Question: Hi doctor I have been experiencing right side cramps I am 11 weeks 6 days pregnant. I went to the doctor and they said I have a UTI infection so I started antibiotic yesterday to clear the infection. I have right side pelvic pain. At 7 weeks I went to the doctor and they did a scan and could see the baby and heartbeat all was good. After taking the antibiotic last night I experienced light bleeding on my underwear. I've attached Photo. I’m quite worried I’m feeling dizzy and weak and pain on my shoulder. Could this be a sign of a miscarriage, or is it due to the antibiotic the bleeding. I have no bleeding now just when I woke up I saw red in underwear but when I put tissue inside there was nothing. Only discharge.

Brief Answer:
Can be due to urine infection.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The mild bleeding that you noticed on the underwear could be due to urine infection. The antibiotic is not likely to cause any such bleeding. If the heart beat was present at 7 weeks then there should not be anything to worry. The slight bleeding can also be suggestive of a miscarriage if it is persistent. You need to continue with the antibiotic and then self monitor the bleeding. Do take absolute bed rest and consult a gynecologist in case the bleeding persists.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
It is mild bleeding only.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have seen the uploaded photo. The bleeding is a mild one. If the bleeding continues then you need to consult your gynecologist and get an ultrasound scan done to check the well being of the fetus.

I was reading that shoulder tip pain is associated with an ectopic pregnancy. But at 6weeks and 6 days scam we saw heartbeat and yolk sac. I am having severe migraine shoulder and back pain it’s really painful. Could it be the side effect of the medication.

Brief Answer:
Nothing worrisome.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

When you have done the scan and everything is normal than there is no chance of an ectopic pregnancy. Pain in the shoulder and back may be due to some bone problem, there are no side effects of this medicine so take Thiocolchicoside twice daily or consult an orthopedics surgeon.

Hope I have answered your query.
