Hope you are all having a great day. I just joined today and I'm hoping to make new friends here.
I have a 12 year old girl and have been ttc for a second child for a very long long time.
I'm feeling kinda sad today today because I woke up with a period like bleeding after a week of being delayed which by the way never happens to me because I menstruate on the dot. I never tested so I really wouldn't know if it's really my monthly period or decidual bleeding but I'm kind of hoping and crossing my fingers that it is the latter.
What is Decidual Bleeding?
It is a name given to a condition that is characterized by partial shedding of the lining of the uterus during the first three-four months of pregnancy. Decidual Bleeding usually occurs in early pregnancy. According to medical experts, this type of bleeding occurs from the specific part of the Decidua that is yet uncovered by the developing placenta and embryo.
Decidual Bleeding is not common as a medical term. The condition is often simply referred to as “First-Trimester Bleeding.”
This condition is often confused with Implantation Bleeding, which is another cause of bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy. Implantation Bleeding is marked by light spotting, which is a consequence of egg implantation in the uterus. This type of bleeding, much like Decidual Bleeding, can make women have a misconception about their pregnancy and are going through a normal menstrual period. It is due to this similarity that both forms of bleeding are largely regarded to be harmless. Both Decidual and Implantation Bleeding are often collectively referred to as First-Trimester Bleeding.
Decidual Bleeding is not harmful to either the fetus or mother. Some experts indicate that harmless bleeding from the vagina such as decidual bleeding may arise in as much as 30% of pregnancies. Most women who suffer from Decidual bleeding during pregnancy can have normal pregnancy and delivery.
This condition is generally harmless. Bleeding is very common in early stages of pregnancy and is generally not a cause for any concern. Around half of all women who are pregnant suffer from minor bleeding in the initial months of pregnancy.
I have been trying for a year now and still no luck. Do you have any tips or suggestions handy? I'll appreciate any as I'm really desperate to conceive.
