Blood clot-- Pregnancy (Help Please)

I am 43 and got pregnant after acupuncture and trying for more than 5 years. I am in 11 weeks now and got ultra sound done today. They found a blood clot in the uterus. Last week had Pap smear and started bleeding heavily when doctor did the exam. They were planning to send me to emergency but when doctor put pressure for 20 min on my cervix, it stopped. Now and then see very light spot but no heavy bleeding. Is there any medication to dissolve the clot of its own? I have one child 10 yrs old. I was trying to get pregnant since last 5-6 yrs but no treatment worked till now. Started IVF treatment 4 years back. IVF told me I have very high FSH and can never be pregnant again. Got pregnant two years back with Ayurvedic medicine but miscarried within 5 weeks twice. Second miscarriage was very severe and caused fibroids. Suffered with very heavy bleeding for two months. Took pulsatila 200 and got immediate relief in 4-5 days. Everything was normal after that. Also, any medicine to reduce any child birth defect risks. I will be doing CVS too sometime next week to see for any genetic disorders. Any help for the will be greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Soumya Please take arnica 200c 2 pills/drops three times. Report changes in week.

Also get Sabina 30c/200c, Viburnum Prunifolium Q. They may be of use but do not use them yet without getting directions.

Thank you very much Maheeru!
Yesterday I started taking Pulsatilia 30 (since it helped me earlier) till I saw your reply.
I have started with Arnica 200 but after doing some research on this medication, I am little scared. It says pregnant women should not use it as it can cause miscarriage. Please advise.
This is my only chance of having another baby. I am not bleeding or spotting since last 2-3 days and there is no pain. I am just little nervous of taking this medication. Any comments will be appreciated.
Regards,

Maheeru,
Thanks for going into details! I really appreciate your help and support. I tried to answer the questions in as much detail as I can, if you have further questions, please let me know.
Also, I took arnica today and will continue for a week as advised by you. Is it okay if I take pulsatillia 30 too side by side or can it have any –ve effects? Also, if there is any other medication, I need to buy please let me know. I have an appointment next week with a genetic counselor and most probably I will get scheduled for CVS exam sometimes next week. Also I have my regular OB/GYN visit next week and if my OB/GYN got the results of my sonogram, I will ask him in detail regarding the size of the clot and their next step. If you need some specific info you are looking for to be asked from my OB/GYN, pls let me know. If there is any medication for the proper health and brain development for the child and can be taken side by side then please let me know. Regards,

Not sure of this one. Last week I had too much stress to deal with, I think that added to my problem. Like listening to music and spending time with my daughter and husband.

Are you worse on any particular side of the body ?

Just wanted to add few more things:
I get cramps in leg and toes in cold weather.
Also, cannot remain in water for a long time. I like swimming but get cramps if I am in swimming pool for a long time.
I had the problem of shooting pain in the legs started when I was 22-23 yrs old. I did long homeopathic treatment. Got reduced when I was 30 yrs old. Now experience this pain once in a while especially if I do lot of walking or exert myself a lot. Experience this pain near my periods.
Thanks,

Ok soumyaa will get back to you after reviewing the details.

About arnica 200c, it's not to be taken through out the week. Restrict the doses to the maximum of three. Do not take pulsatilla this week.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
Maheeru,
Just wanted to update you that yesterday I had my ob/gyn appointment and there was no heartbeat for the baby. Today it got confirmed with another ultrasound. Not sure what happened between last and this week.
Doctors are not sure if it is due to blood clot or some abnormal chromosome. They will do some testing after D&C. Is there anything I can take to come out of the emotional stress? Thanks for all your help.
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
Sorry about that soumyaa. My thoughts are with you. Please take Ignatia 200c one dose...it will help to cope with the emotional stress.

