When a woman has bleeding during pregnancy, the first thing to do is to inform the specialist. The specialist will assess whether the situation requires the woman to go for an in-person check-up. However, if the bleeding is heavy or accompanied by abdominal pain or dizziness, the pregnant woman should go to the emergency room as soon as possible.
The obstetrician-gynecologist will investigate the possible causes of the bleeding and will tell the woman how to proceed, since the possible treatment and indications to stop bleeding in pregnancy will depend on the diagnosis that has been established.
In any case, the woman should avoid sexual intercourse and the use of tampons while bleeding and it may be common to be advised to rest. However, it will be the specialist who will give the appropriate indications after having obtained a diagnosis.
