Urologist Questions Health Problems In Pregnancy

What is the reason for splenomegaly during pregnancy?

I am a 34-year-old woman in the second trimester of my pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy with the first one being absolutely normal. I developed a pain around my uterus last week. The tests showed a urine infection, however, the USG report showed splenomegaly. What does splenomegaly really mean and how could it affect my pregnancy?

Splenomegaly, regardless of its etiology, may be an issue during pregnancy, representing risks for both the mother and the child. We lack evidence regarding the best obstetric approach for pregnant patients with splenomegaly
Suggest follow up with Doctor for further evaluation.
Splenomegaly means an enlarged spleen, but out of my ballpark, check with your OB, sorry.
