Bleeding in Early Pregnancy (Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond)
Bleeding at any stage of pregnancy is not considered normal and advice from a midwife or doctor should be sought. Bleeding from the birth canal before 20 weeks is called a threatened abortion or miscarriage. The bleeding may or may not have abdominal pain associated with it. The blood loss may be brown spotting, blood stained discharge or bright red bleeding. The amount of bleeding is proportional to the risk of miscarriage, the greater the bleeding the greater the risk of miscarriage (Beischer Mackay, 1998). Abdominal pain associated with the bleeding is not considered a good sign. Around one in four women will experience vaginal bleeding in the first three months of pregnancy. Of these women 70-80% will continue their pregnancies to full term (Bennett Brown, 1993). Is there anything I can do to help prevent the threatened miscarriage becoming a miscarriage?
There is probably nothing that can prevent a threatened miscarriage becoming a miscarriage (Davis, 1997). However certain strategies are certainly worth a try. If symptoms are acute, bed rest may be recommended. Research to date has not found bed rest to be helpful, although little research has been carried out. It is important that the woman’s preferences regarding bed rest are taken into consideration (Enkin, Keirse, Renfrew Neilson, 1995). Avoidance of sexual intercourse is advised during any period of vaginal bleeding. Some recommend that sexual intercourse be avoided for two to three weeks after the bleeding has settled (Bennett Brown, 1993). What tests or treatments may I expect if I am experiencing bleeding in pregnancy?
Ultrasound is the main test offered to women experiencing bleeding in pregnancy. An ultrasound can establish whether the baby is alive or dead and can help predict if the pregnancy will continue or end in miscarriage. There are a small number of pregnancies where the baby is alive but is destined to miscarry, ultrasound cannot predict this group with any certainty.
Blood tests to detect placental hormonal levels may be carried out. Low levels of these hormones indicates that there is a high risk of miscarriage. Other blood tests that may be performed include testing for haemoglobin levels (if there has been heavy bleeding) and blood typing (to identify women who have a negative blood group).
Over a period of many years the administration of various hormones to pregnant women, in an attempt to prevent miscarriage, have been tried. The results of research found no benefit. The miscarriage rate stayed the same (Beischer Mackay, 1988; Enkin, Keirse, Renfrew Neilson, 1995). What impact will bleeding have on my pregnancy?
Naturally most couples will worry about the long term implications of bleeding in the early pregnancy. Unfortunately there can be no assurances given that the pregnancy will continue normally. However ultrasound and hormonal levels can provide a fairly reliable picture of the potential outcome of the pregnancy. If the pregnancy continues past 20 weeks around 95% of babies will survive and the incidence of any major abnormalities is increased by only 1.3% (Beischer Mackay, 1988). How will I cope with the uncertainty of bleeding during pregnancy?
It is very normal to feel agitated or upset at the possibility of loosing your baby. Having a supportive environment with empathetic and understanding people around you is a big help. Everybody copes in a different fashion, there is no right or wrong way. A supportive health care professional is invaluable. The health care professional can guide you through any tests, provide you with factual information about what is happening and also they can provide ongoing support. Reference List Beischer, N.

I think I am pregnant, I have done a dip stick test but the doctor apt. is next week to confirm. This week was a very busy week and tonight I went to a personal training session and it was a hard work out. More weights not much cardio. Tonight I noticed a brownish discharge. I fear this may be bleeding and am worried about the baby. I think I am about 5 weeks. What would you suggest? Is this something I should get checked straight away or will my appointment on Thursday be ok? Thanks Jane Palmer Mar 18, 2011 2:17pm [ 2 ]
Sorry Vannessa in the delay in replying - I've been out with clients all this week. Brown discharge is usually old blood - which is much more reassuring than bright red blood. If you are experiencing any vaginal bleeding it is advisable to stop exercising an seek advise of a midwife or doctor. Do know that a small amount of vaginal discharge is quite common in early pregnancy and most of those pregnancies continue normally. Once bleeding settles you can resume exercise. I would however avoid very strenous exercise. A great book on exercise in pregnancy is one by Dr James Clapp called "Exercising through your pregnancy". He has researched women exercising in pregnancy (including athletes) and gives great guidelines on what is an ideal level of exercise in your chosen field of exercise (including weights). natalie Mar 20, 2011 11:49am [ 3 ]
I discovered last tuesday that i was pregnant after going to the hospital with bad cramps in my right side and had been bleeding for 8 days. Bright red blood. My hcg level was 235 on tuesday then jumped to 270 in two days. The doctors suspect an ectopic pregancy which is shattering to me. Have to go back on thursday for another ultrasound and blood test. Treatment options have been discussed but they both scare me. I feel pregant naturally with my 3 year old. We have been trying for almost two years and now this is happening. I can't even deal with it because i'm in limbo at the moment. Please help. Tony Mar 31, 2011 2:41pm [ 4 ]
Hello, My partner is approx 5 weeks pregnant and yesterday she had some spotting and this morning when she went to the toilet more blood came out. She describes it as if she is having her period and she has pains in her back and stomach. She went to the hospital today and they did a hormone test. can you please let me know if this seems serious as everyone is saying it is bad news however i have been reading that 30 % of women experience bleeding. Should i be worried? or is it normal for women to bleed around 5 weeks? Thanks for your help Jane Palmer Mar 31, 2011 4:03pm [ 5 ]
Hi Tony - I am sorry your partner is having problems. Bleeding in early pregnancy is quite common and many pregnancies continue normally. However if the bleeding is associated with cramping - the outlook for the pregnancy is not as positive. The chances of miscarriage is higher. Unfortunately you just have to wait it out to see what is going to be the outcome. Sorry I can't give you more positive news. Joyce Longs Apr 8, 2011 2:59am [ 6 ]
Hi,I had a miscarriage last August 2010.My LMP was 8/03/2011,i have done a home pgt but its negative.This afternoon i started having slight cramps and a dull feeling around my abdomen later i noticed light pink,brown discharge i suspect its bleeding.Please tell me what to do because i really dont want to loose this pregnancy Jane Palmer Apr 8, 2011 10:40am [ 7 ]
Dear Natalie I am so sorry for taking so long to respond - I hope that you didn't have an ectopic pregnancy. I have my fingers crossed for you. Jane Palmer Apr 8, 2011 10:46am [ 8 ]
Dear Joyce - Home Pregnancy Tests are usually around 99% accurate on or before when your periods are due. If the test is negative it is unlikely (but not impossible) that you are pregnant. Your cycle may be slightly delayed this month. Unfortunately the only thing to do is to wait and see what happens. Ashley O'Leary Apr 11, 2011 8:31am [ 9 ]
Hi, I had a miscarriage at the end of October 2010. I did a pregnancy test last week about 5 days before my period is due to start that came up negative tho I still felt like i could be even tho I didn't have a lot of what they say are normal signs that your pregnant eg: sore breasts ( i did have that last time) tho I have sore nipples, I then did one 2 days later that told me I was pregnant. I was lightly spotting in the morning almost all last week tho it stopped on friday, it now monday one day after the positive test and there was a little bit of bright red blood this morning. Could I be miscarrying again? Jane Palmer Apr 11, 2011 2:15pm [ 10 ]
Dear Ashley - Bleeding is common in early pregnancy and many pregnancies continue normally. However it can be the first sign that you may miscarry again. Please consult your midwife or doctor for advise. Skye Apr 14, 2011 8:36am [ 11 ]
I'm about 4 weeks pregnant and I have a bit of blood in the morning and then nothing for the rest of the day and this happens on and off (not every morning) and it is normally only a tiny bit. This morning there was a bit more then what there has been. What could this be? Jane Palmer Apr 14, 2011 9:19am [ 12 ]
Dear Skye - sometimes in early pregnancy you can have what is known as implantation bleeding. Alternatively you might be having a threatened miscarraige (this doesn't mean you will necessarily have a miscarriage). Contact your midwife or doctor for advise. sanjana Apr 16, 2011 9:02pm [ 13 ]
Hi, I am 5weeks pregnant and today i saw bleeding which was not heavy nor spotting. I am worried thinking whether i can have miscarriage which i dont want. I have PCOD problem too. Please suggest me. Jane Palmer Apr 17, 2011 7:44am [ 14 ]
With any bleeding it is advisable to consult your midwife or doctor. kim Apr 17, 2011 10:15pm [ 15 ]
Im 16wks preg and have been bleeding when i go the toiet.It started a few days ago with only spotting however the bleeding seems to be getting stronger. I have had a ultrasound which showed a healthy baby and closed cervix. My doc wants to see me in 3 weeks however didnt say anything about seeing him sooner if the bleeding continues. should i be getting a ultra sound done to check my cervix everytime i bleed or just wait the 3 weeks? Jane Palmer Apr 18, 2011 1:36am [ 16 ]
Hi Kim - If the bleeding is getting heavier contact your doctor for advice. Out of hours if you are concerned with the amount of bleeding contact your local hospital for advice. The Australian Government has a Pregnancy, Birth and Baby Helpline you can ring 1800 882 436. vianca Apr 22, 2011 10:33am [ 17 ]

