Hello, I'm 30 years old woman currently 10 weeks pregnant. I have had 3 miscarriages
before, 2 chemicals and 1 loss at 5-6 weeks. Have been tested for thrombophilia and APS and ANA, all good (except heterozygous for MTHFR A18..). This pregnancy
going great until 10 days ago when after a perfect ultrasound at around 8 1/2 weeks (173bpm), I've started mild cramping
. I've cramped for days, then on Monday I've started bleeding and have been bleeding every day since then. Some days heavy with clots, red
blood, other days brown or dark red blood. Cramps have continued usually only on my left side and very localized and very intense. This left side pain alternates between acute when it feels like something ripping off the uterus
to more chronic when it's just
a dull ache like a horrible sqeeze. Every time that left pain becomes acute I bleed more intensely. I also have occasional cramps in all the uterus which have become more intense over the last days. I went for an ultrasound this Friday expecting to have lost
the pregnancy but it was still there, the baby measuring correctly and good hearbeat 168. I have a big subchorionic hematoma
, blood in my uterus, a 3.6cm fibroid on the left side of the uterus right where I feel that intense pain/cramp and possibly a septum
or arcum of the uterus. I will attach a photo of the fibroid (upper picture) and the baby. The problem is ever since yesterday's prodding and poking at the doctor's the pain on the left has become very intense (8/10) and continuous, I've started having occasional
and cramps in the whole uterus around 6/10 and I'm feeling overall extremely unwell. I've started bleeding fresh blood again and filled a large pad overnight. I could barely sleep because of the pain. The doctor recommended I take antispasmodic
(drotaverine) but I've been taking it for a few days now and it's not helping much. Neither does paracetamol. I've read online that when fibroids undergo red degeneration they can bleed and release prostaglandins into the uterus which can cause contractions
and eventually miscarriage. I've read that ibuprofen is effective against this but there are also conflicting studies whether it causes miscarriage or not. The truth is with how increasingly horrible I'm feeling I can't imagine not ending up miscarriaging...
should I take ibuprofen, is it an option? I can't speak to my doctor as he is out of town until next Wednesday and I feel my situation is progressing quite quickly. I can't get out of bed and my pain is not subsiding only increasing. Please advise me, is ibuprofen
useful in this case?
