Bleeding during pregnancy!

Bleeding during pregnancy!

Vaginal spotting during pregnancy is normal to occur in the first trimester of pregnancy and may not be alarming. But bleeding during pregnancy, especially that occurs in the second and third trimester of pregnancy may be a sign of a possible complication. It’s significant to know the possible causes, and discuss with your doctor to make sure that you and your baby are healthy.

Causes of bleeding during the first trimester include:

  • Miscarriage — the impulsive loss of pregnancy before the 20th week.
  • Implantation bleeding — which occurs about 10 to 14 days after conception when fertilised egg embeds into your uterus lining.
  • Problems such as a cervical infection, inflamed or growths on the cervix.
  • Ectopic pregnancy– the fertilized embryo implants outside of the uterus, it can cause the fallopian tube to burst.
  • Molar pregnancy — in which an abnormal mass, not baby, forms within the uterus after fertilization

Causes of bleeding during second and the third trimester include:

  • Intrauterine fetal death
  • Placental abruption
  • Cervical cancer
  • Incompetent cervix — Premature opening of the cervix
  • Preterm labor — by contractions, dull backache or pelvic pressure.

It is normal to have bleeding near the end of pregnancy, usually a sign that labor is starting. The discharge could be pink or bloody and is also known as the bloody show.

Usually the bleeding goes away in few hours, and should not be worried about. But if it continues for longer than few hours and increases in intensity, it is probably a reason to worry. Observe changes in your body when bleeding such as tummy cramps, severe abdomen pain, and consult your doctor immediately.
