    i'm 5 weeks tday and yesterday i had a transvaginal ultrascan as i was having some brown spotting and sharp pains. my hgc bloods were 4000 and there was a sca in the womb but was too early to see anything else. the nurse said everything looked very healthy apart from a small cyst on right ovary

    then a couple of hours after the scan some red blood gushed out of me, not a lot but enuf to stain my trousers, this was followed with brown light bleeding and some light cramping.

    is this a miscarrage or from the transvaginal u/s?

    i had a miscarrage before and the cramps or bleedig is nowhere near as bad this time?

    Hi,

    I had the same as you when I had an internal. A few hours later i had bright red bleeding, i could only put it down to the internal I had. Ive been bleeding all the way through my pregnancy though, it stopped around 20 weeks so is looking good at the moment.

    Try not to worry.

    T xx

    I had an internal and although I didn;t bleed or cramp afterwards, the scan was because of bleeding. Like Tiggy, I've had episodes of bleeding throughout too but I honestly don't think an internal scan could cause a m/c. I don't think the probe goes in far enough to do any damage and they are always very careful upon insertion anyway. :)
