Is it safe to masterbate, orgasm and have sex while you have a subchorionic hematoma in early and late pregnancy? Orgasms make your uterus contract?

See answer: The presence of ultrasound-detected subchorionic hemorrhage (hematoma) increases risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, abruptio placentae, and preterm labor. Depending on your findings and md, may advise strict bed rest, refrain from lifting heavy objects, and avoid exercise.

To : To answer your questions: yes, there is a chance it will resolve on its own. There is definitely a chance of a miscarriage. With a medium sized subchorionic hemorrhage, your changes of a successful pregnancy are most likely around 50-50, but I have definitely seen it happen. A subchorionic hemorrhage does not necessarily put you at any greater risk of placental abruption, which is a different medical condition. You have done everything correctly. Be sure that you know that this is a random occurrence and just one of those things that happens for no reason. I will wish you the best. ...Read more

Is 3.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 retroplacental marginal hematoma and 1.2 x 0.6 x 1.9 cm subchorionic hematoma in the fundus big for 14 weeks? Is it dangerous?

Is 3.2 x 1.6 x 2.3 retroplacental marginal hematoma and 1.2 x 0.6 x 1.9 cm subchorionic hematoma in the fundus big for 14 weeks? Is it dangerous?

Monitoring: Subchorionic hematoma are small areas of blood collected behind the placenta. They increase the risk of bleeding and miscarriage slightly. The further along in pregnancy the less the risk of pregnancy loss. Continued monitoring with serial ultrasound is warranted. 3 cm is moderate size but size is relative in these cases as the size does not necessarily correlate with risk. ...Read more