Hi there I am pregnant with my 2nd baby an I am bleeding for 2days now it is just like a period to me. I am very worried about it! I have already been to the doctors an they have taken a scan an said they can see the pregnancy sack an it looks okay. But I do have to go back in 14 days. I am not clotting an don't ave very much pain the best way for me 2 describe it as like a period. I'd there any chance that's what it could be. Thanks Jane Palmer Apr 28, 2011 6:48am [ 19 ]
Hi Tasha - A period is where the lining of the uterus is shed. In pregnancy this is not possible as the lining of ther uterus is needed for the pregnancy. The bleeding is coming from another source. Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do at the moment except wait. Hopefully the bleeding will settle. Kim Apr 28, 2011 4:26pm [ 20 ]
Hi, I am 6 weeks pregnant started bleeding night before last I have been to my Dr had an ultrasound blood tests with no real results yet I am booked for next tuesday for more blood test's to see if me levels have increased but was wondering if it is normal to be told to stay home from work while the Dr figues this problem out? Thanks Jane Palmer Apr 29, 2011 8:06am [ 21 ]
Dear Kim - Midwives and doctors will offer advice they feel appropriate to the situation. So while some will advise to stay at home from work - others may not (this advise will depend greatly on your individual situation). Once the advise was bed rest if you experienced bleeding in early pregnancy - but subsequent research has shown this does not improve outcomes. Strenous activity is not advisable if you are experiencing bleeding in early pregnancy. You could ask your doctor why they have advised you to stay home from work and whether there is any evidence that this advise is helpful for your situation. rashu May 1, 2011 2:00pm [ 22 ]
hi , I am nine weeks pregnant.sometimes bleeding is come when i go to the toilet.Last time i had ultrasound but it shows baby is good.I want to know why bleeding is come if everything is normal.what i need to do? Jane Palmer May 2, 2011 6:25pm [ 23 ]
When there is bleeding in early pregnancy - the cause is often not identified. Hopefully your bleeding will stop soon. Di May 3, 2011 9:48am [ 24 ]
Hi, I had an abortion 2mths ago and received my period as normal the following month, though last month it was late so i did a preg test and it was negative but a week later i did another one and it came out positive and then 4 days later i got my period and it was very heavy and only had bleeding for 2 days. I did another pregnancy test yesturday and it was positive again. Could i be pregnant and maybe loosing the baby ? Jane Palmer May 3, 2011 10:12am [ 25 ]
Hi Di - It is hard to know what is going on. You'll need to see your midwife or doctor so they can do a check up and let you know what is happening. LAURA May 9, 2011 10:36pm [ 26 ]
HI, I had a missed miscarriage in early feb (i was 13wk 3 days but the baby had died at 10wk 6dys), consequently i had to have an ERPC on Feb 3 2011. I had a period on March 13 2011, and have had no period since. i have done two HPT's and had pregnancy confirmed by the GP, only via a urine dipstick. Im apprehensive however that this is just due to remaining hormones for the previoud m/c. Is that possible? do you think i could be pregnant again? ive had some symptoms identical to my previous pregnancy. Also had one small episode of light pink discharge last thursday and passed only two very small (about 2mm each) strands of what looked like old brown blood. Im so confused, do you think this could be a sign of a miscarriage again?
My obs/gyn cant see me until next week to scan me, until then im in complete limbo. kristie May 10, 2011 4:27pm [ 27 ]
I am 4-5 weeks pregnant, and started bleeding this morning while I was at the Radiology Clinic for a scan, They rushed me straight in and did a external and internal exanination, they could not see any oblious signs of tearing or as to why i would be bleeding. My doctor took blood and told me its a positive sign that there are no cramps and my bleeding is rather light(much the same a when u have a weak bladder and cant hold on to little bits). A friend whom has Three Healthy Kids said that the Doctors would not of let me go home if they thought i was having a miscarrage, they would of kept me in for obsevation over night. Is no cramps and light bleeding a Positive sign and i have every chance of carrying to full term? Jane Palmer May 11, 2011 3:06pm [ 28 ]
Hi Laura - If you've had a positive pregnancy test now you will be pregnant. Pregnancy hormones decline even before a miscarriage occurs. The old brown blood you've seen could be a sign of miscarriage again, however this pregnancy may continue on normally. Only time will tell. Jane Palmer May 11, 2011 3:09pm [ 29 ]
Hi Kristie - It is a positive sign that you haven't had any cramping with your bleeding. Hopefully your pregnancy will continue normally. Contact your midwife or doctor if your bleeding increases. Brone May 11, 2011 10:51pm [ 30 ]
Hi, My doctor told me today that I am 4 weeks + 4 days preganant. I have feeling that my stomach is swolen from inside.I feel pain all the time from inside. I have a small very faint brownish spot. Is it dangerous to have pain in stomach all the time or its normal.Waiting for your reply. chelle May 13, 2011 12:32pm [ 31 ]
my daughter is 7 weeks pregnant.. she has had spotting for most of the 7 weeks. some times brown but sometimes bright red. she had a bout of intense pain last week on her right side but an ultrasound showed no ectopic.. (to my knowledge) she is getting down about it and is talking abortion , i keep trying to tell her that the spotting may stop and she will go on to produce a healthy child. im worried about her. Does spotting stop around the end of 1st trimester ? and will the continuous spotting cause aneamia? Jane Palmer May 16, 2011 8:10am [ 32 ]
Dear Chelle - You are correct the spotting may stop and the pregnancy continue normally. If a miscarriage does not occur - the bleeding usually settles in the first trimester. Heavy bleeding can result in anaemia - spotting usually does not. Eppan May 24, 2011 5:27pm [ 33 ]
This is to inform you that my wife was pregnant by normal after 6 years of marriage. My wife was 12th week in pregency stage and yesterday she experienced a bleeding of high discharge and immediately we have visted our doctor and his found that baby is having movement and heartbeat is ok.She provide with an ingestion for stopping the bleeeding and in the morning my grace of God we have found that bleeding is completely stopped.Now she is taking bed rest and request you to kindly guide is their is any chance of miscarrage and what precaution to be taken. Jane Palmer May 24, 2011 10:11pm [ 34 ]
Hi Eppan - It is reassuring that your baby's heart beat is okay and your wife's bleeding has stopped. Hopefully your wife's pregnancy will continue normally. It is important to avoid strenuous exercise and sexual intercourse. Gastine Jun 15, 2011 11:07am [ 35 ]
About a month ago now i was away on holidays and i started to bleed, at first i thought it was just my period coming early so thought nothing of it. but i only had the one bleed. for a week or so afterwards i had some spotting but it was brownish in colour. I just thought this was a strange period as i have only had a few since they came back from breast feeding my daughter. then the other day i did a pregnancy test as i was feeling a lot like it did when pregnant with my daughter the first test i did at night and it came out a very faint positive, so i done another one in the morning 2 days later and it came out a definate positive. should i be concerned about the bleeding now even though it has stopped. thanks Jane Palmer Jun 16, 2011 5:10pm [ 36 ]
Hi Gastine - You can experience what is known as implantation bleeding and it is very common and the pregnancy often continues normally. It is great the bleeding has stopped. Talk to your midwife or doctor about any concerns you might have. Rebecca Nolan Jun 21, 2011 9:45am [ 37 ]
i am now 16 weeks pregnant with my second child, in the first 14 weeks i was bleeding off and on really heavily with bright red blood not for the past two weeks i have been getting brown blood, i have seen my obstetrician and he said everything is ok and the bleeding should stop at 16 weeks but it has not stopped, should i go and see him again or just wait another 3 weeks until i have my 20 week scan Jane Palmer Jun 21, 2011 10:30am [ 38 ]
Dear Rebecca - Why don't you call your doctor's surgery and ask whether or not you need to make an appointment to see him earlier? Tara Jun 21, 2011 9:06pm [ 39 ]
Hi There, I am almost 10 weeks pregnant with my 4th pregnancy and I've had a stringy blood-stained discharge every 3-4days or so for about 3 weeks. There really isn't that much blood colour to it but as it keeps re-occurring is it worth getting my OB or GP to check it out? I'm just a bit concerned as I've not had this before with my other pregnancies. My first was a blighted ovum and my body didn't miscarry naturally so I had a D C at 13weeks. Ive since had 2 babies and with this one I had an ultrasound at week 7 and all was ok... Fetal pole heartbeat. I just don't know if it's something to worry about? Jane Palmer Jun 22, 2011 7:28am [ 40 ]
Hi Tara - with any form of vaginal bleeding you should let your doctor or midwife know. Hopefully it will turn out to be nothing. It is reassuring that you've had a normal ultrasound at 7 weeks. Archana Nair Jun 23, 2011 8:54pm [ 41 ]
Hi, My period cycle is within 35 days. If it is on may 19 then next will be june 19 like that. This month I thought I am pregnant , so i did both urine test and blood test. But both went negative. Today i got periods and bleeding was very less, now it is stopped and brown discharge has come immediately after that. I have started taking dates so that bleeding should come properly. I consulted my doctor, she told me to wait for 2-3 days. If there is no bleeding then they will do blood test again. She told me that this may be scope of early pregnancy, is it so? please someone reply. candice Jun 28, 2011 4:30pm [ 42 ]
9 weeks pregnant, bleed lightly 2 weeks ago and heavily with a few clots a few days ago. read so much on the internet, most positive. Unfortunately the ultrasound showed he stopped growing about a week ago and no heart beat detected. I asked for a trans vaginal ultra sound to make sure - but sadly, same diagnosis. Doctor said with bleeding and clots you only have 5o% viable pregnancy. so sad. He also said if the pregnancy is healthy, nothing can deter it - even being starved in a concentration camp. Hope this helps someone. Never easy. Natalie Clerke Jul 5, 2011 2:31pm [ 43 ]
Im 11 and a half weeks, and for the past 2 days ive been bleeding. Its not brown but its not bright red either. Theres mucus with the blood on some occasions. But theres not enough blood for a sanitary pad. I just wipe and there it is. Im also getting cramping.
Went to my local doctor yesterday, i had a blood test done and i have another one done a week later. she also said there wasn't any use to have a ultrasound cos i have a ultrasound on thursday for my 12 week scan.She also said if i get bad pains to go straight to the hospital. Ive started reading on here and im beginning to think i have lost my baby. My symptoms i think have gone. I had heartburn and its gone. but i do think i still have those butterflies for when the baby moves? Jane Palmer Jul 13, 2011 8:00am [ 44 ]
Hi Archana - I am sorry for the delay in replying. I guess you know the answer to your question now. Yes the symptoms your describe do sound like early pregnancy. What we know as implantation bleeding. However some women get an unusual period. So the only way to know what is going on is to wait a couple of days and do another pregnancy test.
Hi Natalie - I hope that your pregnancy proceeds normally and that everything is okay on your ultrasound scan at 12 weeks. Mandy Jul 27, 2011 8:52am [ 45 ]
I am currently 4weeks 3 days pregnant and I have had on and off red spotting for 5 days with no cramps or nothing like heavy or Chunky...only when I wipe... Please tell me it's not a miscarriage and that it can be normal. I have my first prenatal appt. Tues 8/2/2011. My spotting came on right around the time my normal period would start... I have taken 3 pregnant tests and all were positive. Jane Palmer Jul 27, 2011 4:27pm [ 46 ]
Hi Mandy - it is not unusual to get spotting in early pregnancy. Avoid sexual intercourse while you are spotting. Hopefully it will settle down and everything will continue normally. Sometimes the bleeding does get heavier and leads to miscarriage. Call your midwife or doctor if you are concerned or the bleeding increases. Danielle Jul 28, 2011 2:00pm [ 47 ]
Hi. Ive previously had 2 pregnancies and 2 healthy babies. Last month 1st June i misscarried at what was meant to be 9 weeks but the baby was only measuring 6 weeks. I passed the baby naturally. I hadnt had a period since then so tested last week and got a positive. I used a clear blue test which said im 4-5weeks. Last night after a long walk I got a little brown discharge. Does this mean the same things happening? Jane Palmer Jul 29, 2011 12:08pm [ 48 ]
Dear Danielle - hopefully the brown discharge is implantation bleeding and not the first sign of another miscarriage. Unfortunately only time will tell. Contact your midwife or doctor if vaginal discharge continues. Christina Jul 30, 2011 8:49am [ 49 ]
Hi just wanted to know what you think I am 13dpo I have long cycles 45 days since getting off bc but I know when I ovulated currently I am having brown and bright red spotting since 10 dpo cramping on that day but none since. BTT still above coverline all HPT done on 10 dpo and 12 dpo neg should I assume this is not my month and take the red spotting as a period? I usually spot 2 day or less before I start but it's never stayed the same without getting heavier. This time is longer and not even enough to fill a pantyliner. I've had 3 pregnancies full term no problems. Just got off bc pills after 7 yrs debra Jul 31, 2011 8:26pm [ 50 ]
I am 6 weeks pregnant and am 41 and went for blood test on Friday. Over the weekend I have been bleeding - not a lot but a bit more than spotting. Its pinkish in colour and there are no clots. I am booked in for a scan next Friday should I wait till then to see or contact GP? Lydia Aug 2, 2011 3:40am [ 51 ]
Hi. For a month I had just "felt" like I was pregnant. I had minor nausea, sensitive breasts, and frequent urination even when I hadn't drank hardly anything during the day, and was unimaginably tired. 2 weeks in I was spotting brown, and assumed my period was coming, but it only last 2 days so lightly I didn't even need a pad. Symptoms aside, I just felt "different" so I took a pregnancy test after one month, and got a negative result.
I assumed I was really not pregnant, till 2 days later when I remembered my mom (who had 5 healthy kids), got a negative on every single pregnancy test she's ever taken, including a blood test once. One time her doctor was convinced she was pregnant, till after 3 months my mom demanded an ultrasound. The doctor was floored when he realized how far along she was when he was when the blood test came out negative. So I have alot less confidence in the pregnancy test now, and the symptoms continue.
The symptoms continued, and this week I have been bleeding brown blood, its not what I'd consider "light" but its light enough that I don't really need to change my pad till the end of the day. I have been bleeding like this for 4 days, and when I looked it up I found mostly signs of pregnancy. Its usually the lightest in the morning when I wake up, and I feel like the more I walk around during the day, the heavier it is.
My boyfriend and I decided not to take another pregnancy test and/or blood test till the end of the month so I don't worry too much. I am concerned about the type of bleeding though. I haven't had any cramps or clotting, Usually my periods are very heavy with much clotting and pain.
I understand I need to go to a doctor, and as of now I might not actually be pregnant since my test came up negative, but I would be happy to see your opinion on this.
This is all quite embarrassing actually. I feel like I'm being too paranoid about being pregnant even though I got a negative. I even went as far as to pick up a baby name book I saw marked down. I was so certain I was pregnant that maybe I'm just in denial now? Its not like now would be an opportune time in my life to have a baby, but the thought of it is still very exciting. I feel like a giddy naive teenager even though I'm not, I promise xD
I look forward to hearing a reply from you regardless of what it is. Sorry for blabbering on so long. Since I just moved I don't have anyone here to talk to about these things besides my boyfriend, and besides the fact that he's 100% supportive and we plan on getting married, I'd rather not stress him out too much with this talk since he is a guy. Kate Aug 2, 2011 3:12pm [ 52 ]
I am about 5 weeks pregnant and noticed blood last night. The day before I went out berry picking by boat and next day started bleeding. I am worried because my lower back hurts and theres only blood when I wipe. Do you think my baby will be ok? theresa Aug 2, 2011 4:41pm [ 53 ]
I'm 9weeks and two days pregnet well i spotted at 6weeks and all was fine.However my husband and i had sex tonight n when i went to the bathroom red blood? Im so worried because last feb i had a misscarige.should i be worried or is it normal????? Jane Palmer Aug 6, 2011 8:07am [ 54 ]
Dear Lydia - sometimes in early pregnancy you can have very light bleeding and while 99% accurate pregnancy tests can occasionally be negative if a woman is in very early pregnancy. Alternatively you may just be having a very light period. If you are uncertain if you are pregnant visit your midwife or doctor for advise. Jane Palmer Aug 6, 2011 8:09am [ 55 ]
Hi Kate - It is hard to know what is going on. Your bleeding may pass without further incident or alternatively this may be the first sign of a miscarriage. Let your midwife or doctor know about your bleeding. They will be able to provide some advise and support. Jane Palmer Aug 6, 2011 8:10am [ 56 ]
Hi Theresa - it isn't unsual to have some slight bleeding after intercourse in pregnancy. If the bleeding continues consult your midwife or doctor. Jane Palmer Aug 6, 2011 8:13am [ 57 ]
Hi Debra - sorry about the delay in replying. I've been on holidays. I expect you've had an ultrasound by now. Don't hesitate to contact your midwife or doctor if you have bleeding in pregnancy. They will be able to provide you with information and advise. tisha Aug 7, 2011 2:10pm [ 58 ]
I am 7 week pergant and have light bleeding(brown with a few little clots)i when to hospital they said to go to my normall doctor they did not seem to think that it was a problem.really worried .. Jane Palmer Aug 7, 2011 5:14pm [ 59 ]
Hi Tisha - unfortunately there isn't a lot that can be done when you are experiencing bleeding in pregnancy. Hopefully it will settle down and everything will continue normally. Sometimes an ultrasound is ordered to check what is happening - other than that you can only wait and see. I understand you are really worried.

