Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now first trimester bleeding is common and can occur in many patients HOWEVER bleeding accompanied by cramps in the lower abdomen which has persisted for 5 days continuously NEEDS to be evaluated. This is because if teh bleeding is fresh red in color then there is a chance of this being miscarriage. Miscarriages commonly occur during the 1st 12 weeks and any bleeding which is persistent and is accompanied by cramping should be evaluated for a miscarriage. So i would recommend that you do get evaluated for this by getting an examination done followed by a beta hcg level in the blood. If the levels are falling or not as high as they should be then it is likely that you may have experienced a miscarriage.
