Cervical trauma?: The bleeding is likely resulting from cervical trauma--i.E the tip of the penis hitting the cervice repeatedly during relation, especially your partner is long. This usually resolves spontaneously. Some cervical disease such as polyps, cervictis etc..Can increase bleeding risk with minimal trauma. Consult doc. Good luck.

Yes: The cervix is more sensitive during pregnancy and will often bleed if touched. This includes vaginal ultrasounds, doctor exams, and sex. Spotting or light bleeding after any of these is very common. Heavy bleeding is not normal.

Yes: It is very common to be constipated when you are pregnant. Hard stools can irritate and cause fissures (cracks/cuts) in the anal/perianal area, resulting in bleeding when you move your bowels or wipe yourself. If you are experiencing bleeding from the vagina and are pregnant, you need to inform your obstetrician so he/she can investigate where the bleeding is coming from.

Stay off the tummy: A little bleeding from a baby's umbilical stump is normal, if the skin around the stump isn't red or hard. It's usually best to avoid baths, tummy time, or anything that would irritate the area until the belly button is clean, healed, and dry.

Have it checked: Gum bleeding could be caused by gum disease like gingivitis, taking blood thinners, a blood disorder with low clotting factors, hemophilia, and many others. Have your physician check it and see if you need to be tested.
