7 Causes of Vaginal Bleeding During Pregnancy | What Cause it?

7 Causes of Vaginal Bleeding During Pregnancy | What Cause it?

It can be frightening if you start bleeding during pregnancy.

However, blood loss doesn’t always mean you could be experiencing a miscarriage.

Bleeding during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, is more common than you might think.

According to a study, around 25% of participants reported bleeding during pregnancy, and 8% of women reported heavy bleeding.

Most incidences occurred between weeks five and eight, and in most cases, lasted no more that than three days.

Of the women who experienced bleeding, 12% had a miscarriage, compared with 13% of women who did not bleed.

While most women will have one incidence of bleeding, a small number of women will bleed throughout their pregnancy. It can take the form of spotting, streaking, or period-like blood loss.

Here is everything you need to know about bleeding during pregnancy.

Do I Need To Tell My Doctor Or Midwife About Any Blood Loss?

Yes. All bleeding during pregnancy should be reported to your doctor or midwife.

Any passage of blood from the vagina before 24 weeks of pregnancy is termed a threatened miscarriage or threatened abortion. After 24 weeks it’s termed as an ante-partum haemorrhage.

You especially need to see a doctor or midwife within 72 hours of any bleeding if you have a rhesus negative blood group (e.g. O-, A-). The reason for this is to check whether there has been a possible mixing of your baby’s blood with yours. If the blood has been mixed, it may cause your body to produce antibodies against positive blood.

A positive blood group is more dominant than a negative blood group. It’s most likely your baby will inherit a positive blood group, although you won’t know this before the birth. The blood mixing doesn’t have any bearing on your first pregnancy. But for subsequent pregnancies, if you have another baby with positive blood, your antibodies would attack what it thinks is foreign matter.

See our article on rhesus negative blood groups during pregnancy for more information.

Below is an explanation of some of the more common reasons for bleeding during pregnancy.

As you will read, it’s not always sinister. It’s possible to experience mild cramping or stretching sensations during a healthy pregnancy. But if there is bleeding accompanied by strong cramping, speak to your doctor or midwife as soon as possible.

#1: Implantation Bleeding or Streaking

When a fertilised egg attaches to the uterine lining, it can result in light spotting or streaking (streaks of blood). Usually it lasts only a day or two and occurs around the time of implantation or when your period would have been due.

Some women mistakenly think they have simply had a light period and don’t realise they are pregnant.

#2: Breakthrough Bleeding

Some women experience what is known as ‘breakthrough bleeding’, during the times when a period would have normally been due. Therefore bleeding would appear at around 4, 8 and 12 weeks of pregnancy. It’s often accompanied by the feeling you would normally associate with your period being imminent, i.e. backache, cramps, a heavy sensation in the pelvis, feeling bloated and ‘off’.

Of course, because you are actually pregnant, your period doesn’t arrive (even though you feel like it will). During pregnancy, hormones prevent your period from occurring. Sometimes, if the hormone levels are not yet high enough to stop your period, the result is breakthrough bleeding. It can last for about three months; after this time the placenta begins to take over hormone production from the ovaries.

Some women experience breakthrough bleeding throughout the pregnancy, and under the close watch of their carer, have healthy babies.

#3: Threatened or Actual Miscarriage

Studies indicate that around one third of pregnancies end in miscarriage (the medical term is spontaneous abortion).

That sounds like a huge number, but don’t despair. It refers to the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, and includes very early miscarriages which occur before a woman even realises she is pregnant. A miscarriage of this kind is often a result of a damaged fetus; it means a woman’s body is rejecting a pregnancy that is unable to survive its complications.

Once you have reached the 14-16 week mark, you can be fairly sure your pregnancy is safe. It’s probably not such a bad idea to refrain from telling the world you are pregnant until you reach the 12 week mark.  Although you might be bursting to share your wonderful news, it can be very distressing to have to break the news that you have lost the pregnancy. Sympathy is often comforting, but sometimes it can be overwhelming when you are grieving for lost dreams.

Common signs of miscarriage include bleeding (most common), cramping, backache and stomach pains. Women commonly say that they no longer ‘feel pregnant’ when they have miscarried and are bleeding. The signs of pregnancy disappear – no more nausea, sore breasts or bloated tummy. If you are bleeding and feel this way, then chances are you have lost the baby. If you’re bleeding but still feel pregnant, the chances are very good that the bleeding is just a scare and your baby is fine. An ultrasound will usually be reassuringly normal.

It is possible to miscarry without any bleeding. This is known as a ‘missed abortion’, where the fetus dies but is retained by your body. The signs of pregnancy would definitely have disappeared if that happened, but the absence of a heartbeat would only be detected using ultrasound. You might need a curette to clear out the uterus.

For more information, see our article, Miscarriages – Saying Goodbye Before You’ve Said Hello.

#4: Bleeding After Sex

Bleeding after sex is one of the most common causes of bleeding during pregnancy. It’s completely harmless and is caused by increased blood supply and softening of the cervix.

Although this form of bleeding is not serious, you should always report it to your carer. When you phone the maternity ward, be prepared  for the very personal question, “Have you recently had sex?”

You don’t need to stop having sex, but you might need to reassure your partner that he hasn’t hurt the baby, who is safely protected in your uterus, well above the vagina.

Also see our article on Bleeding After Sex During Pregnancy.

#5: Ectopic Pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when your fertilised egg implants itself outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. You might experience severe pain down one side of your abdomen, or generalised pain which doubles you over, and you might feel faint and nauseous. The pain can  disappear suddenly if the tube ruptures but it will return within hours or days and you will feel really unwell.

This is an emergency situation. An ectopic pregnancy can rupture the fallopian tube and cause internal bleeding, damage to the tube and maternal collapse. Your fallopian tube might have to be removed, along with the pregnancy, but it does not mean you will have trouble conceiving in future, provided your other ovary and fallopian tube are healthy.

For more information, read our article on Ectopic Pregnancy.

#6: Bleeding From The Placenta

Another question you may be asked if you phone your healthcare provider is: “Have you had a scan, and was the placenta situated normally?”

Painless vaginal bleeding can result from an abnormally placed placenta. Sometimes the placenta implants itself very low down on the uterine wall, and occasionally right over the cervix. This is called placenta praevia and it occurs in about 0.5% of pregnancies.

Placenta praevia will inevitably result in bleeding at some point in your pregnancy – usually after the 20 week mark. There are differing degrees of severity of this condition, but they all require repeat ultrasounds for an accurate diagnosis. To prevent risk to your baby, the condition might require bed rest, an induction or c-section if the placenta remains over the cervix in the remaining weeks of pregnancy.

Another cause of bleeding later in pregnancy is placental abruption, where the placenta partially or completely separates from the wall of the uterus. It occurs in approximately 1 in 200 pregnancies. Symptoms include generalised severe pain and heavy bleeding. The blood might be visible or concealed in the uterus, which will be tense, tight, hard to the touch and very painful. If you smoke, or have high blood pressure, kidney problems or pre-eclampsia, you are more at risk. The condition requires urgent admission to hospital, and depending on the severity of the bleeding, you might be prescribed bed rest, an induction or a c-section.

#7: Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are masses of compacted muscle and fibrous tissue, which can be found inside or outside the uterine wall. They can be either problematic or unproblematic during pregnancy — it mainly depends on the location of the fibroids and if they grow or not. Experts aren’t sure why, but pregnancy hormones can cause fibroids to either shrink or grow.
Fibroids are best removed prior to a pregnancy, because worst case, they can cause ectopic pregnancy, heavy bleeding and pregnancy loss. However, many women are able to give birth without any problems too.
If you have fibroids, it’s important to see a specialist to manage your individual case and suggest what to do next. Avoid cures found on the internet – you really need to see a specialist to receive a proper assessment of the situation.

What Should I Do?

If you are more than 20 weeks pregnant, seek medical advice immediately.

Do not use tampons if you experience bleeding during pregnancy; always use pads. If the bleeding is light and you have no pain, contact your midwife or obstetrician to discuss the next step.

Once you’ve been checked by a medical professional, you could seek out an experienced acupuncturist who is a specialist in fertility or pre-natal care. There are some points that can be treated to help you with bleeding and energy in that area. Acupuncturists work with patients who have had recurrent or threatened miscarriage so it might be worth a try. It’s a safe, natural and healthy option.

Heavy Bleeding During Pregnancy

If the bleeding is heavy (i.e. flowing out and you are passing clots) and is accompanied by stomach cramps, backache and period-like pain, contact your hospital immediately. Quite understandably you will be upset, but try to remain as calm as you can and remind yourself that bleeding can occur in pregnancy. It is your blood, not the baby’s blood, that you’re seeing, and it’s quite possible to continue with a healthy pregnancy.

Don’t be surprised if the advice you receive for bleeding in early pregancy (before 12 weeks) is to just watch and wait.

What If I’m Experiencing A Miscarriage?

If you’re experiencing a miscarriage, unfortunately nothing can prevent it from occurring. Although a miscarriage can be disappointing, upsetting and emotionally painful, there’s nothing you can do but take care of yourself emotionally and physically.

You are not responsible for a miscarriage happening, and you have not done anything to cause it. You cannot prevent a miscarriage from ocurring, but there are things that will help you to feel more physically comfortable.

  • Bedrest
  • Paracetamol/Panadeine/Naprogesic (a drug designed for period pain) for the cramps
  • Hot water bottle for your tummy
  • Tea and support from your partner

You might pass the developing fetus and other tissue, then the bleeding will then stop. But if you continue to bleed, you will need an anaesthetic and a curette to ‘clean out’ your uterus.

Remember, in most cases, bleeding in early pregnancy settles spontaneously and the pregnancy continues unharmed.

  1. I had a tubal ligation after my last almost 3 years ago. My periods were normal. Then I missed 3 or 4 months then I had one that was light and lasted 3 days then this month is normal. However I have many pregnancy symptoms but all the tests I’ve done say negative. I have not been to a doctor due to not having insurance. What’s going on?

    1. There are usually free clinics or mobile clinics to do a pregnancy test and ultrasound. You can google it or call 211 for help finding one. If you have low income and end up being pregnanct you will probably qualify for Medicaid to help pay expenses–211 can help you with this as well.

  2. Hi, I recently found out I am pregnant. My dates have me at 8 weeks. I have a dating scan next week. I have experienced brown spotting/discharge for 3 weeks now. No pain. Has anyone had this?

