Closed cervix and bleeding, how is that possible?

Index

It is not uncommon to see reports of women who are pregnant for a short time, even before completing 8 weeks and who have had bleeding. Any leakage bleeding during the first weeks of pregnancy is very worrying, due to the risk of miscarriage. However, bleeding during any stage of pregnancy is not normal.

The first attitude in these cases is to resort to the emergency of a maternity hospital to check what is happening. However, once there, the doctor does all the necessary tests, including touch and diagnosis: Closed cervix. But how does bleeding happen if the cervix is ​​closed? Why does he appear? Am I at risk of miscarriage? Is it a sign of childbirth when pregnancy is at an advanced stage?

The breakthrough bleeding may occur for various reasons, usually the external bleeding is the explanation for when the cervix is closed. The main reason for bleeding when the cervix is ​​closed is the rupture of some vessels in the cervix due to its growth.

The uterus has several vessels and veins full of blood, it swells a lot during the beginning of pregnancy , and this swelling can force the small vessels to rupture. This rupture causes bleeding to come out of the vagina giving the false impression of bleeding from inside the uterus. The vagina is an organ also full of vessels, when pregnancy happens, it swells a lot and if one of the vessels ruptures inside the vagina, bleeding is possible.

Another reason for bleeding even when the cervix is ​​closed is nesting . Implantation bleeding can happen in several cases and, when exiting in large quantities through the vagina, can also frighten the pregnant woman. Usually, this type of bleeding occurs within a maximum of 6 weeks of gestation and is perfectly normal, but it is an alarm.

In addition to implantation, another reason for bleeding even with the cervix closed is the placental fixation. Unlike the implantation of nesting , bleeding in a more advanced stage, about 10 weeks, may be through the placenta clinging to one of the walls of the uterus.

This bleeding in pregnancy can happen around 10 weeks because the baby has the support of the vitelline vesicle, which after fixation of the final placenta, starts to wither until it disappears. When the placenta actually takes over the nutrition of the fetus, it is already fully implanted. In this case, it is possible for the woman to have a small amount of blood even when the cervix is ​​closed. These bleeds mentioned above do not carry a risk of miscarriage.

Even With Closed Uterus, Which Bleeds Are Concerning?

The bleeding that is most worrying is the abundant and bright red aspect. If you have pieces then you should be evaluated as soon as possible by the doctor. Usually an ultrasound can detect the reason for this bleeding, but clots are a sign that the endometrium, necessary for pregnancy is coming out in large quantities.

Therefore, the doctor must evaluate the possibility of medicating the pregnant woman and putting her to absolute rest, including with sexual abstinence. This heavy bleeding, even with the cervix closed and accompanied by many cramps, can be a sign that the pregnancy will not go ahead due to the risk of miscarriage , so talk to your doctor and ask his honest opinion about your condition.

Brownish, elastic, and bleeding-looking bleeds are also recurrent. These bleeds can be caused by a low concentration of progesterone (a hormone secreted by the corpus luteum and which is responsible for the integrity of the endometrium). If this hypothesis is raised, the doctor will supplement the amount of progesterone with the use of appropriate medications such as Ultrogestan for example, to keep the cervix closed and the endometrium intact .

In more advanced pregnancies (or not), it is possible to bleed after intercourse. This bleeding is possible due to the rupture of blood vessels in the vagina or cervix. It is not a worrying picture. It can also happen if the woman has a placenta previa, she will provide constant bleeding, but without greater risks to the pregnancy.

It is recommended to pay a visit to your doctor or emergency if you have any signs of bleeding. It may not be a big deal, but it’s always better to check what’s going on.
