Monthly during pregnancy
Women know that the first sign of a possible pregnancy is the absence of menstruation in due time. And if, indeed, a new life has arisen in you, then throughout the nine months there should not be any bloody discharge.
And suddenly … monthly during pregnancy.
Why did this happen? And how dangerous is it?
Yes, it happens. And quite often.
In most cases, a month with early pregnancy – more precisely, in the first month – a phenomenon that does not pose a threat to the health of mom and the future baby. Its reason is that the hormonal background of the mother has not yet changed.
Simply put, the allocation appeared because at the time of fertilization the egg did not have time to get to the right place, and therefore the usual reaction of the body – the monthly ones – followed.
By nature, the months in the first month of pregnancy differ from the usual ones – they are not plentiful, slightly bloody, painless and quickly come to an end.
However, it is not necessary to ignore this phenomenon – a doctor’s consultation is mandatory. After all, the reasons for the appearance of menstruation in the first month of pregnancy can be more serious – for example, such as the fading of fetal development or ectopic pregnancy.
In the first case, the development of the embryo and the smearing stops, scant excretions indicate his death. With ectopic pregnancy, there is a risk of rupture of the fallopian tube, which requires immediate help, as it is dangerous for the woman herself.
We figured out only with the initial stage of pregnancy. However, during pregnancy, menstruation can go on at other stages.
And this is already a more serious cause for concern.
- Generally, during pregnancy, doctors consider the disease pathological – their appearance means that the hormonal function of the body is broken, that is, progesterone is not produced in the right amount. This is the cause of bleeding, in which it is possible to detect fragments of the endometrium.
In other words, if there are periods during pregnancy, then the uterus, as before, continues to be cleansed and at the same time can be cleansed of the fetus. The doctor in this case prescribes drugs that serve as a substitute for progesterone and thereby eliminates the threat of termination of pregnancy.
- Monthly during pregnancy can serve as a signal that the fetus is unsuccessfully attached or there is a pathology in its development. This is possible with certain diseases – myoma, endometriosis. An embryo attached in an unfavorable place does not receive enough oxygen, which does not contribute to its normal development.
