Early pregnancy can be an exciting yet daunting time, a lot of women experience common signs of being in the first trimester such as a missed period, tender breasts, fatigue and nausea. However, symptoms like vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain can be concerning.
Our multi-disciplinary team of expert gynaecologists, fetal medicine specialists and obstetricians work together so you can rest assured knowing you will receive safe, integrated care and support for you and your baby.
Vaginal bleeding at early pregnancy can vary from light spotting to heavy bleeding. In the majority of cases this is not critical to the mum or the baby, however every woman who experiences bleeding in their first trimester of pregnancy is required an ultrasound scan to rule out any complications.
In early pregnancy as your baby grows you may experience pelvic pain/discomfort. This is a normal symptom of early pregnancy. However, if you feel severe and persistent pelvic/abdominal pain this could be a sign of early pregnancy complications such as an ectopic pregnancy or spontaneous miscarriage. All patients with pelvic pain will need to have an ultrasound scan in our diagnostic centre on Wimpole street.
