In brief: Placenta often

Bleeding in pregnancy can come from many things, often placenta vessels.
The cause, amount, frequency and timing of bleeding can have very different effects on how the pregnancy progresses. All bleeding should be reported to OB provider immediately. If heavy, associated with pain, accompanied by contractions, calling OB and being seen in hospital are needed to determine cause and course of action.
