BLEEDING DURING PREGNANCY
Bleeding during the first trimester is quite common and is not necessarily a threatened miscarriage. Bleeding can appear in various forms e.g. spotting or blood clots. You should inform your GP or Obstetrician. However, if you are over 20 weeks pregnant you should seek medical advice immediately and do not use tampons only wear pads.
There are a few reasons for bleeding:
- A fertilised egg attaches itself to the uterine lining
- Bleeding may occur during the times of your period.
- A threatened miscarriage.
- Bleeding after sexual
- Bleeding from the placenta
- Uterine fibroids.
