Is subchorionic hematoma linked with other risks?

Adverse effects of: SCH on pregnancy outcomes depend on size, gestational age, & maternal age. Fetal growth restriction, placental abruption, pre-eclampsia, prematurity, & fetal distress may occur. If there is significant decrease in blood flow & nutrients to the fetus, brain & other organ development may be altered. Anxiety doesn't help. Monitoring & treatment by a Fetal-Maternal Medicine specialist do help.

What are the risks associated with a subchorionic hematoma?

What are the risks associated with a subchorionic hematoma?

Problems: Subchorionic bleeding is usually placental in origin, making a stable bleed a stable placental abruption. Subchorionic bleeding is associated with elevated rates of miscarriage, preterm labor, placental abruption, and preterm rupture of membranes. Many cases will turn out ok though. An OB should be involved, and serial ultrasound can be helpful in following the bleed.

Is it normal to pass a clot if I have a subchorionic hematoma?

Pregnancy bleed: Subchorionic hematomas are small blood collections behind the placenta. It is common in the first trimester of pregnancy. Trapped blood will either reabsorb, find a path way out or simply stay in place. If it can find a pathway out then the patient will see bleeding. Close follow up with your Obgyn is warranted.

Can sex cause subchorionic hematoma to get bigger?

Can sex cause subchorionic hematoma to get bigger?

No really: We frequently advise those who have a subchorionic hematoma to avoid intercourse to help avoid bleeding. There is not evidence that sex makes one bigger.

Can a large subchorionic hematoma flatten the gestational sac at 7 weeks?

Depends: The hematoma may give the sac an unusual shape. Usually it does not. If there is a n unusual shape a follow up ultrasound and evaluation should be done within a week or right away if there is painful bleeding, or heavy bleeding. Nature will decide how successful the pregnanacy can turn out. There is nothing you can do to change the eventual outcome for the embryo.

How long should I expect a subchorionic hematoma to bleed? When should I start to worry if it does not? (I have already seen a doctor about it)

How long should I expect a subchorionic hematoma to bleed? When should I start to worry if it does not? (I have already seen a doctor about it)

Uncertain: As long as the fetus is growing appropriately, that is the best you can hope for. Clearly, if you have other medical disorders, these should be under control. Best wishes

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.

How does a subchorionic hematoma cause a miscarriage? Like how does it actually cause you to lose the baby? What is the mechanism involved? Thanks.

If u have one: It is your ob;s job to explain that to u, it can cause the placenta to separate from the uterine wall so the fetus will have no blood supply, most sub chorionic hematoma in the 1st trimester resolve and do not cause a loss.

14 weeks pg. Subchorionic hematoma. Blood looks like its breaking down. Us looks different it's big. Should I be on bed rest?

14 weeks pg. Subchorionic hematoma. Blood looks like its breaking down. Us looks different it's big. Should I be on bed rest?

No: There's no evidence that bed rest would help your situation. A lot of women (most) who have subchorionic hemorrages do fine with their pregnancies. Avoid seriously strenuous activities, and consider avoiding sexual intercourse and orgasm. But bed rest, lying in bed, isn't going to help and may have complications of its own.

Can a subchorionic hematoma have greater risk with a retroverted uterus?

Can a subchorionic hematoma have greater risk with a retroverted uterus?

Usually unrelated: A retroverted uterus shouldn't contribute to a miscarriage and management would be the same, expectant. Good luck with your pregnancy.

Can pill of 240mg DHA /340mg epa cause blood thinning/bleeding of my non-bleeding small subchorionic hematoma? I'm 10 weeks preggo & it's never bled.

Can pill of 240mg DHA /340mg epa cause blood thinning/bleeding of my non-bleeding small subchorionic hematoma? I'm 10 weeks preggo & it's never bled.

Maybe: Any supplement or medication taken during pregnancy must be carefully discussed and reviewed before you start taking it with your ob-gyn. There are conflicting reports regarding whether these omega 3 fatty acids cause bleeding or making clotting more difficult once bleeding has occurred. A hematologist can directly test your bleeding time and recommend if benefit outweighs risk.

My ultrasound shows subchorionic hematoma I am 6wk long and I have a history of miscarriages my OB didn't put me on bed rest is these normal?

My ultrasound shows subchorionic hematoma I am 6wk long and I have a history of miscarriages my OB didn't put me on bed rest is these normal?

Yes: Subchorionic hematomas are quite common in early pregnancy, and most of them are absorbed (blood is washed away) within a few weeks. Bed rest is usually not necessary, but pelvic rest may be a good idea (nothing inserted into the vagina)...consider discussing this with your OB. They may want to do a follow up ultrasound in a month or two. Congrats on your pregnancy!

11 wks preg with subchorionic hematoma. Have sharp pains in upper right chest between breast & collar bn. Radiates to arm and back. Should I contact dr?

Yes: The symptoms are not likely related to the sub chorionic hematoma, but pregnancy puts you at risk for blood clots. It may be nothing, but a pulmonary embolus can be life threatening.

SCH: SCH (subchorionic hematomas) are very common findings in early pregnancy. The often cause bleeding. Although the rate of miscarriage is higher in most cases things turn out fine. It is a small blood collection behind the placenta. The blood is either reabsorbed or it drains out. Typically a follow up sonogram is done over the next few weeks to confirm.
