At 4 weeks 5 days my 1st hCG was 313, 2 days later 250, my cervix was closed had slight bleeding from ectropion. Am I going to misscarry?! No pain

Possibly yes: In a viable pregnancy the beta hCG concentration doubles every 48 hours.if that is not the case or HCG concentration decreases then the likelihood is that this is not a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

Right After a miscarriage bleeding stops will the cervix remain open or closed?

Open for a time.: A miscarriage is a process where the pregnancy is unable to be maintained for a number of reasons. The uterus contracts and you feel cramping pain. If the pregnancy is farther along this can cause slight opening (dilatation) of the cervix. Most of the time if this occurs it returns to normal in the first 3-4 wks. after the miscarriage. ...Read more

Had heavy bleeding which has stopped. If I miscarried would my cervix would still be closed? I am 6 weeks and 2 days along.

Had heavy bleeding which has stopped. If I miscarried would my cervix would still be closed? I am 6 weeks and 2 days along.

It could look closed: At six weeks along the products of conception aren't very big. If you had heavy bleeding then there is a good likelihood that you miscarried. To be sure whether you miscarried or not you could get a pelvic ultrasound which may show a gestational sac. You might also get a quantitative hCG to give some idea of whether you have a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

How quickly does a cervix close after miscarriage? I haemorrhaged over 1 litre in 1 hour and dr said cervix was closed straight after. Still bleeding

Varies : The cervical response after a miscarriage will vary from person to person. Treatment should be based on the amount of bleeding, hemodynamic stability and whether there is tissue still present in the uterus. Treatment is not really based on whether the cervix is open or closed ...Read more

I'm going through a threatened miscarriage cervix is closed I've been bleeding for 4 days. 6.5 weeks preg. What's happening?

Threatened ab: Bleeding in an otherwise normal pregnancy is called a threatened miscarriage. An ultrasound can help check for ectopic or abnormal pregnancy such as blighted ovum. If the ultrasound indicates a normal looking embryo then you have a good chance of continuing a normal pregnancy even though you had the bleeding. ...Read more

Serial HCG levels: The best follow-up for your symptoms is serial blood HCG levels and ultrasound. Its possible you had a miscarriage and some blood HCG levels will clarify this. If the HCG level continues to rise normally, you are still pregnant. If it is dropping fast, you probably had a miscarriage. There are some grey areas, so its best to have an Ob/Gyn follow you. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is it possible not to miscarry at 3-4weeks but still have bleeding for 2 days? I had a 46 hCG level cervix closed. They sd I was too early im so confus

Is it possible not to miscarry at 3-4weeks but still have bleeding for 2 days? I had a 46 hCG level cervix closed. They sd I was too early im so confus

Yes: It is possible; however close follow-up is still important. During very early pregnancy with bleeding, your doctor will monitor your HCG level to confirm that it is rising appropriately. You may also need another sonogram to evaluate your pregnancy. If you pass any tissue (resembles meat) or start bleeding more than 2 pads an hour or feel dizzy/faint, please go to the er. ...Read more

I ovulated on 6/18, then had what I thought was a full period on 7/2. On 7/8 I had positive hCG of 231 and on 7/11 had hCG of 539. Dr. says bleeding can be normal, but how? Isn't cervix closed?

Confused: You are right to be confused. Bleeding is never 'normal', expected, or ignored in pregnancy. A newly formed fetus is smaller than a speck of dust. If it is on the lining of the uterus and the uterus has a period, a sloughing off of the lining then usually the fetus goes with the blood. But, while not normal it is possible. ...Read more

Had miscarriage two days ago what should be positioned of my cervix should it.be closed or opened I was spotting but now i have no more bleeding?

Had miscarriage two days ago what should be positioned of my cervix should it.be closed or opened I was spotting but now i have no more bleeding?

Need an exam: You really need a pelvic exam to assess whether the cervix is now open or closed. There are different kinds of stages of abortion and the position/opening of the cervix can determine what stage you are in. The only way really know this is to have your doctor look at sea if the cervix is open or closed. If you are no longer bleeding it's likely you've had a complete abortion, but exam will prove it. ...Read more

My cervix was high, soft, and closed for almost two weeks. Now it's high soft open and heavy bleeding with sharp cramps. Could I be miscarrying?

