Question: I am 8 weeks pregnant. And had heavy bleeding on 19th of April. Got the scan done everything was normal. After that day it reduced to spotting. On 22nd when this does not stop I again went to doctor and took the TVS scan. Minimal SCH was noted. Took the injection proluton and started with regular susten progesterone tabs. Its being 10 days but the bleeding/spotting did not go. Its brownish meroon thread like 5-6 times a day. Pls suggest is it normal or it can be a risk for me and baby. What precautions shall i take and how long should i wait for this to stop. Attached are the reports.

Brief Answer:
collected blood coming out

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, thanks for trusting health care magic.
As ultrasound shows viable pregnancy with cardiac activity there is nit much to worry as this continuing bleeding is most likely the colkected blood which is trying to come out of the uterine cavity.
Now our main concern is to stop it from recurring again for which you should take care of the following points -
- take bed rest as much as possible with at keadt 8 hours sleep at night and a minimum of 2 hours rest in afternoon
- avoid exertion or lifting heavy objects like bucket of water ir oike of clothes
- avoid intercourse
- take folic acid tablet regularly.
Try to stay relaxed and calm as most likely this is the collected blood only so just rest and above precautions will suffice.
Take care
