Need pregnancy test: If you are trying to conceive and have abnormal bleeding, it could be an abnormal pregnancy like a miscarriage or tubal pregnancy. A tubal pregnancy can be dangerous, so be sure to rule it out. Some women have spotting during the first trimester and have a healthy pregnancy. It could also be bleeding with ovulation. Any abnormal bleeding should be checked by your doctor.
