Wrong Information – pPROM


Being on bed rest and having lots of extra time means I spend a lot of time on the computer. Much of my time is spent doing research on pre-term premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) It is very annoying to read inaccurate information. I do have to say this incorrect info is coming from message boards. But there are people out there that rely on the web to give them information. One of the biggest incorrect things I come across is that most people assume that once your water breaks you must deliver in 24 hours. That is not always the case. Especially in cases of PPROM. If the woman is not in labor and not showing signs of infections the doctors try to keep you pregnant as long as possible. IV antibiotics are given and the mom and baby are monitored for signs of problems. I have read about pregnancies being carried to term with PPROM. So if you are doing research on PPROM be careful about the information you read – especially on message boards!!!
