  • Yes this can be completely normal.

    However if it continues or gets worse call your doctor!

  • thats normal, its spotting. if you had alot of blood and/or period like cramps i would say go to the emergency room. you should be ok and baby should be ok too.

  • Very normal, you may expierence slight spotting for a number of reasons for some time or even your entire pregnancy. You should always inform your OB, that's what they are there for or they may have a nurse line that is very helpful!
    No worries, you don't normally need to abstain for 9 months!

  • It could either be implantation bleeding, or irritation from having sex. If it was just light bleeding, you're okay. The same thing happened to me when I was 8 weeks along, and I was so mad when the doc would not take me in! But the bleeding lasted for one "toilet sitting", and at my next doc appt, she told me it was implantiation bleeding. Whew!

  • Your cervix and everything around there is soo sensitive that sometimes it becomes irritated during sex. Which can lead to spotting. If there isn't any excess bleeding or the spotting doesn't continue then it's fine. If you fill a pad, or the spotting continues for more then a few hours you shouldn't worry.
