Can you have a miscarriage without bleeding?

On many occasions, bleeding is the first sign of a miscarriage. A miscarriage can, however, occur without bleeding or other symptoms that are likely to appear first. The loss of pregnancy is very common within the first weeks of pregnancy. The risk usually declines as the pregnancy progresses. Pregnancy symptoms shift over time and any change would not necessarily signal a pregnancy loss. Women should seek the help of a doctor if they believe that they have lost a pregnancy, with or without bleeding. Bleeding usually occurs when the uterus empties. In a few cases, the fetus might die but the womb does not empty. Also, the woman might not experience any bleeding. It can be termed as a missed miscarriage. It might also happen that the loss may go unnoticed for many days.

Is being pregnant at 37 high risk?

As a woman?s maternal age increases, there is a risk of having more complications in her pregnancy. It is because a woman has a sharp decline in her fertility levels as soon as she crosses thirty five years of her age. As you get older, there are also a number of problems attached with your health that might make it difficult for you to enjoy good health and become pregnant. Some of the probable problems that can affect while you?re pregnant at the age of 37 are ? babies born with genetic defects, babies born with a low birthweight, more chances of conceiving multiple pregnancies, more chances of still birth, failure to give birth naturally, more chances of miscarriage etc. If a woman is conceiving after 35 years of age, then she might require some special prenatal screening tests such as cell-free DNA screening and maternal blood screening etc. to make sure that she can continue with her present pregnancy or not.

I am in the 3rd trimester of my pregnancy. I have been waking up with itchy skin since past couple of weeks. Can it be Cholestasis? Kindly guide.

Well, as though itchy skin is a likely sign of Cholestasis, only 1 symptom won?t do. Don?t confuse yourself. There are alternate or parallel and harmless likelihoods. Apart from only an itchy skin, screen yourself for a variety of other symptoms such as: a. Depression b. Lethargy c. Painful Upper Right Quadrant d. Pale stools e. Dark Urine discharge Get diagnosed for the same exclusively if you have these symptoms.
