Could be miscarriage: If you are early in your pregnancy and having heavy bleeding, i would be worried about miscarrying. Often times you will have cramps and bleeding. Is it heavy like a period? Do you have a follow up appointment? If you are soaking a pad in 30 - 60 min, you need to be seen in the er. Your OB or gp could order blood work to follow pregnancy hormones if there is a question about miscarriage. ...Read more

Possibly: There are 3 causes of early pregnancy bleeding - #1 Miscarriage, #2 Ectopic or Tubal pregnancy, #3 Bleeding around the sac that the baby develops in. The only way to know for sure which of these three things is going on is to seek the help of your OB doctor or the closest emergency room. Most likely they will do an ultrasound to figure out which of the 3 possibilities is going on in your case. ...Read more

I'm 6 weeks pregnant & started bleeding brown blood which turned light pink to red. I have slight cramps and very nervous i'm miscarrying. Is this normal?

I'm 6 weeks pregnant & started bleeding brown blood which turned light pink to red. I have slight cramps and very nervous i'm miscarrying. Is this normal?

Very possibly: No bleeding is truly normal with pregnancy. Some is less worrisome. Does require an immediate check up, labs and possibly an ultrasound. The labs confirm blood type and how far along pregnancy is. Ultrasound, if appropriate, looks for ectopic or other possibilities. Initial and repeat labs with pelvic and bed rest may be all that is needed. Does need attention! ...Read more

I'm about 6 weeks pregnant, went to ER yesterday because i had some bleeding, pinkish-red....Doc did a sonogram, sac was present but no fetal pole?

I'm about 6 weeks pregnant, went to ER yesterday because i had some bleeding, pinkish-red....Doc did a sonogram, sac was present but no fetal pole?

Maybe normal?: There are specific parameters to judge whether early pregnancy is abnormal. Based on measurements. Unfortunately, dates are not always reliable. I would not expect to see a fetal pole unless sac diameter is at least 16-20mm on transvaginal study (25mm abdominal scan). So if they said it was normal, believe it! ...Read more

You : You need to be under the care of a physician for your pregnancy. If you have an insurance issue, each state has programs that allow every woman to have pre-natal care regardless of coverage or lack therof.

Please reply, i would appreciate an update. ...Read more

I am 6weeks and 3 days pregnant.This morning i noticed bright red bleeding when i wiped.My husband and i had sex  last night.Could this be the reason ?

Likely: The increase in blood supply which occurs during pregnancy often causes the surface covering of the cervix to be "friable, " or easily disturbed, by a pap smear or during intercourse.

Possibly: You must see your ob-gyn for serial beta HCG levels (blood tests) and an ultrasound. The ultrasound may not show anything yet as you are very early. The sac usually appears around 5 weeks after the last menstrual period onset and a fetal "pole" or echo with a heart beat appears around 6 and 1/2 to 7 weeks. In most normal pregnancies, the beta level doubles about every 3 days. ...Read more

Is it possible to have bright red bleeding and still be pregnant in the first month?

Is it possible to have bright red bleeding and still be pregnant in the first month?

Yes, it is possible: Bleeding in early pregnancy is unfortunately not uncommon and most often is of unclear cause. It is often attributed to "implantation" or to "placentation issues" and resolves spontaneously.
A combination of your other symptoms, your betaHCG level and your pelvic sonogram findings may provide you and your doctor a sense of direction. Consult your gynecologist. ...Read more

I had sex one day ago and I started to bleed a few hours after and my bleeding is a bright red em I pregnant or is that normal

Probably not: Some bleeding after intercourse is not unusual. It doesn't represent pregnancy at all, but it also doesn't mean you aren't. If there is any question, take a home pregnancy test. As for the bleeding, it should resolve on it's own. You need to see your doctor if it persists or pain worsens. ...Read more

19weeks pregnant. Been bleeding bright red to brown off and on since 13 weeks. Ultrasounds ay baby is good. Why am I having this problem?

Hard to know: You may be having a chronic separation of the placenta that seals over, bleeds, re-seals and so on. Perhaps it is from your cervix. There can be other causes. Keep in close contact with your ob. If continues, maybe you need consultation with a high risk pregnancy doctor if available. ...Read more

Check a test : If you are sexually active pregnancy is always possible. We usually suspect pregnnacy when you are having no periods not more though. Check a test and you will have your answer.

Many possibilities: Usually bleeding during or after sex comes from the cervix or the vagina--not the uterus. Possibilities that could make your cervix bleed include infection, polyp, and cancer.
Possibilities that could make your vagina bleed would be too rough sex, toys, or if this was your first time having intercourse. ...Read more
