The first and most significant symptom for which a woman suspects that she may be pregnant is that she does not get her period. However, she must be careful and not trust herself because, even while pregnant, she can continue to bleed, especially during the first three months.
The bleeding that occurs in the first months of pregnancy is in no case about menstruation, since menstruation as such in that period is impossible. We are then faced with what is called decidual bleeding, it corresponds to the detachment of a part of the uterus walls and is due to an alteration in the hormones of pregnancy. Although it generally does not generate any danger to the health of the mother or of the baby, it is necessary to monitor it and inform the doctor in case it could be a more serious disorder.
Other causes of bleeding in pregnancy
- Implantation bleeding: A hematoma occurs on the wall of the uterus when the embryo adheres, some veins break and thus causes bleeding.
- Organic memory: The functions of the menstrual cycle are reproduced automatically.
- Ectopic pregnancy: It is one that develops outside the uterus because there is an obstruction of the fallopian tubes that prevents the passage of the egg.
- Abortion: One of the first indications that the pregnancy has ended is bleeding accompanied by abdominal pain. It is very important to see a doctor if you have these symptoms.
- Stress: Carrying the same rhythm of life as before pregnancy can cause slight bleeding. The best thing to do is relax and be pampered!
