Sometimes spotting is harmless, but sometimes it's a sign of something more serious. Here is some advice from women who've been there - and some of their firsthand experiences, too.
Don't panic! First find out what's going on with your body.
Some women's experiences of spotting and miscarriage:
Here is more advice and input from others:
I dont know about everyone else but, when I was pregnant (at what must have been 4-5 weeks) it felt like my period was going to come at any time. Kept waiting.... And at about 4 days- 1 week after I had been excpecting my period, I got a positive pregnancy test. In the weeks before, and leading up to this point, I had the same type of cervical mucus you would expect before you got your period. Also my cervix was low for a good week or two (Like my period was coming) before it finally went up and stayed there at about 5 weeks pregnant. From there on I had cervical mucus you would get while you are ovulating or turned on. Also some other symptoms I had that may not be common, but were noticed very early in my pregnancy were;
* An impending feeling of getting your period soon.
* An annoyingly runny nose.
* Bubbly feeling in my stomach, (towards the top by your sternum) kind of like when your really hungry and just drank some really carbonated soda.
* Very tired.
* Irrationally moody and snappy for no obvious reason.
* The general feeling of maybe being pregnant.
* Very thirsty! All the time.
* Having to urinate more often.
* I had slightly sore nipples this time. In the first pregnancy they hurt really bad though. They also feel very heavy and big pretty early on.
Slight skin changes. For example: Breaking out and dry skin early on then nice smooth perfect complexion after about the 7th week on.
I was 8 weeks pregnant when i started losing my baby.I thought it was blood clots, but if you look closer its really placenta around the baby, as if it's slimy. You will also have a discharge of blood. My husband also noticed i was a little more cranky but it's too bad.
The most common symptom of a miscarriage is bleeding,if you bleed during pregnancy it may be referred to as a threatened abortion. It can also be detected during an ultrasound exam,if there is bleeding you should visit a clinic to have an ultrasound exam.
You can tell your having a Miscarriage by spotting/bleeding. i had a a miscarriage on the 24 of Sept and it started out by just spotting than when i went to the hospital it got worse!! BUT in some pregnancies people spot so if you spot just go to the doctor to check it out! Some people dont even know they had a miscarriage if it happend early, like it could have happened the time your period was saposed to come! you coulda mistaked it as a period!
Yes. Spotting during the first trimester is very normal and sometimes spotting may go along with mild cramps. Many times the spotting is caused by your uterus growing and breaking small vessels for more room. However if you are having spotting which continues to bleeding and filling a maxi an hour for 3 hours along with heavy cramping there is a great chance you are having a miscarriage. When you are in this situation Dr's advise on an immediate call and will have you come in, even though there is nothing they can do to stop the miscarriage, before or during, if there is a problem with you...i.e bleeding wont stop or anything more problematic happens they can help you.
You will have yellow discharge until your period stops witch is at 45-55 years old, and yes it is normal.
Brown vaginal discharge can also be a symptom of some serious medical conditions.Answer
You have some spotting when you ovulate and before and after your period. This is pretty normal. This pinkish/brownish color is blood and there is so little that it just tints your discharge. Spotting is very normal for both of those times during the cycle.
Also it could be implantation bleeding where the egg implants into the uterus, that is if you are sexually active and have not been using protection.
It could be Implantation bleeding sign of pregnancy or just a problem which is nothing to do with pregnancy. Go and see a doctor.
Spotting before periods in women over 30 can also indicate the beginning of perimenopause. When spotting appears 2-3 days before the periods are due, it can indicate that the corpus luteum is breaking down too early causing the luteal phase to be shorter than normal. Perimenopause spotting is cause by sudden drop in estrogen levels and low progesterone production due to anovulatory cycles. If a woman is trying to get pregnant and her luteal phase is shorter that 10-12 days she may suffer an early miscarriage. Other possible causes can be cervical dysplasia, endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, UTI, yeast infection, STDs, etc.
If a woman has a IUD, this can also be the cause.
Making a doctor's appointment to discuss this situation is a very good idea in order to get proper diagnosis and treatment.
