Clots befind the placenta, retoplacental haemorrhage is one of the ultraound findings in cases with threatened miscarriage. In such cases we prescribe progesterone that help in decreasing the pain, bleeding and uterine contractions and help in resolving the problem. About two third of such cases resume to normal pregnancy, about one third the pregnancy ends in miscarriage
