Medical Video: How common is bleeding during first trimester(early pregnancy)? Is it normal? Dr. Sreeja Rani
What are the things that cause spots when pregnant? With the presence of spots when pregnant, it is clearly frightening for a prospective mother. The blood spots, can trigger a million questions about the existence of the fetus and the health of the pregnant woman herself. In some circumstances, spots are considered normal, but still spots during pregnancy are caused by something that does not work properly.
Basically, one in five pregnant women will experience spots during pregnancy during the first trimester. After that, spots in pregnancy begin to decrease with increasing gestational age. Adult conditions and proper handling can prevent unwanted things. The following are some of the causes of spots that usually occur during pregnancy.
The cause of spots during pregnancy
1. Implantation bleeding
In early pregnancy, implantation of the embryo into your uterine wall causes blood spots, and occurs in 20 to 30 percent of women experience. This usually occurs before or after you menstruate.
2. Sex or touch in the vagina
During pregnancy, your cervix will become soft and enlarged and filled with blood vessels. If something enters (penis, finger, tampon, or other medical device) in the area of the vagina and uterine wall, this will cause bleeding that causes spots. Sometimes these touches can irritate the vaginal wall area which can cause bleeding or spots.
3. Vaginal infections
Bacterial vaginosis in the vaginal wall, often causes infection and discomfort during pregnancy. When inflammation occurs the vaginal wall will cause irritation and there may be a little bleeding until the discharge of blood spots on the vagina.
4. Suborionic bleeding
Subcorionic bleeding during pregnancy occurs because blood clots sometimes occur within the placental layer. But often, the blockage will heal itself. There are no specific risk factors for this suborionic hematoma. But if you have previously experienced this condition, it is likely to happen again in the next pregnancy.
5. Pregnant outside the womb
Ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy outside the womb is a condition that occurs when the fertilized egg does not move to the uterus, but attaches and grows in the fallopian tube. However, in an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg does not move to the uterus. This can cause mild bleeding in the vagina and cause spots.
6. Wine pregnancy or mola pregnancy
This pregnancy is often also called molar pregnancy or hydatidiform mole is a noncancerous (benign) tumor that grows in the uterus. Although not a baby embryo, the growth of these cysts will still trigger symptoms of pregnancy, so many sufferers think he is pregnant. This condition is fatal and requires immediate treatment.
