Are you pregnant but notice spotting or bleeding? Here is what you need to know.

About

The discharge of blood from the vagina during pregnancy can happen anytime during the term but mostly occurs in the first trimester.

PV Bleeding is seen in about 15% - 25% of the women during the first trimester of pregnancy. [1]

Bleeding during the first trimester is a common issue faced by many women.

- The amount of spotting or bleeding needs to be monitored.
- It definitely needs medical attention.
- The reason is not self-diagnosable.

The reasons for per vaginal bleeding during early pregnancy can be many. It can be implantation bleeding, changes in the cervix, ectopic or molar pregnancy, infection, having sex or even a miscarriage. When the bleeding isn’t heavy or serious the gynecologist usually asks the patient to take rest and it clears in a few weeks time. Heavy bleeding, on the other hand, dealt with surgical methods and require care in a hospital.

Symptoms:

Medically diagnosable
A pregnant woman notices blood from the vagina in the form of spotting or bleeding during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. A gynecologist typically with the help of ultrasound can decipher the cause.

People may experience
Spotting - Small drops of blood seen occasionally
Bleeding- Heavy flow that needs a sanitary pad
Pain or Cramping- Can be experienced in case of a miscarriage

Treatment

Medical Care: Usually PV bleeding during the first trimester isn’t cause for concern. But it is best to get a medical opinion as soon as it is noticed. A gynecologist, in common cases, would suggest bed rest. When the bleeding is heavy with the discharge of tissue it could be a case of miscarriage that will require the patient to be admitted in the hospital.

Specialists: In most cases, the bleeding is due to implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus or due to cervical changes which can be easily confirmed with a scan. The multi-faceted expertise at mfine is the answer to all your medical problems. Become a part of mfine and help us help you.
