Hi doctor,

Now I am six weeks pregnant. I had two miscarriages before. I have some spotting and brown discharge with clots seen continuous from the fifth week to now. Two days before I went for scanning and a perfect heartbeat was seen, no subchorionic hemorrhage was there. But still, small spotting and clots were seen. What is the reason for this? And will it affect the fetus? Any birth defects? Or any problems? Please answer. Will it end with miscarriage? I have one other doubt, that whether trisomy or other chromosomal abnormalities of the fetus can be identified? How to identify? And which stage of pregnancy it can identify?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please take Progesterone supplements and adequate rest. Avoid having sex and lifting heavy weights, or bumpy drives. If properly treated and taken good supplements, miscarriage will be prevented. Trisomy and chromosomal anomalies can be detected by 12 to 13 weeks and for the rest of the development details can be found on TIFFA scan (targetted imaging for fetal anomalies) around 20 weeks. However, if you have a doubt then get back to me. Take care.
