HI, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, the condition you have is called Placenta previa. This is a very serious condition because it sometimes leads to huge bleeding and micarriage.
WHat you will do to prevent this condition?
THe main thing is complete bed rest. It will prevent from bleeding. So, in my opinion it is better to avoid travelling and take rest., continue the medicine as prescribed.
