Hello tow and thanks for your question. Dr. Lori A. Corrillo, an OB/GYN out of Arizona says “bleeding in pregnancy is never normal” but states it’s important to get to your physician to learn why this may be happening.
To find out more about what she has to say, please visit this link.

According to several sources, bleeding during the first half of pregnancy may have several causes including a cervical infection, an ectopic pregnancy, a urinary tract infection, a miscarriage, a threatened miscarriage or a molar pregnancy.
And, according to the National Institutes of Health, about 10 percent of women experience vaginal bleeding at some time during their pregnancy, especially in the first three months. And it’s more common with twins.

Before heading out to visit your doctor, check out the risk factors at the link below to determine whether or not you may bleed during pregnancy. Do any of these on the list sound familiar to you?

If so, be sure to share them with your doctor. Please update us with what you've learned.
