How to recognize false menstruation during pregnancy
It is not very unusual for a woman to have menstruation-like blood loss at the beginning of pregnancy, like a real cycle. It may be false menstruation due to embryo implantation in the uterus, harmless that does not cause any problems. But there is also the possibility that these are serious disorders that will lead to a miscarriage.
In any case, blood loss during pregnancy is not necessarily linked to an interruption. The causes of the false cycle can be different, from the breaking of small varicose veins to changes in the uterus at the time of entry of the fetus. The important thing is to know how to recognize them: let's see how.
False menstruation can occur in different ways, and vary from woman to woman. They present themselves as an abnormal menstrual cycle, ie it can happen that the flow is more abundant, or on the contrary, slight blood losses can occur.
Unlike the normal menstrual cycle that lasts from 5 to 7 days, false menstruation lasts 2-3 days. In general, they are accompanied by classic symptoms of the menstrual cycle such as abdominal bloating. In most cases this blood loss occurs at the beginning of the first trimester of pregnancy, and normally occurs on days when the normal menstrual cycle is expected.
