There are few more troubling things to do during pregnancy blood. However, there is no need to panic. There are many reasons for bleeding during pregnancy and not all of them are related to the pregnancy itself. According to the American Pregnancy Association, 20 to 30% of women experience some type of bleeding in early pregnancy. 50% develop healthy pregnancies.
Some women drops of blood bouncing pink or brown when the fertilized egg implants in the wall uterine, and usually, this happens around 6-12 days after conception. This is called implantation bleeding. Occurs because when the egg implants into the uterus, it can break some vessels causing blood mother secretion of small amounts of blood. When this happens, the bleeding can last from a few hours to a few days.
During pregnancy, the blood supply to the cervix is increased, which is more sensitive and more prone to bleed. You may notice blood stains due to irritation of the cervix after performing a Pap test, an internal vaginal examination or after intercourse. The bleeding from this cause is not usually something to worry about as long as there is light and is accompanied by cramps.
Bleeding and subchorionic hematoma
Sometimes early in pregnancy, blood clots or blood accumulate in the outer membrane of the fetus (“corium”), located right next to the developing placenta. This may cause bleeding, sometimes very intense. Normally, blood clots are reabsorbed or harmless. However, if the bleeding or clots are large enough, can cause the placenta to break the wall uterus, causing pregnancy loss. There is no standard treatment for bruises subcoriales: Some doctors advise her to rest and refrain from having sex, and some are prescribed blood thinners such as Lovenox or Heparin. According to Justmommies.com, the 97-99% of women with a subchorionic hemorrhage get to have healthy pregnancies, but have higher risk of placental abruption later in pregnancy.
Bleeding may also be a sign of an impending miscarriage, especially at first. If a woman is bleeding bright red and bouncing experience cramping or tissues, there is a good chance that you are experiencing or about to experience a pregnancy loss. The American Pregnancy Association reports that 15 to 20% of all pregnancies end in loss, and most occur during the first 12 weeks. Most miscarriages occur because there was some problem with the developing fetus, and are not caused by any action of the mother.
Sometimes the fertilized egg implants in a different place from the uterus, most often in the fallopian tubes. When this happens, bleeding can occur, accompanied by severe abdominal cramping and pain. Unfortunately, if an ectopic pregnancy is diagnosed, there is no choice but to end the pregnancy.
Bleeding during the second and third quarter is usually caused by problems with the placenta such as placenta previa or abruption. The placental abruption occurs when the placenta detaches from the wall uterine. The symptoms are bleeding and stomach pain. This issue affects only 1% of pregnant women and usually occurs during the last 12 weeks of pregnancy. A more common problem is placenta previa, which occurs when the placenta covers the cervix, either partially or completely. This is a serious condition that can endanger your pregnancy if bleeding occurs. If you have been diagnosed with placenta previa and have bleeding, you should consult your doctor immediately.
