Bleeding in Early Pregnancy

Bleeding in Early Pregnancy: The Next Steps

If, in early pregnancy, bleeding occurs, an ultrasound will be performed to see if the fetus is alive. It can also help predict if the pregnancy will continue or lead to a miscarriage. Your healthcare provider might also do some blood tests to see what the placental hormone levels are.
Naturally, most couples will worry about the long-term implications of bleeding in early pregnancy. Unfortunately, there are no assurances that the pregnancy will continue normally. However, ultrasound and testing of hormonal levels can provide a fairly reliable picture of the potential outcome of the pregnancy.
