Is bleeding in early pregnancy normal?

Q: I am a 21 years old, 6 weeks pregnant woman having some discharge and bleeding. I consulted my doctor who said that the bleeding was normal but I have a high-risk pregnancy. She also said that my uterus was too small. Can that lead to a miscarriage? Is the bleeding normal?

A:Early pregnancy bleeding can result in miscarriage and you need to take complete rest, avoid weights and coitus, and ease anxiety. If the bleeding stops, which it can in over 50% of cases, repeat scanning is done to make sure the fetal heart is present and also there is no post decidual bleeding. If the fetus shows growth and bleeding stops, pregnancy can advance normally with a slightly higher risk of a premature delivery. Sometimes, medicines like HCG inj 5000 units weekly, given till the 16th week, help if the fetus is alive.
