Also question is, what does it mean by threatened abortion?

A threatened abortion is vaginal bleeding that occurs in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bleeding is sometimes accompanied by abdominal cramps. These symptoms indicate that a miscarriage is possible, which is why the condition is known as a threatened abortion or threatened miscarriage.

Furthermore, does threatened abortion mean miscarriage? Definition. Threatened abortion is a term used for vaginal bleeding and symptoms that suggest that a woman is at an increased risk of miscarriage during the first 3 months (or 20 weeks) of pregnancy. While some women will have bleeding in early pregnancy, a woman may or may not miscarry.

Also, how long does a threatened abortion last?

More than half of women who bleed during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy will stop bleeding and continue to have a healthy pregnancy. For the other half of these women, cramping and bleeding worsen and they will eventually miscarry.
