I was diagnosis with placenta previa after some spotting. I'm 15 weeks and still spotting-light brown. Is this normal? If this will correct when?
Placenta previa: I'm not sure of your question - is placenta previa normal - NO. Is bleeding with previa normal - yes. Spotting just light brown sounds like either old blood or very slow bleed, which is better than brisk, bright red bleeding.

Attached over cervix: Placenta previa is when the placenta attaches low inside the uterus, near theopening of the birth canal/cervix. This can cause problems during the birth process because when the cervix starts dilating it could tear the blood vessels in the placenta, depriving the baby of blood and making mom lose too much blood. To be safe, many ob's recommend a c-section instead of vaginal birth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
