Bleeding with First Pregnancy Increases Future Pregnancy Risks

By JustMommies

According to a new report found on Reuters Health, women who experience first trimester bleeding during their first pregnancy are at higher risk of having pregnancy complications with future pregnancies.
The Danish study, published in the journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, looked at the records of women who had bleeding during their first pregnancy and then compared their records with their second pregnancies.  About 2% had bleeding with both their first and second pregnancies.  Women who had bleeding during their first pregnancy were at a higher risk of having complications including preterm labor, placental abruption, and premature rupture of membranes.
The researchers believe that pregnancy bleeding may be somehow connected with preterm labor, placental abruption, and PROM (premature rupture of membranes).  
Doctors may want to monitor women who have had first trimester bleeding more closely, according to this study’s finding.