    1. Yes, I have experienced the same, mine had stopped recently for two to three days now . I have a dating scan tomorrow. Heaps of rest seemed to help me as every time I got up and did something it would start again.

      1. Hi sapphire seems we kind of have the same problem with the moving around and all and relief with yours?

        1. Hi I was trying to write my own thread.. so I am now 9 weeks pregnant . I have had complications all ready. Since I found out was pregnant 4 weeks ago so 5 weeks pregnant I have been bleeding everyday all most. Some cloty, some dark brown and some bright. It is realli confusing. I had a scan 7+2 saw fetus and heart beat. And today I got another as still bleeding and in pain . But if it is fine why am I bleeding so much. I have endometriosis could that be the cause? I don’t know if this pregnancy and s the right thing atm as it’s causing me discomfort some days can’t sit down. And other days being sick 3 am . I have 2 children all ready and I didn’t experience anything like this before. I have had miscarriage before its similar but not the same . So confused 🙂

          1. Hello Becky, I had my own experience this week with bleeding that resulted in a miscarriage. It started with a dark brown spot. I called my gynecologist and she says spotting is normal. The next day it became a light pink color and i had to wear a pantyliner. the third day it became darker and more like a period and I put on a pad. By the fifth day I was wearing two pads and passing hugh clots. i called back my gynecologist and she told me to go to the emergency room. When i got out my car i felt a hugh gush and I ask to use the restroom. I found a hugh clot on my pad and i flushed it and clean up myself as i had blood running down my leg. I did a vaginal ultrasound. When the doctor came in to see me, he told me I had a miscarriage. I was seven weeks pregnant. I had three previous pregnancy and never had this experience, so seek a doctor as soon as the bleeding starts. Don’t wait.

          2. I am not sure about this I have had pinkish/ brownish spotting for 3 days lilight bleeding when I wipe but it feel like it’s gushing and its not no pain though and passed a clot everyone said its normal so far I says it’s normal I did this in the begining with my first pregnancy did years ago

They said it could be early cause my bff is 160 so I am def pregnant. I get more blood done Mon to see us it has risen. 3 more days of waiting, bleeding & worrying. I already think I’m misscarryin cause I have twice b4 but like I said it’s bad but not as bad as the others. So confused!

          5. My names bec too. And I too have had bleeding and clotty blood and pain, but my last tests sed the baby (2+1/2mnths old) is fine. I find out more on Monday. But its got me a bit worried. Thought I’d miscarried 2nights ago. But I hadn’t. Good luck

          6. This same thing is happening to me know some clots brown and red a d bleeding for a week now I’m 8 weeks 2 kids already I’ve had a miscarriage in August of last year. I’ve had 2 vaginal ultrasound amd.both found a strong heartbeat but I won’t stop bleeding I have no idea what’s going on

        2. Hi ladies,

          I dont know if i should still be excited or devistated.

          Three days ago, i thought i was starting my periods. It started really light. The following day was really unusual as it was still light.

          After some internet research, hubby and i got a pregnancy test which came out positive & the following morning the same. Positive.

          Later that evening i experienced a gush of bleeding. The following morning the same thing.
          We then booked an ultrasound & doc said there wasnt a sac. It could be too early or a miscarriage… 🙁

          I’m bleeding almost as if i am on a notmal period. I havent fekt any cramps or pain and my breast feel super tender.

      2. How long did the bleeding go did it ever stop? Im dealing with the same thing it starts up when im at work or if im just walking around. Did you go through your pregnancy with all of that going on?

        1. Hi i started bleeding at 12 weeks gone. I have light heavy clots all sorts. Dark red brown light red and pink. Some days are better than other days. Doesnt

          1. Hi I’m a little scared I had two miscarriage and now I’m pregnant with my third 7 weeks and 1 day couple of times pass small blood clots and vaginal hurts a lot is it normal for the vaginal parts to pain

          2. Please ring your midwife they wil give you the number for the early pregnancy unit I was the same at 8 weeks pregnant and to listen to others to tell me it’s normal is not the answer I miscaried yesterday and was not a pleasant experience I started with a bit of brown then followed by stringy bits of brown then pinkish on the tissue only when I when the to the toilet though when I wiped this was over the space of 1 week I rang the midwife she booked mi in for a scan which was yesterday the morning of the scan it turned pink watery to blood waited for the scan I started getting cramp pains she scanned me but couldn’t see anything so was told to empty my bladder for an internal camera examination as I was on the toilet I lost a bit of blood then followed by a clot I flushed the toilet and went back into the scanning room and told the lady what had happened with the look on her face it told me all but still had to have the camera scan done there was nothing I had just flushed my 8 week old baby down the toilet am absolutely devastated so please get checked out I wouldn’t want my experience happening to others who were told not to worry it’s normal it isn’t normal please get the midwife phoned today my love the sooner the better and hope everything’s ok xx

        2. Well I have the same problem I was told I was pregnant by my doctor but its like every time I move around I bleed and when I’m laying down I’m fine…I wanna know is this normal as well..

          1. I just found out I’m pregnant and I feel like my period is coming and I had brown spotting. I called in my gyno and he said as long as it’s light brown and not a continous flow, I shouldn’t worry. I still worry. My second daughter I bled for 3 weeks and continued to having a healthy baby. Unfortunately, under 6 weeks they can’t do a vaginal ultrasound.

        1. With my 1st pregnancy in 2006 I experienced vaginal bleeding like a medium flow period of mine had come on. Had scan done same night and baby was fine it was about 9 weeks old and I was told the cervix was closed. Bleeding had stopped after 9 hours. Then the pregnancy progressed up to the 11th week scan were I last saw him alive again. Then at 17 and half weeks I had a missed miscarriage, I had no symptoms of blood or bad pain. I was not aware at all that the baby had actually died at his 15 week age. He stayed in me up to that 17 weeks ever so peacefully giving me no serious symptoms. I kept saying to my midwife that please check the baby because I have a “feeling” like something was wrong because I wasn’t feeling like I was pregnant anymore. She would just insist that Ian fine and it’s my first baby so I will feel it move ect late and I should not worry. But I knew all along for about 3-4 weeks before finding out that sadly he had died. Then it was me who decided that I need to go into the hospital and get this situation checked, so I followed my instinct and it was true that he had died and I had to give birth to him. The pregnancy went on to 17 weeks, but his body was a 15 week body after postmortem results told us and the cause was rupture of membrane. It was very sad and extremely traumatic to have to give birth to our dead baby, not an alive baby. So I would strongly advise that any bleeding at any time of the pregnancy should always be reported straight away to your g.p or nearest a&e if it’s night time as when I had the 1 incident of the bleeding at 9 weeks I was told even though the baby was fine and moving that (there was no guarantee) that the pregnancy will continue but it was fine for the current time. So please do go with that “gut feeling” and follow your instinct if it really is strong and saying something is wrong.

      3. I’m five weeks+ and it’s happening the same with me if I keep resting I’m all fine but as soon as I start working I will have pink discharge in wiping off.
        My dating scan is scheduled on next week I hope everything is well.

      4. Hello did they ever figure out why you had to bleeding did your pregnancy turn out okay I’m experienced that now every time I get up I start to bleed but no cramping not in any pain at all

      5. Hello my name is EVELYN am 12weeks pregnant i started bleeding am worried about my baby first it started as Brown discharge now it’s blood with clots am scared it’s my first baby and also am having cramps pls help

    2. I’m experiencing the same brown discharge no pain but I’m 5 weeks pregnant should I be worried ? I am bleeding here n there very lite though ????

        1. Hi I am also 5 weeks pregnant but started bleeding yesturday (Wednesday) it was brown the pink too red and has been a steady amount so far ( not enough to fill a sanitary towel) and is still the same today. I went to the doctors and they said to just wait and see what happens either way. As you can imagine I’m anxious but in no pain other than lower back pain which iv had so far anyways. I took four positive tests on Sunday two of which were clear blue and said 1-2 no if I wait and take another one on Sunday and it says 2-3 would that be a good sign that my levels are going up and everything’s ok?

      1. My name is Sheila I’m 6 weeks and 6 days they told me I was having a threatened abortion I had a little bit of strict blood earlier today twice but I didn’t see a Sac or anything I’m worried myself because they said it’s a threatened abortion and they told me to lay in bed on bed rest I’m laying in bed but I’m still bleeding does that mean that my baby’s going to be okay I see my OBGYN tomorrow

    3. Hi, I’m 8 weeks now an have pink spotting with tissue like substance in and off for the past two weeks. Had a scan a few days ago and all went well. Heartbeat was clear but still bleeding

    4. So I have no kids I had 3 miscarriages in a row within 1 1/2 years. I had fibroid removal along with removal of endometriosis in march 2015 just found out I’m 4 weeks pregnant Friday. I now have very light spotting that has varied from bright red to brown I am extremely scared has anyone else had this my hcg levels are 1200 as of Friday

      1. Did your pregnancy continue without complications? I am in the hospital right now with bleeding at 7 weeks and looking for hope

      2. My name is Sheila I have had this going on it’s going from light brown to light red to dark red yesterday I was bleeding very heavy they did an ultrasound and said the baby was okay that I was having what’s called a threatened abortion what it means is that you have a possibility of having a miscarriage and you need to be on bed rest try to rest in bed you may bleed if you move around but as long as you don’t see anything that resembles a sack or a baby or even an embryo any grey or pink tissue you should be fine I had a string of red blood earlier but my doctor says I’m fine my HCG levels are at 13,699

    5. I’ve been spotting brown on and off. Just had a vaginal ultrasound yesterday at 6w3d and today I bled a lot more dark red blood for a few hours then it stopped. Heart beat was at 130 yesterday. I’m really worried after being on cloud 9 yesterday…

      1. Alina, I had the same thing happen to me yesterday! First ultrasound with a healthy heartbeat and then lots of bleeding about 12 hours later. Is your pregnancy still healthy?

        1. How did your situation turn out? I had a vaginal ultrasound at 6 weeks. A few hours later I had staining, and 12 hours later I had bright red bleeding, which is still happening 3 days later. I feel fine, I made an appt for a week from now. My OB’s office seems unconcerned.

    6. What happened? I am 8 weeks now and experiencing the same thing. My Dr. Sent me for bloodwork on Monday and again tomorrow to compare hcg levels to see if my pregnancy is progressing. Then the office will be closed for New Years so I have to wait a week to hear anything.