Yes, providing it is not heavy or very painful
The doctor told me I'm more than 6 weeks pregnant which I find it hard to believe because I did a home pregnancy test a couple of weeks after my last period and it showed negative. So judging by my own instinct and the home pregnancy tests I had
been taken subsequently after my last cycle, I think I'm just about getting into my 4th week. I still feel uncomfortable with male doctors but since female doctors in my hospital have not been available, so it leaves me no choice. Should I/ Can I really believe what my male doctor tells me?
Yesterday I went to the ER right after I got off the plane from a trip because I have
been spotting for the past two days. At first, it was just dark brown spotting accompanied with mild cramps and bloating sensation just like a period. After an ultrasound and a pelvic exam yesterday, the nurse told me I didn't need to go to the ER again unless I experience severe cramps, bleeding and/or blood clots. The doctor said everything was fine; the embryo was where it's supposed to be and my cervix was closed but I'm not "out of the woods yet". Today, the color of my spotting/bleeding has become more liquid-like and bright red with occasional small blood clots and prickling sensations. I called the ER and was told that I could go back to the ER whenever I feel the symptoms have gotten worse, but all they will do is perform the same procedures again - ultrasound and a pelvic exam.
What should I do at this point?
I'm very worried that the insertion of the speculum and/or the continuity of spotting and bleeding is going to cause any deformity of the baby.Answer
I also recommend going to see your OB. No bleeding during pregnancy is "normal", though it is common. Even spotting should be looked at. DO NOT think that just because you are spotting, everything is automatically okay. During my first pregnancy, I had very little spotting in my 9th week. The spotting lasted 8 days before I finally thought to go to the ER...everyone kept telling me, "oh, it's normal." NEVER!! I ended up having a missed miscarriage and the next day my body aborted the embryo. Now, in my 2nd pregnancy, I'm having more spotting and I'm not taking any chances. I'm not trying to scare you, but rather, make you aware that although it's common for many women, it's not normal during pregnancy and it always merits a doctor's opinion and checkup.Answer
I recommend going to the doctor immediately, even if you have to make $5 monthly payments on the visit, I had it happen after 4 weeks for a day, and then at 11 weeks, i had another spot which turned into a miscarriage. that is the most emotionally and physically painful thing i have ever gone through. GO TO A DOCTOR if you care about this child.
It is completely normal. I have been having light brown spotting for the past week and a half. I a had a ultrasound today and everything was fine!!Answer
I was sent this link from someone on another site. First of all, regarding the first post above, the one that states "Go to a Doctor if you care about this child" First of all, that is a horrible thing to say, of course we all care about our unborn children. Also, I must let you know that if you are having a miscarriage there is NOTHING you can do to prevent one and nothing you can do to stop one. Most m/c's happen due to the fetus having chromosone issues and no doctor can fix that. While spotting in pregnancy is common, it shouldn't be considered normal. Most doctors don't want you to come in unless the spotting turns bright red and is accompanied with cramps as well. God Bless you all and good luck!

i am 7 wks pregnant and am having light spotting. while seaching for some answers i found this reliable information off of www.providence.org. answers were given from a director of obstetrics and gyneocology. compared to some other websites that gave some scary advice, i felt a little relieved after i read the following info.
in the first 3 months of pregnancy spotting is quite common. it can be attributed to early development in the uterus; your body is producing more blood to carry nutrients to the fetus. a little bleeding is not uncommon. unless there is a lot of bleeding, like a normal period, along with severe cramps, there is no cause for concern.Answer
spotting could be considered normal or dangerous sign of miscarriage, depending on the individual. I had two miscarriages within one year and they both started with "light spotting". I would contact your health care provider immediately.Answer
I thought this website's answers were good. The key is to distinguish between spotting (a little blood, don't need a pad/liner) and bleeding (more blood, bright red or needs a pad)
spotting is probably just "hormonal changes." and bleeding is something you need to see your MD about. might be a miscarriage.
