1-irregular ripening of endometrium
2-irregular shedding of endometrium
irregular ripening of endometrium
irregular vaginal bleeding followed by menstruation

progesteron 2nd half of cycle
irregular shedding of endometrium
persistent CL
menstruation followed by irregular bleeding
persistent CL lead to persistent progestrone --areaof endometrium still controlled by progesterone-- late shedding of these areas after menstruation
endometrial biopsy during bleeding mixed but prolifrative dominant
hormonal regulation of cycle

threshold bleeding
estrogen below the level it can maintain endometrium
-birth crisis
-ovulation spotting

clinico-pathologic syndrome characterizeed
-short period of amenorrhea followed by prolonged painless metrorrhgia
-symmetrical enlarged uterus
-bilateral cystic ovaries
- endometrial hyperplasia
-follicular cystic ovaries
any postmenopausal bleeding considered malignant untill proved otherwise,not because it is the most common but because it is most serious

chronic anovulatory condition lead to
estrogen ,endometrial hyperplasia till reaching level canot controlled by estrogen lead to shedding of endometrium

Hydatidiform Molar Pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy

bleeding in early pregnancy

Immediate cesarean delivery if fetal heart rate is non-reassuring
Administer normal saline 10 – 20 cc/kg bolus to newborn, if found to be in shock after delivery

Management – Vasa Previa

Rarest cause of hemorrhage
Onset with membrane rupture
Blood loss is fetal, with 50% mortality
Seen with low-lying placenta, velamentous insertion of the cord or succenturiate lobe
Antepartum diagnosis
Color doppler ultrasound
Palpate vessels during vaginal examination

Vasa Previa

Assess mother for hemodynamic and coagulation status
Vigorous replacement of fluid and blood products
Vaginal delivery preferred, unless severe hemorrhage

Treatment – Grade III Abruption

Assess fetal and maternal stability
IUPC to detect elevated uterine tone
Expeditious operative or vaginal delivery
Maintain urine output > 30 cc/hr and hematocrit > 30%
Prepare for neonatal resuscitation

Treatment – Grade II Abruption

A d & c is done to evacuate the mole
Follow-up care is very important
Tends to be carcinogenic—choriocarcinoma
Recommend no future pregnancies for at least a year
Evaluate HCG levels closely
Chest x-rays at interverals

Treatment and nursing care with Molar Pregnancy

Defined as proliferation and degeneration of the chorion
A benign neoplasm of the chorion
The embryo fails to develop in most cases
Occurs in 1 of 2000 pregnancies
More often in low socioeconomic groups with low protein diets
More often is the younger or older mother

- expulsion of all products of conception.
- Cessation of bleeding and abdominal pain.
- P.V.: closed cervix.
- US: empty uterus.

Complete abortion

Definition: any fetal loss from conception until the time of fetal viability at 24 weeks gestation.
Expulsion of a fetus or an embryo weighing 500 gm or less
Incidence: 15 - 20% of pregnancies total reproductive losses are much higher if one considers losses that occur prior to clinical recognition.
1. spontaneous:
occurs without medical or mechanical means.
2. induced abortion


Apt test – based on colorimetric response of fetal hemoglobin
Wright stain of vaginal blood – for nucleated RBCs
Kleihauer-Betke test – 2 hours delay prohibits its use

Diagnostic Tests – Vasa Previa

Risk Factors – Uterine Rupture

Occult dehiscence vs. symptomatic rupture
0.03 – 0.08% of all women
0.3 – 1.7% of women with uterine scar
Previous cesarean incision most common reason for scar disruption
Other causes: previous uterine curettage or perforation,
inappropriate oxytocin usage, trauma
Uterine Rupture

Can occur with blunt abdominal trauma and rapid deceleration without direct trauma
Complications include prematurity, growth restriction, stillbirth
Fetal evaluation after trauma
Increased use of FHR monitoring may decrease mortality

Abruption and Trauma

With no active bleeding
Expectant management
No intercourse, digital exams
With late pregnancy bleeding
Assess overall status, circulatory stability
Full dose Rhogam if Rh-
Consider maternal transfer if premature
May need corticosteroids, tocolysis, amniocentesis

