Can implantaion bleeding last for 4-5 days. It started off with very little spotting then got heavier. Can that be implantaion bleeding for twins?

Unlikely: Implantation bleeding is somewhat of a misnomer. Definitely most women do not have what could be identified as 'implantation bleeding.' the bleeding that you describe sounds more like a period. Why don't you take a home pregnancy test to see of you are actually pregnant? That will give you the information you're looking for. If positive, then make an appt with doctor for ultrasound. ...Read more

My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?

My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?

Not unheard of.: Most recent data suggest that many of us started our in utero lives with a co-twin that never survived to viability, or even detection by ultrasound. Losing a dichorionic twin and continuing the pregnancy with the survivor is actually a well-known outcome in multifetal pregnancies. The earlier the fetal loss the less severe the consequences to the survivor, because these insults are all/nothing. ...Read more

Can implantation bleeding be heavier with twins?

Can implantation bleeding be heavier with twins?

It's been 7 weeks since I had my C-section with twins and I'm still bleeding is that normal.

Where & how much?: Are you having vaginal bleeding or bleeding at the incision site? I assume you mean vaginal bleeding. If so, is it heavy and red or primarily spotting, reddish brown? While it is possible to have benign persistent spotting, if it is anything more, you should see your clinician. All postpartum patients should have a followup gyn exam 4-6wks after delivery anyway. ...Read more

I got prg with twins and on us we saw 2 sac but 1 heartbeat. Im bleeding slightly...no pain or cramp. Can it be the twin miscarrying? I must be 7 week

I got prg with twins and on us we saw 2 sac but 1 heartbeat. Im bleeding slightly...no pain or cramp. Can it be the twin miscarrying? I must be 7 week

Yes: Bleeding in pregnancy can be a sign of a miscarriage but it can also be caused by other things. However, depending on how good the ultrasound equipment is, and how certain the gestational age, its not always possible to see a heartbeat at 7 weeks. Sometimes, it will be seen if you wait a week or two and and look again. Best wishes! ...Read more

Miscarried twin at 7 weeks and still bleeding a month in a half later. Obgyn said everything has passed so why am i still spotting this black blood?

Miscarried twin at 7 weeks and still bleeding a month in a half later. Obgyn said everything has passed so why am i still spotting this black blood?

But you are still: Pregnant right?? It is not uncommon to miscarry one twin. The cervix is probably slightly open and can leak old blood from the miscarriage . That is why it is so dark. It is not the baby but old blood from the lining trickling out. You are not at any risk nor is baby from this ...Read more

Just did a vaginal ultrasound. Found twins but no heartbeats. No heavy bleeding or anything. Could it just be too early to detect them?

Just did a vaginal ultrasound. Found twins but no heartbeats. No heavy bleeding or anything. Could it just be too early to detect them?

Unlikely: If the embryos are at least 6 wks gestational age a decent us should be able to detect cardiac activity. Hopefully it is earlier than this and a repeat will reveal good news. If not, follow up with your OB and remember that sometimes nature selects abnormal pregnancies or chromosome problems and simply doesn't allow a pregnancy to progress. Ie - there is no way for you to prevent or cause this. ...Read more
