The : The blood you saw was likely just mixed with normal vaginal discharge. Where the blood came from is the more difficult question to answer. If you had vaginal irritation from an infection (i.e. Bacterial or yeast) or from recent intercourse this could be an explanation. Also could this possibly be the start of your period? Is it time? Lastly this could represent a urine infection. Do you have pain with urination or frequency? If you only saw the blood once i would not worry about it, if it has happened again, and it's not your period, you should schedule a visit with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

18wks pregnant. Have stomach bug went to hosp they gave me Iv fluids Maxalon ondesatron and buscopan via Iv. Buscopan unsafe? Worried now hurt baby?

Buscopan on the other hand have limited information and is used only when the benefits outweigh the risk in pregnancy. At 18 weeks gestation with stomach upset and only one dose of buscopan, I really do not think you have to worry. For reassurance, discuss further with your obstetrician.
Good luck. ...Read more