You could be: Bleeding and cramping is always worrisome — but not diagnostic of miscarriage. Without additional information (your gestational age, pregnancy history) it is impossible to say anything more specific. I you have an OB doctor I recommend you call him/her as your next step, and best wishes. ...Read more

40weeks pregnant I went in to the doctors bleeding they said my cervix was closed and there was a 2cm cut what could it be from? I haven't had sex

Discuss with doctor: The doctors who examined you would have the best advice since they can question you and have seen this "cut". Would rely on those caring for you to be much more capable of formulating an opinion as to cause of this than anyone over the internet. Good luck and have a great baby. ...Read more

6 weeks pregnant bleeding passed clots. Was told cervix closed lining 11mm im i syill pregnant?

Pregnancy test: You may do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative, you are not pregnant. If it is positive, repeat it a week later. Alternatively, you could get a blood HCG level that would be more informative. If you wish to have more immediate answer, you may ask your doctor to do an ultrasound examination.
Wish you good health! ...Read more

Can an internal digital cervix exam at 28wks pregnancy cause mucus plug to come away? Worried after obgyn did internal due to bleeding. Cervix closed.

No: The mucus plug is produced more or less continuously and you would not loose it if your cervix is closed. An internal exam can be necessary to evaluate bleeding. Sounds like everything is good. ...Read more

I'm 8 weeks pregnant, went to the hosp with spotting, cervix was closed. Hosp did TV scan, saw baby, since been heavy bleeding/clotting. Is it normal?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant, went to the hosp with spotting, cervix was closed.  Hosp did TV scan, saw baby, since been heavy bleeding/clotting. Is it normal?

Heavy bleeding: If a fetus was seen at "8 weeks" of pregnancy, the active fetal heart should have been seen. Heavy bleeding after your history of "spotting" at eight weeks is not a good sign, of course. The causes of early miscarriage are unknown in many cases, but genetic abnormalities can cause same. ...Read more

Went to the ER -I had bleeding for 5-6 days after confirmed pregnancy. The dr checked my cervix and said its closed & my hCG is 6, & I am 3wks. Worry?

Early pregnancy: Unfortunately, an HCG of 6 is essentially not pregnant. Certainly at 3 weeks it should be higher. You should have that HCG rechecked to see if it has increased. ...Read more

Period like bleeding doc says cervix still closed, seen yok sac, bby, rising hcg.2 soon 2 c heartbeat. Could my bby still be alive or will I miscarry?

Too soon to tell : At this point, aside from the bleeding, all the other signs (rising hcg, closed cervix) indicate that you have not miscarried yet. However, bleeding during pregnancy warrants evaluation, and you still need close follow-up. Your doctor will likely re-check your HCG levels and repeat a sonogram to confirm the heartbeat. If you bleed more than 2 pads an hour or if you pass tissue, go to the er. ...Read more

Threatened abortion.: Cervical incompetence, infection, placenta previa, fibroids, fetal anomalies could all cause you to have threatened abortion (i.e. Opening cervix and vaginal bleeding at 18 weeks. Please see your obstetrician to get to the bottom of this asap. My advice would be modified bed-rest, complete pelvic rest and serial examinations and ultrasounds by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist. Best of luck! ...Read more

Going through a threatened miscarriage bleeding for 4days cervix is closed dr. Sees a gestational sac. I'm 6.5 weeks pregnant. What's happening?

Just wait: This is a critical time in implantation of the embryo and a time when a lot of pregnancies fail. It will be important over the next week or so to see what the outcome will be here. Not really anything you can do one way or the other at this point. ...Read more

I am bleeding with little clots and cramps, my hcg is low, ultrasound shows nothing, and my cervix is closed. Am I having a miscarriage?

Need more info: Was your period delayed? It may be that you are just having a heavier period. If your period was delayed, it is possible that you had spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. ...Read more

Need more info: What is the HCG level. If it is less than 25 you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may wish to repeat the blood test in 3-4 days to see the direction of change in HCG level. If you are pregnant, it should be going up. ...Read more

Unsure: It is possible that this pregnancy will fail, but at five weeks there is the very small chance that the pregnancy will progress and be normal. It would be appropriate to recheck the ultrasound exam in a week. Good luck. ...Read more
