Subchorionic Hematoma: Everything You Need to Know

About

A common sonogram abnormality spotted due to bleeding of the outer fetal membrane

About 1 percent (1%) of all pregnancies have a subchorionic bleed.[1]

- Treatable by a medical professional
- Requires a medical diagnosis
- Lab tests or imaging often required
- Short-term: resolves within days

A subchorionic hematoma is also known as subchorionic bleeding, which can be caused due to bleeding in the chorion. It is the outer layer that covers the embryo, which develops into the fetus. The bleeding occurs when the placenta detaches from its original site. Bleeding can be small, moderate, or large in amount and is common in the first trimester. Most subchorionic bleeds resolve on its own and don’t necessarily affect a healthy experience. If not diagnosed earlier, a larger hematoma can sometimes lead to a miscarriage.

Ages affected: Pregnant women of any age group

Symptoms

Self-diagnosable:
Symptoms include bleeding and spotting during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester.

People may experience:
Bleeding: General spotting that is usually detected in a sonogram
Also common: Mild cramping in some cases

Treatment

Self-care: Going for routine checkups and sonograms can help diagnose the spotting at an early stage. Taking proper bed rest and avoiding sex till the bleeding stops is advisable.

Medication: There is no particular medication as the bleeding usually stops on its own.

Specialists: For medical suggestions, consult an OBGYN doctor. At mfine, we recommend personalized healthcare treatments on the basis of one’s overall medical history.
