Pregnant, lower abdominal and back pain, spotting and bleeding when wiped, vomit. Any problem in pregnancy?

Hi.this is my first pregnancy so if i feel some pain i really freak out.im on my 6th week now and experiencing lower abdominal pain similar to what i feel before i am about to have my period and i also have lower back pain which i feel more on the right side.as scanned a week ago, gestational sac is in normal position inside the uterus,could it still be possible to have ectopic pregnancy? I also experience spotting and bleeding but only when i wipe, its not red the bleeding is not so dark brown to light brown and sometimes very very light pink to almost white.as i write this, i am having hyperacidity like feeling so i vomit twice already.is there something wrong with my pregnancy?im really really worried.pls help.i am also a working mother.could my work affect my pregnancy?

Hi,
It is not normal to see spotting at this stage of pregnancy and this needs special attention. You should take absolute bed rest, avoid all forms of stress including intercourse and follow up the pregnancy with serial serum beta-hCG titres and sonogram. Rest should be taken until all the symptoms abate and viability of the pregnancy is established. Please consult your doctor for medication for vomiting. To relieve hyper acidity, you can take cold milk and avoid spicy foods and prolonged hours of fasting. Avoid taking excess medication. Repeat sonogram, preferably in the trans-vaginal route, can exclude ectopic pregnancy. Hope this helps.

I am 25 weeks pregnant and had a threatening miscarriage at 7 weeks. I have been doing well except for having a recurring vaginal infection. A few days ago I started having lower abdominal pains which lasted for 12 hours. Shortly afterwards I starting having back pains when I stood up. My gynae prescribed utrogen pills to be taken for a month orally. I am scared of taking them as the pain has stopped without me taking any medication plus the leaflet says it s not safe in second trimester pregnancy and does not necessarily reduce pre-term labour. I doubt I was in pre-term labour as I had no bleeding or vaginal discharge. Please help!

Hello. I m 32 years old and had my 4th c-section in December 2013, when I was told that my bladder is stuck to my uterus. Since my period started on Wednesday I ve been having some pain on the left side of my lower abdomen and at times it is so severe I can t stand up straight. When the pain subsides it leaves the area feeling quite sore and tender to the touch. Could this pain be related to my adhesions? I ve run a pregnancy test and that is negative. My GP is treating me for a UTI as there were a few white blood cells in my urine. I ve not been feeling quite right since my surgery and my wound was infected for a while and had to be cauterised. I can t tell what s related to my body recovering from pregnancy/surgery, or whether something else is going on.

My sister just told me that she has a mass measuring 22mm on her uterus. She is an otherwise healthy female 32.5yrs old. About 5 5 and weighs about 155-160lbs. There is a family history on the Maternal side of fibroids and Uterine/ovarian cancer. Is there a correlation between the size and whether or not it is cancerous? Also there has been active bleeding and her doctor is calling for surgery to remove the mass. Obviously I am concerned especially since we do not live close.

There is immediate and satisfactory opacification of the uterine cavity showing smooth marginal outline and normal mucosal pattern. There are no definite evidence for filling defectsnor abnormal areas of extrinsic deformities. The left fallopian tube is unopacified. There is well visualization of the right fallopian tube showing normal caliber and course with spillage of contrast into the peritoneal cavity. What does this mean?
