Brief Answer:
Placenta previa

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Low lying placenta reaching internal os is termed as placenta previa, and is the cause of bleeding in pregnancy.
The treatment is bed rest, restricted physical activity and avoidance of intercourse.
This bleeding will not lead to miscarriage.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, bleeding from placenta previa stops in 4-5 days maximum if the strict bed rest, abstinence and restricted physical activity is followed.
However, if any one of these is not followed , then bleeding can continue for longer.

Progesterone injection

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
If thebleeding is continuing for 9 days, then you should get a repeat ultrasound to assess if any retroplacental bleeding or hematoma is there.
You should be given progesterone injections to support the pregnancy.
Bed rest, restricted physical activity should be practiced.
