Several decades of conventional wisdom taught us that ‘25% of all pregnancies will experience bleeding in the first trimester and of those half will miscarry’. Such women were often told to go home, put their feet up and that they had a 50/50 chance of the pregnancy continuing. Although these statistics are very close to accurate, modern practice allows us to tell such women much more. The outcome, however, will usually remain the same. A biochemical pregnancy has been defined as a pregnancy detected by assays of serum hCG but one that has failed before it can be clinically recognized (as bleeding then occurs at or around the time of the expected menses).
