We understand the discomforts and worries you feel.
Bleeding that occurs in the age of the first trimester is often associated with a miscarriage or in medical language called abortion. Abortion is a condition of decay of fetal tissue at less than 20 weeks' gestation. Miscarriages can be caused by various factors, namely genetic disorders, infections such as TORCH (toxoplasma, rubella, Citomegalovirus, herpes, and other types of diseases), trauma, etc.
Abortion can occur completely, incomplete, imminent, insipiens, missed abortion and habitual abortion.
Miscarriage is synonymous with bleeding that occurs in young pregnancies (under 20 weeks). There are several types of miscarriages / abortion that have different symptoms.
Complete abortion occurs when all fetal tissue comes out of the uterus, which is usually bleeding accompanied by a blood clot. This type of abortion often does not cause symptoms of abdominal pain and does not require curettage. While incomplete abortion occurs if bleeding comes out, can be accompanied by clots, and some fetal tissue is still in the uterus, which will make the stomach feel very painful and the action of curettage is recommended. Imminent abortion is a condition that is still a threat of miscarriage, because bleeding has occurred but the cervix / birth canal is still closing. The fetus is still healthy in the womb. This condition can still be maintained by taking medication and reducing physical activity. While insipien abortion is also a threat of miscarriage, but the birth canal is open. Complaints can be accompanied by uterine contractions which cause pain in the lower abdomen and require immediate action.
Regarding your condition, we recommend that you re-examine the nearest obstetrician or midwife to rule out the possibility of a miscarriage that is threatening. Examination by ultrasound and direct examination can assess your fetus and uterus. These conditions must get the right treatment so that the content can be maintained, if indicated experiencing the threat of abortion / miscarriage. Don't worry too much about your condition, stay relaxed, avoid physical or psychological stress, limit excessive physical activity and fulfill your body's fluid needs every day.
