Spots During First Trimester Pregnancy?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, is it normal for women to experience pregnancy in the first trimester? How to overcome it? How long does it happen?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Spots are small amounts of blood spotting from the vagina, most often in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Spots during pregnancy can occur due to several things:
1. bleeding implantation (attachment of the results of the meeting of sperm and egg cells to the uterine wall): attachment of the fetus to the uterine wall (implantation) that forms after the meeting of the egg and sperm cells will occur 6-12 days after intercourse, it usually causes symptoms in the form mild bleeding (spots) that can last for several hours to several days, usually not exceeding 1 month.
2. cervical irritation (cervical): not much brown blood spots can come from irritation of the cervix, because during pregnancy, hormones will change, so the blood vessels around the cervix will be more susceptible to irritation, especially if you have sex during pregnancy, usually will cause discharge due to irritation from the cervix. Irritation of the cervix can arise due to the examination of the womb by means of a tool inserted into the vagina such as a cocor duck (speculum), or due to an infection in the cervix can also cause the cervix to become irritated and inflamed, causing flecks.
3. miscarriage: if there is bleeding in gestational age less than 20 weeks, with or without accompanied by the release of blood in the form of lumps of meat (tissue), abdominal pain, and cramping in the abdomen and bleeding in large amounts, it is necessary to think about the occurrence of miscarriage. To ensure the condition of the miscarriage, it is necessary to carry out further examinations such as uterine ultrasound.
To get information about the causes, diagnosis and further handling of the complaints you feel, you should consult directly with a gynecologist, there will be conducted several examinations such as physical examinations, follow-up examinations such as ultrasound, blood tests and so on if needed.
