Bleeding After Vaginal Ultrasound??? Lilly Pedraza Due April 19 (girl); 16 kids; Lubbock, Texas 64 posts
3rd Jul '11

I am a bit concerned about vaginal discharge and heavy spotting after my vaginal ultrasound. I had a brown discharge since Thursday after the ultrasound, but Friday it became bleeding only when I wipe myself after going to the restroom. I went to the ER on Friday and I came out with more questions than when I went in. The nurse at the ER told me that I should be at 10,000 hcg and I'm only about 4-5 wks pregnant (My dr cant pinpoint an exact wk since the baby doesnt have a heartbeat yet and I have always been irregular.) My sister and cousin who are nurses told me that the 10,000 is inaccurate and that I should be at a minimum of only 426 hcg at this point. My hormone levels seem to be ok according to them at 766 hcg and my cervix was intact as well. They did tell me though that I had a 50/50 chance of miscarriage and that their is nothing I can do to stop it. I was put on bedrest until I can see my OB GYN.I now have to wait till Tues to be able to see my OB GYN so that he can draw blood and make sure my hcg levels are doubling/increasing. My friend told me she went through something similar and was told it was implantation bleeding, it happened to her at 6 wks and again at 8 wks. I have a few light cramps but nothing serious which I also had when I went to the ER. I am still bleeding when I wipe sometimes light red, sometimes a little darker. I'm also wearing a pad because I have stained my undergarments a little bit, but its not a heavy flow. They gave me papers on what to expect if I do miscarry and so far I don't have those symptoms (heavy bleeding that stains one pad per hr, severe cramping, fever, and chills) .Has anyone else experienced something similar, this is my first pregnancy so I really dont know what to expect, and I tend to freak out alot. :-/

The number isnt as important as whether or not its doubling. Especially early on.

And spotting is normal after a VU, I would have them check your levels again tomorrow though.

Thnx so much. I'm going back on Tuesday since thats when the Dr office will be open due to 4th of July. I don't have any cramping anymore, but have had it throughout the pregnancy and was told it was because of all the changes in my cervix. I just feel so frustrated cause everytime I go the the restroom I still see blood when I wipe. I'm literally not doing anything other than laying with my feet elevated since Friday and just get up to go to the restroom or to eat.

I finally get to see my Dr tomorrow. I'm feeling pretty frustrated and depressed not knowing what is going on. I still have spotting everytime I go to the RR and using pads to not stain my undergarments. The pads only get light bleeding, not very much. I also have light cramps on and off. Has anyone else experienced this for sevral days after a vaginal ultrasound?

My appointment didn't go well. I didnt have the little sac anymore, nothing in my uterus. I apparently had a complete miscarriage after having what they called a chemical pregnancy. I didnt even find out when the actual miscarriage occurred. I lost my baby. :-( I'm a bit distraught but understand that God needed my angel with him. I dont question his will in any way, and hope to one day be blessed with having a baby.