      1. Hi Melissa how did your results go, I was in the ER yesterday with the same thing I scheduled an appointment with my Dr. So he can check my hcg levels agains but that will not be until next week, I’m so freaked out!

    7. yes even me i have the same thing but i had never been to a doctor cause my friend told that she had the same thing but the doctor said the baby is okey,sometimes i bleed light blood n its been 3 weeks now so i dont know wheather to be worried or.can some one help please?

    8. I’m 8weeks pregnant and also spot brown but only when I wipe! Its been going on for 3days and today at work (I walk all day) I wiped and it was bright red I drank more water (about 6 water bottles) and it was back to light vary vague brown . I went to the doctors and did an ultrasound and saw the baby’s heart beat and everything seems to be normal! She just said its normal dark blood means old blood! But I don’t think its normal ….if I’m laying down I don’t bleed but when I walk and move around it starts again!

    9. Yes I had experienced dark discharge with some slight back pain around 8-10 weeks and I called the doctors office. They told me it’s normal but later found out that I suffered from what is known as a missed miscarriage. I didn’t find out till my routine three month check up that the baby had no heartbeat. Please don’t be nervous. Everyone is different. Looking at the date, I hope yours wasn’t the case. I am currently pregnant again and at 11 weeks. Didn’t experience any of that yet.

  3. I’m 6 week pregnant. I been bleeding for last 5-6 days. It is moderate bleeding. I had another Us done today and my gynec said she saw lot of blood in my uterus around the baby. The baby is safe though with decent heartbeats for a 6 week. She did not have any other answer for me except to wait and watch! So waiting for the bleeding to stop! 🙁

      1. Hi Rita, i have the same problem, bleeding for 7 days now, no pain, 5 weeks pregnancy. Went to Early pregnancy last week, they did not see baby heartbeat yet as too early, but going tomorrow for second scan. Not sure what they are going to see as the bleeding worries me. Please let me know how are you now?

    1. Hi, I had the same. It’s a sub chronic hematoma- normally clears by 12 weeks and the blood is re absorbed by the body. I was put on bed rest for the first few months and given hormone injections to help baby grow past the risky stage. This is something most of Europe does but the UK does not as they do not normally scan so early, therefore would not pick up on the hematoma.

    2. hi,
      i m 6 weeks now and have stared experincing spotting for about 10 days now. i have had 2 episodes of heavy bleeding as well. no pains though. i rang my doctor and they did check my hcg level evrytime which is rising. but the bleeding still wont stop. it gives me stress all the time.

    3. Was everything ok………….I’m not sure how far I am but the doctors say they don’t know either but I’m bleeding and I have no pain.just lower back like always but I’m sooo. Worried I do what’s happening…I have 2 other children and didnt have any problems like this…..

  4. I’ve done 4 home pregnancy tests and went to the doctors and made sure if it was for real and I was pregnant and I went to an ultrasound and they couldn’t see anything and I didn’t get my period that month I fell pregnant but a week after I had bleeding

  5. I am currently 12 weeks and have been bleeding in various amounts since week 2 (or conception). I initially put it down to an early period starting till a 6 week ultrasound showed I was pregnant. Since then I have had spotting till week 8, then a decent bleed, back to spotting then a big bleed at 11.2 weeks, with passing lots of clots and a large clotty thing (about 2cms x 4cms).. The doc does not know why i am bleeding yet. I am living on tender hooks.
    I have had 4 previous misscarriages, then two births. My first child i had a blood clot in the uterus and knew the reason for the bleeding.
    I guess as painful as waiting is and as helpless as we all feel, we have to trust our bodies will do what they humanly can. Best wishes too all.

  6. Hi im going through a blighted ovum right now this will be my 2nd miscarriage in 6 months😢 I had a miscarriage last October I was 7 weeks 3days. Now on March 13 I found out I was pregnant and a few weeks later I started spotting and went to the ER and they said I had a blighted ovum I guess they weren’t able to see a fetus just an empty sac. I was so disappointed again and couldn’t stop crying that whole night. 2 days later I follow up with my doctor and he said that he doesn’t want to jump to a conclusion that I’m having a miscarriage that there was still hope since my hcg level was rising but not doubling. I have another ultrasound next week and I’m praying to see my baby and his heartbeat 😁🙏 but deep down I know I will miscarry because I been bleeding/spotting for a week nothing too heavy just a little lighter than my period and also been having lower back pain and don’t feel pregnant at all😢

  7. Hi I found out I’m pregnant. About 5weeks now I have us next week but scared because I have noticed a light brown discharge is this normal? I am having no pain but two years ago had an ectopic pregnanc. Its so to not. Worry please if anyone. Has been threw this?

    1. Hi
      Can you please follow up on the progress of your situation, I have something very silimar gapping to me now, and I had a topic pregnancy 2 years ago, one tube removed and endometriosis taking care of as well.
      I’m sporting all kinds of red tones – mostly brownish but sometimes red, pink too. I noticed when I’m more active I bleed even more. I feel bloated and feels like about to get period by not exactly in pain just uncomfortable.
      My numbers are doubling but still spotting
      I’m about 4-5 weeks I think
      Thank you

  8. I am 5weeks with light to moderate bleeding. I have all normal test results for a healthy pregnancy. Still awaiting to see why I’m bleeding. This is day three.

  9. I’ve took about 7-8 test (I know sounds crazy) All were faint lines but one was digital and said pregnant 1-2 weeks. Found out Thursday and Friday had light pink blood and now into Saturday it’s much heavier, however my husband and I did have intercourse last night .. ironically AF is due today … no idea what to think …

  10. I am 5 weeks pregnant and yesterday started spotting a brownish color. Not needing more than a panty liner but has been continuous. Should I be worried?

  11. I’m 7 weeks and have started to bleed off and on for the past 3 days. Needless to say I’m a wee bit stressed. I have had two previous mcs. Went to the ED and had blood work and a scan , dating was spot on (6.5 weeks) FHB 134. Unlike my past pregnancies that ended in mcs the dating scans were off by two weeks. But I’m still spotting from brown to brick red blood, only when I wipe. Can this be placental implatation bleeding , any thoughts

  12. I’m 5wks4days, 3 days ago I started bleeding but it wasn’t accompanied by any pain, it stopped on the same day too. I’m still having pregnancy symptoms but I’ve got an appointment tomorrow to check my hcg levels because they were just over 300. Anyone else experience this and still went on to be pregnant? I’m scared and anxious about tomorrow because I’ve had previous miscarriages.

    1. Right now I am 5 weeks with light spotting I had an U/S and they said it was too early to really say yes or no and my hcg was 256

    2. Hi I m in 5weeks 5 days….but I started spotting light brown blood but later it was darker nd now sometimes red…..Its been 3 days with no cramps…and I was admitted immediately at hospital . …had blood test nd sonography…they can see only sac as it was early…nd my hcg level dropped a bit but again checked my hcg aftr 2 days it increased ..doctor said we hav to clean it if ur hcg level decreases.but it increased so I was asked to go home nd be in bed rest….need to have another blood test within 2 days….praying to god that my hcg level shld hav increased.Nd there should heartbeat in ultrasound…bcz its my first pregnancy…fingers crossed….

  13. Okay so my girl friend is 4 weeks and 2 days and we had sex yesterday and later on she was bleeding could it be spotting or Could it be us from having sex .. Also this would Be our first child

    1. Probably but if she is experiencing cramps or lower stomach pain that could mean miscarriage. It could also be the egg attaching to the uterus. That happened to me with my first. If she has miscarried there isn’t anything you can do to stop it. Just hold her hand and let her know your there for her. Good luck.

        1. I agree with Jennifer .. cramping is normal Throughout your whole pregnancy. I am in my 5th pregnancy and cramped with all.

          As far as bleeding from sex: this is completely normal. Tears can be made to the vaginal wall that you cant see and all of your tissue is soft bc of the pregnancy so its more possible.

      1. It been three moths bleeding haveay blood but lasted for 2-3 days after mising my perio. I want a serious help on whats going on.

  14. Im 6weeks pregnant and have been expirencing spotting for 5days now.My doc. said it could be infection.Im taking antibiotic but still seeing the spotting.Pls help me

    1. I’m 5 weeks now. Been having brownish spotting for 7 full days. My gynae gave me antibiotics. The spotting hasn’t stopped. I noticed that it happens when I’m having some sort of activity. When I’m resting,it doesn’t happen much. The doctor says it’s common and it won’t harm the baby. The only panic would have been if there were blood clots.

  15. In my first pregnancy I bled heavily at six weeks. It turned out to be a subchorionic he matoma which threatened the pregnancy until week 13 when it disappeared. My baby delivered one month early due to pre eclampsia. She’s a healthy 15 month old.

    This pregnancy I’m 6+3. I spotted pink and rust six days ago. They didn’t know why. Ultrasound found a sac and structure. Bled again yesterday red with small clot more than spotting. Ultrasound today shows quickly growing fetus with heartbeat appearing viable. Hormone levels dipped slightly but in normal range. No blood in uterus so no one knows why.

    I’m just putting this out there so people don’t assume all bleeding is miscarriage. Im 38 and both pregnancies achieved with in vitro.

  16. ive been having very painful and cloty period for the last two months. I used to have normal periods until when I started trying to concieve. When my cirlcle is due iget brownish spotting for few days then later heavy bleeding with clots. Could this be missed implantation.

    1. Hi Jay,

      I have same symptoms as you. How did you go? Were you pregnant? I feel like I am pregnant. Tests say negative though. I had normal periods I started trying to conceive. When I’m due I get brownish spotting for few days then later heavy bleeding with clots.

  17. Hi there, I’m on the pill started it in January. Haven’t missed a day however before and after my period last month which started on the 4th placebo pill I’ve Had pregnancy symptoms.. Anyone else experience this or is there a chance I am? Was light to moderate bleeding.

  18. I’ve been bleeding light pink blood for about 3 days now only 1 clot but nothing since that one. I’ve miscarried before and I’m scared that’s happening again. However my hcg levels are rising. I’m currently being closely watched by my doctor because I am high risk and so far she doesn’t know why I am bleeding. Can anyone tell me why??

