Thanks for your query.
I am a high risk pregnancy specialist.
I request you to upload the exact ultrasound report instead of typing it out.
Also please provide the details of the prior 2 miscarriages.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
Please do not stress out.
The information requested by me will help me to guide you better.
take care.

Thanks for the query.
I have gone through the report which you have uploaded.
At 6 weeks of pregnancy, fetal pole should be seen, which is seen in your case.
However , cardiac activity also should be visualized at 6 weeks, and that is not seen.
The perigestational bleed means that there is bleeding in the tissues which support the pregnancy.
There is a risk of miscarriage with such findings on ultrasound.
Progesterone supports the growing pregnancy and helps in preventing miscarriage.
Repeat ultrasound after one week should show cardiac activity and decrease in the amount of bleeding.
IF the bleeding doesnt resolve, then you would have a miscarriage.
You should rest, avoid intercourse, avoid exertion and take the medications as prescribed.
The ovarian cyst is not of any significance right now, dont worry about that.
Chromosomal issues are the commonest cause of miscarriages.
All the best with this pregnancy, however in case you miscarry, please have karyotyping of the products of conception and counselling with a Genetic Counsellor, before you plan your next pregnancy.
Bleeding does not occur normally in a pregnancy.
However, do not lose hope, as you might respond to treatment and progress well.
You would know for sure only after a week.
All the best.
