Pelvic ultrasound: Ultrasound cannot predict when your period will start. If there was something seen inside the uterus right before an expected cycle, it could be a blood clot. It could also be something else. What was seen could certainly be blood or debris indicating the beginning of a period, but I would encourage follow up to be certain that something else is not going on inside your uterus.

Yes, but. ..: During menstruation, it is normal to pass some smaller clots (say, dime sized). However, if you are bleeding profusely or passing large clots, consider visiting a doctor for an evaluation of your heavy menstruation. Hormones, fibroids, polyps are common causes. A pelic exam and ultrasound are the next steps. Treatment options will depend on your future fertility plans.

If a woman has a blood clot during pregnancy, what will happen to the baby?

If a woman has a blood clot during pregnancy, what will happen to the baby?

Probably nothing: I presume that you are referring to a deep vein thrombosis. This will not affect the baby but the medication used to treat it can. Its important that drugs which do not cross the placenta are used to treat the problem to avoid any harm to the baby.

What could it mean when you pass a very small blackish blood clot during the 6th week of a normally developing pregnancy?

What could it mean when you pass a very small blackish blood clot during the 6th week of a normally developing pregnancy?

Depends: Bleeding in early pregnancy is common - about 1/3 of women may have some degree of bleeding. It is important to establish that the pregnancy is in the uterus and not an "ectopic pregnancy " which can be life-threatening. A sonogram will help establish the location and health of the pregnancy. It may also be able to determine the source of the bleeding. One's blood type should also be checked.

Ovarian cyst during pregnancy causing lots of bleeding and some blood clots. How is this treated?

Ovarian cyst during pregnancy causing lots of bleeding and some blood clots. How is this treated?

Not a cyst cause: In general, an ovarian cyst does not cause vaginal bleeding during pregnancy. The usual causes would be an issue with the placenta, a growth on the cervix, premature labor, for instance. You need to clarify with your doctor what the cause of the bleeding is to know how to treat. However avoid intercourse, heavy lifting or exercise for now would be reasonable.

Can women with no known blood issues take a aspirin a day during and after pregnancy to prevent blood clots? I'm afraid of getting pregnant and clots

Can women with no known blood issues take a aspirin a day during and after pregnancy to prevent blood clots? I'm afraid of getting pregnant and clots

Not recommended: Aspirin is prescribed for some very specific issues in pregnancy; however, its not recommended for general use. In the first trimester, aspirin use is concerning for increased pregnancy loss and even congenital defects. In the third trimester it can cause premature closure of an important vessel in the babies heart. You shouldn't use it unless you are prescribed it by a doctor. Best wishes!

What causes blood clots during pregnancy?

What causes blood clots during pregnancy?

Multiple: The most important factor is the hormonal changes that occur. Also, not moving around and the pressure from the baby on venous system can increase "stasis" which means the blood not moving around as much. The best thing to do is to stay active and be aware of other risk factors, like smoking, obesity and other blood clotting problems. Check with your doctor for specific information for yourself.

How much does your chance if blood clots increase during pregnancy? Does a previous c-section make this higher?

How much does your chance if blood clots increase during pregnancy? Does a previous c-section make this higher?

A previous csection: Does not increase your risk and the risk for the average healthy women is low, risk is more right after surgery that is why for the 1st 24-36 hours sequential compression stockings are used to prevent venous stasis that could lead to blood clots until you are up ambulating.

If your healthy what are the chances of getting pre eclampsia or blood clots and dying during pregnancy or after giving birth?

If your healthy what are the chances of getting pre eclampsia or blood clots and dying during pregnancy or after giving birth?

Not likely: If healthy, and you eat well, keep active, take prenatal vitamins and have regular prenatal checks, while pregnant, you are not at risk for clots or pre eclampsia. Also, your chances of dying are about zero. Would you like to have a baby? Are you afraid? Looks like you have done some research. Why not talk to your dr about your concerns. Good luck to you.

I stopped taking aspirin for headaches everyday due to pregnancy. Could my blood clot now? I can't take Excedrin anymore. I'm a healthy 26 year old.

Daily aspirin?: If you were taking Aspirin daily for headaches then, you will not be any more libel to clot your blood off the medication compared to being on. It's not good to take daily Aspirin for headaches anyways.
