Bleeding during Pregnancy
This may sound horrifying for the Preggies.
But in some cases these do occur.
Yes….bleeding during Pregnancy may not only indicate the possibility of Miscarrige, but also various other reasons.
There are many examples of successful delivering of the baby, in spite of the bleeding during pregnancy.
This may occur during the first Trimester of the Pregnancy.
The reason for this may be,
The body may find it difficult to get adjusted with the pregnancy hormones and result in the bleeding till 4 weeks of pregnancy. Till this time, the periods may also occur as usual.
Other common causes are vaginal infections, implantation bleeding and cervical erosion which is the result of the egg firmly settling itself in your womb and your cervix starting to soften.
Another main reason may be Ectopic Pregnancy
This is the condition in which the womb will be formed outside the Uterus ie., in the fallopian tubes.
In this condition, it becomes the emergency condition to remove the womb to avoid fatality.
Bleeding may also occur in the later pregnancy.
The reasons may be as follows:
Cervix ectropian : During this, there may be a little change in the Cervix position and hence there may be Spotting or little bleeding after an intercourse.
Placenta abruption : In this case, it may occur after 22 weeks of pregnancy. Here, the Placenta may detach from the Womb. It may happen, if the water inside the womb gets dried up. You may or may not have pain after bleeding. In this case, you may need emergency delivery.
Placenta Praevia : In this case, the Placenta may come down and block the way of the Cervix. The doctors will be checking through scan whether the Placenta goes to the upper side of the womb. If it doesn’t go, she may prefer only C-section as the way for the child seem to be blocked.
Show: This is the final stage, in which a mucus membrane along with bleeding comes out, which indicates that the baby is preparing itself to come out of the Uterus.
Mis carriage : Though most of the miscarriages happen only during the first trimester, sometimes, in rare cases, it may occur even after 30 weeks.
Finally, during your pregnancy, whenever you find either a slight Spotting or profuse Bleeding, you should immediately contact your gynaecologist and take emergency care.
There are also cases, in which the ladies have delivered healthy babies even after getting their regular periods all throught their Pregnancy of 9 months.
The doctors may advice you accordingly , whether not to worry for the bleeding occurred. Or to be in bed rest for the rest of your pregnancy. Or to stay in the Hospital itself until your delivery.
Everything depends on the nature of the bleeding.
