Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

This could possibly be a miscarriage - but without any tissue passing and just light bleeding and spotting then this is just a 'Threatened' miscarriage - which is very COMMON and many women go on to have perfectly normal pregnancies with this type of light bleeding

Dr Owen :

hi

JACUSTOMER-rc44wwhz- : Hi dr Owen
JACUSTOMER-rc44wwhz- : hi dr
Dr Owen :

If you have more questions, please ask

Dr Owen :

but you really do not need to be frightened - this spotting is very common to see

JACUSTOMER-rc44wwhz- : hi is there anything I can do to stop this and how long do u think it will b for it to turn into a loss if that's what's going to happen it started about 11am yesterday. I have been exercising and working long hours could this b a factor
Dr Owen :

there is nothing you can do unless your progesterone level is low - and if it is low, then have your doctor prescribe you progesterone such as prometrium

Dr Owen :

Stress, Anxiety, exercise, Sex CAN cause spotting

Dr Owen :

I hope this helps

Dr Owen :

Dr Owen :

Thank you

JACUSTOMER-rc44wwhz- : Is this loss only classed as spoting I have none in my underwear also I have dull back ache like a tooth ache doesn't sound good does it
Dr Owen :

spotting is fairly normal - so Unlikely a miscarriage

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

try to relax

Dr Owen :

and have your ob/gyn do an ultrasound on you this coming week

Dr Owen :
