Placenta Previa

Sex, exercise and vaginal exams will be off-limits. Sitting and standing will be allowed when needed. Other prohibitions will be given out by your doctor as it befits your situation.

Finally, remember whatever the treatment plan, it is very important to be obedient. If not, there can be very serious complications such as premature births. In cases such as these, prenatal visits are highly important for early detection.
