My LMT was on 20 october and i took MMR vaccine on 22Oct. I didnt got my period next month. Then on 6 December i was hopsitalised due to stomach aches and little bleeding. The ache and bleeding stopped after 2/3 days and i was discharged. My HCG levels were monitored next few days and they were climbing up. I had an Ultra sound on 16 Dec that showed i am weeks and 4 days pregnant and my expected date as 14 August. Also in the Ultra sound report a subchoroinic haematoma was seen adjacent to gestational sac with coloume of 47cc. The foatal heart rate of 106bmp was noted.

I want to get some serious advice on whether to continue pregnancy or not? I am thinking due to rubella vaccine i am going through this..

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear about your pregnancy. Subchorionic Hemorrhage could have many outcomes as it is the most common abnormality in the presence of a live embryo.

Here is some more information from EMedicine: In women whose sonogram shows a subchorionic hematoma, the outcome of the fetus depends on the size of the hematoma, the mother's age, and the fetus's gestational age. Rates of miscarriage increase with advancing maternal age and increasing size of hematoma. Late first- or second-trimester bleeding also worsens the prognosis. The presence of sonographically detected subchorionic hemorrhage (subchorionic hematoma) increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, abruptio placentae, and preterm labor.

You should certainly watch this very closely with your physician. Can you please keep us updated?

Here is some more information for you.

Best of Luck,
