Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
I sometimes cough and get a blob of bright red blood or streaks in it what could this be? I'm 7 months pregnant no embolism been checked and clear xray
IM 25 weeks pregnant and have had a severe cold / cough this week. Bloody nose the past 3 days, mucus is a very dark green. Today my phlegm had blood?
See a doctor: With these sorts of symptoms, you need answers. I would worry that your platelet count might have dropped as a result of the viral infection - allowing the blood to become thinner, such that you'd have nose bleeding and blood in the sputum. Hopefully you're plugged into an Ob/Gyn practice - I would call them and try to get seen today. If it's after hours and you're not doing well- go to the ER. ...Read more

I just threw up and it was bloody (about 0.5ml of blood) without coughing. The blood just came effortlessly after the actual vomit. I'm 11weeks pregnant?
Usually: That can be related to recurrent vomiting. Your esophagus (food tube) can have little blood vessels rupture from the trauma of vomiting.

I never had nosebleeds before, but I just did, and choked and coughed up a huge blob of blood afterwards. I'm pregnant, and dizzy should I be worried?
Get it checked out: Nosebleeds, or epistaxis, is not uncommon in the winter due to the dry air and use of heat in the house and workplace. The issue with regard to pregnancy is that thrombocytopenia, or low platelet count, could be a reason for the nosebleed in someone who has never had one before. This should be excluded as a potential cause. ...Read more
My wife is 8 weeks pregnant and coughed up blood. What does this mean. Her sinuses and nose is fine?
I'm 8 weeks pregnant I've had a cold for the past 2 weeks. I have been coughing up mucus and blood also when I blow my nose. Is this normal?
Common: Pregnancy increases the vascularity of your nasal passages. Sometimes prolonged coughing during pregnancy can cause you to get a nose bleed and this can show up when you cough and also in your nasal mucus. Its important to mention it to your ob to make sure there isn't something else going on. (For example, TB can make you cough up blood but its uncommon.) Best wishes! ...Read more
What would be some reasons I could be coughing up blood? I am 10 weeks pregnant, and have a history of PEs. I am on lovenox once a day. I went to the ER last night and my d dimer test was. 51. Every other blood test was normal. I am still coughing up some
This worries me: Hi. With a history of recurrent PE, you pregnant and coughing up blood is obviously concerning for both you and the fetus. Your D dimer is barely elevated, but with your history and current status, I'd say your risk is high for PE. Unfortunately, diagnostics use either high dose X-ray or radioactivity, and are frowned upon in pregnancy. You're followed by HROB, I'm certain. Some tough decisions. ...Read more

Yes: We do not consider it safe for a pregnant woman to donate blood. Blood volume increases dramatically over the course of pregnancy in order to support proper fetal circulation. The loss of blood from the system would likely be tolerated, but the system is not designed for that. Given the potential risks and the lack of anything to be gained, blood donation is not allowed during pregnancy. ...Read more
