Subchorionic bleeds are bleeds that take place in the uterus but outside the pregnancy as the fetus buries itself into the uterus. They are the most common and they are the most common reason people bleed in the first trimester. People can have fairly heavy bleeding, but they rarely lead to miscarriage. Before ultrasound, we were not able to diagnose these. With the advent of ultrasound, we can diagnose them and we can put people at rest. Almost certainly, they resolve and allow the continuation of the pregnancy.
