Q:

Hi. I am seeking expert guidance on my current situation. I am in my first trimester, 9 weeks pregnant. During this period, bleeding(spotting) occurs on some days which last for 1-2 days max. Also, I am having severe lower back ache. Please guide me the cause and remedy for the same.
Thank you!



consult ur gynaecologist
i suppose she may suggest u rest

backpain is normal in pregnancy, but for bleeding plz consult ur doctor coz bleeding during pregnancy is not normal.

Thanks Hazel and Ankita for your prompt help and response. On my last visit to gynae, I shared my concern with her. To which, she suggested to get ultrasound done. The ultrasound report was normal as per her and so for bleeding, she was not sure of the cause and so she prescribed Duphasston medicine which I had for 1 week and then again today bleeding occurred.
Will get it check again and if need be will take second opinion.

some women experience slight bleeding during early pregnancy which is attributed to the process of implantation. however any bleeding accompanied with pain and that persists is a concern. a repeat scan would help.

Thank you very much Dr. Payal. Will surely get this addressed at the earliest.

Bleeding is not normal and should be reported to the doctor. A little spotting may happen in the early weeks when the placenta implants but that is just one incidence. Back pain can be due to posture but in early pregnancy it is related to the hormonal changes.

Hi Deepti. even I m having bleeding episodes and doctor has prescribed me bed rest. It can be due to collection of blood vessels at one place called venous plexus and due to which bleeding and clotting happens. Please take complete rest and limit your standing and vertical sitting posture. get your scan done. many times pregnancy goes normal though bleeding happens.

Thank you very much Sonali and Sugandha for your valuable inputs and kind advice. Yes, taking complete rest. All of you have put my mind at ease. Once again heartfelt thanks to each one of you. This is indeed a great community and forum.

Sure Aashi. Thank you! Please you too take care of yourself.
