Bleeding In Early Pregnancy - Can It Be A Miscarriage?

MS - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Fellowship in Fetal Medicine
Gynaecologist, Amritsar
Bleeding In Early Pregnancy - Can It Be A Miscarriage?

Numerous ladies encounter some bleeding in early pregnancy. Around one in four perceived pregnancies end in an unnatural miscarriage. Most are brought about by irregularities in the genes. Continuously tell your specialist in case you have vaginal bleeding when you are pregnant. Bleeding with pain can likewise be an indication of an ectopic pregnancy. However, it is to be taken seriously and needs dire therapeutic care. Losing a pregnancy can be hard for both the partners. In any case, most couples that encounter this will go ahead to have an effective pregnancy next time. Here are a few reasons why bleeding takes place in early pregnancy:

  1. Numerous women may have a small amount of bleeding during their missed period. Sometimes, this may also be called an implantation bleed. It happens when the prepared egg inserts itself in the mass of your womb (uterus). In such cases, it is considered harmless.
  2. The most widely recognised reason for bleeding is an early premature delivery. Miscarriage is the loss of a pregnancy at any time until the twenty- fourth week. A miscarriage after this time is known as a stillbirth.
  3. A less normal reason for bleeding during pregnancy is an ectopic pregnancy. This is a pregnancy that happens outside the womb. It happens in about one in every hundred pregnancies.
  4. Smoking increases your chances of bleeding and miscarriage.
  5. Drinking a lot of liquor can also cause the same. Drinking four units of liquor a week (one unit is a large portion of a half quart) can increase the risk of a miscarriage to four times.
  6. Using recreational medications can lead to bleeding.
  7. Have had fertility issues in the past or having taken a long time to conceive may also create such a condition.
  8. Having any complications with womb (uterus) can cause bleeding.
  9. Have certain medical conditions (for instance, systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid disorder) may also cause the same.
  10. Have diabetes that is not controllable can lead to bleeding at this time.
  11. Have specific infections like listeria and German measles (rubella) may cause bleeding during pregnancy.

You need to report any bleeding in pregnancy to your specialist. It is essential to get the right conclusion, as unsuccessful labour is not by any means the only aim of vaginal bleeding. In case that you are bleeding intensely or have serious stomach pain when you are pregnant, call an ambulance immediately.

Women with bleeding in early pregnancy need to see an obstetrician. It is important to have an ultrasound check. This is normally done by inserting a little probe inside the vagina. This helps figure out if the bleeding is happening due to:

  1. A possible miscarriage
  2. A premature delivery (no pulse is seen).
  3. Some other reason for bleeding, (for example, an ectopic pregnancy)
  4. In case that it is unclear from your ultrasound check whether the pregnancy is sound or not, then you might need to go for a repeat scan in two weeks.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Did You Know The Risk Of Stroke Is Higher In Young Pregnant Woman?

Did You Know The Risk Of Stroke Is Higher In Young Pregnant Woman?

Older women usually face more complications when it comes to pregnancy when compared with younger women. There are other genetic and environmental factors apart from age which may also lead to a host of complications, in many cases. However, recent studies show that younger women are twice as likely to get strokes during pregnancy when compared with older women. Women between 16 to 35 years of age get more strokes during pregnancy than older women. This usually happens during and after the pregnancy, and there are many reasons for the same, many of which are still under research and medical examination.

While the reason for such strokes occurring is unknown, doctors suggest that pre-eclampsia is one of the reasons. It usually occurs because of high blood pressure during pregnancy. The third trimester or the post-partum stage is when the risk of these strokes increases. According to the latest study, the risk of stroke was two times higher in women between 16 and 24 years of age, whereas in women between 25 and 34, there was a 60% chance. In women above 35 years of age, the risk was comparatively minimal.

There are many kinds of complications that may occur during pregnancy if the pregnant lady is under stress or does not take care of her body in a proper manner. Pregnancy might boost the risk of strokes in younger women because of the following reasons:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Diabetes
  3. Chances of blood clot formation increase during pregnancy are high. This is so that women do not bleed excessively while they deliver. Therefore, there is a major shift in blood flow during or right after delivery. This can cause a stroke. In younger women, this seems to be more common.
  4. More hormonal changes in younger women increase the chances of a stroke.
  5. Older women are healthier overall than younger women.
  6. Many of the younger women these days go through a number of hormonal problems like polycystic ovary disorder (PCOD) because of which they face a lot of complications and weakness.
  7. Hereditary weakness
  8. Lesser haemoglobin levels compared to older women
  9. Difference in the daily diet

Some of the stroke symptoms include weakness, dull face, weakness in the body, especially arms and legs, severe headaches and difficulty in speaking. Therefore, pregnant women and those around them need to understand the stroke signs and symptoms so that when required, they could take the necessary measures if required. Moreover, doctors should be aware of the fact that younger women are at a higher risk for strokes than older women, particularly if they have pre-eclampsia. They should, therefore, be watched more carefully, especially the weeks during and after they are supposed to give birth.

Delivery Pain - Tips That Can Help You Manage It!

Delivery Pain - Tips That Can Help You Manage It!

