All begun, when I started having periods pain symptoms. I thought I was going to have my periods but after 3 days of late periods, I decided to buy a home pregnancy test. It tested positive so the same day I went to a gynecologist.
He asked me questions like when did I have my last period etc.. Instead of doing a blood test or urine test, he introduced his fingers into my vagina and then he confirmed my pregnancy and told me to come back in a month.
How can a doctor confirm pregnancy just with his fingers?
I am now 3 weeks pregnant, I guess. Yesterday night,I had a few very very light blood vaginal fluid but it stopped, is it normal?
Please I need some help ASAP.
What the ob looks for is the uterus, and how it feels. There are certain things he can feel. Although it is not common to bleed during pregnancy, but it does happen. Some women can even have regular periods all the way up to their due date. But when you do bleed this early in the pregnancy, I would definitely suggest to get in to see your obgyn. Better safe than sorry. Good luck.

It's not your uterus the Dr. was checking, there's no way to get to it through the cervix. It's the cervix he was checking. During early pregnancy, the cervix closes tighter and becomes blue in color. Cervical mucus also tends to change during during early pregnancy, so the cervical mucus would begin increasing due to hormonal fluctuation and blood flow to the uterus.
Spotting is normal in the beginning of pregnancy, I spotted wit all 4 of mine, as well as had a bit of cramping, which can also be normal. If, though you experience heavy bleeding with very painful cramping, you should call your OB. Best Wishes.
