Thanks for writing to us.
A subchorionic abruption refers to a mild bleeding due to mild placental detachment. This can happen due to exertion or sudden jerk. You need to have bed rest and have a follow up scan to review regarding the progress of the clot.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