Hi, i am also pregnant still the duration of pregnancy is not clear to me as my LMP was on 15June'11. I did HPT on 27th July n it came out to be faintly positive, visited Dr also did Blood test that also came faintly positive then did Beta HCG test which gave 122 again repeated after 3days it rose to 150 thenn Dr doubted that it could b very very weak preg so we might terminate it did ultra sound also everything was normal only she said that Uterus line seems to b thin.That day itself did BetaHCG again and it came 300+ then she told me to continue with Duphaston tablets and come after 7 days i.e. on 9th Aug, but since yesterday evening i m having slight bleeding with brownish red discharge.Called up Dr she asked if it is very heavy bleeding with pain also, so i said no, then she told me to take Duphaston tab 3times a day instead of 2 times and to come on 8thAug for that beta HCG and might b she will do scanning. What do u suggest is every thing fine with me Jane Palmer Aug 9, 2011 7:33am [ 61 ]
Hi Poonam - Bleeding can be an indication that you may miscarry (but hopefully not). You will know more today after you see your doctor. Tammy Aug 9, 2011 1:39pm [ 62 ]
Hello Jane, I am hoping for some info. I went to the ED last Tuesday with bleeding and stomach pains. The main reason I went was because of the pain and I thought I also had blood in my urine, so thought I had some kind of infection. They did blood tests and said I was pregnant and was either an early pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy or I was miscarrying. My Hcg level was 160. I though my LMP was 30 June, but upon leaving the ED had second thoughts (as it all became a bit of a shock). As I recall thinking when my period started it was earlier than normal (CD 21 instead of CD25/26), so I have been bleeding 25th July. I have had 3 blood tests since Tuesday. Thursday the Hcg was 320, and Friday and Saturday the levels were still increasing. I had an ultrasound yesterday and they could not see anything but suspect an ectopic pregnancy, so I have had more blood tests this morning. The bleeding has gone from being dark (last week), to pink/light tapered off (after the 1st internal ultrasound) and then gone bright red (now after the 2nd internal ultrasound). I have very little pain and the bleeding is not heavy, only really when I wipe. I guess I am just wondering if because the levels are continuing to go up and the bleeding isn't heavy or painful, is there a chance that it is just too early to see the baby on the ultrasound? The only things they have seen, is on the 1st ultrasound they saw a cyst, but said that could be a result of recently being pregnant and the ultrasound yesterday they said they could see 2 masses, but weren't sure what they were. I guess what I am wanting to know is, is there a chance that if the dates were wrong it was just too early to see anything? The Dr hasn't really said much but the ultrasound tech said he was leaning towards it being an ectopic pregnancy? If it is an ectopic pregnacy, what happens? How to they finally confirm it? It is so stressful, everyone keeps saying have this test and then wait, or if there is heavy bleeding or pain see ED, but I feel like I am so in the dark and I don't know what will happen if is is an ectopic or what to look out for? Mel Aug 13, 2011 5:44pm [ 63 ]
I am 8 weeks pregnant and have noticed brown discharge, only when i go to the toilet. I have had no back pain cramps e.t.c. Ive spoken to a few people i know who have been pregnant and they have all experiaced the same thing. I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and baby was alive and well with a strong heartbeat. Is this normal? im just freaking out a litte. Lovella Aug 20, 2011 4:00am [ 64 ]
I've been bleeding for 3 weeks now. It's not my normal period and this morning I had to consult my obstetrician. She confirmed that I am pregnant and now it scares me that there could already be something wrong with the baby because of the continious bleeding. Good thing I was able to browse through this site and somehow lessen my worries. Thanks! Jane Palmer Aug 22, 2011 6:39pm [ 65 ]
Tammy I expect you have the answers to your questions now. Hannah Dahlen has written an article on ectopic pregnancy that you may find helpful.
Mel let you midwife or doctor know about the bleeding. Often the only thing you can do when there is bleeding is wait and see if the bleeding settles down
I am glad Lovella that you've found this information helpful. I hope your bleeding stops soon Louise Aug 29, 2011 5:57am [ 66 ]
I am trying to conceive and at 9 days past ovulation i had a negative pregnancy test. I started bleeding and it was enough to think it was my period coming early (i have reasonably light periods). The bleeding lasted just under three days and i then got a positive pregnancy test. It has been six days since i started bleeding and i am still getting positive pregnancy tests but the line isnt getting darker. My period was due today. Is there a chance i am pregnant or is it more likely that the pregnancy hormones are still around after a very early miscarriage? Jane Palmer Aug 29, 2011 6:55am [ 67 ]
Hi Louise - A positive pregnancy test means you are pregnant. Pregnancy hormones drop very quickly after a miscarriage. Contact your midwife or doctor for advise. stacey Aug 29, 2011 1:31pm [ 68 ]
Hi I am breastfeeding my four month old and a week ago I had some brown spotting during the day and mild cramps, I went to the toilet at night and there was bright pink blood when I wiped so I put on a pad thinking my period was about to restart, the next morning there was just abit more of brown blood and that was it. During that day and the next it felt like my uterus was full and about to explode which I took as a sign my period would star and since then there has been nothing, 2 hpt and both neg the last done nearly a week ago, your thoughts please. Jane Palmer Aug 29, 2011 5:08pm [ 69 ]
Hi Stacey - You could be experiencing early pregnancy (and the hormones haven't reached detectable levels) or your hormones are a bit out of wack this month. If you period doesn't occur - you could retest in one week to see. Alternatively you could go and see your midwife or doctor for advice. ChrisN Sep 1, 2011 5:14pm [ 70 ]
Hi there. I am a bit confused myself. I was due for my period on 28th August (that's following 28days) and didn't get it. My periods are always 28 days or 1-4 days earlier. I am never ever late. Late last week I started to feel nausea in the car etc, light headed, tired, extremely thirsty for water (which was one of the first signs when I got pregnant with my son 11 years ago) and headaches. And I had absolutely no PMS at all which is highly unusual for me as I get lots of symptoms always. The feeling of nausea isn't quite so bad at the moment... I get a bit 'off' in the afternoon and a bit tired. However, today I have started bleeding. It seems very similar to my period, but not. I have pain also similar to period pain, but again not quite the same. Not enough to take panadol. I did 2 home tests earlier this week but they were negative. My husband and I don't take any precautions and I know we had intercourse on what would have been my most fertile day (if based on 28 day cycle). When I was very young I had an ectopic pregnancy. Is this another wait it out thing? Or am I probably not pregnant? Thanks. b b Sep 3, 2011 3:45am [ 71 ]
I am 9 weeks pregnant and had a tiny bit of browny/red discharge so far today - i got my papsmear, blood tests and and ultra sound yesterday at the doctors for my first time visit...could the bleeding maybe due to that? The thought of losing this baby scares me. I know bleeding is quite common, not sure about this though??? THANK YOU! Jane Palmer Sep 3, 2011 11:04am [ 72 ]
Yes a pap smear can cause a small amount of bleeding. If your bleeding continues contact your midwife or doctor for advise. Jane Palmer Sep 3, 2011 11:06am [ 73 ]
Hi ChrisN - it is hard to say what is going on. It would be best to talk to your midwife or doctor. Amber Sep 15, 2011 3:38am [ 74 ]
Hi there. I am 9 weeks into my second pregnancy. I gave birth to my daughter only in February this year. I am currently on holidays in Europe and have experienced medium-light bleeding for the past two days. I have indulged in the odd taste of local produce ( namely wine and cheese - and not excessive ) and also done a lot of walking. This week I have also come down with a cold. No cramping per se - but occasional uncomfortablness which I have put down to normal travel woes. I have also been taking pregnancy multivitamins every day. Can any of this be conclusive to a miscariage? At this stage should I seek medical advice in the middle of a remote little german country village? I look forward to your response. nikki Sep 19, 2011 10:17pm [ 75 ]

