Vaginal bleeding or spotting can occur during pregnancy for many reasons. This can be a very frightening experience for an expectant mom. If you experience any bleeding during pregnancy contact your doctor immediately. Some women will have spotting or bleeding during early pregnancy. Twenty to twenty-five percent of women have spotting or bleeding during pregnancy. Half of these women go on to have no other problems due to the bleeding. This can be caused by many reasons.


Hello i was wondering the same thing. How did you go at the doctors? was it a misscarry, or was it implantation bleeding? Please reply, i think i am pregnant. Did you get any cramps for a couple of hours when you where bleeding this brown blood?


Hi, i might be 5weeks pregnant though i strongly believe that I'm only 3weeks.. My last period was March 25, 2008 and today is April 28,2008 and I'm having this thick brown spotting, it's mixed up with transparent mucus. Just a little amount of it but after few minutes it became watery and dark red and in greater amount that doesn't appear to be in spot stains anymore.. Anyway, my breasts feel bruised and im having back pains and cramps but the cramps got worse while im bleeding or having the brown spotting.. Is that just a 7 days late period? or it is a clear sign of pregnancy? pls. reply..

Bleeding during pregnancy is not "normal" but some light spotting is reported by about 50% of women in early pregnancy.

Spotting in early pregnancy occurs more frequently then one would suspect and is considered normal. The best thing to do is to follow closely with your local ob-gyn.

Could be. A lot of pregnant women say they spotted early in pregnancy. However, I always get brown spotting before a period.