Spotting during the first 3 months of pregnancy does occur but spotting red blood is not normal hun. Everytime you experience spotting you will need to contact your doctor for a examination and to make sure the pregnancy is safe.
First off, try not to freak out regardless because stress will only make things worse. Second, every woman and every pregnancy is different, even doctors disagree on how much blood should be present before you go in for a checkup. I've had 3 healthy babies and 2 miscarriages and being an army wife I've had several OBGYN's so I can tell you there is no black or white on this subject, period. If you are worried, CALL YOUR DOCTOR and they will tell you their medical opinion. Sometimes women bleed in pregnancy for reasons that have nothing whatsoever to do with the health of the baby (such as spotting after intercourse) and go on to have normal deliveries. Sometimes there are no warning signs at all and the baby doesn't make it. The ONLY ONLY ONLY way to know for sure whether your baby is healthy or not is to do bloodwork and a sonogram, and the only person that can answer all these questions is a medical doctor or a midwife that knows your history and your pregnancy.
Brown vaginal discharge is most often associated with old endometrial tissues. If your period is late you might get a brown, rather than red, discharge. It could also mean that for whatever reason during your last menses the entire uterine lining failed to make a timely exit. Brown Discharge may happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown. This may occur when you are ovulating in the middle of menstrual cycle.
Brown vaginal discharge can also be a symptom of a medical concern that is much more sinister than leftover endometrial cells. Some of these conditions include Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), menopause, sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, Chlamydia or genital warts) or cervical cancer.
Sometimes brown discharge could appear during using birth control pills which is a side effect of pills.
It is called breakthrough bleeding, the color is brown because it is old blood. It is a very common side effect when taking the pill. If you are not on the pill, ask your doctor to ensure it's not a sign of something more serious. Luck to you.
Irregular periods and spotting in between periods is quite frequent among women. If it happens once in a while (meaning up to a couple times a year), it might not mean anything serious.
The brown color is due to old blood cells sometimes mixed in with discharge.
If it happens frequently, you should contact your doctor or gynecologist.
The above it true, but also a woman might have light bleeding when she is ovulating.
All of the above is true but its not serious if you have brown spots. After all the system is cleaning its self!
Spotting between periods could also mean that you are pregnant.
Spotting can not be considered as a sign of pregnancy. It is better to do the urine test for pregnancy. It should be fallowed by ultrasound examination in normal course.
Normally it's a sign of miscarriage. Go to the ER immediately.
Here is advice and input:
implantation bleeding is bright red usually and lasts 1-2 hours and saoks less than 1 pad good luck
Most likely, i had my spotting while i was having sex, it was a light pink bleeding and i though i got my period. it went away within 2 days and came back randomly another time. I googled it and it said that can be a cause of a std like gonorrhea, i was freaking out but nope, turns out im pregnant! I suggest you go to a clinic and figure out what is wrong, all girl bodies are different and not knowing doesnt solve anything! it could just be your period is changing or stress!
Believe it or not, you are not the first, nor will you be the last, to experience bleeding during pregnancy. In fact, I'm just happy to hear you call it vaginal bleeding instead of your period, as so many women confuse.
Generally speaking, bleeding is normal during the first trimester. There are some constraints to this however. These range from the flow to the appearance, from frequency to other concurrent symptoms.
If you're experiencing light spotting periodically throughout the days or weeks early on, chances are it is implantation bleeding. If it sometimes seems light, sometimes seems like you are menstruating, this is referred to as early pregnancy bleeding and is caused by hormonal changes in the body as a result of the implantation and pregnancy. If it appears that it you are loosing very small amounts of tissue and/or heavy flow, this is called decidual bleeding. If you were on the pill when you got pregnant, and stopped taking it because you got pregnant, this is another cause for some bleeding. All of these things are considered "normal," "common," and "non-emergency."
However, there are some emergency causes of bleeding. If you are experiencing bleeding that begins light then becomes very heavy with also strong lower abdominal pain that comes and goes, this is a sign of miscarriage. If you have brown spotting, continuous or not, with any kind of abdominal and/or shoulder pain, this is a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. Molar pregnancies have a continuous brownish discharge. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms (any pain is a huge hint here) you must called your doctor immediately for instruction. If he's not in, head to your nearest ER right away.
