OB-GYN Emergency

An OB-GYN emergency refers to a set of issues that demand the immediate attention of a licensed obstetrician and gynecologist. Most women only require emergency assistance for problems related to vaginal infections or injuries, or an emergency visit might be needed by patients who are pregnant and are experiencing health complications related to it. Any unexpected change or discomfort encountered in the first trimester, such as extreme nausea, dehydration, excessive bleeding, tiredness, spotting or severe morning sickness, can likely be resolved in an emergency visit.

 

In the later stages of the pregnancy, a patient might develop preeclampsia. An emergency visit is recommended if you notice rapid swelling in the legs, hands or face. Additionally, head to an emergency room for a decrease in fetal activity, severe headaches, premature contractions and rupture of membranes.

 

It is also advised that you head for an emergency visit if you are experiencing extreme discomfort due to symptoms of vaginal bleeding or vaginal/urinary infections. Symptoms of infection include itching and irritation of vagina and vulva, redness and swelling of the vulva, vaginal rash, pain with urination, frequent urination, fever, or unusual vaginal discharge. Treatment differs from case to case and is dependent upon the recommendation of the practitioner.

Obstetric emergencies

Pregnancy can sometimes lead to life-threatening emergencies for a mother and her baby; these are referred to as “obstetric emergencies.” These emergencies are accompanied by typical symptoms such as heavy bleeding, stomach cramps, severe vomiting, dizziness, lower back pain, a rapid increase in blood pressure, blurry vision and headaches, fever, sudden and significant swelling of hands, face, and feet, decrease in baby’s movements, intense contractions before 37 weeks of pregnancy, or blackouts. Emergencies during pregnancy need to be addressed immediately.

What kind of obstetric emergencies happen during pregnancy?

Some of the obstetric emergencies that can occur during pregnancy include:

  1. Miscarriage: This is the loss of a baby before 20 weeks of pregnancy.
  2. Ectopic pregnancy: This is a result of a fertilized egg entering one of the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus, causing loss of the tube or sometimes, pain and bleeding.
  3. Placental abruption: This is the separation of the placenta from the uterus before the birth of the baby, causing pain, contractions and bleeding.
  4. Preeclampsia: This is pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, which causes the body to swell.
  5. Premature rupture of membrane (PROM): This happens when the bag of amniotic fluid breaks before 37 weeks of pregnancy.

What types of obstetric emergencies happen during labor?

Some of the obstetric emergencies that can happen during labor are:

  1. Uterus inversion: If a portion of the placenta remains attached to the uterus during labor, it pulls the uterus out with it.
  2. Shoulder dystocia: If the baby’s shoulder gets stuck in the birth canal, the baby might start to lose oxygen.
  3. Rupture of the uterus: The uterus might tear during labor, causing heavy bleeding.  
  4. Prolapsed umbilical cord: The umbilical cord is compressed, which results in fetus struggling to receive oxygen. This can lead to brain damage or even death of the baby if not addressed immediately.


You can read more about obstetric emergencies on the BetterHealth Channel website.

Common questions and answers about OB-GYN emergencies

When should I go for an OB-GYN emergency visit?

If you’re experiencing extreme discomfort, injury or a condition that would require a physician’s assistance, go for an OB-GYN emergency visit.

 

Should I be concerned about vaginal discharge, itching or burning?

Vaginal infection is common among women. Generally, over-the-counter medications can help resolve the symptoms, however, if the situation persists and worsens over time, it is recommended that you either book an appointment with an OB-GYN near you or go for an emergency visit.

 

Where can I find doctors for an OB-GYN emergency visit near me?

On Zocdoc, you can book appointments with top-rated providers who take your insurance. It’s always simple, secure and free.

 

What should I expect during an OB-GYN emergency visit?

The type of emergency treatment will depend on your condition. There may be minimal time to prepare for such visits, however carrying any current medications as well as any recent reports or test results helps the doctor assess the situation efficiently. The recovery period also varies based on the condition and the treatment you receive.

 

How much does an OB-GYN emergency visit cost?

Costs may vary depending on the kind of treatment you might require for your emergency condition. The prices might also vary based on your location, as well as your insurance provider.
