What are the symptoms of placenta previa?
Bleeding is the primary symptom of placenta previa and occurs in the majority (70%-80%) of women with this condition. Vaginal bleeding after the 20th week of gestation is characteristic of placenta previa. Usually the bleeding is painless, but it can be associated with uterine contractions and abdominal pain. Bleeding may range in severity from light to severe.
