6 weeks pregnant bleeding and no baby on scan?

I was spotting first pink blood now after 4 days it's bright red. Cramps are either non existent or mild cramps. No heavy clotting. Just very small stringy bits sometimes. Has anyone experienced the same?

I had an internal scan done today and there was no baby or no sac. My womb was empty and it showed bleeding. What could have gone wrong? She said it's either gone earlier on ( I never noticed) or hiding or to early to scan. Hiding meaning it could ectopic. Any advise with anyone experiencing similar? I should be 6 weeks 4 days. Feeling sad but just want answers. Even starting to think maybe the whole pregnancy was in my head. But I had two positive tests. And I've had a pregnancy before. Not even sure why I'm bleeding.

Hi, sorry you're going through this. Are you sure of your dates? At 6 weeks pregnant with an internal scan I would definitely expect to see at least a sac at the minimum. However if your dates aren't accurate then it could just be too early. Bleeding can be indicative of early miscarriage but can also be normal, scans are usually the best way to determine what's what but in your case it's still uncertain. Have they booked you in for a rescan?

Sorry to hear that OP. Did they take bloods for HCG? They'd usually repeat in a few days to see if the level is rising or falling. What are the next steps? Another scan?

I've had two ectopics but they were live with heartbeats and visible by 6+4 and ruptured

If your hcg levels are still rising then it's most likely an ectopic but if you are bleeding then it's a sign your body is trying to repair itself x
