What causes sub chorionic hemorrhage during pregnancy? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
This is XXXXXXX
we had an conversation few days back
This is regarding my wife who is 8 weeks pregnant
I remember the conversation. How is she doing now?
Are you there?
Are you there?
her ultrasould conducted on 10th showed that heart beat is 138
That's better than her previous readings.
but there is SCH measuring below 1cm
I would not be concerned with 138 heart beat.
her next scan is scheduled on 12th feb
in between these days should we go for any other scan?
I am sorry, I do not understand this short form.
even I am not sure they have mentioned sch and said minimal internal bleeding
sub chorionic hemorrhage
I guessed so.
Sub chorionic hemorrhage is sometimes noted in antenatal scan.
It is usually not concerning
as long as the baby is growing well and the patient has no bleeding or spotting.
If your wife is doing well symptomatically and if she is not having any bleeding
then you need not worry.
This hematoma would resolve.
she did not have any bleeding yet
she is having some symptoms of headache and head rotation
Avoid intercourse until her gynecologist gives the verdict.
we are not doing it since 2.5 months
as the period is very long till next scan
do we need to go for any other scan in between?
You keep your wife encouraged.
baby's growth was good
If I am not wrong, the next scan would be at 10 - 12 weeks.
around 1cm during 8th week
after 12 weekd
exactly after completion of 12 weeka
Yes, you need not go for scan inbetween.
but its not mentioned by doctor
The 12 weeks scan is to look how your baby's neurological development is.
when should we go then?
I am sorry, you got confused here.
I said, the latest scan is not concerning.
next scan is at end of 12th week
and starting of 13th week
if your wife has not bleeding issues.
no bleeding yet
this bleeding will get absorbed and usually doesn't cause any serious issues.
If your wife notices any bleeding or spotting, then we can plan review scan.
Presuming your wife doesn't develop any bleeding and spotting
the next scan can be done as planned.
after 12 weeks.
In the interim, restrict your wife from doing strenuous physical exercises/activities.
I would like to see the SCH resolving and confirm the location of placenta in the subsequent scans to give my verdict about sexual intercourse.
Hope it is clear now.'
Do you have any questions?
she does not do any sort of strenuous physical exercises/activities
but climbing up the stairs is that a problem?
That is fine.
she travels to office through bus
As long as the activities doesn't involve running, jumping, picking up heavy objects
I am also fine with her travelling.
that she is not doing
She might need to stop those travels, god forbidden if she develops spotting or bleeding.
Is that understood?
Do you have any more questions?
ok, I will keep this in mind
thanks doctor for the consultation
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
