The medical term ‘spina bifida’ or spinal bifida refers to a congenital defect in the spine. In simpler terms, spina bifida is a defect in the neural tube. Based on the severity of this disease, spina bifida can be divided into three different types:
The symptoms of spina bifida vary depending on each of these three types. Let's take a closer look at its symptoms here:
Myelomeningocele is the most severe form of spina bifida. In this type of neural defect, spinal canal of the baby remains open in the middle or lower back along a few vertebrae. Due to this opening, a sac is formed at the back of the baby at birth, which exposes the baby to several life-threatening infections.
Some of the common symptoms of this type of spina bifida are:
- Presence of uneven hips
- Deformed feet
- Curved spine or scoliosis
- Bladder and bowel problems
- Muscle weakness
- Paralyzed leg muscles.
Physical deformities from moderate to severe levels are also very common in this type of spina bifida.
Meningocele is a ratherrare form of spinal bifida in which a sack of fluid stays in open at the back of the baby. Here the protective membranes that usually stay around the spinal cord push out through the vertebrae’s opening. Though this sack contains no part of the spinal cord, it may cause minor disabilities.
Some common symptoms of this kind of spina bifida are:
- Membranes forming a visible sack on the back at birth
- Presence of a small opening in the baby's back
The good news is that this sack can be removed through surgery without hampering the normal development of the spinal cord.
Spina bifida occulta is the mildest form of spina bifida, which, in majority of the cases, often stays hidden as its symptoms are rarely visible. As it doesn’t even cause any form of disabilities, it generally goes unnoticed. It doesn’t cause any damages to the nerves or the spinal cord.
Some common symptoms of occulta are:
- Presence of a gap between the vertebrae
- An area on the back formed with extra fat
- Acluster or small group of hair on the back
- A dimple or birthmark on the back.
In this kind of spina bifida, neither any sack of fluid is formed, nor are there any visible opening in the back. Sometimes, people who have spina bifida are not aware of it due to its minimal symptoms.
Spina bifida usually affects a child before birth, when the brain or the cord or the protective covering over them fails to develop completely. Knowing about the symptoms can be one of the best ways to identify and diagnose this disease and opt for proper treatment solutions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

Nearly 10 percent of the pregnancies have a chance to fail. This is regardless of the fact whether they are induced by IVF or naturally conceived. Numerous reasons do exist for the unsuccessful pregnancies. Ectopic pregnancy is one of the reasons why a pregnancy does not last until full term. Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition. With all these possibilities, a pregnancy that is IVF induced has to be watched continuously. If you have gone through IVF for pregnancy, you know how many years were behind it.
After multiple treatment options and years of waiting, your ray of hope is IVF. With the odds of the embryo forming in the laboratory and the difficulties in getting it attached to your womb, a woman undergoing IVF has too many worries from day one. Fortunately, your gynecologist trusts in monitoring the IVF pregnancy from the very first step.
Complications of IVF pregnancy: A pregnancy through IVF may need care for various reasons. The mother may be over 35 years of age, too many miscarriages, and several other reasons. When monitoring is consistent, the progress of the pregnancy is known. It will not be too late for any action throughout the period. In many cases, the couples’ only hope to bear a child is through IVF. They cannot afford to take chances when they have got pregnant through IVF. The sensitive doctor will also be focused on the fact that his or her patient gets the optimum care throughout the precious pregnancy period. When a woman in 40’s or above gets pregnant, the pregnancy is delicate, and it is after too much of struggle. In such cases, consistent monitoring is the need of the hour.
What makes IVF pregnancies convoluted?
Apart from the age factor, there is one more concern that makes it important to monitor the pregnancy continuously. The incidence of miscarriage in pregnancies that are not natural is higher. The spontaneous pregnancies are natural, and the body is well prepared. Any sort of artificial reproductive technique (ART) means that one has to prepare the body externally. Nothing can be equal to natural and hence the rate of a miscarriage is higher. Chances of twins are higher when it comes to IVF. In natural pregnancies, one in 80 pregnancies results in twins. In case of IVF, 1 in 5 women can get pregnant with twins. Coupled with the other complications, bearing twins adds to the pressure. A doctor needs to be assured if everything would be smooth enough to continue the 3rd trimester. In case if something has to be done to ensure the children in the womb are safe even before 35 weeks, only continuous monitoring would suggest the best way.
IVF pregnancies also have the higher chances of bleeding in the first trimester, placenta previa, preterm labor, PIH, and IUGR. A C-section is how most of the women who have gone for IVF give birth. Extra vigilance is not an overrated thing in IVF pregnancies but the demand. This also helps in ruling out any type of abnormalities. If you are pregnant through IVF, then do not fret if you have to visit your doctor and scan centers often. This helps you to stay pregnant full term and carry your dream baby in your arms. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
