leak in the placenta or a clot, i just had a cerclage done yesterday also. She says that i need to be resting a lot more than normal and don't do any activities. I'm not really sure what it means to have a leak in the placenta and what could happen. Could someone help me?

    I know you posted 4 weeks ago so you may have gotten an all clear. I have had the same diagnoses. I have been put on low activity to include no sex for several weeks. All this means is that you may be at a higher risk for miscarriage. Your body may just heal up on it's own, which is the hope. You may just absorb the clot or it may pass through you vaginally. Also, depending on where the clot or leak is you may be in better shape. You want it near the side or bottom of your uterus. Just take care of yourself and take it easy, that is the best thing you can do for yourself. If you start to spot call your doctor. Good luck to you.