Hi Amber - I am sorry but I have not been able to answer questions for the last week due to excessive workload. The bleeding you described can be a sign that you may miscarry or it may pass without incident. I hope that the bleeding has settled down now for you. If it has continued see a midwife or doctor for advise.
Hi Nikki - I am so sorry you had such an awful outcome last pregnancy. From a health prospective - make sure you are eating a well balanced diet, taking vitamins and minerals (speak to your midwife, doctor or naturopath about which supplements are appropriate for you), lots of water and rest. I will cross my fingers that this pregnancy continues normally for you. I hope the scan you had on Friday was normal. ngsm Sep 28, 2011 9:03pm [ 77 ]
Hi Doc, I am 33, I think I am pregnant, my last period was on Sept 1st, and the conceived day was on Sept 17th. I started to feel the pregnantcy symptom from Sept 21th to today. I take a pregnantcy home test but was negative and did that again on Sept 28th but still negative. on Sept 28th I started bleeding, does this mean I am not pregnant? does this mean my next period is arriving? or I am loosing my pregnantcy? I talked to a doctor around my area they said I was not pregnant but just the sign of tireness! but I find this hard to except as the symptom I have was since 21th Sept and not normal as tireness. Please doctor help to reply my doudt. Jane Palmer Sep 29, 2011 10:41pm [ 78 ]
Hi ngsm - I am a midwife not a doctor. Typically pregnancy symptoms do not happen until four weeks after the first day of your last menstrual period. However women do experience pregnancy differently. If you have any further pregnancy symptoms or if your tiredness continues see your midwife or doctor. Mel Oct 4, 2011 9:29am [ 79 ]
Hi Jane, I was confirmed in very early pregnancy (about 4 weeks ish)by blood test back on the 19th Sept but started bleeding bright red blood the night of the 20th which bled relatively heavily (still bright red) for about 3 days and then tapered off to light browny/pink spotting for a couple of days. There were no clots, it was all fresh, watery red blood. I assumed it was a miscarriage as I also lost all my pregnancy symptoms - aside from the extreme tiredness. I never got tested or looked at since it was so early, I just assumed that much bleeding automatically meant early miscarriage. Do you think there is any chance I could still be pregnant given there were no clots? Or not likely? Thanks so much! Jane Palmer Oct 4, 2011 9:59pm [ 80 ]
Hi Mel - if you were still pregnant you would expect to have some pregnancy symptoms eg. sore breasts, nausea etc. While it is quite unlikely that you are still pregnant - it is still possible. If you were unsure you could do a home pregnancy test to find out. bilby Oct 9, 2011 9:48am [ 81 ]
Hi i have had a week of old blood when i wipe...Went to Drs on Thursday and she said that i had alot of old blood coming from my cervix...So Friday i went to my other Drs and he said since there was no pain all is ok but since then i have now got red bleeding still when i wipe and it seems to be getting a little worse....Still no pains and still have sore boobs and thats it but i dont get anything else...has anyone else had this happen Jane Palmer Oct 10, 2011 12:10am [ 82 ]
Hi Bilby - if your bleeding is red and continuing - contact your midwife or doctor for advise. Donna Oct 14, 2011 11:12pm [ 83 ]
I am 9 weeks pregnant and noticed today after going to the toilet that I had a bit of mucous discharge with a very light tinge of pink. I have had wind pains but no other problems. Should I be worried or is that common? I had an ultrasound around two weeks ago to date the pregnancy as I have polycystic ovarys and all was good heart was strong. Jane Palmer Oct 16, 2011 11:27pm [ 84 ]
Hi Donna - let your midwife or doctor know if you've had ongoing pink vaginal loss. It is reassuring that you've had an ultrasound and seen the baby. Melissa Oct 17, 2011 2:21pm [ 85 ]
I'm almost 4 weeks - my next period was due on the 21st - 3 days ago I had very pink light spotting then the next day it was slightly heavier but still pink, now it's bright red and heavier. Not heavy as a period but it's concerning, there's also a clear mucous. I'm so worried and scared. Can anyone please tell me if this is okay? My doctor's appointment is in 4 days but I just need some advice right now!! Jenna Griffiths Oct 20, 2011 2:21am [ 86 ]
I'm 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant, I started to bleed red blood and a few clots 2 days ago. The Dr has taken my blood, the hcg level is 30, the Dr had hoped for higher but said she cannot confirm anything until we get the results of the next blood test to see if the hormones have doubled. Please can someone reassure me that there is still hope? Jane Palmer Oct 21, 2011 10:00am [ 87 ]
Hi Melissa - I am sorry but I am away from my computer frequently seeing clients. Bleeding in early pregnancy is common and many women go onto having a normal pregnancy. If your bleeding increases contact your doctor for advise.
Hi Jenna - Hormone levels need to be done in a series - so if the results show an increase in hcg levels it will be reassuring. Unfortunately it is a waiting game. I hope that everything turns out well for you. pal Oct 25, 2011 2:11am [ 88 ]
Hi, I had unprotected sex on 9/10/2011 which was ovulation day and since then I am having all pregnancy symptoms but my home test turned negative on 22/10/2011 and I am having light bleeding from today (24/10/2011) along with all symptoms. I am really confused whether I am pregnant or not. my doc appointment is next week. if someone can help please.. Belle Oct 27, 2011 2:59pm [ 89 ]
Hi Jane, I have lost 3 pregnancies and am very in tune with my body now and pregnancy symptoms. I have the strong feeling I am pregnant. my period is due on the 31st of this month but I have had bleeding which started brown and then turned red. Not sure if this is break through bleeding or the start of an early period. I have very heavy, sore and swollen breats and very tired and feel a little sick. Which I never get before or during my period. Just concerned it could even be an ectopic pregnancy? what would be the next best step. Kat Oct 29, 2011 7:52am [ 90 ]
Hi :) my period is around 3 weeks late now but I have been on a two week course of antibiotics, however, 5 days ago I noticed light pink then brown spotting. I usually get very heavy periods that are painful so this was completely different for me (also this only lasted for 3 days instead of the usual 6)... Is it likely antibiotics could affect this and would it be too soon to take a pregnancy test? Lately I have been extremely fatigued yet unable to sleep and now I am experiencing mild nausea - any advice would be appreciated thankyou :) Jane Palmer Oct 29, 2011 9:07am [ 91 ]
Hi Pal - Sorry about the delay in responding. I imagine you've seen your doctor by now. If you think you are pregnant and a test is negative. You can repeat the test in about 7 days (sometimes it takes a while for the pregnancy hormone to be picked up in a pregnancy test).
Hi Belle - We have an article on this site about ectopic pregnancy. The main sign of ectopic pregnancy is pain. If you are concerned about your bleeding speak to your midwife or doctor.
Hi Kat - Illness can cause changes in your menstrual cycle. If you think you may be pregnant home pregnancy tests can have a positive result from when your period is due. Sara Oct 29, 2011 3:10pm [ 92 ]
I am 12 weeks pregnant and had a bleed 2 days ago, which has stopped. I sought medical advice straight away, and have a follow-up appointment and ultrasound in another 2 days. I have been advised to rest, but I have an 18 month old who obviously requires constant care. I was wondering if it was safe for me to pick him up, or should my partner stay home for a few extra days to help out until we know the outcome of the ultrasound and test results? tasha Nov 3, 2011 10:35am [ 93 ]
we have been ttc and stopped using bc pills for 6months now. i gave up using the ovulation tests. i started my period on time this month but it has been 5days now and only light bleeding and no period stuff. should i take a pregancy test or is it too soon or may it just be an off period. i thought periods shed egg and lining?? PM Nov 3, 2011 11:58pm [ 94 ]

