It is possible to have spotting or a little more bleeding than that on your expected date of periods for first 3 months of pregnancy and yet all will be well. Still to be on the safer side , it is best to take complete bed rest and a scan if things dont settle in a couple of days. See your gynaec thereafter as she may need to put on some medication if you are threatening to abort. Abortion in early days of pregnancy is a nature's way of getting rid of an abnormal pregnancy. Such pregnancies are not repetitive so not to worry . Take care and all the best !

It is not unusual to have bleeding during first three months of pregnancy. It can be due to non fusion of chorionic layers or you may be suffering from Threatened abortion. , It is very difficult to differentiate between the two!! Hence relax, have a complete bed rest and if possible consult the nearest gyno.

My 68 year old husband has a history of kidney stones. He had a lithotripsy 4 days ago for a kidney stone after having a stent placed for a week prior. The stone was intially lodged in the ureter but was too high to have a basket retrieval so it was pushed back into the kidney for the later lithotripsy. He was taken off Plavix and ASA he takes for 2 prior heart attacks. He was taking Hydrocodone every 4 hours for pain. He also has a hx of prostate cancer successfully treated by proton therapy. The stent was removed yesterday. He developed low abdominal discomfort, lethargy, loss of appetite and a low grade temp. He is voiding without difficulty. IVP was done today along with a urinalysis, CBC and chem profile but all is normal. Waiting on urine culture results. IM Rosefin and PO Ceclor was started today. He continues with the low grade temp, now no higher than 100.8 but has no appetite (is drinkining) and falls asleep at the drop of a hat. He is currently taking Acetaminaphen for the temp above 100, Ceclor 3x/day and Protonix. MD does not think problem could be a fungal infection. Just waiting now for urine culture results but my husband is miserable in the meantime. Any thoughts?
