User Profile
Hi, I'm 7 weeks pregnant. I am bleeding(fresh red)from last two days. I went for Ultrasound and i was told there's a perisac haemorrage at the lower pole of baby sac.they noted the cardiac flicker and told me that bleeding is due to perisac haemorrage. From last night I'm experiencing a lot of cramping and when they go worst, suddenly blood comes out. Can anyone guide me along as to what is actually happening?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding that you describe, if occurred around your expected period time, could have been decidual bleeding (few women experience period like bleeding around expected period time during early pregnancy which is also known as decidual bleeding). If the bleeding has worsened and if it is associated with abdominal cramps, increase in back pain, etc, then you should consider reporting immediately to your doctor/gynecologist. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. If pregnancy has been confirmed, you should 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. Repeat ultrasound scan done will also help to confirm the pregnancy viability along with looking for source of worsening of bleeding or any retroplacental bleeding/clots, etc. If required, uterine relaxants can also be started to control uterine contractions that may be leading to placental separation and bleeding. 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.
