hematoma in the uterus

A bruise in the uterus is particularly common in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Depending on the location and size of the hematoma, it can either be harmless or dangerous for the pregnancy. The hematoma is often caused by the implantation of the embryo in the uterus. In addition, the bruise can also be caused by the different rates of growth of the uterus and the lining of the uterus.

Typical symptoms of a hematoma in the uterus are abdominal pain and bleeding. If you experience such symptoms during pregnancy, you should consult a doctor or have yourself examined in the hospital. Here, it can be determined whether the cause of the symptoms is a hematoma in the uterus.

If such a hematoma is present, the pregnant patient is usually prescribed bed rest. Magnesium, which relaxes the muscles, and progesterone, which promotes the resorption of the bruise, are often given in addition. In most cases, the bruise will go away over time. Especially in the early phase of pregnancy, a hematoma in the uterus can also trigger a miscarriage.


Hematoma on the knee

A fall while doing sports happened: The following day, the knee was swollen, it hurt, and a big bruise had formed. Fortunately, this usually heals on its own after a few days – the healing process can be promoted by cooling and elevating the affected area.

If bloody effusions occur more frequently in the knee, this can increase the risk of joint arthrosis in the long term. If the hematoma is very painful or the symptoms do not go away after two weeks, you should see a doctor.

Hematoma after surgery

Bleeding increases during an operation, which is why bruising often occurs afterwards. To avoid excessive formation of hematomas, drainage tubes are usually placed in the wound during surgeries to drain the blood resulting from postoperative bleeding.

The development of hematomas after an operation cannot be prevented despite drainage. Such a bruise usually heals on its own after two to three weeks. If this is not the case or you notice severe swelling of the affected area, you should contact your doctor.
