What is threatened miscarriage?

A threatened abortion or miscarriage are the same condition. A patient may present with vaginal bleeding or cramping in early pregnancy, but an ultrasound will show a live fetus (baby) and the patients cervix will be closed. The majority of these patients will continue to have a normal pregnancy, but some will progress to complete miscarriage.

Symptoms of threatened miscarriage

  • Currently pregnant

  • Feel like water has broken/amniotic fluid is coming out

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

  • Stomach feels constantly hard and stiff like a board

  • Increased vaginal discharge that is smelly

  • History of preterm labor

  • Fever

  • Feeling contractions very frequently

Questions your doctor may ask to check for threatened miscarriage

  • Are you pregnant?

  • Do you feel like your water has broken?

  • Have you experienced vaginal bleeding or discharge outside of your periods or after menopause?

  • Is your stomach always hard and stiff like a board?

  • Has the vaginal discharge odor worsened recently?

Treatment for threatened miscarriage

A specialist typically needs to confirm the diagnosis. With a closed cervix and normal fetal heart beat, they will generally recommend some form of rest and avoidance of sexual activity till things stabilize. Occasionally a medication such as progesterone may be prescribed.
