  • Anytime anything is inserted into your vagina, it can irritate it and cause bleeding.

  • if it is your mucus plug just call your doctor it dosent always mean you will go into labor soon, i lost my plug a whole month before i had my son and i went a week over due and had to be induced.

  • I lost mine about a week and a half before I had my son. It looked like mucus with blood in it.
