What causes heavy bleeding during pregnancy?

I am 5wks pregnant, I have been having heavy bleeding for the past four days. I have been passing big blood clots with severe cramping in my lower back area. I have went to the ER but they only said it was a UTI and didn t do anything. Could someone tell me what is going wrong with me and do I need to go back to the doctor

Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is not normal to bleed this much in pregnancy.
You should take tablet duphaston and strict bed rest so as to have a problem free pregnancy.
Duphaston basically has progesterone which is of Paramount importance in continuation of pregnancy.
It is routinely prescribed drug and is safe for both mother and baby.
Take care. In case you have other questions you can contact me directly on
