  1. Miscarriages (before 20 weeks of gestation)When you are pregnant and you have signs of bleeding, please come to the hospital immediately because this could be the early sign of miscarriage; it could be threatened miscarriage or ongoing miscarriage.
  2. Ectopic Pregnancies (Pregnancy which occurs in the fallopian tubes). In the case of ectopic pregnancy, instead of pregnancy occurring in the uterine cavity, it occurs in the tubes.
