What you describe may in fact be the result of a placental location partially overlying the cervical canal (partial placenta previa). While this does NOT mean that the pregnancy is in jeopardy, sexual relations at this point may cause further bleeding and put the pregnancy at risk. This condition may be more accurately diagnosed with an ultrasound at this point, which if OK, may allow sex.
