User:hi doctor
User:you know doctor what happen i told u abt my pregnancy. Yesteday suddenly i got brown discharge
Doctor:yes, but you had prior similar instances , right ?
User:i wass so afriad and confused rushed to hospital and check doctor with ultra sound scan told baby is fine.
Doctor:it is sometimes common, for brown scanty discharge to occur
User:then gave a injection called fertigyn 5000 units
User:yes doctor you are right i had it last month 24th feb
Doctor:but the bleeding should not be much frequent, and dark red in color, and there should be no clots
User:but only two drops
User:doctor gave microprogesta 100 mg and it stopped
User:but this time it is horrible having a little more.
Doctor:the volume should also not be more and should not be very large like flow of urine
Doctor:did the ultrasound check for the cervix ?
Doctor:and was that normal ?
User:huh??? i realy dont know how to explain u doctor
User:yesterday morning i had some two drops which was very much liquid
User:brownish in color
Doctor:ok, that is fine,
Doctor:since already the Ultrasound has been done, it is nothing to worry
Doctor:You just need bed rest for the time being
User:then went for a scan and injection. afternoon the same brownish dischage was there. then during night one time i had a brownish black dischage with clot
User:morning it was normal the same liquid
Doctor:May i know how many weeks are u into pregnancy ?
User:i use pad but in pad it was just like a stain. but when i pass urine i had this liquid substance in brown color coming out
User:i am really afriad
User:i am 8 weeks now
Doctor:DID U see your doctor ? and what were his examination findings ?
User:yes we took scan baby is fine and also heart beat is good.
User:doctor advised not to travel till teh baby is formed properly.
User:and also asked to avoid bike, auto travel
User:and then injection fertigyn 5000 units wass given
Doctor:It is probably that you may be having a defect in the cervix, which may be loose
User:and asked to continue this injection every monday for abt another 3 more weeks
Doctor:it may be the reason
Doctor:so until 12 weeks is passed, you should be a a bit cautious
User:but normally cervix will be closed right
Doctor:yes, but in some cases, it may be a bit , weak
Doctor:that may be the cause of the bleeding
Doctor:so STOP all unwanted travelling
User:i have not at all travedlled doctor. just to XXXXXXX my doctor i travelled else i am at home. even i am working from home
Doctor:and travel specially on bikes for the next 10 weeks
Doctor:how do u travel in that case ?
User:auto, MRT train
User:yesterday alone took teh rental car
Doctor:ok, that is fine
User:will that fertigyn 5000 units stop the discharge?
Doctor:anyway, take rest for now, and repeat the ultrasound after 2 weeks, just to make sure everything is fine
User:willthis discharge affect my baby?
Doctor:No, it prevents miscarriage and stabilises the endometrium
Doctor:to prevent any bleeding
User:then how to stop this discharge?
Doctor:No, the bleeding could be due to the placental displacement , and since the ultrasound is normal and the fetal heart rate is normal, u dont have to worry anything
Doctor:just bed rest will be ok
Doctor:once the placenta gets a proper hold into the uterus, it should be fine
User:but why this sudden bleeding? was it common during pregency? will this lead to abortion?
User:and can you explain what is mean by placental displacement?
Doctor:as i said, the bleeding could be due to the placental displacement
Doctor:the placenta is the connection between the uterus and the baby
Doctor:and in some cases, it may not be properly holding on to the uterus
Doctor:and in such cases bleeding can occur
Doctor:but the severity of the condition depends on if abortion will occur
Doctor:a mild displacement at the edges, is not to worry
User:ohhhh . i have all unwanted questions and fear in my mind.
Doctor:but if a major part of the placenta separates, then the chances of miscarriage are high
User:i dont know how to get rid of it. my fear is to how to safe gaurd my baby
Doctor:the only thing u can do is REST
Doctor:There is nothing else , that can be done
User:hmmmm ok doctor thank you so much for your advise. May be the bleeding did not stop i shall contact my doctor once agin. Thankyou so much
Doctor:the more u are stressed, the more your issues will increase
Doctor:so , just relax and stop worrying
User:ohhhhh........... ok doctor i will try to be relaxed and stop worrying
Doctor:U r welcome
User:millions of thanks
User:may be i shall contact you after 3 days
Doctor:Take care and bye for now
