Hormones: It usually occurs early in pregnancy around the time your period would be due and really isn't all that uncommon. Is seems like an easy answer but is really complicated but hormones are linked to just about everything in some way to a woman's reproductive system and a lot of the rest of her body and emotions too

Depends: In the first trimester, there can be implantation bleeding from the growing placenta. In the second and third trimester, bleeding can occur from problems with placenta or problems with cervix. Any bleeding in pregnancy needs to be evaluated by a doctor either in triage at labor & delivery, in the er or in doctor's office. Sometimes bleeding is benign and a one time occur but always let doctor know.
