Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

In the case of twin pregnancy with a different placenta, the packet of amniotic fluid is also different or there is only one packet on which both babies are living?

Answered by Dr. Neha Rathod

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Twin pregnancy is of four types. One with two amniotic sacs and two placentae which is known as a diamniotic dichorionic twin. If there is only one sac and one placenta it is called monochorionic monoamniotic twin. If there are just one sac and two placentae, it is monoamniotic dichorionic. If there are two sac and one placenta it is called dichorionic monoamniotic twin. However, if you have a doubt then get back to me.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
