Subchorionic hematomas, or subchorionic hemorrhages, are common ultrasound findings in early pregnancy. However, their significance is uncertain. Some believe they increase the risk of many pregnancy complications, including pregnancy loss / miscarriage. In a prior study we demonstrated that subchorionic hematoma does not appear to increase the risk of miscarriage in singleton pregnancies.
In this study, we present similar results regarding other adverse pregnancy outcomes – subchorionic hematoma does not appear to increase the risk of adverse outcomes later in pregnancy.
