The risk of amniotic liquid leaking is higher than normal within the next 48 hours after the amniocentesis tests, for women with history of premature rupture of the membranes or at the notice of unidentifiable moisture.
The feeling of amniotic fluid loss is common during pregnancy, which can be an important cause of stress.
Barza Amniotest is simple to use and interpret, you get the result right away by examining the indicator strip. It can also be used at home and allows continuous monitoring for 12 hours, including intermittent amniotic fluid loss.
Barza Amniotest changes color when it comes in contact with liquids that have a pH value of 6.5 or more units. PH levels of amniotic fluid are greater than 6.5.
Barza Amniotest is recommended for screening for high-risk or normal pregnancies. Amniotic fluid fluid leaks increase the risk of infections for both the mother and the fetus and their early detection can help in :
Preventing complications or premature birth;
Identifying possible membrane rupture, especially after amniocentesis;
Confirm that your water has broken so you can get to the hospital in time for a safe birth.
How to use?
Take the Barza Amniotest absorbant pad out of its packaging.
Fix the absorbent pad on the slip.
Wear the test pad as you would a normal pad, until you feel moisture (do not exceed 12 hours of wearing). Note: use the absorbent pad when sitting, standing or walking. DO NOT use the absorbent pad when you are lying down.
When you feel a drain, remove the absorbent pad and wait 10 minutes, then check if there is a change in color to the yellow background of the pad. Also, when replacing it with a new absorbent pad, check if there is any change in color.
How to interpret the result?
Possible color changes
If the absorbent pad did not change color (remained yellow or became yellow again after 15 minutes), vaginal moisture was probably not caused by amniotic fluid. If the vaginal discharge continues, apply a new absorbent pad and repeat the test, then consult your doctor.
Possible color changes
If there is a change in color in blue or green (regardless of intensity), of any size, shape or location, the liquid is probably amniotic fluid.
Color change may appear blurred and may be more intense along one side of the yellow band margins. In either of these cases, consult your doctor or report to the hospital without delay.
