Doctor :   if there is severe bleeding, and there is severe trauma, she may need to be hospitalised and given IV fluids and blood transfusion
User :   will der be any removal of womb... or by giving medicines only th epuss can be removed...
Doctor :   if there is a uterine damage, then, repair of the wound can be done
Doctor :   removal of uterus is not done in this stage
Doctor :   as the uterus is not large enough to be severely damaged
Doctor :   at 2 weeks, the uterus is very small, just the size larger than a fist
Doctor :   so chances of severe injury will be less
Doctor :   but if there is any injury to the cervix, or vagina, then that needs to be repaired
User :   ok....
User :   so that can be repaired by medicines only na...
Doctor :   Yes with antibiotcs and pain killers
User :   does this breaking of womb occurs to othe rpeople also...?
Doctor :   no , not unless there is severe damage, as in an accident, falls, with severe pressure on a uterus
User :   ders s also swelling... severe swelling... in abdomen ... since past 2 weeks....
Doctor :   this sort of injury occurs when the pregnancy is over 15 weeks
Doctor :   the swelling could be due to bloating, which is common in earlier weeks of pregnancy
Doctor :   abdominal distension is very minimal and not even seen within 2 weeks of pregnancy
Doctor :   bloating is collection of gas in the intestines
