Vaginal bleeding and utrogestan during pregnancy

Hello... My wife has been pregnant one year ago. Unfortunately, we lost the foetus at week 6. Since now, we have been trying another one. Thanks god, after one and a half year, she is pregnant again. Actually we are at week 3. But she is experiencing a little dark brownish bleeding from her uterus. We just went to the doctor yesterday and said that everything was fine but was unable to explain to us that little bleeding. The doctor also saw a cyst in my wife uterus. He prescribed to us utrogestan 200mg. I would really appreciate if I xcould have some professional opinions on this pls

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Bleeding during pregnancy is not normal, and should not be ignored. If the bleeding is more than just spotting, and has been increasing in intensity, and if it is accompanied with abdominal cramps, then it could be a sign of impending miscarriage. If worried, and if pregnancy has been confirmed, consider getting serial HCG levels checked to see if the levels are rising adequately/doubling up within 48-72 hours confirming that pregnancy is going smoothly. If HCG levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage. Ultrasound scan done at present can help with identifying source of bleeding and also to see if the gestational sac is intact or not. If HCG levels are rising, repeat ultrasound scan done after 2 weeks will also help to confirm the gestational age and pregnancy viability. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid bending or lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long duration and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
