I am 3 weeks pregnant and have started bleeding it is bright red and I am cramping but there are no clots. The bleeding started on the exact date that my next period was due, Can someone please tell me what this means?
Have you had your pregnancy confirmed? i had a m/c in april i was 5 weeks preg when my bleeding started there was no clots just bright red blood after a day the bleeding stopped then about a week later started again.
I am sorry to hear that you had a m/c yes my pregnancy was confirmed by two different doctors. I had my HCG Levels tested last week and they were 69, I am going this evening again to have them tested. Will the bleeding affect the HCG Levels?
Bleeding during pregnancy is never a good sign. Of the 25% of women that bleed while pregnant, half of those go on to have a miscarriage and the chances of a miscarriage increase if the bleeding is more than "spotting", accompanied by cramps and/or clots.
I want to prepare you for the fact that its possible you are experiencing a chemical pregnancy. This is when a women has a very early miscarriage and in many cases wouldnt even know they are pregnant because they are very early on into the pregnancy and bleed about the time their period is due (so mistaken the bleeding for a period).
i bled at 8 weeks, 9 weeks and 18 weeks...first 2 times were because of an STI i did not know about as well as stress and third time was unexplained...good luck... you are very lucky to have found out at 3 weeks.. at 3 weeks pg i had an ultrasound and nothing was detected..at 6 weeks i found out by an hpt which took 2 weeks to turn positive.. 2 weeks after my expected period...