Treatment – Placenta Previa

Occurs in 1/200 pregnancies that reach 3rd trimester
Low-lying placenta seen in 50% of ultrasound scans at 16-20 weeks
90% will have normal implantation when scan repeated at >30 weeks
No proven benefit to routine screening ultrasound for this diagnosis

Risk Factors for Placenta Previa

Previous cesarean delivery
Previous uterine instrumentation
High parity
Advanced maternal age
Multiple gestation

Prevalence of Placenta Previa

Uterus expands faster and reaches landmarks earlier
More morning sickness
Earlier signs of PIH
Vaginal bleeding in the 4th month
Discharge with grape-like vesicles

Symptoms of a Molar Pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy – complication of pregnancy where fertilized ovum implants outside the uterine cavity.

Most of ectopic pregnancies are not viable.

Heterotopic pregnancy

Localizations of ectopic pregnancy:
-Fallopian tube 95% (ampullary section 80%)

Types of abortion

Threatened abortion.
Inevitable abortion.
Incomplete abortion.
Complete abortion.
Missed abortion
Septic abortion: Any type of abortion, which is complicated by infection
Recurrent abortion: 3 or more successive spontaneous abortions

Bleeding in

Grade I
mild, often retroplacental clot identified at delivery
Grade II
tense, tender abdomen and live fetus
Grade III
with fetal demise
III A - without coagulopathy (2/3)
III B - with coagulopathy (1/3)

Sher’s Classification - Abruption

Bleeding from Abruption

Externalized hemorrhage
Bloody amniotic fluid
Retroplacental clot
20% occult
“uteroplacental apoplexy” or “Couvelaire” uterus
Look for consumptive coagulopathy

Premature separation of placenta from uterine wall
Partial or complete
“Marginal sinus separation” or “marginal sinus rupture”
Bleeding, but abnormal implantation or abruption never established

Placental Abruption

Placenta Previa
Uterine scar disruption
Cervical polyp
Bloody show
Cervicitis or cervical ectropion
Vaginal trauma
Cervical cancer

Causes of Late Pregnancy Bleeding

-ultrasound - the most reliable method of verification of ectopic pregnancy
-levels of β-hCG - more often levels are lower than in normal pregnancy
-culdocentesis (a less commonly performed test that may be used to look for internal bleeding)

Missed abortion

as inevitable abortion

Clinical feature:
- Partial expulsion of products
- Bleeding and colicky pain continue.
- P.V.: opened cervix… retained products may be felt through it.
- US: retained products of conception.

Incomplete abortion

Threatened abortion:
- Short period of amenorrhea.
- Corresponding to the duration.
- Mild bleeding (spotting).
- Mild pain.
- P.V.: closed cervical os.
- Pregnancy test (hCG): + ve.
- US: viable intra uterine fetus.
Repeated U/S

Clinical features/management

Haemorrhage into the decidua basalis.
Necrotic changes in the tissue adjacent to the bleeding.
Detachment of the conceptus.
The above will stimulate uterine contractions resulting in expulsion.


-metotrexate (if the mass is less then 3.5 cm in diametar)
-laparascopy, laparatomy (if the mass is greater than 3.5 cm in diametar, internal bleeding, cardiovascular colapse)


Risk factors:
-previous ectopic pregnancy
-tubal ligation
-tubal surgery
-Kartagener sy.(PCD)

Hydatidiform mole

Ectopic pregnancy


Causes of early bleeding in pregnancy

- Wait 4 weeks for spontaneous expulsion
- evacuate if:
Spontaneous expulsion does not occur after 4 weeks.
- Manage according to size of uterus
- Uterus < 12 weeks : dilatation and evacuation.
- Uterus > 12 weeks : try Oxytocin or PGs
-gradual disappearance of pregnancy symptoms signs
-brownish vaginal discharge
-pregnancy test-ve but may be +ve for 3,4 weeks after death of fetus
-us absent fetal heart pulsation
-septic abortion