    1. Hello everyone,
      Today my period is due & my man and I have been having unprotected sex … We’re not trying or preventing to have a baby, but I’m concerned about whether or not I’m pregnant because I heard and have read you can bleed lightly , but it’s not a period ; by the way my mom bled for five months carrying me… Anyway is it possible to bleed (light pink blood) when your menstrual is due and still be pregnant? I’m only concerned now since my breast/nipples are sore|itching and are huge like crazy! I’ve never experienced that b4 or during my period. Mind you a week after my last period I spotted, became extremely bloated, very gassy & had indigestion, which I also never had can someone PLEASE explain to me?

  19. I am 5 weeks and yesterday I started bleeding and its day 2 and I’m very nervous. Went to the e.r yesterday and blood work was performed and everything seemed to be normal but its really nerve-wrecking because in my first pregnancy I experienced spotting but nothing like I’m experiencing now. There is no pain, cramping, or nothing of that nature but just kinda scared because it seems like its too much blood and I may b overreacting but I’m stuck because I do not know what to do and I’ve been to the e.r already

  20. I am almost a month along with my little one. I just recently had rough sex earlier and I started to lightly bleed. The doctors office wont be open till tomorrow but my doctor has no openings till next month. Is it okay to bleed after rough sex or should I go in to the er to have them look at me. I’m scared. Someone please help me!

  21. Question, I hadn’t found out I was pregnant when I started bleeding very heavy last week clots and all. We thought I must be having a very early miscarriage.stopped bleeding sat. Even if this hadn’t happened a test still really shouldn’t show for another 4-5 days. My breast still continue to get enlarged and even more sore which has always been my indicator with my other 3. Tested today and it was a very dark positive!! I’m so confused!

    1. I am having this same problem. Scared to take a test because I do not want to be disappointed. I had all of the symptoms of being pregnant and then started bleeding Monday at what the doctors would say is 4wks. It lasted for 3 days and today it is only present when I wipe (just a light pink, barely there). I still feel pregnant, breast are still sore, still urinating more, have a slight pain, every once in a while on the right side in the abdominal area, and still getting light-headed. Not sure what is going on.

  22. As you may think , if the bleeding is not enough to use a pad, you will not need to worry. As possible as you can, pls take rest and if the condition become serious, don’t wait for your doctor, better go to others.

  23. I am not sure if I’m pregnant or not but I have had the symptoms for nearly 5 weeks now, but I started bleeding 2 days ago.. I went tithe doctors and had a urine test and blood test as the last 4 home test have come back negative.. I have the pain and everything.. Is it normal?

  24. Hi I found out a few days ago that I was pregnant and today I got up and have been experiencing quite alot of bleeding. No clots but quite dark and fresh blood. I am/was 5 weeks. My breasts don’t feel as tender as they were yesterday when I was definatly pregnant is this an indication that its probably a miscarriage. I am confused because having no pain or cramps but heavy bleeding with no clots

      1. Im going through the same thing i have all the symptoms and all but im bleeding dark and it has no clots and im not cramping or in terrible pain im not even sure if im pregnant i havent took the test yet but im scared idk if its a

  25. i am 5 to 6 weeks pregnant and have been bleeding moderately for the last 4 days but it’s only when I move around my doctor never said what can cause it just that some women spot and he gave me progesterone suppository I’m still really confused why the bleeding when I move around does anyone have any advice please?

    1. I am 6 weeks and have been spotting/ light bleeding for over a week now. This is my third pregnancy and the same thing happened with the others at different points throughout the pregnancy. Having said that, I have 2 beautiful daughters. It never becomes less scary and it’s all I can think about right now.

      1. Same here i’m 8weeks pregnant ,but been bleeding for 7 days now enough to fill a pad for a day .I meet my doc and she said the babies are fine .but i’m still worried ,why wont the bleeding stop.

  26. iam 8wks pregnant 2 days ago look like I have my period bright red blood next day a few little bood clots went to hospital for blood work there unsure if I have miscarried or not first day had bad cramps but I also had bad diahorra 2nd day only mild period pain have to wait a day for ultra sound im so nervous this is my second pregnancy first one miscarriage immediately early

  27. Hi ladies, I’ve found out I was pregnant at 10 dpo via preg test and have been doing one or two every morning after that (clear blue, first response and cheapies) for a week. Every day the lines have been getting significantly darker which is great and I’ve been having mild period like cramps, back pain and sore breasts. But now at 4 weeks exactly, I’ve started having brown discharge and it’s getting darker-my period usually starts this way! I’m freeking out here and I am worried my period will start anyway!
    Is it even possible for it to start if I have HCG hormone in my body?
    Anyway I try to think to myself that whatever’s supposed to happen will happen and if the embrio is healthy and strong it will stay. Nature is always right and knows what to do…
    Take care everyone and good luck x

  28. I am 10 w today and yesterday I ran to the er room due to bleeding I am wondering can this be normal ? My breast don’t hurt like yesterday all this scares me I can’t even sleep at night some advice please

    1. Hi I am having the exact same as you. Heavy bleeding but not like a full period. And my breast are no longer sore or heavy. Was everything okay with you?

    2. How did you make out? I am 9.5 weeks and have heavy-ish red bleeding but no pain. Hopefully will have a scan tomorrow but freaking out now.

  29. Hey all, I’m five weeks pregnant and for almost two weeks I have had moderate bright red bleeding accompanied with blood clots, only small ones. I have had the worst cramps of my life to the point I can’t stand up. No nausea or vomiting just intense pain that I can’t move. I have also had some back pain here and there. Any ideas what is causing this?

  30. My partner and I are trying to have a baby and are using at home insemination and a donor as we are both female. We did a trial insemination on March 19th and I had a period a week later (I knew the chances of concivieing were extremely slim as we have been tracking my cycle.

    The period was heavy for 12 hours and completely dry for 12 hours. This occurred over 4 days. It’s never happened before. I assumed it was my period and even took a test after to make sure and it was negative. A few days after my boobs began to feel extremely sore and grew a cupsize in a week. The soreness lasted 3 weeks. I couldn’t even touch my boobs they hurt so bad. I have had slight nausea and also extreme fatigue for the last month. I took a test and it was negative and then my period came when it was supposed to. However it only lasted 3 days and was heavy 12 hours and dry for 12 hours again .

    My doctor sent me for blood work and I’ve been waiting over a week for the results. I’ve even called the Dr and was told my results aren’t in yet.

    Can somebody please help me? Am I having a false pregnancy? I am literally 50/50 both ways. I’ve never felt this way in my life and my stomach just started to swell 3 days ago.

    I can’t wait any longer !!

    I am 22 years old and this is going to be my first Pregnancy. I just can’t bring myself to believe it’s true.

  31. Well i’m 12 weeks tomorrow, and have been bleeding bright red with some clots for 3 days now. not heavy bleeding just everytime i go to the toilet to pee i notice. what’s going on?

    1. But im 6weeks pregnant.and I just down pee and seing some blood! I was used tisue and its look like brown blood! I dont know what is goin on!!

    2. I am in a similar situation. 9.5 weeks and bleeding every time I use the bathroom, but nothing in between. Accompanied by some light cramping. I have a call in to my Dr, but she is on call today. Waiting is killing me! What is your blood type? Have you had your initial appointment already? If so, what were the results so far? This will be my third baby.

      1. Is everything ok with the pregnancy? I’m also 10 weeks and 3days and I have been spotting for 3 days now called my doctor and she said to rest but wondering if you pregnancy is ok?

  32. Hi.. few days before I found that I’m 2week pregnant..then suddenly I started spotting for two days and on the 3Rd day I started bleed heavy with clots too….what it could be?? what should I d?? Am I still pregnant or its miscarriage??? Need help (two months ago I miscarried my first baby is that happening again?)

  33. I took the clearblue advanced pregnancy test at home last Monday and they both said that I was one or two weeks along, but then I was told that I was 5 or 6 weeks at the time because the last period I remember having was around March 25th. About 3 days ago, I started spotting and was having cramps and when I went to the ER, I was told that I probably miscarried 2 weeks ago– my hormone level was 100 and something. But the cramping stopped yesterday morning & the spotting has decreased A LOT. Also had my first case of morning sickness 2 days ago, yet passed an inch long blood clot (it seems to look like lining from the uterus though) & found out later that having periods during pregnancy runs in my side of the family. I want to believe that my baby is okay 🙁 any thoughts? Could it be that maybe the first doctor got the info wrong on how far along I am? Cause seriously– I’m not even sure when my last cycle was.

  34. Hi I’ve just found out I’m pregnant done two at home pregnancy tests both positive and my dates put me at about 4 months. I had intercourse last night and now have noticed a small amount if bright red blood today so I used a sanitary towel and there is a very small amount. I have a light cramps in my stomach along the lines of period cramps and I don’t know if this is normal? If anyone could help? Thanks

  35. I am 8 weeks pregnant, i had weakness and later followed by bleeding and cloting for a day and stopped but had weakness through the day. Today am seeing spotting. I’ll go and see a doctor tomorrow but should i be worried about this development?

  36. Hi i have had brown discharge and bleeding when wipe for the past 3 weeks now. I have no pain. My doctor said could be ectopic and has booked me in for a scan next week. Has anyone else had the same bleeding but with positive outcome? Also is it possible to have an ectopic with no pain? I am currently 7 weeks pregnant. Thanks

    1. Hi if possible can you please give an update on your situation
      I have a history of ectopic and now pregnant
      Kind of of having similar symptoms but my numbers are doubling so doctor has me wait
      I’m sporting and all that
      I’m about 4-5 weeks

  37. I am 12 weeks and 4 Days and I have been experiencing a lot of bleeding. First start with brownish color for 2 days but bleeding lasted 5 days. Stopped for 3 days and started bleeding more heavier lasting another 5 days. This time I had bright red color and decided to go to the hospital and all they can tell me was I was pregnant (which I knew), no sex, and to stay off my feet. So I do what they told me. No sex and to stay off my feet. I stayed in bed and didn’t get out. 5 days later I started bleeding again and now lasting for 8 days. Has anyone ever experienced this or know what to do? My doctor/midwife doesn’t care or don’t how what to do.

