Depends on trimester: Early bleeding can be due to a threatened miscarriage, an infection and even just bleeding related to recent sex or vaginal exam. The cervix doesn't like to be touched in pregnancy. Later in pregnancy it can be due to things like a placenta previa, preterm labor, sex or recent exam and again infections. Its best to call your OB provider even if after hours (most of us have an answering service)
