Hello and welcome,
I understand the query and there are 2 possible explanations for this:
1. The bleeding was due to an threatened abortion
2. It was an implantation
bleed secondary to a delayed conception.
In both cases, management is similar. It is based on the principal that if it is a threatened abortion then try to prevent it.
Even and ultrasound after 2-3 days may show a similar picture as a gestational sac
is difficult to visualise before 5 weeks. So until your appointment take bed rest, get a prescription of progesterone
and HCG if possible along with folic acid
. Sexual contact is to be avoided.
If the bleeding recurs, then it indicates that this is a progression towards inevitable abortion. However if it stops with treatment [ or if it was implantation bleed it will stop by itself] then pregnancy may continue and the baby will be well. So please do not worry. Take care.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
