hi,im 7 weeks pregnant.i went to the hospital last week for an ultrasound scan as i had pain in my side and tummy.it was suspected ectopic.the scan showed a sac and yolk but no baby.they said i was either not as far pregnant as i thought or i could be miscarrying.i had my hcg levels checked and they went up nearly doubled but not quite in 48 hours which they said was reasonable.im now having light bleeding and i lost a very small clot which seemed quite hard after investigating.looked more like tissue.do you think this is the start of a miscarraige?
Hi. Thanks for your query. All the findings of ultrasonography and your passage of a clot is indicative of missed abortion / miscarriage. Get a repeat ultrasonography done, if the sac is not there nothing to worry, otherwise you may required suction and curettage.
After everything is settled you have to undergo a battery of tests to see why was miscarriage occur. These include, Hormones, TORCH and others under the guidance of the Gynecologist and get treated for the ones which are treatable. you should avoid pregnancy for 6 more months and start multivitamins and Folic acid- folvite a few months before you want to take a second chance.
