  • I spotted after sex with one of mine and went on to lose the baby. I'm sorry to be a bit scary but it can happen. Some women are senstive to the prostagladins in semen even in early pregnancy (it's these that can induce labour in some mums). I was one of those. So with my following three pregnancies we avoided unprotected sex altogether. I don't know your situation but if you are getting a warning, I can't help but say leave off unprotected sex if you're pregnant and spotting after sex.

  • You can also get spotting after sex from just getting cut up a little bit on the inside from the "wear and tear" of your activities.

    You'll usually see that this blood looks more like a cut than uterine blood - it's got a thinner, more liquid texture, and is more consistent in its coloring.

  • Yeah its normal. It can happen also after they check you. As long as its not filling a panty liner up your fine.
