Brief Answer:
small bleed, precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr XXXXXXX thanks for trusting health care magic.
The collection mentioned is small and can eventually regress or increase in size.
Most probably it will regress by itself and with the help of injections which are most probably HCG injections it will regress faster.
But in case it increases the chances of spontaneous abortion will increase.
So to prevent it from increasing she should
- take full bed rest whole day except for eating food and going to bathroom.
- avoid constipation
- avoid sexual activity
- keep taking all the medicines as prescribed regularly.
Wish her the best of health.

Brief Answer:
progesterone or folic acid deficiency

Detailed Answer:
You are most welcome.
The cause is most often not known but exertion on the part of female or folic acid deficiency can cause this.
In some patients there is deficiency of progesterone and thus HCG or progesterone injections are given.
Rest is the most important part of management.
Take care.