I bled alot of clots and for only 2 days it went brown. I go into docs tomorrow my hcg level was 27 on oct 27 then on the 30 it was 82 but on the 4th it was 71.9 is that bad???? Rohanda Nov 9, 2011 2:51pm [ 99 ]
Dear jane, iam 7 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child I have had two miscarriages in the past and for the last week I have been having some brown discharge and some slight cramping so I weng to the ED on sunday and they checked to see what was going on and they told me that the cervix is closed and that my hcg levels have all gone up from 409 to 9600 which is good so they asked me to get a scan done to make sure it wasnt an etopic pregnancy I had the scan done on monday and they found the sac and the baby it has a heart beat off 120bpm which iam really happy about but I still jave been having brown discharge and cramping is this normal? Could I end up loosing the baby? Jane Palmer Nov 10, 2011 6:49am [ 100 ]
Sara - when experiencing bleeding in pregnancy it is important not to over exert yourself. Try to minimise lifting of your toddler where ever possible.
Tasha - sometimes a period can occur and isn't like a usual period or alternatively light bleeding can occur around the time a period is due when a women is pregnant (so it can be difficult to tell). If you feel it is possible you are pregnant - you can take a home pregnancy test.
PM home pregnancy tests are testing for pregnancy hormones. If you have some bleeding (as far as I know) it shouldn't effect the test.
Lea - unfortunately all you can do is wait and see how the pregnancy progresses. I hope everything turns out well for you.
Chloe - if your symptoms persist it is possible to be pregnant with some bleeding. If you still think it is possible you are pregnant test one week after the last test.
Ashlee - the pregnancy hormone they are testing for in your blood should rise. It is concerning that it is going down. Unfortunately you will have to wait to see what happens. I hope everything turns out well for you.
Rohanda - It is really reassuring that the ultrasound has detected the baby's heart beat. This is a good sign that the pregnancy will continue (though it is not a guarantee). Brown blood loss is old blood - so hopefully it will stop of its own accord. If you have bright red blood loss contact your midwife or doctor. shilpa Nov 11, 2011 7:15pm [ 101 ]
Dear Jane, i'am 25 weeks pregnant. My last ultrasound scan was during my 22 weeks of pregnancy and scan reports told everything is normal, my baby is well developing and my cervical length is 2.7 so doc advised me to be little under care. From last couple of days i'am noticing red brown spotting. I'am really worried. I have no pains in abdomen or back. Should i ignore the spotting or should i contact my doc immediately? Jane Palmer Nov 12, 2011 6:49am [ 102 ]
Hi Shilpa - yes please contact your doctor or hospital right now. Bleeding in the second trimester needs to be investigated (even without pain). Nichell Nov 16, 2011 2:05am [ 103 ]
I have heavy red bleeding and an hcg of 19 two days ago i am approx. 5 weeks pregnant. I have not passed any clots or tissue. Today the bleeding has been extremely less. I only had it when i wiped. i could wear a pad all day and night and only have a little blood. Can this be inplantation bleeding and do you think i still have my baby? I have had two pregnancies that resulted in two healthy babies. Linda Nov 16, 2011 11:05pm [ 104 ]
Hello, I'm not sure if i am pregnant or not. I don't get my periods at all as i have found out that i have poc, which means it's hard to know when i am ovulating extra, although with knowing this i have had 1 child 3 years ago, i did start taking depo after i had my child then i stopped as every time i went to the doctors i forgot about it. I have been having casual sex since my daughter sometimes he pulls out on time and just reasently I don't know what you call it it's not a period just a little bleed for just 1 day and only once, i took a pregancy test 2 days later and it come back as a negative result i haven't made a appointment yet to see my doctor i just wanted to find out if i could be pregnant or is it something else Natalie Nov 17, 2011 5:25am [ 105 ]
Hi, i had a lot of bleedin around the 5 week mark i had a scan and baby looked ok. Bleedin turned to bright red and its settled now.

Hi, I had a misscarige in may and now I'm 2-3 weeks pregnant, on Thursday night I had started bleeding it was just enough to see when I whipped, it keeps going away ana coming back, today I woke up and it was gone , is this normal ? Jane Palmer Nov 20, 2011 2:47pm [ 108 ]
Hi Nichell - it is reassuring that your bleeding has stopped. However at 5 weeks you may not see any tissue passed. You will need to see your midwife or doctor for advise.
Hi Linda - if you think you are pregnant. You can do another pregnancy test 5 to 7 days after the last test. Alternatively you can see an midwife or doctor.
Hi Natalie - If the bleeding you are experiencing is brown it suggests the blood is old (as opposed to fresh bleeding which is much more of a concern). Sometimes it takes a little while for the brown discharge to stop. If the bleeding turns red or is associated with cramping contact your midwife or doctor.
Hi Joe - the bleeding you experienced could be what is known as "implantation bleeding". If you have any further loss contact your midwife or doctor for advise. Lisa Nov 20, 2011 3:49pm [ 109 ]
Hi, I took a hpt yesterday that had a faint line the same day i started bleeding its not heavy or light its just in between with a tiny bit of long stringy blood i wouldnt say a clot I have no pain but my breast are no longer sore and i feel bloated or swollen on my stomach, I have had 2 misscarriages years ago and remember being in alot of pain so im confused as to what this could b... Jane Palmer Nov 21, 2011 6:37am [ 110 ]
Hi Lisa - The bleeding could be implantation bleeding (which is common and will stop quickly) or a sign that the pregnancy will not continue. Unfortunately you will just have to wait and see what happens. I hope everything continues normally for you. Khisa Nov 22, 2011 4:58pm [ 111 ]
Hi Jane, My wife is seven weeks plus few days pregnant. She started experiencing blood discharge after like four weeks. We went to the Doc and was prescribed of oral drugs. This stopped the blood stuff but the discharge- yellowish substance on her pads- which continued the whole period she has been taking the drugs. It was until recently that she experienced a dark-brownish discharge. We are so scared of this new development. She is visiting the Gaenocologist today, but please help us understand what is happening. Are drugs the cause ? We avoided sex after this new discharge coming which is some 24 hours now! Please advise. Thanks Khisa Jane Palmer Nov 23, 2011 6:45am [ 112 ]
Hi Khisa - Bleeding can occur in early pregnancy. Sometimes a cause is found, other times a cause isn't found. Hopefully the doctors visit today will help you get some answers. Navywife Dec 8, 2011 9:47pm [ 113 ]

Hi, I may be 10 weeks pregnant and wondering if bleeding brownish blood around the time of periods would happen, is normal?
My last bleeding was 2 days earlier than expected and lasted 2 days only with red blood and it felt like it flowed out quickly. Had no cramps or clots. This time again it is brownish and have mild cramps and 3 days late, with sharp back pains and no clots.
I have experienced pregnancy symptoms for the last ten to twelve weeks such as fatigue, herrmoids, headaches, Nausea and sore breasts and did not realise they were symptoms until now.
My mother did not find out that she was pregnant with me until she was 12 weeks because of what she thought were Periods. I have not tested because bleeding started and I am waiting till it finishes to test.

Hello, My period was expected december 7 and I had unprotected sex the week prior. My period never came and it's 2 weeks late now. I took multiple preg tests and all were negative. Yesterday there was one bright red blood spot with mucus and then it was gone again and it was very minimal. What do you think is happening and should I be concerned? I have a higher stress work environment but I've never been this late before with stress. Anca Dec 21, 2011 8:28pm [ 122 ]
Hi I found out I was prego on dec1st took a home pregency test and sure enough it confirmed it , went to my obgyn on the 6th he took my blood work and sure enough th next day it was confirmed we are preganat . Shortly a few days later my husband I had intercourse and just one tiny pinkish blood spot was on our bed sheets . All day I felt fine just a little nausea but come night time and I would get server back pain and cramps , felt like my period . Finally on Dec 17 th we had intercourse and saw a ill pinkish blood again but this time it had a really bad smell to it , I kinda freaked out and so did he but it was just a little spot but it smelled really awful. Next morning I woke up and felt blood in between my legs ran to the bathroom gushes of blood and 2 huge blood clogs came out . I freaked out we rushed to the ER . Where they did th escape and pap and ultra sound , sure enough he did my cervix is still closed the baby is still inside me but they could not detect a heart beat . /they informed me I will be having a miscarriage in the next few days. That night we came home no more signs of blood no spotting nothing I just had major cramps and back pain finally fall asleep . The next morning I woke up to blood once again an entire toilet of red blood and lots of blood clogs but no fetus no sac nothing . They bleeding just gushed out of me and then nothing all day just a little spot here and there on my pad . Tuesday's morning which is today. I woke up fearing seeing blood once again and I didn't have a drop of blood nothing cramping and back pain once again . I have an apt with my obgyn on thur. And I'm concerned don't know what to think the baby hasn't passed and I read a lot on vagi ultra sounds sometime s can not detect the heart beat for the first 10 to 12 weeks . But with the bleeding cramps and back ache I am hopefully but haven't lost my faith that things might turn around. Please let me know if anyone has Beverly expericed what I have been going through . My hubby and I have been trying for a yr and we were so happy to find out the great news only to have to wonder when will the bby pass if I have bleed so much ... Jennifer Dec 22, 2011 3:54am [ 123 ]
Hi jane. I am about 4 weeks pregnant. For the past three days I have been having light bleeding. The first day was just pinkish and only when I wiped but the last two days (including today) it has been heavier. Not as heavy as my period but it's a little scary. It's not enough to change a panty liner but it's a bit red just looks watered down. My doctor said not to worry or let myself get stressed out. she told me to drink water and take it easy and call her if it gets heavier. but I'm still a bit nervous. Reading online if it's red it could be a threatened miscarriage . Claire Dec 22, 2011 8:24pm [ 124 ]
I am 7w2d by u/s dating, according to LMP I'm a week ahead of where u/s put me, but the tech told me to go by u/s dating.
Anyway I'm here because this afternoon I've had brown discharge for the first time ever during a preg. This is my second preg -the first was a mmc at 8w2d, so Im very nervous this time round. I had a very active, stressful day at work, lifting heavy items and on my feet all day. I also am exposed t anaesthetic gases at work and we had a accidental leak in our set up today. I'm hoping I just over did it physically today and bub will be ok, but I'm looking for advice Jenny Dec 27, 2011 9:04pm [ 125 ]
Hi Jane, I'm TTC for 3 yrs and my period has been late for 5 days. I have most pregnancy symptom, such as sore breast, nauseau, diarrhae or sometimes constipated, On the day I should have my period, I had light brownish discharge, very few, for 2 days. The 3rd day it was clear. On 4th day (yesterday) I had few light brownish discharge again, until today I have slighly darker brown discharge followed by heavy stomach cramp. On afternoon when I went to toilet, I passed blood clot in size approx. 5cm diameter (sorry if tmi) This morning I tested with hpt and it was negative and I never experienced period cramp before nor spotting before period. Am I having m/c ? I will visit my doctor tomorrow, but can't stop worrying. Thank you. Claire Dec 29, 2011 4:33am [ 126 ]
Hi I am 7w3d pregnant. I started spotting (bright red) 8 days ago and they gave me an early scan 5 days ago. The baby was there and it's heart was seen to be beating but they said I was 6w5d pregnant (I thought by the dates I was a week on from that and I know when I ovulated so I think I was accurate). Anyway I have been spotting (sometimes light bleeding) most mornings since. It is always red. I have slight cramps and lower pack pain - nothing too painful. I am worried that as the baby measured smeller than I expected that that would be a bad sign. This is my 4th pregnancy (I had and IVF for 1st, m/c 2nd natural, and had a successful 3rd natural pregnancy. This one is also a natural pregnancy. I had a small bleed with my 3rd pregnancy but just for 1 day. I am still being sick about 7-8 times a day so I am hoping that's a good sign but also know that the hormone can remain for a while after m/c. Any thoughts or advice would be really appreciated - I can't help but suspect the worst but keep praying that as a full on bleed isn't happening yet that I might be really lucky. I am prepared for bad news so if it sounds bad please tell me! ST Jan 5, 2012 11:02pm [ 127 ]
Hi Jane, Last week I experienced very light spotting for about 3 days (all gone now!). We went to the hospital where they performed an ultrasound. I thought I was 6w+5 however the yolk sac was measuring 5w+4 (no heart beat found, too small but sac looked a good shape?). On Saturday HCG was 5776 and yesterday (Wed) was measuring 7304. Normal or not looking good? Katherine Jan 8, 2012 5:22pm [ 128 ]
Hi Jane Im just seeking a little bit of advise! I ovulated 9 days ago, we had intercourse on day 1 2 of ovulation then again on day 5, the following morning i woke up to brown spotting, by the next day it was red and has been like that for 2 days its not heavy but definitely there there has been no clotting just clean bright red blood, i would normally be due for my period around the 17th I usually have a very regular 28 day cycle! Is this to much for implantation bleeding and have i just had a very early miscarriage? Or do I stop stressing and wait and see what happens when my period would normally be due, Sorry just a little confused as I have 2 little girls with 2 very simple pregnancies.... feeling a bit like i'v never done this before. Thanks Katherine Jan 9, 2012 6:51pm [ 129 ]
Hi Jane! I'm not sure if you can help me or not but Im just after a little bit of information or advise! I started my last period on the 18th Dec, I would have ovulated around the 31st of december through to about the 3rd of this month! My husband and I had sex on the 31st 1st then 5 days later on friday 6th I started bleeding buy the saturday it was quite bright red and I'm still bleeding today on the 9th, its not very heavy but definitely there, and there hasn't been any clots. My period has always been a regular 28 day cycle and when I do usually get my period its normally really really heavy for 2 days and then gone, so im just a little unsure what this may be, would you have any ideas? michelle Jan 10, 2012 2:23pm [ 130 ]
hi Jane, I am supposed to be 10 weeks pregnant and I already had that implantation bleeding a while ago and it lasted one day. but now I had intercourse with my husband 3 days ago then after that I had some black/dark brown spotting wiped with tissue than last night it became more red than today but not real heavy flow about medium flow and wear a pad with little bit of clotting sometimes but I also have mild cramping off and of throughout the day. I have been resting and off my feet more than usual and trying to drink more water. Is this normal? should I be concerned? I have been pregnant before and this has never happened to me in a pregnancy. please let me know. Thank you. danielle Jan 12, 2012 2:42am [ 131 ]

