Bleeding During Pregnancy, Is It A Worry?

By Suparna Chakaraborthy

Yesterday after I reached home, I saw my room-mate all tensed as her sister-in-law, is having bleeding during pregnancy. Usually it is associated by miscarriage. She went to visit the doctor and we were sitting tensed and praying. After 20 long waiting time, her brother called and informed that everything if fine. Now, the family is happy again and her sister-in-law is advised rest. Unsatisfied with the doctors answer, we went on a research spree to look into the matter and found that 25% of the women in India have bleeding during early pregnancy.

Causes Of Bleeding During Pregnancy -

1.Bleeding during pregnancy is caused in the early stages as the fertilised egg implants. With time as the placenta embeds in urine lining, there can once again be a slight bleeding. The blood is slight pinkish or brownish in colour. This bleeding may go on for a few days.

2.The regular periods which girls have depends on the hormonal cycle. If the pregnancy takes place in between the hormonal cycle or just before the time she was supposed to have her periods,she might have bleeding. This happens due background variation in the hormonal cycle.

3.Bleeding during pregnancy is may also be caused due to eruption of infections like vaginal and cervical infections like yeast or polyp. These infections generally might have started at the time of intercourse.

4.Abnormalities in the egg at the time of conception can also be one of the reasons for bleeding. This can also be a dangerous situation which makes it difficult for the survival of the embryo.

Bleeding during pregnancy does require doctors attention specially if it is accompanied with cramps, irritation, fever etc.
