At what size is a subchorionic hemorrhage considered large or dangerous.?

At what size is a subchorionic hemorrhage considered large or dangerous.?

~50% Placental Bed: A subchorionic hemorrhage/hematoma is a bleed between the pregnancy and the uterine wall. It is an US finding, that if coupled with vaginal bleeding, can potentially increase the risk of miscarriage/preterm delivery, but w/out vaginal bleeding, it's hard to say. Size matters; worse if bigger (covering ~50% of placental bed) or occurring later. It can heal itself, but you just have to wait/watch. ...Read more

Can a large subchorionic hematoma flatten the gestational sac at 7 weeks?

Can a large subchorionic hematoma flatten the gestational sac at 7 weeks?

Is 3.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 retroplacental marginal hematoma and 1.2 x 0.6 x 1.9 cm subchorionic hematoma in the fundus big for 14 weeks? Is it dangerous?

Monitoring: Subchorionic hematoma are small areas of blood collected behind the placenta. They increase the risk of bleeding and miscarriage slightly. The further along in pregnancy the less the risk of pregnancy loss. Continued monitoring with serial ultrasound is warranted. 3 cm is moderate size but size is relative in these cases as the size does not necessarily correlate with risk. ...Read more

14 weeks pg. Subchorionic hematoma. Blood looks like its breaking down. Us looks different it's big. Should I be on bed rest?

No: There's no evidence that bed rest would help your situation. A lot of women (most) who have subchorionic hemorrages do fine with their pregnancies. Avoid seriously strenuous activities, and consider avoiding sexual intercourse and orgasm. But bed rest, lying in bed, isn't going to help and may have complications of its own. ...Read more

What causes a subchorionic hemorrhage? Started at 13 weeks and lost baby at 16 weeks. Passed large clots at 15 weeks & 10 hours before miscarriage

That can be difficul: To say. A placental abruption is what this is called when it happens later in pregnancy, usually due to trauma. Your loss is classified as a miscarriage though it did happen later than usual. The bleeding can be like a chain reaction, blood, cramping then more tearing away. There is a good chance u will be fine with the next pregnancy but review this with your doctor. There may not b a gd answ. ...Read more
