A:   Hello,
If you are pregnant and you are experiencing bleeding per vaginum then it is an emergency and you are experiencing a threatened abortion. You should immediately report to ER to get a transvaginal ultrasound done to look and check for fetal viability or confirmation of inevitable abortion.
Any bleeding in pregnancy is considered ominous unless proven otherwise.
Please visit ER asap.
