Hi Just looking for some advice. I started bleeding and having abdo pain at 15 weeks. saw a doctor, they heard babies heartbeat which was great. felt the bleeding was due to erosion of the cervix due to hormones and not to worry. however 2 days later am still having abdo pain, not sure what to do

Did they not advise what the pain was about? Is it contraction like or constant? It could be stretching but with it accompanied by bleeding I think you need to be seen ASAP in a&e.

its like period pain. the bleeding stopped th same day i saw the doctor. they never said much about the pain just to take painkillers. but unsure as to how long i should just take painkillers.

So are you currently bleeding or just having pains? I get intermittent period pains too and have been told it's stretching, and I am 25 weeks.

Just pains now, went to the hospital and they said its just stretching, been given stronge pain killers. felt a bit silly.

Don't feel silly, I haven't bled but have had very painful stretching and also went to hospital.

I personally didn't take the pain killers because I wanted to be able to feel it in case it got bad enough that I felt it was worth going back to the hospital again.
Thankfully it didn't.

The docs are probably right so don't worry and I hope you feel better soon smile

With my second, I had strong period pains every four weeks. Frightened the life put of me, but was told it was stretching pains. All was well.