Hi, I think I am about 6 and 1/2 weeks prego with my 4th child. I am not sure how prego I am my periods are a little off. i believe my period stared the first few days of dec 2011. I am also around a day 18 ovulator. I have always spoted with each preg. my first 2 were natural del and were only 4 hours start to finish. I had one misscarage and then got prego with my 3rd child 2 months later bled again and had sever lower back ache the whole time. had to be induced i hemoraged durring delivery and then smelled like a balloon and had high blood pressure a few days later. went back to dr with shortness of breath he said I was hyperventolating. i said i don't think so and went to the er. Had a pulminary embolism. say blood dr said no coditions and could have another child. my youngest is now 5 and we are prego again. had an ultrasound since durring a pelvic me cervix let out a little blood when poked. new nurse freeked out and ordered a u/s stat. Now I am freeking out. I had an old kind dr.for the u/s he is retiring in a few monthes. He didn't even know how to turn on the machine had to ask nurse. he said i should be 7 weeks prego. I don't think so i always ovuate late. once he got the machine on he said everything looked ok. he wanted to see a reason for the bleeding and was dis he could not. said looked like a very early preg. He also said he could not see a heart beat.dr never measured baby. last time there was no heart beat i miscarried. this time I have lots of discarcharge. a little with pink only bled a week before period. back hurts at night and have had sharp panes at the begining. those are now gone. now i just feel bloated and a little uncomfort not cramp. I have a lot of gas.sorry and when i relieve that the uncomfort is gone. the ultrasound was on Jan19 today is jan 21 and had red blood on toilet paper after a bowl movment. No cramping and went away and now only had slight red in discharge like before. I am bleeding the least with this baby. my husband is convinced this is another miscarge. what do you think!! Susan Jan 23, 2012 3:13am [ 133 ]
Ms. Jane. I am in between my 7th to 8th week of pregnancy. I had IVF but I have been having problems. I have been having brown spotting the majority of which is in the morning (it looks as if it has pooled overnight) for the past 3 weeks. I have had several ultrasounds (first doctor said there was no baby (5wks external u/s), second one said there was a baby but no h/b (5wks 2 days transvaginal u/s), third said that there was no h/b but found one the previous time (husband argued.. really no point)(6 wks transvaginal u/s). I then decided to have 3 HCG tests (on my own) and have seen that the numbers have consecutively dropped (24000, 17000, 12000 (last being yesterday). I do not have any cramping though my symptoms have abated a bit (breasts swollen and sore one day and then not so much the next and then back again, not using the restroom as much).I cannot find any information that is in keeping with what is going on in my body. If this IS a miscarriage when will I have it.. do the numbers need to drop to a certain point? Is it possible that I will not miscarry naturally? Is it possible that I still have a viable pregnancy? As I am in what is considered a third world country I don't have much faith their medical system. Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Melissa Jan 27, 2012 1:13pm [ 134 ]
Hello Jane. I am 12 weeks pregnant and earlier this week I suddenly had small gushes of blood that seemed to be fluid-like (My husband and I had intercourse a day earlier.) I immediately panicked and went straight into the doctor where he did an ultrasound and found everything to be perfectly normal (strong heart beat, movement and perfect size for gestational age.) Afterwards the bleeding stopped but since then it's come back every now and then and I feel very sore in my cervix area. I don't have any cramping at all, just general soreness inside. Could I have an infection or could this mean trouble for my pregnancy later on? Any advice would help! Thank you! HannahMTC Jan 28, 2012 10:42pm [ 135 ]

Ashley Sep 3, 2012 5:15pm [ 147 ]
Hi, I am currently about 5-6wks along. I just recently had a miscarriage the end of June and found out I was pregnant in August without ever getting my period in between. I went to the ER a couple days ago for light bleeding and was told by the doc that i was either having another m/c or it was an eptopic because my HCG had went from 4400 to 5900 in 5 days. The u/s showed a sack in my uterus but that was all. The bleeding stopped the same day but when I wipe there is very tiny fragments of what i think might be tissue or old blood. Im not really sure. Its a holiday weekend so I wont be able to see my doc till at least tue or wed. I was just wondering if because my levels didnt double or becuase of this tissue stuff if that means a m/c is more than likely. I am trying to not stress but its hard. Just wondering if anyone has had anything like this happen and still had a viable pregnancy. Thank you all for your time. Kerri honey Sep 19, 2012 8:08am [ 148 ]
Hi I am almost six weeks pregnant and for the past 24hrs having been bleeding it starting light and now seems like my normal period but I have no pain at all I have to go back to the doctors today to check my levels could I be losing this much wanted baby?? NeerjaDhall Oct 15, 2012 9:11pm [ 149 ]
I am 8weeks pregnant as per the lmp and 7 weeks as per us. I have had two miscarriages before where i miscarried before 8th week after heavy bleeding. I have been having v v slight erratic spotting brown in colour since the begining. It doesnt even show on my panty only as a slight brownish tinge when i wipe and that too once in a week. Yesterday when i had spotting i went to get an ultrasound done and doctor told me that baby is fine and has a heart rate of 136 bpm and there is no internal bleeding or collection of blood and most likely this is old blodd. But because of my past history iam still worried. I feel most of my symptoms are there but have started tapering off now. Please tell me if you think there is any reason to worry. Thanks Aleesha Oct 17, 2012 12:11am [ 150 ]
so the past month or so me and my partner have been having unprotected sex. i have graves disease, and i've not yet had kids. for over a week i've had some brownish disharge and then sometimes its more red and there's more of it. I've had diarrhea for the past 4 days, i keep farting, burping, i've had heart burn. i haven't thrown up, but i've felt bloated and have had slight cramping. I usually have clear skin but i've started breaking out in pimples. i've been urinating frequently, and have been quite tired. I've also had tender breasts. But I Took a home pregnancy test today and it came back negative, could i still be pregnant ? Danielle Oct 21, 2012 3:35am [ 151 ]
Hi I would like to know what you opinion is of my symptoms. If I am pregnant I would only be 2-3 week ... It started as some like pink spotting no pain or cramps in abdamon, sore breasts darker nipples, more tired then usual and eating a lot more also more frequent urination, it has turned into light red spotting and cramping over my stomach (like someone is in there and is pushing it out, trying to stretch it) I have slight pain on my right side one time that lasted about 3 min but haven't had it again, I did three tests all negative ?
Hi, i was wondering what could be the reason if i have had an ultrasound at 6weeks with a strong heartbeat and then had one spot of blood at 11weeks and had an ultrasound the next day and the baby was moving and somersaulting and had a strong heart beat again. Today im 12.1 weeks along and i have had a little bit of brown discharge. I have my NT scan booked and its only 3 days away but im still worried something has happened. Should i be concerned?

I'm 8 weeks pregnant yesterday after playing volleyball I started bleeding at around 2pm and throughout the night. this morning when I used the restroom, I noticed brown discharge and brown clots. I've in bed since then. Chandi Nov 21, 2012 5:24am [ 154 ]
So I am 6 weeks along and have had brown discharge for two weeks. I was told if its brown not to worry. Yesterday it was bright red ( only when I wipe) no previous intercourse and no cramping. I went to emerg ( even though I have an appt today) and the dr had the results of my us from last week. She said the ultrasound showed I was 5w2d and couldn't find a heartbeat. They took blood and said they would take it again on wednesday and that I was probably miscarrying. I was told to come back if the bleeding got heavy. Well, the bleeding doesn't require a pad, is only when I wipe, but is bright red. Still no cramps. Am I miscarrying? Mandy S Nov 28, 2012 7:22am [ 155 ]
I have just weaned off Warfarin and have noticed brown discharge about the time AF was due. It later turned pinkish in colour. I do not have typical pms symptoms and no cramps at all. My stomach has been growling (loudly) quite a bit! I checked everything "down there" and noticed my cervix feeling quite soft and open. I also feel a bit nauseas and when I put my hand on my bloated tummy, I can feel my pulse. Weird??? We have been ttc now for 4 months - could this be my month? Holly Dec 14, 2012 6:25am [ 156 ]
Hey there, Okay so as most I'm very worried! I last had my period on the 27 nov, I then had unprotected sex right up until the 9th of December, then on the morning of the 9th I was bleeding after sex. The day before I felt bloated, when I went to the toilet after gaving sexiness noticed that the blood was looked like watery? (And not urine) then it stayed a light period for almost 5 days it was very light I could put a pad on leave it got a day and there might have been a table spoon? My blood has then turned into brown discharge like blood then stopped but the bloating is still there and a sore back as well. I know that on the 9th that's when I would have been ovulating so I'm not due for my period until another week… preg test says no, I say it's to early and my hcg hasn't dropped yet.
Hi, I had a pregnancy test yesterday and got a result as weekly positive. Later today morning i got my periods, but I culd experience a heavy lower backache with abnormal constipution which i never experienced before. Please help me whether its a normal period cycle or indicating any other issue.
Hello. I'm hoping you can help. My LMP was Nov 23. I have normal 28 day cycles, and sometimes sooner. I am 20 days late for my cycle, however, I got this sharp pain in my left side then have had bright red blood. I'm very concerned, because I'm unsure if I could be pregnant or not. I have take 3 HPT and 2/3 of them came out negative and one did not work properly. The last one was taken over a week ago. I did discuss this with my doctor yesterday, as I had another appointment for something else, and he felt it was unnecessary to perform a blood test. I'm just really confused. Thank you for your help. Joanne Jan 23, 2013 10:46am [ 159 ]
Hi. I'm really confused. My last period was on the 23.12.12. Then on the 13.1.13 I had a feeling I might of been pregnant so I done a test it come back negative.

