Blood Clots And Breast Pain During Miscarriage At 4 Weeks?
I am latifa. Some time ago I had a miscarriage at the age of 4 weeks and already a large clot of dates came out after that the blood that came out was dry and my breasts hurt again.rnI’m afraid maybe the fetus is still alive?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Miscarriage (abortion) is the end of pregnancy when the fetus has not been able to survive in the outside world, namely when the gestational age is less than 20 weeks and the fetal weight has not reached 2500 grams. This miscarriage can occur spontaneously or not.
It needs to be clarified, have you ever confirmed your pregnancy to an obstetrician? So, after removing the blood clot from the birth canal, have you checked it back to the doctor?
If it is true that you are pregnant, then the discharge of a blood clot the size of a date does not always indicate a miscarriage. This blood clot can also come out due to other reasons, for example:
Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus)
Pregnant with grapes (pregnant with grapes)
Injuries to the reproductive organs, for example due to trauma during sexual intercourse, masturbation, entry of foreign objects
Irritation or infection in the reproductive organs, for example due to genital herpes, syphilis, chancroid
Vaginal fistula (abnormal passageway that connects the vagina to other organs)
Malignancies, such as vulvar cancer, cervical cancer, and so on
This blood can clot due to the presence of blood clotting factors that work in your body to deal with excessive bleeding.
Therefore, if you have not had your pregnancy checked after experiencing bleeding, it is not certain that you have miscarried. Breasts that are still painful can not specifically distinguish, whether you are pregnant or not. Because, breasts can feel pain due to hormonal changes, mechanical stimulation (eg when rubbed or pressured), breast skin infections, and so on.
It's best if you check directly with an obstetrician, yes. Through ultrasound examination, it can be assessed more accurately how the health of the fetus in your womb is, whether it can still be maintained, or not. Even if it is true that you have miscarried, and the fetus can no longer be preserved, then through ultrasound the doctor can also determine the next treatment, whether it is enough to give medicine, or maybe a curettage operation is needed to clean the remaining tissue left in the uterus.
In the meantime, you should first compress the area of your breast that feels sore using warm water. Use a bra and clothes that are comfortable, not too tight. Get plenty of rest and calm your mind.
Hope it helps ya..
