Intrauterine hematomas are diagnosed by ultrasound, either during a routine check-up or after a visit to the gynecologist for vaginal bleeding. The doctor will then carry out a more exhaustive follow-up of the pregnancy to observe the evolution of the hematomas. Interdeciduotrophoblastic hematomas do not usually cause pregnancy loss. They are usually reabsorbed and disappear, although if the hematoma is very large it will take longer and the bleeding will be prolonged.
