What symptoms may indicate that there is a complication with the pregnancy?

By Sarai Arrones.

Risk symptoms are less common throughout pregnancy and can alert a woman that something is wrong. If any of the following symptoms appear, the recommendation is to contact the gynecologist immediately to determine the cause and look for a solution.

  • Vaginal bleeding: slight bleeding may be normal, but an abundant one is worrisome as it may be a sign of abortion or ectopic pregnancy.
  • Pain or burning when urinating: may be signs of a urinary tract infection.
  • acute stomach pain.
  • Very severe headache.
  • Visual problems.
  • Sudden weight gain.
  • Hand and face swelling.
  • Fever.

Also, don't be alarmed at any unusual or uncommon symptoms. It is important to determine when it is something serious and when it is simply an effect of changes in the body. It is common for first-time pregnant women to see a specialist for any variation or discomfort.