  38. I am 7 weeks. I have been bleeding for 4 days now. First day was brown and small clots. Second day started out brown but by the night was red twice when whipping. Yesterday it was brown to,begin with until late last night. I began having an unbearable pain in my low abdomine that grew into my groine. I started to have red blood again and passed 2 decent sized blood Clots and had this pain and red blood for a couple hours. This morning it is all red but streaky as if mucusy. I went to ob on day 3. Said my cervix looked good and my uterus felt like it was still holdinh something inside. Did some blood work and was told my hcg is high and nornal but my progesterone is low. She ordered an us and am going in today for it. I am deathly scared they are going to tell me i have lost it due to the big clots last night or that there is a sac but no viable fetus inside. But i will say the bleeding is like a period at this point but accompanied by no abdomine pain nor any back pain or fever at this time.

    1. I went to the ER because I had light bleeding but unbearable cramping pain like if they were contractions . They gave me an ultrasound but couldn’t see anything yet doctor said the baby maybe to small to see yet.he also checked my cervix and said it was closed which is a good sign . The only answer the could give me was I was too early in the pregnancy or I had a miscarriage . I have to go back to the doctor in 2 days

  39. I’m not sure what to think at this point… Maybe someone could shed some light on my situation… I had my daughter 3 1/2 months ago and 2 weeks ago found out I am pregnant again I was fine for the first week to two weeks after we found out.. Now I am HEAVILY bleeding and passing clots the size of large grapes… I am having cramping and I am very worried… I have been to the ER and the doctor and blood test after blood test has been done… And each one has come back that my hcg levels are going up… (But nowhere near what they should) has anyone ever experienced this kind of situation?? Based on last period I would be right at 8 weeks and 5 days…. Can any one throw some advice my way???? We are trying to keep our hopes up and pray for everything to turn out okay….

  40. Also, I have had a few ultrasounds, all have shown a “sac” in my uterus but no visible baby or heartbeat…

    1. Candace,
      What was your outcome? I’m currently going thru the same thing. I’m worried that I miscarried but wont know till tomorrow when I go for my second ultrasound. I to am 8 weeks started spotting had an ultrasound only saw a sac. Then heavy bleeding for a day .

    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years. 5 days ago I spotted (just one spot in underwear) then it stopped. Did research and it said implementation bleeding. My cycle never spot that early then completely stop. So air waited to see if my cycle would start the day it was due and it did.

The same week when My period was close to an end I had to get a pregnancy test on the IVF clinic. It was faintly positive. My HCG was only 22. The Nurse said that It was probably a chemical pregnancy. 5 days later my blood was checked again and the HCG level went up to 300. From there It just kept increasing.Last week I had an early u/s and my baby was measuring five days behind and the Heart beat was 156/min. Last Night I had bad cramps and light bleeding.

  48. I’m in my third pregnancy.
    In my first two pregnancies I had no bleeding even implantation bleeding. My third pregnancy I miscarried at 10 weeks in December of 2014 and found out I was expecting in February 2015. Currently 18 weeks and I keep expecting to have a miscarriage since its still fresh in my mind.

    Out of four pregnancies I only bled once and it didn’t turn out well.

  49. I am 6 weeks and I have been bleeding for almost a week now kinda like a period it gets heavier when I’m up moving around then it lightens up the emergency room last week said it looked irregular but wasn’t sure because it could have been to early to tell but so far they have not ruled out a threatened miscarriage I have an u/s soon but I am nervous

  50. Hi ladies, need some advice. I am 6 weeks pregnant and woke this morning with blood stained underwear but have had no further bleeding at all and no pain. Went to doctors and have an ultrasound this afternoon. Very nervous and wanted to know if anyone has experienced something like this and continued on with a normal pregnancy?

  51. I got very strong bfp at 4 weeks on clearblue digital- pregnant 2-3 weeks. At 5 weeks 4 days (I think) I started bleeding and went to ER. They did blood test, urine test, external and internal ultrasound. Hcg was at 685 which they said was low. Said they didn’t see anything in uterus, but I wonder if it was too early. They couldn’t rule out ectopic but thought it was probably a miscarriage and sent me home. My dr didn’t see a point to get hcg level again. Now after 5 days of bleeding NO CLOTS, it has stopped. I still feel very pregnant. I took a frer and it was very dark plus a clearblue digital that said pregnant 2-3 weeks. Should I force dr to do my hcg or wait another week and retest? What are the odds I still am pregnant with a healthy baby? Dr said it could be a couple weeks until levels go down.

  52. I just found out I am pregnant last Monday, after I have been having this brown discharge for days. This morning I started bleeding. What is happening

  53. I’m about 6 weeks pregnant.

  54. Hi I am 28 years I have a daughter 7 years old and is currently with my bf 6 years now not my child father and been pregnant 3 times and always miscarriage of weeks last I was pregnant june of last year ana after 6 weeks I miscarriaged it’s so frustrating I wish I could give my bf a child can anyone help

    1. Hi boil 8 walnut shells take the tea made from the shells and blend it with the walnuts then drink it. It’s an old remedy used in Mexico not sure if it works or not but it’s not going to hurt you Or baby to try it’s natural. My aunt that used to suffer miscarriages swears by it after an older woman told her about it.

  55. this sounds crazy but i am estimated at 19w 4d and still continue to have light bleeding up to three or four days its very light and i only need wear a pantie liner. my ob said i was basically stupid and must be using drugs to think im still having a period, but i indeed am, and i am also indeed pregnant ultrasound confirms it. I’ve been told by my new ob that it is common in some cases to even bleed in whats called ” breakthrough” bleeding the whole pregnancy. im just wondering if this something anyone else has experienced and for sure is the baby safe and out of harms way?

  56. 13 weeks pregnant. I had bleeding, but very light pink. I had a previous uti. I brought some cranberry juice. It cleared up in 1-2 days. I only bled during urination. I was not allowed to take any antibiotics. No tissue or clots. Just hip and kidney pain. Try drinking cranberry juice more often to avoid bacterial infection. Drink water. Avoid artificial dyes and contraction causing spices. Ask your Dr or look it up. These spices can lead to miscarriages. Avoid food with rosemary and annato. I hope that helps.

  57. I started bleeding before my expected date of period,but bleeding was on and off,i decided to go for a pg test after 4 days of bleeding and came out positive, is the pregnancy still safe.

  58. So I’ve had spotting first thing in the am and doc said its normal but since I had intercourse two days ago both mornings since I’ve had red mixed with cm no cramping but this is def way more blood. Bit it goes away after I wipe a few times. Did anyone experience this. My ultrasound showed baby is fine in right spot. I’ve had two previous miscarriages so this freaks me out but my hcg is super high and keeps more then doubling every two days so not sure what to think. My doc is closed on weekends but going tomorrow

  59. I’m 12 weeks and 3days 3 days ago I started bleeding heavy rolling down my legs heavy went to the hospital and as I’m walking to the room pass a clot the size of my palm bleeding seem to stop after that or slow down did a ultrasound baby was perfect and cervix still closed still been cramping and spotting altho it’s brown blood just when I wipe still super freaked out never had bleeding like this w my other two childern also sworn I’ve been haveinf contractions here and there but not sure any ladies have this problem and go on to have a healthy pregnancy?

  60. I can see Not many people get advice back or replies but here it goes. I can relate to the women who n have brown streaky light bleeding. I n had for 24 hours went b to ER, they co n fir ed I was 5 wks and 3 days which n isnabout right but saidnthe gestational sac was empty. They did not and c I uld not confirm a viable pregnancy. I have felt cramping and sharp pains all m the way through so far, sore breasts and now some nausea, hcg was 5800. No more bleeding but left feeling very confused as to why b there is jothing in the Gest Sac. Have had 2 miscarriages in lat 2 yrs and feels very different. Anyone else had no signs in the Gest Sac?

  61. Hi my wife and I just took a home pregnancy test the clear blue digital first thing on Tuesday morning and it said she was pregnant… So she started to spot a little for the first two days. But on wensday she took another test and it says not pregnant. So today she started to bleed but it’s not hevey nor big blood clots come out. So we have a Dr appointment next week. So the question is is she pregnant?

  62. Hello, my last period was may 2,2015. I tested positive on June 7,2015. I started having very light spotting 3 days ago and yesterday I had break through bleeding. I assumed I was probably around 5 weeks but I went to the ER yesterday and they tested my beta levels and said im only 2 weeks maybe 3 and my levels are at a 13. I was also told that if my levels don’t rise by this coming week I could miscarry. Any advice or has this happened to anyone else

  63. I was 6weeks 4 days when I had heavy bleeding (bright red blood) which lasted several hours before slowing then stopping within 24 hours. It started as a gush, no pain, but a few clots. I’d called the gp who said it sounded like a miscarriage (I had a miscarriage last year which started as spotting with pain which became worse over 2 days and lasted a week). This time i had to wait 5 days for a scan during which time I had lost almost all of my symptoms other than being thirsty. I went for my scan yesterday to find one healthy heartbeat and Lil one safe. They are questioning if the bleed is from a second baby which they are uncertain if its healthy or not (need to wait till 12 week scan as I declined an internal). I searched through so many forums over the last 5 days and wanted to share my experience as I honestly thought it was over for me this time especially with my symptoms vanishing (everything went through my head from miscarriage, eptopic, missed miscarriage etc). My symptoms are now increasing daily and although they advised further bleeding could occur if second baby has gone, I’d still be asking for any bleeding to be checked.

    1. Hi Louise! How are you doing? Your situation is a little similar to mine…I’ve been lightly bleeding for 3 days,waiting for second ultrasound but I have lost all symptoms. I hate this waiting game

  66. I am 7 weeks pregnant and this morning when i stood up after peeing I had a light red pink blood spot in my panties. Haven’t had any other problems until just now, when I went to restroom and had brown period like discharge. I have been feeling different, as in my stomach as been slightly cramping but nothing really painful. What is going on???

  67. Hi, my name is Renee and I have had two miscarriages in the past.. I am not 5 weeks pregnant and have started bleeding . its very moderate and its been going on for two days.. I don’t know what to do. Any one had this before? I just really don’t want to lose another baby.

    1. Hey I am five weeks pregnant as well. I have bleeding to but it’s only for a couple hours then it stopped. I took a test , it was still positive. HCG levels are high. I have to go to my ob tomorrow for an US and to check my levels again. Hopefully everything is okay. Just thought I should share that with you. I’m confused to.

  68. Hi everyone i am 8 weeks and I have been bleeding with clots and bright red like I’m on my period for about 6 days now I had an ultrasounds yesterday and test the day befor the Dr said my hormones are msg at 8 weeks wich is what I am but the baby is msg at 6 weeks,and heart rate is 80 beets per min. Im not shore what is going on has anyone else had this happen what was going on? Am I loosing it?

