Will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Yes: Typically, a subarachnoid hemorrhage will circulate through the cerebrospinal fluid and gradually and steadily disappear on imaging studies, and eventually be undetectable in spinal fluid. However, a consequence of such blood degradation products might be low pressure hydrocephalus due to clustering and obstruction of outflow areas. Most pts recover, but a number may have this complication. ...Read more

Occasionally there is a need to remove the hemorrhage surgically. ...Read more

Due date 15th May didn't started till 18th took medicine bleeding from 20th to 26th & again started on 31st May from today morning heavy bleeding Help

Seek care: If you're due date was May 15th.... then you are way over due to deliver a baby. Or do you mean your period was due on May 15th? If the latter, then you're having an abnormally long period.

In addition, could be polyp, fibroid, thyroid, weight as cause. ...Read more
