Understanding Bad Obstetric History (BOH):

BOH can broadly be classified as a condition in which the female has had trouble with her previous pregnancy or is having the same with the ongoing one. It is important to know what BOH might entail so that one can take preventive measures and give birth to a healthy baby.

If a woman has a history of experiencing the following cases in their previous pregnancies, they can be classified under BOH:

  1. Intrauterine demise: The mother loses the baby in the uterus (miscarriage).
  2. Repeated abortions, especially in the first or second trimester.
  3. Premature labor.
  4. Abnormalities in the fetus.
  5. Neonatal demise: This is the death of a newborn baby within a month.
  6. Severe intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) or fetal growth restriction.

If these issues occur repeatedly, you must consult your doctor and take the BOH panel test. The test may help you clarify the actual reason behind these repetitive occurrences, and then you can take the necessary preventive measures to deliver a healthy baby. The test helps doctors, too, by providing the required treatment and suggesting any lifestyle changes they think are essential for the mother.

What causes bad obstetric history?

Multiple causes lead to a female experiencing a bad obstetric history. You need to understand the cause, which helps you better understand your condition and directs you towards treatment. Some of the reasons that can cause BOH are:

  • Genetic causes: genetic reasons are one of the most common causes of BOH. Genetic reasons often lead to habitual abortions, especially during the first or second trimester.
  • Thyroid Issues: Conditions like thyroid dysfunction during pregnancy may also factor in BOH.
  • Organ Issues: Anatomical factors related to the uterus or the cervix.
  • Infections can also cause BOH.
  • Medical Conditions: Pre-eclampsia is a condition characterized by high blood pressure in women.
  • Blood conditions: acquired or inherited thrombophilia.

Knowing about the root cause can help you understand your condition better, and this can give you a lot of clarity on what kind of

Why is the BOH panel test required?

The BOH Profile Test is crucial for understanding the possible reasons behind the regular occurrence of pregnancy issues. It helps in:

  • Identifying the Underlying Cause: The test helps diagnose any genetic factor that can be responsible for recurrent pregnancy loss. It allows the healthcare provider to get an idea of the root cause of the condition.
  • Tailoring Treatments: The test reports help doctors develop personalized treatment plans based on one’s health condition.
  • Guidance: The test helps the couple guide how they can deal with these recurrent issues without getting disheartened.

What are the test parameters in the BOH Panel Test?

The BOH Panel tests for 11 parameters, and their results help identify the reason causing bad obstetric history. The tests included in the panel are:

  • Lupus Anticoagulant Test: The lupus anticoagulant test is a blood test done to diagnose if there is any blood disorder in the person.
  • TSH Test: TSH is a thyroid-stimulating hormone, and the TSH blood test helps identify any thyroid issue. If hormone levels fluctuate significantly, this indicates a thyroid issue in the body.
  • Phospholipid IgG and IgM: The antiphospholipid antibody test detects increased levels of various antibodies. The process helps detect any particular set of specimens. It is an essential process in the body's ability to regulate blood clotting.
  • Cardiolipin IgA: This test is done to help investigate inappropriate blood clot formation, to help determine the cause of recurrent miscarriage, or as part of an evaluation for antiphospholipid syndrome or sometimes other autoimmune diseases.
  • IgG and IgM: Doctors may check immunoglobulin levels to see if a person has an infection or is protected from getting an infection (is immune to it). Doctors also use immunoglobulin tests to help diagnose immunodeficiencies.
  • ANA IFA: The ANA IFA test is done to identify if there are any autoimmune disorders in the female’s body.

These tests play a crucial role in the identification of the reason behind a woman experiencing recurrent pregnancy losses.

How Do I Prepare for the BOH Panel Test?

There are no rules to follow before taking the BOH profile blood test. However, these are some basic guidelines to be followed:

  • You are not required to fast before taking the double marker test, but if your health requires it, talk to your physician about any special dietary requirements.
  • You are pregnant, so that you might be on any medication or supplement. It is important to inform your doctor about that as well. You do not need to panic in such situations; they will also tell you about the solution if they think there is an issue. 
  • It is a blood test, so avoiding any workouts or yoga before taking the test is always recommended.

The procedure for the BOH Profile Test:

This BOH profile test is like any other blood test. The sample collection takes 5–10 minutes, so the procedure is the same.

  • The phlebotomist, on arrival, ties a band around your arm.
  • They tell you to make a fist so the veins are properly visible.
  • They disinfect the area from which the blood is to be drawn.
  • Then, a thin, sterile needle is inserted into the vein to draw blood, and after the needle is removed, a bandage is put on the punctured area.
  • After drawing the blood, they put it in a vial, seal it, and label it.
  • This vial is then taken to the laboratory to be tested.

Remember that the punctured area may have a stinging sensation for two days. If the pain persists, you must consult your health provider as soon as possible and get treated.

How do I treat or manage BOH?

The treatment method adopted for BOH mostly depends on the cause of BOH. Some commonly adopted treatment procedures are:

  • Karyotype analysis: This is done in the case of habitual abortions. Karyotype analysis involves evaluating the number and structure of chromosomes to detect abnormalities. In cases of habitual abortions, the karyotype analysis is done for both the parents as well as the aborted fetus.
  • If the BOH is due to endocrine causes, doctors monitor the levels of prolactin, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), and anti-thyroid antibodies in the body.
  • In cases of infection, the TORCH test is usually done to screen for the presence of various antibodies that may be causing BOH.

Remember to consult with your doctor and take their advice on the treatment method you should follow. Doctors provide treatments and advice on all the necessary treatments to deliver a healthy baby.