  69. I am currently 5-6 weeks pregnant, I’ve been to the emergency because I have been bleeding. I gotten a ultrasound done also a internal ultrasound n Dr said that my baby does have a heart beat but right after I gotten the internal ultrasound I went to the bathroom n a Hugh blood clot had came out.. I am still bleeding n it started 3 days ago it’s dark red n also tiny blood clots are coming out.. n very bad abdominal cramp pain.. I am worried n not exactly sure what’s going on, I’ve told the emergency about it n the Dr told me to see my family Dr… is this normal or should I be worried… this will be my 4th child. I would go back to the emergency but the hospital here is not the greatest I’ve called health link n they told me if my pad is full every hour to go in but my pad is not full every hr… has anyone had this experience I would gladly appreciate it if I can get some answers from u mothers.. please n thank you…. I don’t want to think badly about it cause it may cause stress to me n my unborn baby…

    1. I had the same exact issues at 5 weeks. It seems that my bleeding would only come when I’m moving around. It’s not constant either. Like every other hour. I don’t know what’s going on. I have an doctor app tomorrow to check HCG LEVELS again. They were high when i went to ER yesterday.

  70. I found out I was 11weeks 2days the 23 this month and the next day started to bleed. Its bright red and Brown and it was painful enough I saw my obg but baby was fine it’s the 29th now and I passed a blood clot that was a little big and I’m still in pain like a hard heavy period and I’m scared and don’t know what it any help?

  71. I am had two pregnancy tests positive and one negative, I haven’t been feeling well and yesterday I noticed a little blood when I wiped and I have been spotting here and there, but today there has been no blood on panty liner but when I wipe there is blood. am I pregnant? Or is this my period?

  72. hello ladies im 21 weeks pregnant. i went to the ER yesterday due to me having pains in my lower left abdomen and also on the left side of my back. i was frighten when they rolled me up to labor and delivery but over all they took urine and it was clear of a uti. they said it was round ligament pains.he said the baby is breathing excellent and her heart beat is very strong. he said my cervix is completely closed. i was relieved.but about five to seven hours later at home i started spotting and it is still occurring. there is no pain at all and the baby is still very active. have any one experienced this? is this something i should be worried about?

  73. I’m very confused. I’m 26, never had a confirmed pregnancy. I’ve been married for 9 months, and I’m pretty sure I miscarried the month after we married. (Very weird period, but too early for test. All the pregnancy symptoms.)

    Anyhow….nothing else till this month. Period was due the 10th. 2 weeks later (the 24th ad 25th) I had strong cramping for two days – no spotting. I took 6 prep tests over this time, all were negative. Breasts were sensitive and I was more tired and emotional than normal, but I figured it was because I was late.

    My husband and I had sex the 29th, and I had a little bit of pink when I wiped. The 30th, I was bleeding as if the beginning of my period. I continued bleeding until this morning, heavy, but not as heavy as my normal cycle, and no clots that I noticed (I usually have clots with my normal cycle.) I had 2 days of decent cramping, but not as bad as my normal cycle.

    This morning, I thought I was done – like a normal cycle – and this evening, I have a small amount of pink with membrane like stuff, or mucous or something. I’m so confused. I’m having a wee bit of cramping (I guess? It’s doesn’t hurt. It’s just there.)

    Could I be pregnant? Or are my hormones just wacky? Or could I have miscarried?

    (Sorry if any of that was TMI)

  74. hi, I am 12 weeks pregnant I had light red amd brown discharge few days before and it happens on and off , but I m realy upset about it as I had a previous miscarriage too.i did nt tell this pregnancy except for my husband , I wanted to share this news after scan but I m nt sure wot wil happen my midwife saying dat it can b old blood but nothing is assuring me.i had scan this friday I hope everyrhing would b fine.

  75. Hi! Ive experience pregnancy symptoms like sleepiness,tender and sore breats for 1 week,wider hips,sensitive nipples,breasts became fuller,food cravings,vivid dreams. Todays the day im expecting my period and last night i had light bleeding. THis morning when i got up to pee i was surprise to see fist like blood clots and after that no bleeding. After an hr i bleed again. It was an on and off kinda bleeding and this is the first i experience fist like blood clots. I tested for hpt last week and it was bfn. But i strongly believe that i am pregnant. Im afraid to test again this week,afraid that i am not. Anyone experienced this also?

  76. Regardless of how far along you are, bleeding is a terrible and scary time! It is the fear of the unknown. I am 5.5 weeks along, it is my third pregnancy and I’m an older Mum too @ 41 yrs. I have NEVER experienced this with my previous two children but I am comforted knowing that this is common and I am not alone. We are all courageous Superwomen…doing the best we can under the circumstances. I hope we all get the answers and results that we are wishing for. KIND REGARDS, JC.

  77. Hi, I’m wondering if anyone could help me?
    I took two home pregnancy tests just over a week ago which both came back positive. Then another the other day (clear blue) and it said I was pregnant 1-2 weeks, so I booked a blood test and they said my hcg was very low and said It could be *too early* or it could be a false positive. Then the last 2 days I’ve been bleeding quite heavy but had no cramps. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? :/

  78. Hi all, I’m around 6 weeks pregnant on my 4th pregnancy. I went to the toilet yesterday and after wiping have seen some blood which kinda reminds me of a period. I’m in no pain at all. The blood is not dripping but its still there a little this morning. My breasts don’t feel tendor like they was.. Soo weird but does feel like a miscarriage especially as I’ve never experienced this with my other children.. I don’t know what to make of it but its quite scary just not knowing..

  79. hi….all….

    I am pregnant by 7 weeks. i am bleeding since 2 days. the bleeding is not continuous but i am bleeding 3-4 times a day. its even not that heavy. i have no pain. i underwent ultra sound scan….everything was fine with the baby.the doc said that i am having a subchorionic clot which will resolve by itself. she prescribed some medicines to control bleeding and said it would stop. but i am still bleeding…i am worried…please let me know if you know of this condition…..

  80. I’m 4 weeks pregnant I started bleeding a few days ago very light but I did bleed heavy sometimes I went to the ER they told me I’m having a threatened miscarriage I’m extremely worried they said there’s still a chance my baby can be ok but Im extremely worried and stressed out!

  81. Hi. I found out I was pregnant July 29th i started spotting that day n by Friday it was kind of heavy small clots I passed something that was flesh colored slimy kind of thick like mucus. Last period was may 29th n it was regular. I did bleed off n on 2-3 days one time (June 20) n June 30th for 1day both times after sex. No bleeding at all in July till the 29th. I felt nausea up until this Saturday (Aug 1st) bleeding has almost stopped (very very light now) hospital said the didn’t see anything in ultrasound. Also I didn’t get a positive pregnancy test till July 29th n I took them after I did not have a regular period on July 1st all negative even took one July 20th/21st n it was negative. Took clear blue July 30th n it said only 1-2 weeks pregnant. Does it should like miscarriage or could it be possible I didn’t get pregnant till this July n not June like I thought??? Currently testing level but I’m just waiting any ideas???

  93. am currently 12 weeks 5 dats pregnant, I’m 19 years old and this is my first child but my 3rd pregnancy, I recently had a molar pregnancy in may 2015, had a d&c, and was under Sheffield hospital for blood tests, to see if my hormones would go down, I did this every two weeks, all of a sudden my hormones had raised, I had to have an ultrasound, what showed I was 7 weeks pregnant, I was so happy!!! At 9 weeks 4days I started getting brown discharge and pinky coloured blood around 10mins later I stood up and blood gushed out of me sorry for TMI, I was rushed to hospital was so certain I miscarried again! Had an ultrasound the next day (sunday) and saw a healthy baby! Heartbeat there and everything normal, just a bleed ontop of the sac, I had a follow up scan 2 weeks later, I was so scared 🙁 but I had nothing to worry about a healthy baby at 11 weeks 4days!! Bleeding still showing but had moved around the side/bottom of the sac, had my 12 week scan last week baby is still fine, and I’m STILL BLEEDING. I wouldn’t worry, bleeding is more common than you would think. Hope everything works our for you, pregnancy is a tough time for most people, will be thinking if you all

    1. Thanks dear. So reassuring. Am currently 14weeks and 4d today. Had a very propose vaginal bleed at 12weeks and 3d. I could have sworn i miscarried but my husband encouraged me not to strain while i was sitting in the toilet. Scan showed a kicking, virtually dancing little us. Itz been 2 weeks on and am still having brownish discharge enough to use sanitary pads twice daily for. Repeated Scan early this week and baby is still fine, shut tight cervix with no localized source of bleed. This is my third pregnancy with the previous 2 lost at 25 weeks. I am on bed rest, tocolytics and hydroxyprogesterone. Still waiting for the bleeding to stop so i can have a cervical cerclage placed. In all, no cramps of any sort and cant wait to begin experiencing those memorable foetal kick.

  94. I’ve been having pregnancy symptoms for a few months now but I’m having periods monthly and negative tests. I would just say Im imagining things if it was for my first child. I bled period like blood for the first 5 months of her pregnancy. Never took a test and my doc told me I was probably just stressed because i was bleeding for 5 to 7 days. Well now my daughter is 5 and in the top percentile for her age. So don’t worry ladies, as long as you’re checking with your docs and taking care of yourself, your baby should be fine

  95. Hi there,
    This is my first pregnacy I wAs 8 weeks on Friday. Late Friday evening I had some bleeding/spotting, no major cramping some very dull faint cros but I have had them on and off since I found out. I spotted all day Saturday and then nothing on Sunday then today (Monday) I hZve started to spot again. Been at the hospital all day and they did all the blood tests and everything was fine with them but still have to try and get an ultrasound tomorrow just to confirm everything is defiantly ok. Has anyone else had these symptoms and were ok? I realise spotting/bleeding is very common but I’m just worried it has lasted a few days. TIA

  96. I’m 5-6 weeks pregnant. Haven’t had a scan or anything yet but due to go to the Dr’s this Wednesday. I’ve done 7 home tests-all positive. Started with light spotting on Friday with no pain, it got lighter. Then on Sunday started having fresh red blood slightly heavier and now today same again with mild cramps. Bleeding is still not heavy enough to warrant changing my sanitary towel more than once/twice a day and its never soaked just marked. I usually have really heavy periods with clots (sorry for TMI). Does this sound like a miscarriage? I can’t tell, this is my 1st pregnancy any advice would be greatly appreciated as I’m really stressing

  97. hi today i had an eps because i started bleeding yesterday its very heavy and im in alot of pain but the lady doing the internal scan said the pregnancy is fine but they cant find a heartbeat so i have to go back in 8 days im only 5-6 weeks has anyone else had strong pain and bleeding but been ok? im just hoping everything will be fine but really need reassurance 🙁

  98. I am 6months and I am experiencing some dark and bright blood clots and regular bleeding like I am having my period… The little one is still moving though and I’m not quite sure if I should be worried.



