thanks for using health care magic.

First, it has to be certain if you are pregnant by doing a rapid pregnancy test
with a pregnancy strip using urine or blood. If you are pregnant, the pregnancy
test should be positive at this point which is almost a month after your last
pregnancy. If it turns out that the pregnancy test is positive, then the possible
causes could be a threatened abortion which in some cases still could be
prevented from eventually coming out or other forms of abortions or other
complications related to pregnancy such an abnormally implanted pregnancy.
You should first of all, do a pregnancy test,
if its positive, you get an ultrasound and progesterone levels done and results
will direct further management which your doctor will prescribe.
Hope this helps you.