The main thing is to make sure you inform your OB/GYN of any and all bleeding issues, unless he tells you otherwise. Keep a journal and write down everything you can think of: flow (light, heavy, or in between), color, any odors, any sign of tissue (small or large) especially tissue fragments that are solid (if there are, try to save them in a jar to be evaluated by your doctor), whether it is intermittent or continuous, when it started and ended, and any other concurrent symptoms, such as pain, headaches, nausea, vomiting, weakness, fever, etc. Give all of this information to your doctor at your next visit, unless it constitutes an emergency, in which case you must head to the ER. Your doctor will want to evaluate all of these and determine the cause (if it's even possible, as it is often difficult), and instruct you in what you need to do.
The related question linked below contains a lot of information in regards to the different cases of vaginal bleeding.
I don't know what you are asking exactly, but no bleeding while you are pregnant isn't normal. You need to go see a doctor right away. It could be nothing, but it could also be something very serious. It's never normal to bleed while pregnant, go see a doctor.
There is something called decidual bleeding. It may seem like a normal period, but is not. It can occur up to 12 weeks during pregnancy. It may sometimes mean m/c, you should ask your doc though. When in doubt ask your doc... no matter what. There is no such thing as too many questions.
Can I just add that no bleeding during any time in pregnancy should be considered normal while the bleeding may be nothing serious you really need to get to your doctor or clinic asap there may be a problem that can be fixed and everything may be fine but I'm sure you would like to know one way or the other !
I am 6 weeks pregnant and i have some spotting. It worried me at first so i went to the doctor he told me that everything was fine and that some women have some spotting during early pregnancy. Some women even have a period throughout their entire pregnancy. I wouldn't worry too much because worrying could put more unwanted stress on your body.
After you're missed period or if u have any symptoms. Or you can go check with your doctor.
im assuming that you are pregnant... some women just do. tell your doctor imediatly thow. there could be something wrong with the baby. most likely not thow, but you can never be to safe.
Yes, we generally have much more discharge while we are pregnant.
most likely that you are pregnant, there could be other reasons. if you are pregnant and spotting, i would get to a doctor right away. it could mean infection or miscarriage
More input from FAQ Farmers:
yes it is it called Implantation bleeding I got it but got my period 2 weeks later but they have got into a weird pattern I got implantation bleeding in may the 2nd now its September and I'm a day late . Some women have a period while pregnant which i hope is happening to me lol anyway good luck!!
No. You can only have one person when you play The Sims Social. Hope this helped!
== == Yes, it is possible you are pregnant if your period is late and you have spotting, but the only way to know for sure is to take a test. If you can't afford one, try getting an appointment at a local clinic such as planned parenthood.
Different types of discharge and self evaluation
White discharge: Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.
Clear and stretchy discharge: This is "fertile" mucous and means you are ovulating.
Clear and watery discharge: This occurs at different times of your cycle and can be particularly heavy after exercising.
Yellow or Green discharge: May indicate an infection, especially if thick or clumpy like cottage cheese or has a foul odor.
Brown discharge: May happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown.
Spotting Blood and/or Brown Discharge: This may occur when you are ovulating/mid-cycle. Sometimes early in pregnancy you may have spotting or a brownish discharge at the time your period would normally come. If you have spotting at the time of your normal period rather than your usual amount of flow, and you have had sex without using birth control, you should check a pregnancy test.
Yes, you can be spotting and be pregnant. It is called implantation bleeding. It usually occurs about 8-9 days after ovulation, which is around the time of your period.
If you definitively know that you are pregnant, then spotting when you know that you are pregnant is also normal. As the cell mass grows, then it can break tiny blood vessels and cause spotting. However, if the spotting intensifies and is accompanied by cramping, get it checked out as these are the precursors to miscarriage. Take a pregnancy test and see your doctor to know for sure.