    2. GO SEE A DOCTOR, the will run tests including physical exam urninalysis and blood work. to CONSOLE your worst night mare.

    3. spotting during early stages of pregnancy is VERY common. lets go back to rule number one dont google anything or read peoples comments. theyre not professionals its all hearsay and u will most likely get freaked out as you obsess and dig for infomation and not like what you find.

    4. to calm your nerves i am not going to explain the medical aspect of this but its self explanitory. this is from MEDICAL FDA APPROVED PEER REVIEWED JOURNAL THAT SPECIALITS READ. thats right even doctors don tknow everything adn need to be updated, this is what a pseicalist will read:

    “Implantation, placentation and the first and early second trimester of pregnancy resemble ‘an open wound’ that requires a strong inflammatory response. During this first stage, the blastocyst has to break through the epithelial lining of the uterus to implant, damage the endometrial tissue to invade; followed by the trophoblast replacement of the endothelium and vascular smooth muscle of the maternal blood vessels to secure an adequate placental–fetal blood supply.27 All these activities create a veritable ‘battleground’ of invading cells, dying cells and repairing cells. An inflammatory environment is required to secure the adequate repair of the uterine epithelium and the removal of cellular debris. Mean-while, the mother’s well-being is clinically affected: she feels sick because her whole body is struggling to adapt to the presence of the fetus (in addition to hormonal changes and other factors, this inflammatory response is responsible for ‘morning sickness’). Thus, the first trimester of pregnancy is a proinflammatory phase.28”

    AKA IMPLANTATION IS A BATTLE GROUND! FOR UNKOWN BUT SUPSECTED REASONS WOMEN MAY BLEED MUCH PAST THE ‘IMPLANTATION’ 12 DAY STAGE SO RELAX. breathe and i bet you you will be fine. if you wan to read up more on this journal the refence is

  103. Hi, I found out that I got pregnant middle of September of this year (I am only a couple weeks to a month at the most), I have been bleeding very light brownish to about 6 days now, I have already seen my doctor and he said we have to wait until my second blood test results come back to know if my hcg levels have gone up or down, they we’re low at about 16 as of Tuesday. I have no pain at all so I’m not sure if this will end up in a miscarriage or if everything will be okay, I get my results tomorrow. Has anyone else had this happen? Did everything then out okay? Please and thank you. I’m just worried

  104. I should at least be 5 weeks pregnant.

    So my last period was July 19-25
    I had light bleeding only when I wiped it was light pink on sep.2 then a little heavier on the third with red blood so I though I had started. Then went away the next day like nothing.
    October 10th I took two home pregnancy tests and both came out positive! I was so happy because my last pregnancy I had miscarried.
    On the 11th around 2 I had some cramping that got worse through out the day with bleeding and some clots .
    I went to the hospital and after 6 hours they tell me they couldn’t see anything on the ultra sound and my hcg level is only 1600. And would only make me a week pregnant. That doesn’t make since at all because some woman are 5-6 weeks with that level. They told me to follow up in a few days and see how it goes . I woke up yesterday with no bleeding and light cramping. Till later that night I started light spotting and cramping. Today I woke up completely fine.. Breast are still as tender as before and everything. I’m so lost .. And upset.. I don’t know anything and I’m pretty sure I lost the baby. My last miscarriage hie wasn’t like this though.. And that’s what confuses me. .

  105. I’m 17 weeks pregnant been spotting and bleeding when I go pee. When I wipe its when I see blood. Next week I have my first ultrasound. I have no pain so the nurse said to wait and see. I hope the baby is fine but I’m freaking out.

  116. Hi, please what causes placenta abruption, because I had c- section in July with 6 months baby but died with same problem of placenta abruption. Please advice me further on what to do

  117. In August my husband and I had sex, I took 2 tests on Sept 3 and they were very faint positives and took forever to show up, I ended up having a normal period so I thought it was a false positive, I had a normal period in October, then I knew something was up when I hadn’t had my period since Halloween and it’s middle of December now. Well I took 2 more tests and they came out positive again but this time they were instant positives with dark lines. We attempted to have sex sometime in November when we thought our daughter was sleeping in her room, she wasn’t and we heard her get up so stopped litterly a minute into having sex. I have an appointment in 4 days but of course I’m paranoid even though I feel like I can feel fluttering already, my breasts are super duper sore and I have the canine senses, but haven’t thrown up yet, been nauseas a few times but never threw up. Could I be 18 weeks pregnant already and just had breakthrough bleeding during the 4th and 8th week of pregnancy? I’m already showing, with my 1st pregnancy I didn’t show until later like this one if I am already 18 weeks. Any others have this happen and everything turned out fine? I’m just really worried!

  118. My case is so confusing on January 2015 my midwife told me that am pregnant but since then am have been bleeding every month as if am seeing my menses I went for a test with I was three months gone it was negative but I’ve been having changes in body my stomach is getting bigger month by month now am12 months what do I do to stop the bleeding I have seek help from many places but no positive result

  119. I am 15 weeks today, Last night I used the bathroom and when I wiped I noticed blood. Iimmediately called my mother and asked herwhat i should do BC this is my first pregnancy and I kind of freaked out a little. She told me call my OB and talk to the on duty nurse. I called explained what was going on and she told me to just go lie down immediately and drink plenty water. She wants to say its from me and my boyfriend having sex the night before, but its weird cause I just got a pap smear done a week ago and nothing like this happened. I just woke up and checked, no blood. But if I see anymore I’m going straight to the e.r. This is so scary for me when taking my familys pregnancy history into account.

  120. I’m 7w1d today and I’m experiencing blood, cramps in my lower tummy and passing blood clots. This is my first pregnancy and I certainly don’t wan’t to lose my baby. *tears*

  121. I just found out last night that I am pregnant with my 4th child. My husband and I are currently going thru a divorce. I had a very light period or so I thought about a week late last month so I just thought it was my period. This week at work I’ve been noticing myself feeling kind of queasy so I thought just to be on the safe side I would take a test. I haven’t been having regular sex with my soon to be ex, it was since on new years. So I didn’t expect anything to become of it but the test was positive. I took another in the middle of the night cause I couldn’t sleep and it was another positive. I woke up this morning bleeding. Heavily. I cleaned up and it stopped after a couple minutes. I went on about my day and around lunch time I left the house and driving, I was doubled over in pain feeling like I was being stabbed in the uterus. I got back home and sat on the toilet and blood once again poured out. It was like period blood, not brown or anything just red blood with some tiny clots. I haven’t even been to a doctor yet so Idk what to expect or how to feel. Haven’t told anyone anything. About the pregnancy nor possible miscarriage. I’m again not bleeding now at 5. Not even when I strain. Am I losing this baby or is any part of this relatively normal? It was almost a relief waking up to blood like the whole pregnancy scare was a dream but those tests were 100% positive. But now I’m feeling down and I don’t know what is going on in my head.

  122. HELP ME… I have all the pregnancy symptoms but i have taken two home pregnancy tests both came back negative. I had an unusual period that lasted 2 1/2 days and was light when my periods usually last 6 days and are medium flow. If i were pregnant i would be just over 4 weeks. What should i do and whats going on?

  123. So I was due my period yesterday but have had pregnancy symptoms for the last 2 weeks so I did a test and it was positive, later last night I got backaches and light red bleeding. Sounds like breakthrough bleeding as I had my period last time I was pregnant and have a happy 1 year old. My question is when should I do another test? Thanks

  127. Hi, I don’t know if I’m pregnant … My period is 5 weeks late , I took home pregnancy tests and went to the doctor and took a test and they came back negative … For the past few days I’ve been experiencing cramps and light bleeding

  128. I woke up in the early hours of yesterday morning to use the toilet, and filled the bowl with blood.13 weeks pregnant, I was obviously quite worried. Barely slept, then passed a 20c clot around 8am.
    I had an ultrasound yesterday that showed bubs happily in a headstand and sucking his thumb, lol clearly oblivious to the distress of his poor mother 😉

    The sonographer was wonderful. He said he sees this 3-4 times a day, if not more. Healthy baby, heavy vaginal bleeding and no explanation of why. Sometimes our bodies just do this! I’m already feeling tiiiiiny gentle flutters down there, which is reassuring (third pregnancy), so although the bleeding (now more like spotting) is still there, and still bright red, I’m doing my best to relax and enjoy the pregnancy. Whatever is meant to be will be.

    1. Im 12 weeks today i have an ultrasound scheduled for Thursday, 2 days from now. I have 2 full term kiddos and have had 1 miscarriage. I have had a liile brown discharge throughout this pregnancy but i just got up to go to the bathroom and has a gush of red blood. Im very nervous.

  129. Felt all the signs of pregnancy and was two weeks late on my period then got heavy dark bleeding and I still have all the symptoms of pregnancy. What’s going on? Really painful lower adominial pain!! Help!!?

  130. Thought I started my period on March 31st but found out I was miscarrying an unknown pregnancy or having implantation bleeding. Now I thought maybe. I had the flu after but I was advised by family to go to ER and make sure that flu feeling wasnt leftover placenta making me sick. I went and had ultrasound and chest xray. Normal ultrasound but I had bronchitis and UTI and they wanted to give me pain meds and cough medicine but my HCG came back at 40 so they scheduled a retest to come back 2 nights later to make sure my levels had gone down so they could treat me with more then just a Zpak and Cephlex. Well when I went back to the ER as scheduled my pain was gone and I started having morning sickness the last 48hrs. My HCG came back as 64 but that would mean I was only 1-2 wks on the chart so apparently I was originally carrying twins( but mentioned to DR my son that would be 11 now only gave me a level of 50 and I was 4wks but he came at 61/2 mo as a stillborn) So she said they need to watch it then cuz my levels should have doubled but technically im still pregnant cuz it went up . She gave me a referral to a OB GYN but I live in Seattle and the OB’s do not take my state insurance in Las vegas or Arizona and I will be between both these cities for the next month. Only thing I worry about is I have spotted/bled light pink to dark brown the whole time but only cramp every 3 days or so.. I go thru about 3-4 pantiliners a day. I definitely still feel pregnant. I get nausea every night around 2-5am, my breasts/nipples are really itchy (but im also a J cup with a small 140lb frame.


