Brief Answer:
Can be threatened aborton.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The bleeding that you are having cam be due to incomplete attachment of placenta. You are already taking gestofit and HCG injections. This will help in preventing the threatened abortion. These both will help in proper attachment of placenta. Take absolute bed rest till the bleeding stops completely. Since the heart beat is normal the baby is likely to be alright. Please do not worry and take rest.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer:
Wait till the bleeding stops.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
It is best to take absolute bed rest till the bleeding subsides completely. Avoid cough and constipation too to avoid any undue stress. You can join the office at least 5 days after the bleeding stops completely.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Doctor was the bleeding because of implantation. Will I have to take bed rest for the entire remaining months or else have to leave my job

Brief Answer:
No need to leave the job.

Detailed Answer:
Usually implantation bleeding is a mild one. This bleeding can be related to placental attachment. This will subside in few days. No need to worry. You can resume your job 7 days after the bleeding stops.

Brief Answer:
Usually it does not recur.

Detailed Answer:
Usually it does not recur once the placenta becomes attached to uterus. But it is best to avoid extreme stress till three months are complete.

Doctor is there any other reason for bleeding apart from placental attachment.i had bleeding only on the first day after that only tissue clot without bleeding when I pass urine . Till date no bleeding seen. Today is the sixth day if bed rest. Tomorrow again m visiting for check up as she told to come again. Is there any chance remaining for threatened abortion still.

Brief Answer:
No chance of abortion now.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Since there is no bleeding for last six days the risk of threatened abortion is almost over. Apart from placental attachment the bleeding can happen due to bleeding disorder or local injury. Now that bleeding has stopped there is no need to worry.
