Question: Bleeding after getting a postive result of Pregnancy.

Hi

I am XXXX. I am having a problem regarding my pregnancy. So I am worried about it.

I had my last period on 25th December 2016. After that I missed my period on 25th of January 2017. So i took a Pregnancy Test at home only. I took the Home Pregnancy Test on 4th February 2017. The result was positive.

But now the problem is that from 6th of February evening I am bleeding little little for which I am not using a pad. The blood is not bright red. I am not bleeding like a normally I do during periods time. But tiny clots looks like nerves coming out from 6th of february. I am only bleeding when I am going for pee. Not before that or after that.

Can any body help me out. What should I do?

Brief Answer:
Diagnosis should be confirmed

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Bleeding in early pregnancy can be due to abortion, ectopic pregnancy or haemorrhage around the fetus ( subchorionic haemorrhage).
However, the exact diagnosis can be made by proper clinical examination and ultrasound.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined and investigated and get appropriate treatment timely.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Thank you Doctor.

Today evening I had an abdominal pain with cramps and back pain. It pained like its going to take my life away. After that I went to washroom. I bled with bright red color blood. And with that a big clot came out and there was discharge also which was red in color. After that there is no abdominal pain and cramps. But now am bleeding little little.
