Thanks for your query.You are 10 weeks pregnant and had slight bleeding.Your ultrasound study revealed placenta covering int os.But there is nothing to worry about. You do have what is called as marginal placenta Praevea.However this usually gets corrected as the pregnancy advances.
Pl consult your Gyenocologist regularly and have Ultrasound done every month to monitor the progress and position of Placenta.

Hello,thanks for your question,your 10 week pregnant and had,slight bleeding.Dear relax this small amount of bleeding is called as implantation bleeding and is normal,your ultrasound is normal however you have to be very cautious during pregnancy,as your placenta is low lying and has completely covered the internal have to avoid all sort of trauma and avoid all sternious work which may cause slight trauma to internal os and bleeding

Hi, welcome to HCM i am Dr Das
You have placenta prevai , that is abnormal localisation of the placenta. Be cautious. You will have to face few bleeding episodes during the pregnancy. But if that occurs you have tone admitted in hospital.
And one more thing you have to go for csection .
