Different types of retained placenta

Retained placenta are of three types:

  1. Placenta Adherens: It is the most common type and occurs when the uterus fails to contract enough to expel placenta.
  2. Trapped Placenta: It occurs when placenta detaches from the uterus but doesn’t leave the body, sometimes the cervix remains closed after birth of the baby.
  3. Placenta Accreta: It causes the placenta to attach to the muscular layer of the uterine wall rather than the uterine lining which makes delivery more difficult and causes severe bleeding.

Question: In how much time does the body expel placenta during delivery?
