  • I just answered your other question lol. I did say I thought you'd be alright and spotting after sex is normal, but how long have you been spotting now?

  • Your cervix can become irritated after sex which causes spotting, maybe put in a call to your OB just in case.

  • Spotting after sex could just be irritation to the cervix or a symptom of something else, like a STD. Run it by your dr to be safe.

  • Give your ob a call just in case, but your cervix is probably just a little irratated. I am 15 weeks also and actually just stopped bleeding. I had been bleeding from 3 weeks pregnant till now. When the doctor did my physical exam she had told me that your cervix is very sensitive when you are pregnant and sex, more activity than normal, even being constipated could irratate your cervix. Try not to worry, I am sure all is fine, but as I said before give your doctor a call just to be safe.