I hope you can help me. I am 36 weeks pregnant and I experienced some light bloody discharge lasting 3 days. It was also accompanied by a night of contractions between 9pm-6am and then the contractions suddenly stopped.
I am surprised that my bleeding has stopped. Does this mean my bloody discharge wasn't a show? My membranes haven't ruptured and I haven't had further bad contractions. I am GBS - rahul Feb 26, 2013 7:33pm [ 162 ]

Hi, Me and my husband used condoms during sex but from last two months we are not using condoms as we are trying to conceive and after that I have my periods irregular . I normally have my periods on 29th of the month but last month it came up on 24th(not normal flow as less bleeding,and thick brownish,lasts for 6 days), thought of periods only but this month it came up on 14th only with the same less bleeding and thick browish. Please suggest. Laura Mar 26, 2013 6:31am [ 166 ]

Hello. I woke up this morning with bright red vginal bleeding. I noticed when I wiped after my morning pee. My period isn't due for another week so I figured it came early and inserted a tampon. About 3 hours later I go to change my tampon and there isn't much blood. I don't insert a new one and I've been checking periodically and no more blood at all. I've had no cramping or any other period symptoms. I'm concerned, should I go to my gyno right away? I've had previous abnormal paps could the bleeding be related to that or could I be pregnant?

Hi i am in first 45 days of my pregnancy. Is it good to have sex with my partner. Looking for your reply Mermaid mom May 28, 2013 2:05am [ 172 ]
Hi, I am 10 dpo and had sex using the pull out method during my most fertile time of my 30 day cycle. I started feeling pregnancy symptoms within a week. I then got a browny pink discharge 5 days before my period was due which then turned into mild to medium bleeding. yesterday the bleeding was associated with cramps and back pressure and some match stick head size clots here and there... the cramps stopped and the bleeding is alot less and tapering off. during the time i was bleeding and cramping, my boobs continued to get fuller and my aereolas are very large with the montgomery bumps on them.. I also have increased saliva and still some much less mild pressure in low abdomen with some mild pokey twinges... my qustion... the liklihood of being pregnant after all the bleeding, and cramps, and would my boobs still get bigger and would i still have the pokey pressure and lots of peeing if it was an early miscarriage yesterday? I am due for period tomorrow. peta-lele Jun 1, 2013 9:49pm [ 173 ]

Hi, I have a two year old and my pregnancy was very good no bleeding and had a healthy boy. Since then have had two miscarriages which both started with light brown discharge then heavy bleeding.. I am now 7-8 weeks pregnant again and have had an ultrasound and they found a heart beat. But yesterday I had light brown discharge when I wiped after going to the toilet. I only went to the doctor yesterday and worried if I should go back or not. The waiting is killing me and trying to stay positive. I'm worried it's happening again.

Hi, I found out I was pregnant when I went to the hospital for abnormal bleeding. Doctor told me I was pregnant and probably miscarrying. I've been bleeding 6 days filling a pad a day which for me is light as I have really heavy periods. But I am still having pregnancy symptoms. My breasts are swollen and sore I've been dizzy and nauseous. I'm wondering if I could still be pregnant or if I'm setting myself up to be disappointed? Mary Jul 23, 2013 4:12am [ 193 ]
Hi I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant 1 week ago. I woke up yesterday, stood up out of bed and a gush of bright red blood came. I wore a pad and continued to have very light bleeding, no cramps for the rest of the day. I went to A E to check everything was ok and have a scan tomorrow at the EPU. I praying everything will be ok. I really do feel for women going through this scary and unsettling time. jamey Jul 31, 2013 2:38am [ 195 ]
Hi.im 5weeks .I was on the trenessa birthcontrol pill and I had sex around the time I was most fertile.I bleed after ovulation. Then a week. After j een bleeding brown for 9 days I missed my period..what's going on? Tonya Jul 31, 2013 2:06pm [ 196 ]
My last period was on June 27th. My husband and I had unprotected sex the full week of July 8th - July 13th (each day) as I was expected to be ovulating/most fertile. My period was supposed to come on July 25th which I missed. I am always on time with my menstrual (28 day cycle). I took a pregnancy test at 9 PM on July 26th but was BFN. On July 28th mid afternoon, I noticed when I weent to the bathroom and wiped there was a slight streak of light pinkish/reddish blood. My husband had sex that same day. After that, I realized when I went to the bathroom, the blood was more like bright red but wasn't like my regular menstrual cycle. July 29th, the blood flow as still a bright red but was flowing more than the previous day passed some very small clots. July 30th, the blood flow was minimal compared to yesterday and haven't passed any clots at all. Do you think having sex that day is causing the blood flow as such? Do you think these are signs of a miscarriage? I already scheduled an appt. with the GYN for this Friday. panda24 Aug 11, 2013 8:22pm [ 197 ]
Hi there ive found out that I am 5.4weeks pregnant. On friday, 2days ago I had a little pink orange discharge that was slowly turning more red. I went to the doctor as I was very concerned due to having two miscarriage in the last 9 months, both lost around this time in the pregnancy. The bleed has continued but has lessoned. Still a pink red in colour. I have had no pains and my breasts/nipples are still very sore. I have a scan on wed but am stressing and finding it difficult to wait. Is there any hope. Thanks Loveih Aug 18, 2013 2:32pm [ 198 ]
Hi Im 14 weeks pregnant suppos to be. And i visitd my gp, because iam concern about my brownish discharge, and the doctor said everything is okay, and she check my urine, its clear everything is normal, then she ask me and my partner if we want to do the downsyndrome scan. And i agree just for the sake of listining of my babys heartbeat. So went for scan last friday after the bloodtest. The physician said that the baby size is like an 8weeks and 2day. And no heartbeat. I dont understand why it happen like that. I didnt feel any pains before, everytime i went for check up. Everything about me are fines , normal. I was stress the past couple of weeks, and didnt feel any hungry, unlike my first month of pregnancy i always feel hungry every 2hours. Anyway we went to the hospital straight away, and they check my bloodtest, and urine. Still the same my urine is clear no sign of infection.but the nurseand the doctor said how i like to remove the baby. If i want it in nature way just let it go, or take medicine or surgical operation, i forgot what they call it. So anyway i said i want it clean inside. We went back home, and the red spots start to come out, until now, its getting sticky and sticky red blood. What will i do. Will i go back to hospital and let them know about this? And my question is why my baby size is like 8weeks, is that mean my baby is dead inside on that 8th weeks of my pregnancy and didnt grow anymore? What is the best way to get rid of the dead fetus inside, nature way or just the surgical way? Coz i want to get pregnant again . Im 28yrs old, and this fetus inside suppos to be my first baby. Now its my first angel :( Blessed Aug 19, 2013 3:05pm [ 199 ]

Can someone tell me where to find help to know what's going on with my body that it is not strong enough to carry a baby to term? Thanks in advance. Jo Aug 23, 2013 3:27am [ 200 ]
Don't know what to do, I'm playing a waiting game and its driving me insane. I'm 5 weeks pregnant and have started having light pink discharge when I wipe only. My breast are no longer sore and have had light cramping but this seems to have stopped. I have been to see my GP and she said that I was probably miscarrying and too early to send for a scan so to go home and let nature take its course. I'm unsure what to do and if this is me miscarrying. Can anyone help? Megan Jenkins Aug 26, 2013 6:36pm [ 201 ]
I done a home pregnancy test about 5 days ago, I estimate myself to be around 5 weeks pregnant, on Friday night my husband and I engaged in kind of rougher sex than usual and on Saturday I had old blood spotting which went within the hour, however the next day I had some very light pinkish discharge, then today it is kind of really really dark red? There's not a lot though, maybe about 2 table spoon worth the whole weekend until now, I still have slight spotting of this deep red streaky spotting. only enough to lightly streak a pad which I haven't had to change at all. I have had 4 miscarriages in the past, and this will be my 9th pregnancy, I have 4 children, I had 2 and then suffered 4 miscarriages until I had my now 2yo, and then I went on to have another healthy though 36 week baby 15 months later after my water broke at 33 weeks and was induced at 36 weeks. I also have a slight prolapse, where my cervix instead of being 4-5 inches up is only about 1 1/2 inches away from the opening. I have to admit I am a little scared as we were really excited to be having our 5th child, I haven't had any pain either with the bleeding. I went for a blood test today to confirm pregnancy and see the Dr again for results on Wednesday where I will also be telling him about my loss obviously. This if it is a miscarriage is unlike any of my others.
Can you help? I had a m/c 10days ago.. I was 5weeks pregnant. I went through the pain and bleeding for about 4/5 days. On the 5th day me and my partner had unprotected sex. And now 5 days later I feel sick and having cramps and very white creamy discharge that is constantly making me feel like I want to go toilet ( no pain when passing urine, or smell! ) could I be pregnant this soon after a m/c?? And I have read that if I took a hpt that it will probably come back positive because its so soon after. What do I do??? Alina Ramola Sep 3, 2013 9:11pm [ 203 ]
Hi I am 6-7 weeks pregnant, and this is my first pregnancy.

She told me take rest and an ultrasound next week.I am really worried.

