i took a home pregnancy test and it was positive. two days later i started bleeding. it's not heavier nor lighter than usual. should i be worried?

Dr. Mary David
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Need to be seen: While half of all pregnancies have some bleeding in the first trimester , bleeding like a period is not normal and could indicate a problem so you should see an obstetrician. Take care.

See details: No it could not cause lighter bleeding. Do a pregnancy test if you miss your next period if you are actively trying to become pregnant.

If negative : pregnancy tests, an ultrasound examination, may show uterine fibroids, or ovarian cysts as a possible reason.
