Bleeding when pregnant does not always mean miscarriage
My wife is 32 and is currently pregnant with our second baby. During the long ultrasound period, we were told that my wife has blood in her uterus, next to the placenta. She has had history of early blood clots even in the earlier pregnancy. I want to know if this is a serious issue. The doctor says that the blood will disappear and we can monitor with ultrasound regularly. But I am worried.
Answer: Bleeding is not uncommon in the early stages of pregnancy. It is called subchorionic bleed. Some women may experience spotting / brown discharge or light bleeding.
It does not always lead to miscarriage. Please follow the advice of your obstetrician meticulously.
I am 24-years-old female. I am had periods three times in March. After being sexually active for about two months, I took a pill when I was on my periods in the beginning of the month. After a week I experienced four days mensuration and again a week after that I experienced three days. I want to know if this is normal after taking a pill. Also, I experienced excruciating pain in my abdomen after my third period was over just three days ago. What can this be? What’s the remedy?
Answer: 3 periods in a month is not normal unless you have been on and off hormonal tablets erratically. It would be ideal to see a Gynaecologist and get an ultrasound scan of your pelvis for correct assessment.
I am 32-years old. My menstrual cycle just ended on Saturday. Since then I have been experiencing a small amount of pinkish colour discharge. It seems like it’s only there when I wake up in the morning and go to the washroom. Nothing during the day. Is this something to worry about? I have not been pregnant.
Answer: It is not uncommon to have some discharge or spotting at the tail end of a period and sometimes prior to the start of a period. If it is persistent do go and consult a Gynaecologist.
