Loss of Amniotic Fluid

Index

In order for the embryo to develop with tranquility and security, the body itself has its natural devices to accompany the growth step by step, and the amniotic fluid is part of these devices. Amniotic fluid is the fluid found inside the bag that is located inside the uterus and that has several important functions to protect the baby, so the loss of amniotic fluid can pose great risks to the health of the baby.

The amniotic fluid has the role of protecting the baby from shocks and strong impacts , controlling the appropriate temperature inside the uterus and preventing the cord from being compressed. In addition to being the main aid in the development and formation of the digestive and respiratory system. The loss of amniotic fluid is called oligohydramnios is a fact considered not very common during the gestational phase, however it occurs in about 8% of pregnant women at some point in the pregnancy.

As the pregnancy progresses, the tendency of the amniotic fluid is to increase more and more, reaching around 1 liter of fluid inside the uterus in the 36th week and starting to reduce until the day of the baby’s birth. But if you start to reduce the fluid in the end, why is the loss of amniotic fluid worrying? The loss of it before the third trimester can affect the correct development of the lungs and other organs and, therefore, the obstetrician must control this amount to ensure the maturation of the organs until he is really ready to be born.

It is through ultrasound exams that it is possible for a specialist to check and record the amount of amniotic fluid in the bag and if there is a risk for the baby, which in turn will make the report to be referred for evaluation by the obstetrician. In some cases, when the doctor observes the drop in fluid in the third trimester, he may choose to have the baby born so that he can finish developing outside. In other cases, absolute rest and the ingestion of plenty of fluids may be recommended in order to replace the amount needed to hold as much as possible inside the uterus. In some cases, hospitalization of the pregnant woman may be requested for follow-up, in others, rest can be done directly from home.

A tip for pregnant women: do you want to improve the pleasure of sex during the gestational phase? Use water-based lubricating gels that play the role of cervical mucus and still control vaginal pH, reducing the chances of proliferation of fungi and bacteria responsible for infections. Famivita has developed the perfect lubricant for pregnant women and pregnant women, the FamiGel . You can buy it here in our online store.

What Are the Causes of Amniotic Fluid Loss?

The causes of amniotic fluid loss are not well understood by medicine, but they are linked to some complications during pregnancy, such as genital infectious conditions . Therefore, in the presence of different symptoms such as burning sensation when urinating, the doctor should be informed immediately for evaluation and exams to verify the problem.

There are other factors that result in the loss of amniotic fluid, such as problems in the placenta which, if its functions are altered, may not produce enough blood and nutrients for the baby which results in decreased urine production which directly affects the amount of amniotic fluid In the purse. Another cause that is pointed out as the main and “most common” is the partial rupture of the bag where, through a small hole, the liquid begins to leak through the vagina, reducing the amount quickly.

Abnormalities in the baby like kidney malfunction is also a reason for the loss of amniotic fluid. It is worth noting that drugs to control high blood pressure can affect the proper functioning of the baby’s kidneys by decreasing the amount of fluid because it cannot eliminate urine, in addition to affecting the direct production of fluid. The maternal dehydration can also affect the production of liquid, so the fluid intake is always advised to keep the mother’s health, pregnancy and consequently the baby.