I was supposed to be 7-8 weeks pregnant when I miscarried naturally. My hcg levels were taken, at first it increased slowly,then started to decrease very slowly. So I had to give my blood every week to monitor my hcg level. I bled for about 3 weeks and after my bleeding stopped we started to try for another baby. Now after 2 weeks since my miscarriage bleeding has stopped, I got dark red discharge once and then when I wiped I got brown discharge... I thought I was getting period, but there was no blood after that. I'm quite confused now. Should I go and see a doctor ? And also I had two miscarriages before my son. And I got pregnant with my son right after my second miscarriage. Zara Nov 28, 2013 6:09am [ 218 ]
Hi, So I am 5 weeks 4 days pregnant through IVF Frozen transfer. My HCG levels at 5 weeks were 8000 and progestrone was at 15. I am also taking vaginal supositories 3 times a day. My doctors think my numbers look great, and we were able to even see a gestational sac at 5 week 4 days.
However, just after the ultrasound(vaginal)yesterday, I noticed some light spotting(red) for about 30min and then had some brown spotting- again very scanty. No cramping or pain. It has stopped now and I haven't had any spotting since the last 18hours. I called my doctor and he mentioned that this is normal and it could be because of the irritation caused by the US device.
I don't have an utrasound until next week. Should I concerned? I am really stressing out so much, because I really want this baby so bad. carmen gonzales Nov 28, 2013 7:21am [ 219 ]
Hi I did a few home pregnancy tests which came out positive, a clear blue test showed I was 1-2 weeks pregnant. 3 days after finding this out I had red blood on wiping I then put a pad on n just a tea spoon of red blood was on there maybe less, however it feels like a period n I have slight cramping just like a period. Im not bleeding heavy on my pads but all the water is red when I pee an there is alot of blood only when I wipe. Sorry for too much detail I am very scared as I am happy to be a mum. I went to the hospital who have taken blood n need to take more in 48hrs to check if my hormone levels have decreased. .... please tell me if this sounds like an early miscarriage. Ps I also have a urine infection could that be the cause of cramps n bleeding???? Please help Angela Nov 30, 2013 12:57am [ 220 ]
I had a feeling I was pregnant. I was just hoping my period didn't come. I was getting negative tests but I heard that happens. My period was a week late so I started to get my hopes up. But now when I'm on the toliet blood comes out, a couple clots came out. But the blood is dark like its old. But the blood only happens on the toliet. I had a pad on but nothing. This has only been happening for a day. I'm just scared that I really was pregnant and I'm losing the baby. But it could also be normal right? Or the blood clots mean a miscarriage? rebekah Dec 5, 2013 9:01am [ 221 ]

Hi. I missed my period last month and this month I was late too. when I woke up one morning I noticed that there were some large blood clots but I haven't had any cramping I also was advised to keep taking my birth control because before I was put on it I was never regular. I've also taken two test last month and they both came back negative. should I be worried that this is a miscarriage? I've never been late with my period while I was on my birth control.

I am 6wks pregnant. I had a miscarriage in July and I am just now today for the first time seeing a darker yellow discharge. Only saw it on my underwire none when I wipe, no pain aside from normal growing pains. Should I be worried? I'm super paranoid because of last time. I've already had on successful pregnancy when I had my last miscarriage I did have clamidia (sp) my ex boyfriend got it from his new gf and passed it along. And the doctor said that was most likely the cause, their were no infections found during my d c. So I just need to know if I should make a trip to the er or honestly just chill and relax?!

Hi. I am very confused right now, on my first day of my period, I only had a spotting, then on the 2nd day and 3rd day, it went just like my normal flow. Usually on the 4th day, it will just turn to spotting and then stop, but this time, I had blood clots until this day, my 5th day which is unusual for me. Is it something to be bothered of? My LMP before this month was 02/27 and had my first day this month, March 29. A week before my period came, I felt being sick, there's vomiting and craving for foods. TIA! hoping for an answer..

Hello I'm 32 days late on my period and I've taken home pregnancy test and they where negative I went to the doctors they did both blood and pee test the pee was negative but I haven't got a call about the blood work Today I'm spotting is the normal?? Steven May 16, 2014 9:20pm [ 254 ]
Hey, I'm 17 and unsure whether or not that I'm pregnant or not. 13th April me and my boyfriend had sex but used protection. As far as we know the condom never split. A week before sex I had come on my period and by the time we had sex I was off. I was 6 weeks late on my period after the sex and was getting sickness, cramps, headaches and I just wanted to sleep. I took 5 tests 3 were slightly positive and 2 were negative. I then had a kind of watery period at 6 weeks, I told my boyfriend and we were both unsure of whether I was pregnant or not. Also what this watery period was, I did some research and I've found that I could have had a miscarriage. I am now late for my next period 4 days late which isn't as bad as 6 weeks. But if counting from the day of conception I would have been 9 weeks pregnant I'm now getting very sore nipples and the sickness is coming back. Anyone got any help? Jessica Jun 15, 2014 3:57am [ 255 ]
Hey, I'm 19 years of age and not very sure if I am pregnant or not at this point. I did have unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago, and exactly a week before my period was due I had dark brown spotting and discharge that lasted almost 2 full days. I did a blood test before my missed period because I was feeling really sick, my nipples hurt, was more tired then normal, my lower back was hurting, and I have never spotted in-between periods let alone a dark brown colour, the test came back negative. I am still feeling all those symptoms and my period did come onetime I started bleeding wednesday morning but it wasn't has heavy as normal and I am usually really regular. Then thursday, friday I was pretty much only really spotting and totally stopped friday night to saturday afternoon then started lightly spotting brown again when I wipe. At this point I have no idea whats going on this never happens to me! hope you can help! thanks :) tessie Jun 15, 2014 7:40pm [ 256 ]

Hi Jane I've been experiencing some bleeding went to the er they did blood test, urine, pelvic exam, and a transvaginal ultrasound which showed I'm about 5weeks 5days. I only bleed when I urinate and when I wipe but nothing I. The pad. I went back to the doctor and the doctor did some blood work and my levels went from 1400 to 1200, is there any possible way that they could double again? Any advice on how to try to prevent a miscarriage? Amanda Aug 3, 2014 8:40pm [ 261 ]
I was on birth control for 13 years and just recently stopped taking it in December 2013. My period has been irregular (every other month), but regular in the sense that it comes the same time every other month. I took a pregnancy test last week and it was negative. I began spotting the following week (brownish/pinkish discharge - I know that is old blood). Then the spotting would stop for a day. The next day I would notice it again and it might be clear discharge with blood stains. This past Saturday (yesterday) I took another pregnancy test and it came out positive, (the pregnancy indicator line was rather light) but I´m still spotting. When I woke up this morning, the spotting is a bit more red, but there is no flow like my period. I´m very concerned as this is my first pregnancy. I know I need to go to the doctor, but today is Sunday and it´s August in Spain - hardly anyone works - so it may be difficult to get an appointment right away. Any help, suggestions or advice would be very welcoming. Thanks! Allyson Aug 14, 2014 1:24am [ 262 ]

Hello my name is Denise. I'm 5 weeks 5 days pregnant. Earlier today I woke up and had a gush of red blood. I have been brown spotting on and off for 2 days.

About six weeks ago my partner came inside me. A few weeks later I had what I thought was my period but now I'm not sure... Implantation maybe ?.. I should have had my period on the 26 this month. I've had cramps. Tenderness and now two days later I have bright red blood that's fairly light unless I go pee and have to wait while the stringy blood stops.. From around 7 last night to 5 this morning it involved a lot of cramping. The cramping came and went and has been gone for about an hour. Is this a miscarriage, a weird period or am I pregnant?? Two home tests were both negative.. Ashley Kim Sep 6, 2014 6:06am [ 266 ]
Hi. I am 7 days late and haven't tested yet. Normally I am only ever 2-3 days late. I haven't had any cramping at all and I have been feeling tierd more and nauseous. If I am pregnant I am 5 weeks and 3 days. Today I went to the bathroom and there was a little but of light red blood. What should I do? And what does it mean? Tiffany Sep 10, 2014 3:01pm [ 267 ]
I started bleeding on Aug 17th at 6w4d. Spotting actually. I went to the ER three days later, and the baby was fine. I was then put on bed rest, and diagnosed with a threatened miscarriage. I bled on and off every other day or so, but on Sep 7th at 9w. I awoke to a lot more then just spotting. I had been bleeding on and off, so I thought it would stop. I had NO cramping. But I did notice however My boobs were not sore anymore. I went to the ER again on Sep 9th as the bleeding got worse, but still no cramping. The only thing I had was a small bit of pressure. No clots! We got an ultrasound done, and there was no heartbeat. The doctor informed me that I was in the process of a miscarriage. I just wanted to share my story. For comfort, I read other comments which gave me hope, so I delayed going to get checked out. Thinking it was normal. If you are reading this, and you are bleeding. DO not hesitate. If you haven't went to your DR. Go to the ER. Get checked out. There really is no way of knowing for sure what is going on. IF YOU HAVE A NEGATIVE BLOOD TYPE AND YOU ARE BLEEDING. Go to the DR! Your blood might not agree with the baby's blood, and you will need a shot. I know most cases of bleeding can be normal, but please get it checked out to be sure. worriedprego Sep 11, 2014 6:47pm [ 268 ]

Hi. I went to the ER Monday with some spotting/bleeding. I did have some cramps but mild and have had them for weeks. Bleeding started Monday morning and was a brownish color. It started to get more red and there was more of it. It was not staining a pad but was a decent amount every time I wiped. They did a blood/urine test and a transvaginal ultrasound. Lab work came back no infections and hcg levels 1500 which they said was normal for six weeks. During ultrasound they observed a sac and a fetal pole measuring 4mm and was saying I was 5weeks 6 days instead of 6 weeks no big deal. They also were able to pick up fetal heart rate of 134 bpm which they said was strong for fetal age. The fetus was shown to be intrauterine as well. They discharged me as a threatened miscarriage and said not to worry unless things (cramping and bleeding) got worse. I have continues bleeding until today. Only see slight pink occasionally. I'm worried that I miscarried in the last 4 days. I did not pass any clots or anything that I know of. My doctor is unwilling to see me for another 3 weeks. Have I or will I loose my baby?

Hello.. I believe I am around the 6 week mark in my pregnancy. A couple weeks ago I started to bleed, it went from flowing red to brown and then became pink to nothing. I had sex and that same night the bleeding came back, which I wasn't surprised at but now it's become heavy and dark and this morning there was clots/stringy. I have no cramps. I had an ultrasound last week and there was nothing showing as it was too early. The DR tells me I'm probably miscarrying, I don't think that's the case (keeping positive ) but clearly this is not normal. I feel that I should check into the ER but unsure. I bled for 2 weeks straight and now since this has started it's been 3 days so far. First pregnancy. 34 years old. Irregular. Advice would be appreciated greatly. Sabi Sam Oct 30, 2014 7:12pm [ 284 ]

Hi I had thought that I was pregnant. My last period started on September 27th and then I wasn't expecting it again until approx yesterday October 30th. I woke up Sunday morning with blood in my underwear and I thought it was just a period the blood slowed down and stopped Wednesday then started back at about 1230 pm yesterday with brighter blood one time when I went to the bathroom then the next time I went to the bathroom was light pink and then stopped completely until the same time today what does this mean? Am I pregnant I've been more tired and more irritated and getting headaches and dizzy some slightly I'm also type 1 diabetic and my sugars are up and down What could this mean?