My feeling is that it's due to the abnormality with the chromosome.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
I got D&C done on Friday last week. Since yesterday evening, I am feeling constant cramps & severe backpain. Is there anything you can prescribe to normalize everything and speed up the recovery process. I am taking tyneol for pain relief but not getting much help.
Constant bleeding not very heavy though.
Regards,

Take a dose of Nitric acid 200c. Will help with your symptoms. Report after a few days.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
My first cycle after d&C (April 10, 2011) was long for about 9/10 days in May, 11. I started spotting again on June 01 and continued for 7/8 days. Now bleeding is not stopping at all. Since last 2-3 days it is getting heavier and heavier. I am taking pulsatillia 30 since last 2-3 days with no help. Pulsatillia was advised to me by a homeopath earlier after my second miscarriage in feb 02, 2010.
Can you suggest something to normalize my cycle?
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
Soumyaa

Did you take nit. acid as was suggested? Was there any beneficial effect after you took that?

Stop other remedies and take Ipecac 200c two doses per day for two days and report the changes. While you report also describe the nature of discharge and associated symptoms if any like pain, cramps or even emotional symptoms.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
Actually I did not take nitric acid as it was not available in the nearby store. Everything got normal naturally. I did take advil (pain killer) for cramping as suggested by my ob/gyn.
I have pecacuanha 30 at home. Can I start with that? Actually I live in USA and to get homeopathic medications immediately is little tough for me.
The bleeding is bright red with clotting. It reduced yesterday night but again it was heavy in the morning. Now it seems like it is reducing but not 100% certain.
Thanks for all ur help!
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
It has increased with heavy clotting. Also going through work related stress. Did not get any sleep yesterday night.

Refer to the above thread to find out sources where you can procure remedies. You can also try to purchase remedies from health food stores.

If you had taken nit.acid at that point of time, things would have been different now.

Ipecac 200c is important. While you wait for it, you can take ipecac in 30c three times daily for a couple of days.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
Okay I took a dose of ipecac 200 today. How many times a day shall I take it?
Thanks,
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
Twice daily for 3 days. Welcome.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
Dr. Maheeru,
I am not seeing any improvement in my situation. I am getting lot of clots. I am feeling stressed and down. Please advise.
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
Please take Belladonna 200c thrice daily for next 2 days and report the changes.
 
maheeru 8 years ago
Okay, Thanks!
Can you please provide with list of other medications, so that I can buy them all together particulary for this very situation?
Also, I feel depressed and down since last few days.This health issue is making me more frustrated. My apetite has been reduced a lot.
 
Soumyaa 8 years ago
add calc. carb. 30c and 200c, phos. 30c and 200c.

Last time when I consulted in this forum I was having non stop bleeding with heavy clots. My previous history is in the thread above.
Bleeding did not stop with any of the medications prescribed. I consulted homeopath in Delhi. She advised me hemamilis 30, which stopped the bleeding for a week. I went to India for 3 weeks in July and got treated from her but not much relief from clotting and heavy bleeding.
Medications tried are belladonna 200, pulsatilia 30 , hemamilis 30, kali phos and some iron tonic (hematone).
In August, started course given by homeopath but spotting and light bleeding was always there.
Sept 3, 2011 heavy bleeding with clots
Sept 10 took hamamelis 30
sept 13 took bio combination 11(ferrum phos 3x/kalium muri 3x/kalium sulp 3x/natrum muri 3x/natrum sul 3x) , which stopped the bleeding.
but again on sep 27, 2011, slight spotting started.
Took hamamelis 30 (suggest by homeopath): big clot in the morning of sep 30, and oct 1.
Currently taking pulsatillia 30, hemamilis 30, kali phos 6x and not sure of others as they were prescribed by a homeopath.
While in India, did ultrasound, nothing got detected.
Suffering from very bad infection.
In July had another issue of feet swelling. Swelling was there for 3 weeks in July while in India. Now there is no swelling but some pain in the feet and get tired very easy. Low homeoglobin (I guess)

Please advise to normalize my cycle.