On a pain scale of 1 to 10, delivery pain is rated as 11. It is one of the most severe forms of pain, and for women, it is almost like a second birth after coming out from delivery. With more and more advancements, attempts are being made to ensure this discomfort is managed better and the woman has a more relaxed experience through the delivery.

It is important to identify a couple of factors when going into delivery  say for example who will be there with you, where the delivery will happen, how to manage the mind and body, and if there is anything else required for a smooth delivery. Having open discussions with the doctor, close family and friends will help you prepare for it.

Read on to know some pointers.

  1. People around you: Be careful about who is around you during the crucial hours. On one hand, ensure you have your midwives, doctors and nurses around you, who are knowledgeable and know how to handle the situation, if there is a crisis. On the other hand, have only close relatives and family members who are loving and supportive.
  2. Read up on labor: With so much information available both online and offline, read up from reliable sources and know what to expect during labor. While there may be an information overload, the overall info should be good to go and keep you updated.
  3. Talk about it: Whether it is the anesthesia, the needles, the instruments, blood, or injections, talk about your fears. Whether it is the doctor or your close family member, talk out your fears and see them disappear.
  4. Be positive: Surround yourself with positive images, positive people and positive thoughts. Soothing music is another must-have in your surroundings.
  5. Be active and occupied: For many women, keeping themselves occupied does not give time to worry about the pain. Constantly being on the move and not being confined to the home also reduces chances of pain.
  6. Try yoga: With rhythmic breathing and mild yoga, there are higher chances that you will be better able to manage the labor pains. Talk to your doctor as to what you can safely do. The swaying, squatting, and bending required by yoga does a lot of good to your overall body. Women who do some form of exercise and yoga in particular have a higher chance of vaginal delivery and are able to manage pain better.
  7. Warm bathing/showers: A warm bath soothes the lower back and the abdomen and can help in speeding up labor, as it helps in contractions.
  8. Involve your partner: The gentle touches and stroking will reassure you and ensure you are better able to sail through delivery.

Pre-term Labour - Factors That Can Increase Your Risk!

Pre-term Labour - Factors That Can Increase Your Risk!

Pre-term labour, also known as premature labour, is when the body starts getting ready for pregnancy earlier than it is supposed to. The labour starts more than three weeks before the due date is. It can lead to an early birth. However, nowadays, the doctors can do a lot to delay the birth and stop a premature birth from happening.

Here are a few things that can increase your risk of a premature labour:

  1. Smoking
  2. Being over or underweight
  3. Bad prenatal care
  4. Alcohol abuse or using drugs while pregnant
  5. Having bad health conditions like hypertension, diabetes
  6. Being pregnant with twins or multiple babies

The symptoms of a premature labour include:

  1. A backache, usually in the lower back.
  2. Contractions with ten-minute intervals
  3. Cramping in the lower abdomen like during periods
  4. Leaking of fluid from the vagina
  5. Feeling nauseous, diarrhoea and flu-like symptoms
  6. Increased vaginal discharge
  7. Extreme vaginal bleeding

There are a few ways with which you can check or make sure whether you will be having an early labour or not. These are:

  1. Put your fingers on your abdomen
  2. If you feel that your uterus is tightening and relaxing and then tightening again, it is likely that you might be having contractions. You should time your contractions. Write the timings down when each contraction starts.
  3. Stand up on your feet and change your positions. Try to relax and stop the contractions.
  4. Drink two to three glasses of water
  5. Call your doctor immediately if you continue having contractions every ten minutes.

Sometimes women have a harmless false labour. It is called the Braxton hicks contractions. However, these are not a part of the labour. In case you have been diagnosed with pre-term labour, you will need treatment. These usually include:

  1. IV fluids
  2. Medicines to stop the labour and relax the uterus
  3. Antibiotics
  4. Medicines to speed up the growth of the baby’s lungs
  5. Being admitted to the hospital

In case you are unable to stop your labour, the doctor will get ready to deliver the baby. The baby is then taken care of, outside in incubators and then released once it is fully grown and healthy. If a baby is premature and is born early, most of them do well as they keep growing old. However, they do have a higher risk of problems. These might include autism, cerebral palsy, lung problems, vision and hearing loss, and intellectual disabilities. The earlier a child is born; it is more likely that they will face health problems. Therefore, it is very important that the mother, as well as the child, is taken very good care of before and after a pre-term labour or birth. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, What will be the last possible age for pregnancy and is there any chance of pregnancy after the age of 36? If yes, how many times she can get pregnant approximately? Please help!

Hi, What will be the last possible age for pregnancy and is there any chance of pregnancy after the age of 36? If yes...
There is no age bar as such, thanks to IVF. However the rate of fertility gradually declines in the late 30s. Prenatal screening should however be a bigger concern once pregnant.

Hi, Now I am 25 week pregnant. I went u/s scan in that placenta is breech presentation. If the placenta is like that ...
Hi lybrate-user, breech presentation means that your baby's bottom is on the lower side and the head in in the upper part of your uterus. Basically your baby is in an upside down position from normal. It is important only if this is your first pregnancy. Then chances of c-section increase as time of delivery. However, since you are only 25 weeks at the moment, you still have a long way to go, many times babies turn by then.
