Spotting during early pregnancy

Christine - posted on 07/10/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am 7 weeks pregnant and about a week ago I was spotting. It wasn't a lot and it didn't last long but I panicked and went to my doctor. She said everything looked fine. And i thought that maybe it was caused from sex. Since then, every time we have sex, I spot a little bit after and then it doesnt happen anymore. This is my second pregnancy and I didn't spot at all the first time. Has this happened to anyone else?

Yep, normal. Some women continue to have periods throughout their entire pregnancy and still have healthy babies. Your cervix is engorged with blood right now and the act of sex may just be enough to cause a tiny abrasion that bleeds a little and heals itself. If it doesn't hurt, you're not cramping, and you're not bleeding excessive amounts you're probably fine. :)

Its possible to spot after sex one time and not the next, I think as long as its just a little spotting and no cramping not to worry to much.. Congrats on your pregnancy
