Blood loss during pregnancy

If you lose blood during pregnancy, you naturally worry. Blood loss in the first 16 weeks of pregnancy occurs in one in five women. With half of these women the blood loss ends after a few days and the pregnancy continues normally. With the other half, the blood loss persists and there may be a miscarriage. This means that the embryo (the fruit) is shed.

Always call in case of blood loss
If there is a blood loss, call us. The practice nurse or midwife asks you questions about the blood loss, any abdominal pain or other complaints, and the suspected or determined period of pregnancy. This conversation usually takes place by telephone. Then be discussed whether it is useful, for example, to have an echo made.

We guide you through a miscarriage
When it is determined that there is indeed a miscarriage, we will guide you until it is completely over. We will explain to you, among other things, about awaiting a spontaneous course or a referral to the gynecologist for treatment. Here (Dutch site) you can find more information about a miscarriage.

When to contact us directly?

Contact our practice directly with one of the following symptoms:

  • If the blood loss is severe and can no longer be compensated with a sanitary napkin, certainly in case of complaints of “seeing stars” or fainting
  • If the abdominal pain increases and is constantly present
  • If you get a fever (higher than 38 degrees Celsius)
