Seek emergency help if you have:


1. Monitor Bleeding

  • Put on a sanitary pad or panty liner to keep track of the amount of bleeding.

2. Prevent Further Bleeding

  • Don’t insert anything into the vagina. Avoid sex, tampons, or douching while you’re bleeding.

3. Get Help

  • Call your health care provider immediately to find out if you should go to the hospital or doctor’s office.
  • Tell the doctor or hospital staff if you have heavy bleeding, abdominal pain, cramping, fever, chills, or contractions, or if you feel lightheaded or faint.
  • Put any tissue passed from the vagina into a clean container. Give it to your doctor for examination.
  • A health care provider will examine you for signs of dangerous blood loss and may do tests to confirm the health of your pregnancy.
