Low-lying placenta is a placenta that lies either touching the internal os or covering it in various lengths or just dipping into the lower segment. All these terms should be applied when a pregnancy has entered the third trimester as prior to this, the position of the placenta is insignificant. A low-lying placenta later in pregnancy needs special attention and monitoring and an abdominal delivery. As you have had a sub-chorionic bleed, please take the medication as suggested by your doctor. You should also abstain from intercourse, stress, journeys, lifting heavy things and take bed rest till the hemorrhage dissolves. Take care.
