Symptoms of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome

Reading time: 1 min

Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome can develop without the pregnant woman presenting any symptoms. When they do manifest, the most common ones are:

Distensión abdominal

Abdominal distension. There is an increase in abdominal volume at a notably quicker rate than during a normal pregnancy as it occurs in just a few days, plus it is often painful due to abdominal pressure.

contracciones, embarazo

Contractions. The increased amount of amniotic fluid in the recipient foetus’ sac can induce contractions, which are characterised by a feeling of abdominal pressure and hardening of the lower abdomen.
