Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) It is possible to have subchorionic bleed during early gestation which is quite frequent in IVF pregnancies.

2) Unfortunately there is not much which can be done from treatment perspective as it is very early gestation.

3) Only best management would be to take rest as ER doctor has adviced. Hence please continue to take rest. Be relaxed mentally which will be a positive approach.

4) Get scan repeated after one week to check bleeding as well as status of fetus.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
