I know only a dr. can help, but I am really worried. I have been lightly bleeding since 2/21 and at first it was brownish, and now its bright red. No cramping, not heavy, but I've been bleeding for a week and a half. My bloodwork says I'm 5-6 weeks pregnant, and I took it after I had been bleeding for about a week already. Anyone have any clue what is going on?

  • Of course only a doctor can tell you for sure, but I have a friend who bled for almost a month right after she found she was pregnant and now she has a healthy little boy. Still I think it would be better to make an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can.

  • I have something like this now my placenta has pulled away from my uterus and have created a bleed . They found this in a US have you had a US? If I were you I would go to the doc or the ER.
    Red blood mean new blood and thats not to good. Best of luck to you. Also they told me I would be find just had to take it easy for awhile and it would heal its self.

  • no tissue or clotting or tissue.. I made an appointment to see me OBGYN, but its not until Monday! Almost a week away. I called my midwife and she told me to call her right away if I have heavy bleeding or cramping, so far I don't. I will call my Primary physician tomorrow I guess because I am so worried.