  131. My period was on 26th I want to conceive now I had a heavy blood clot on 27 th this month … is it normal period or spotting because when my period occur its at first lightish brown then next day it’s red .

  132. I suffered from amoebiasis at 16 weeks of my pregnancy. It was the time when they saw this mass on my cervix. 3 days after, iwent to the out patient department to have a consultation regarding on what they have seen they read the result of my pap smear. The doctor did a biopsy on my cervix because i have a suspicious mass in there although the pap smear resulted negative lesion or malignancy. After the biopsy procedure i bleed heavily. They manage it by packing sterile gauze inside to stop the bleeding at the site by applying pressure on it. The doctor let it in for about 1 1/2 hour to make sure the bleeding had stopped. After removing the pack there was still light bleeding so the dr inserted another pack and told me to be back tomorrow. I was prescribed of a tocolytic drug 3x a day for 5 daysto prevent preterm labor.
    I went back to the doctor to have it remove. After removing, it bleed again maybe because due to the instrument to open mine. To control the bleeding they did insert a pack again and after it the doctor applied a substance that stopped the bleeding.
    The day after yesterday, i accidentally tripped on the stair 🙁 and i bleed again. I was rushed to the emergency room and they aplied the substance again to stop it. I am very worried because of my risk of having an abortion.
    Now i am fine but in the agony of waiting of the result of my biopsy. I am very very worried Of my baby due to the medications i have taken like the metronidazole for amoebiasis and isoxsuprine to prevent preterm labor. I dont know if those drug will affect my baby. I hope my baby will be normal and healthy
    And another i have a mass on my right breast i need to have it be ultrasound 🙁 🙁 🙁 my mother died of cancer. I want to live long for my baby 🙁 🙁 🙁

  133. I found out I was pregnant 2 days before my period was due. I took 5 pregnancy tests that day and blood work to confirm my pregnancy. My doctor told me my blood work showd I was 4 weeks pregnant. I am supposed to be 8 weeks pregnant today. Yesterday morning I noticed I was bleeding very light, it was only noticeable when I wiped and mild cramps. I went to the hospital late afternoon and had an ultrasound done and they told me I was 5 weeks pregnant! The doctor is worried my baby is not progressing so I’m in and out of the hospital all of next week so they can measure my HCG levels. So….. If I’m 3 weeks behind then we all thought I was then that means I was 1 week pregnant when all 6 tests went positive? Is that possible? The bleeding is the same, very light with a few small clots and wry soft cramping. Am I going to miscarry?

  134. I’m almost 13 weeks last week I was cramping and bleeding old blood which passed after two days , last night I was cramping and heavy bleeding I went to a&e and a scan revealed all is ok a very wriggky baby with a heartbeat and with closed cervix same as last week. They don’t know why I’m cramping and bleeding and I except that as long as baby is good with a heartbeat and my cervix is closed.

    It can be scary I guess just talk with your midwife or go. Follow their advice. Its very stressful but seek advice, try to keep calm and rest .

  135. I am twelve weeks and 5 days I have been slightly cramping for a few weeks and I just had intercourse and went to the bathroom and I am lightly bleeding. Should I go to the doctor or hospital? I am worried this is my first ever pregnancy

  138. Hi I am 5 weeks and 5 days. I went to the er cause I was having some bleeding with small clots. They took blood and did an ultra sound. They saw the sack but was empty which is normal. I also have a cyst ton the left side and I was cramping on the same side. They said it looks like it grew and has some grows in it. They were very concerned about it. They wanted to build it but I’m pregnant and want to do a CT but can’t. They told me my HTC levels were 1400 which isn’t good. I’m very worried my breast are still sore and I feel like I have to pee alot. I still feel pregnant.

All the earlier post sounds positive and hopeful I just hope mine turns out to be a miracle I will keep posting till the outcome. Cheers

  144. I think it is ‘normal’ with either some women or some pregnancies. With my two sons, aged 5 and 4 years, i bled well into about the 15th weeks. Both of them were born healthy. I am now about 6 weeks gone with my 3rd child and experiencing the same thing. I am hoping for the best. So, look on the bright side and keep a positive outlook. Hope all turn out well.

  146. Ladies.. I’ve recently round out I’m pregnant but very early on into the pregnancy. I think I’m only about 4 weeks and have been pregnant Beckford unfortunately, I have previously had 6 miscarriages and I’m concerned about this one. Yesterday at 14.10, I started getting cramps like period pains followed by lots of blood… I have now passed clots. I went to A&E who recommended me to just rest as it’s too early in my pregnancy to find out immediately whether I lost the baby or not.. basically I’m just wondering if this has happened to anyone who went on to have a successful pregnancy as this doesn’t feel the same as my previous miscarriages..

  147. I just found out I was pregnant and I have the iud. I went to er and they confirmed I was pregnant and informed I needed to see a specialist to get my iud removed. I started spotting blood today…. I’m worried. Should I go back to er or just wait for my Dr visit in a week? I’m also having severe back pain….

  148. Hi, my name is Maria I’m 10 weeks today and I went to the bathroom and when I wiped towards the back I noticed some blood is that bad or normal I have no pain what can I do please help it’s my first time and I have no idea if to be scared or not?

  149. My LMP was on 13-2-2017. I had done a home test and it turned +ve on 21-3-2017. The very next day there was light bleeding and we consulted doctor. She couldn’t find anything in scan and HCG was 313. Again today I gave for HCG – awaiting report.

    Could you suggest me are these symptoms of any worry? I am unable to focus/sleep from past 2-3 days.


  150. Hi am Hellen 30yrs , 9 weeks pregnant, i starting experiencing some bleeding (spotting)at 3week that lasted for 4 weeks when my pregnancy made 8 weeks i felt a huge gush of clotted bloom coming out of my body however no pain, and that happened once in the 9th week the spotting has stopped and i have no pain, is this normal?

  151. Hello, I’m about 3weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy. I am having vaginal bleeding with clots, first day just mild bleeding, dizziness and mild abdominal cramps, 2nd day moderate bleeding with mild cramps and I’ve felt the blood passing out every hour it is small amount of blood with clot. And today my 3rd day, It is the same as yesterday, but without cramps and still I am feeling dizzy. I went to ER on the first day of my bleeding and the doctor just told me to wait and come back after 1-2 weeks because he cannot see anything on the ultrasound as I am in the very early stage of pregnancy. I am very anxious and nervous right now. Has anyone of you had experienced the same thing. Please share it with me.

  152. I am pregnant from last 8 months, but suddenly blood spots are appeared and it is my 12th day that I see the blood spots. My Doctor give me some medicines and said nothing. I am confused what will happen

  153. I had an ultrasound at 10w2d and by 10w4d I felt a gush of fluid fill my underwear and it was blood, not just a little but enough to soak the entire thing! I immediately changed, threw a pad on and rushed to hospital where I filled the pad I was already wearing and also a hospital pad they provided after. The gyno did an internal examination on me and my cervix was closed and I had some hope. I left the hospital and slept at home not sure what to expect. I wasn’t passing clots or tissue, I was just gushing out with blood, pink and red in colour and some what watery in texture. By next morning I had an emergency ultrasound and it was confirmed that my baby was still intact, actively moving around and alive. I have been bleeding for almost a week and it is slowly stopping. I still live in fear on a minute to minute basis as I suffered a miscarriage last year. I just hope this is my miracle and rainbow <3

  154. Doctors have me at 5 weeks. I started bleeding three days ago medium flow no pain a little cramping. The doctors at the hospital told me my levels seem fine the ultrasound didn’t show a pregnancy , they said that could be cause it’s to early or it’s in an unknown location. Now they have me waiting until Tuesday to do more blood work to see my levels. I’m going crazy and I’ve been crying. I still feel hungry all the time and am very moody I haven’t really had any other symptoms. This would be my 4 pregnancy and 4 baby.

  155. I have had spotting since week 5. This is how I found out I was pregnant. I went in at 5w3d due to spotting and was told I was pregnant. I was spotting dark blood from 5-9w. This wasn’t heavy bleeding but decent enough to fill part of my undies. I had an ultrasound at 7w and saw a heart beat of 135bpm so was happy to know I had a viable pregnancy. However at 9w my bleeding got heavier and more thick. It was dark red blood. I also experienced mild period like pains and a tender lower back. Nothing excruciating but noticeable. Went for an ultrasound at 9w2d and there was no heart beat. Baby stopped growing at 8w6d. Really sad as this is my first pregnancy. Not all bleeding is bad news, I wasn’t that worried when it was just spotting. However go get yourself checked if your flow gets heavier. I’ve also read a lot of positive outcomes of women experiencing heavy bleeding during pregnancy.
    This time it wasn’t meant to be for me xx

  156. My emotions are all over the place…I found out I was pregnant on Dec 18th 2019. With Christmas & My father being unfortunately terminally ill I have a lot of stress & worry on my shoulders.
    On the 30th Dec I starting bleeding, clots (bigger then 50p) me & my husband broke down, spoke to the emergency services they talked me through that I was having a miscarriage. Heart was broken. I went up to the maternity ward New Year’s Eve, (the next day whilst still bleeding) sat around mums to be, to have a internal scan and to be told the baby is still there in its sac!!!? It’s not a etopic, I have no infection? I’m around 6 weeks & but it’s too early to hear a heart beat so to go home and wait a week.
    I’m still bleeding, not as big clots, and not fresh bright blood. It’s like I’m having a actual period. The nurses said it’s 50/50 time will tell?
    So this week is the longest week of my life, until Monday arrives. Me & my husband don’t know weather to celebrate, but to grieve a miscarriage then be told it didn’t happen? But still could!? I’m a high risk pregnancy now.
    Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice will be strongly appreciated?

  157. hi my name is Riaan my girlfriend is six months pregnant and she started bleeding clots and having a very strong back pain can you tell me if its normal or is it something bad.
