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

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

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 or not there is tissue still present in the uterus. Treatment is not really based on whether or not 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 several 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 to 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 to 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
