What are these black blood clots and why is there cramp in my abdomen ? Iam 18 weeks pregnant ?

Hi I am 23 y/o this will be my 3rd child. In October I had an ectopic pregnancy @ 6 weeks. I am 18 weeks today and when I wiped after urinating I had numerous small black blood clots. I have been having cramping in my abdomen the last week. I don t want to go into my hospitals L&D if it isn t absolutely necessary. My husband is in Afghanistan and I have 2 young children.

It seems to be an incomplete or missed abortion.You should go for an USG and gynec check up , if it is threatened abortion then also you need treatment for that and blood Hb is must. At 18 weeks it is less likely to be an ectopic but one should always be cautious.

I have been heavily constipated since the day before yesterday and for the past week or so i have been encountering heavy white gooey discharge from my vagina. I suffered a miscarriage last month in August and have since had my period. What do you think this could be? I have been having unprotected sex with my husband.

I had vaginal bleeding (period was 10 days prior, I don t have break through bleeding/spotting) around 1am (I got up to pee), it was bright red, kind of a lot I thought when I wiped but seemed to subside after then (no other pain than I usually have - I have discomfort on a regular basis, they said it was probably endimetrios about 7 years ago). I am 38, had dysplacia 2x (stage 2 -1st x had cryo=2001, 2nd x stage 1 cleared on own=2006?) I had the obgyn do a pregnancy test the day after bleeding they said I wasn t pregnant (believe I had a miscarriage a yr ago) nor was I trying to get pregnant. They did an ultrasound and found many calcifications in my endocervical canal. My obgyn said she is going to scrape them out and anylize them but says she has never seen this before. What is going on?

Hi I had a missed miscarriage. At 12 weeks, fetus only showed as 6 weeks and with no heartbeat. My Bhcg levels were also dropping. Doctor prescribed 800mg of misoprosotol and I m going to find out this week, if it was successful in clearing everything. How long does the misoprostol stay in the system and when is it safe to try again? thanks
