Retroverted uterus, 16 weeks pregnant. When my uterus moves position, could it cause brown spotting?

Retroverted uterus, 16 weeks pregnant. When my uterus moves position, could it cause brown spotting?

Pregnant: spotting: Retroverted positionwill change at about 16-18 weeks because of the sacral promentory (back bone) which limits where the top of the uterus can be, and pushes it forward. This will cause the typical "baby bump". Brown discharge is not because of the forward movement of the uterus, and should be investigated by a health professional. ...Read more

Subchorionic bleed: Sounds like you have a subchorionic or subamniotic hematoma. Most of these will resolve over time. If you are a smoker, have other chronic health issues, it could get larger and cause a placental abrution. Mostly it requires close follow up and I would avoid intercourse until it resolves. ...Read more

I’m 5 weeks pregnant, and I was told that there’s a small hemoragging in the uterus, but i’m not bleeding. Is this a big deal? Will I miscarry?

I’m 5 weeks pregnant, and I was told that there’s a small hemoragging in the uterus, but i’m not bleeding. Is this a big deal? Will I miscarry?

Probably not: I assume you were told this by your obstetrician? If they had found anything serious, they would have told you. Many women have spotting in early pregnancy, and have healthy babies after nine months. Miscarriages happen, but you have a very low chance of having one.

If you see actual bleeding, you must report it to your doctor asap! ...Read more
