Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, you had spotting in first trimester of pregnancy it called threatened abortion. you should rule out the cause of it. you shoulsd get thyroid n gonadal hormon test, sonography of uterus. when you will get pregnant you should get antiphospholipid antibody test, avoid exertion, should take rest atleast first can try for getting baby after 3month.
