  • I agree with the previous posters! I have had several miscarriages, and I know how paranoid and nutty you can get, more than likely everything is okay,,,call you OB and go in to be checked out, I will say a prayer for you! Usually, you would bleed like a period, it is a good sign that the blood looks old,, huggles!

  • Call your OB/GYN just to make sure everything is ok. Never feel like your over reacting its best to be safe.

  • I would contact your dr. Sexual contact, of any kind, can cause some spotting. I would speak with the dr to make sure everything is ok.

  • If it were me I'd go in to the doctor and have it checked out-- just to be sure all is well.

  • It is pretty common, but if I were you I would stop having sex until after the first trimester. Under the right conditions, sex can cause you to miscarry in early pregnancy. Granted it doesn't happen often, but why risk it especially when you've already had a miscarriage.

  • U know i just had the same thing happen to me this weekend but im 15 weeks along! dr said the brown is dry old blood and will come out and as long as im not having cramps to go with it to not worry.... they said if it is more than a big tablespoon full to go to the dr and get checked...

  • I was wondering if everything is okay?

  • I have called them to let them know, but they said its common when you have an orgasm etc....that you pop a blood vessel etc.....
    I just wanted to ask, bc i dont think its normal...unless something tends to be wrong :/

  • I wouldn't worry too much. Did he finger you? That may have stimulated your cervix, which can cause some spotting. It's okay to have sex, to orgasm, any of it is fine. As far as bleeding goes, the heavy bleeding with cramping is when to be concerned (and, as you may already know, if a miscarriage is imminent or happening, there's nothing that can stop it).
    I'm so sorry for your loss. I think it's very normal to be so concerned after suffering a major loss like that. I'm glad they reassured it it was okay.
    Give yourself time to heal before this baby comes, and try to enjoy this pregnancy! I hope everything goes more smoothly for you this time!
