Is it normal to bleed in early pregnancy (before 12 weeks)? 

It’s common to have light bleeding or ‘spotting’ without pain before 12 weeks. This isn’t often serious, but you should contact your doctor, midwife or Early Pregnancy Unit immediately to be checked, just in case.

Bleeding in pregnancy after 12 weeks is not common. Contact A&E or your hospital maternity unit immediately so you can be checked.

What can cause bleeding in early pregnancy?

Light bleeding or spotting can happen in the first trimester (first 12 weeks of pregnancy) for a few reasons.

Implantation bleeding

Implantation is when the fertilised egg (developing embryo) is embedding into the wall of the womb. This usually happens around the time your period would normally have been due. Some women have had implantation bleeding after 8 weeks of pregnancy.

An implantation bleed is very light bleeding (spotting) that is usually pinkish and sometimes brown. You may see it when you wipe after going to the toilet or in your underwear. It shouldn’t be enough to soak through pads or underwear. Usually it only lasts for a day or so, though for some women it can last a little longer.

Cervical changes 

Pregnancy hormones can cause changes to the cervix, which can sometimes cause bleeding. The cervix gets an increased blood supply and becomes softer. This can cause some bleeding after sex (known as post-coital bleeding).

Infection

Occasionally, vaginal bleeding can also be caused by an infection.

Bleeding and miscarriage

Bleeding can sometimes be a sign of something more serious. Try to remember that many women who have bleeding in early pregnancy (before 12 weeks) go on to have a successful pregnancy. Just make sure that your symptoms are checked. 

Miscarriage

A miscarriage is when a pregnancy ends before 24 weeks.

Symptoms can include:

  • bleeding, especially bleeding that is bright red and and needs a pad
  • back or stomach pain or cramping.

Some women may experience a 'threatened miscarriage'. This is diagnosed where there is ongoing bleeding with or without pain but the woman is still pregnant.

Ectopic pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilised egg implants outside the womb, usually in the fallopian tube. Symptoms can include:

  • bleeding
  • tummy pain on one side
  • pain in the tip of the shoulder
  • discomfort when peeing or pooing.

Molar pregnancy

A molar pregnancy is when a foetus doesn't form properly in the womb and a baby doesn't develop. Symptoms can include:

  • bleeding
  • severe morning sickness
  • an unusually swollen tummy.

What are the causes of bleeding in late pregnancy (after 24 weeks)?

Some women may experience a light bleed later on in their pregnancy. This is may not be from inside the womb, but from the cervix, for example, which can cause bleeding after sex. This may settle and doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem, but you should contact the hospital maternity unit immediately so you can be checked, just in case.

There are two more serious causes of bleeding in late pregnancy:

Low-lying placenta (placenta praevia) 

The area where the placenta is attached usually stretches upwards away from your cervix. A low lying placenta is when the placenta stays low in your womb, near to or covering your cervix. This may block the baby’s way out. In most cases, this would have been seen at one of your routine ultrasound scans and you will have an extra scan later in your pregnancy to see if the placenta has moved up.   

If the placenta is still low in your womb you may blead heavily during your pregnancy and your baby’s birth. This can put you and your baby at risk. If you have a low lying placenta and you have bleeding you may need emergency treatment – call 999.  

You’re more likely to need a caesarean section if you have a low-lying placenta.

Placental abruption (abruptio placentea)

This is a serious condition in which the placenta starts to come away from the womb wall. It usually causes extreme stomach pain which does not come and go like contractions. It may occur even if there is no bleeding.

Contact your hospital maternity unit immediately if you are bleeding in late pregnancy.

Find out more about placental abruption.

Rhesus negative

During your antenatal care your midwife will find out your blood group and whether you have rhesus positive or negative blood. Knowing which group you are in is important. If you have rhesus negative blood, but your partner has rhesus positive blood, your baby has a chance of having rhesus positive blood too. If this happens, your body might see your baby’s blood as different to yours and develop antibodies. These antibodies can pass across the placenta and attack your baby’s blood cells.

This won’t normally affect your first pregnancy, but it can be very serious in later pregnancies. Because of this, if you have rhesus negative blood your midwife will offer you an injection called anti-D during your pregnancy to protect your baby.

If you have any bleeding or trauma to your bump (for example, if you fall over) contact your midwife or hospital maternity unit immediately. You may need to be checked and possibly have another injection of anti-D.

Talk to your midwife if you have any questions about your and your baby’s blood type.

Where should I seek help for bleeding in pregnancy?

Any bleeding in pregnancy should be investigated even if you are not experiencing any other symptoms. It is important to make contact with a health professional to be seen as soon as possible.

Before 12 weeks pregnant

If you feel generally well and the bleeding is not heavy, then you can call your GP or midwife (if you have one yet) for an appointment who can then assess if they need to refer to the local Early Pregnancy Unit. Sometimes, you can self-refer to a local Early Pregnancy Unit depending on your history and where you live. If you call your local GP surgery they should be able to advise you. 

You can also call NHS 111 if you feel you need urgent medical help but it is not an emergency.

Go to your local A&E if you are experiencing bleeding and:

  • it is during the night or at the weekend when a GP is unavailable
  • the bleeding is heavy
  • the pain is severe
  • you feel generally unwell

After 12 weeks pregnant

Go to your local A&E or contact the hospital maternity unit immediately so you can be checked, just in case.

What to expect if you need to go to the Early Pregnancy Unit?

When you go to the Early Pregnancy Unit you may wish to bring someone with you for support.

Firstly, you’ll be asked about:

  • your symptoms
  • your medical history
  • any previous pregnancies
  • the date that your last period started (so they can estimate how many weeks pregnant you may be).

Then, they may ask you to provide a urine sample to confirm that you are pregnant, or you may have an ultrasound scan.

They may also do an internal scan, where a small probe is inserted through your vagina to get a clearer picture. This is helpful if you are very early on in your pregnancy. It is not possible to do an abdominal scan as the pregnancy sac is tucked deep inside the uterus, in the pelvis, so a vaginal scan is the only option this early in the pregnancy.

Ultrasound scans are safe to have and do not carry any risk of causing a miscarriage.

It’s unlikely that they will be able to see a heartbeat if you’re not around 6-7 weeks pregnant yet. Instead, they will be checking the size of the pregnancy sac and that it is in the womb. This helps to rule out an ectopic pregnancy.

It’s usually possible to see the baby’s heartbeat from about 7 weeks. Sometimes they may need to invite you back for another scan about 1-2 weeks after your first one if:

  • they want to check the baby’s growth
  • they could not get a good enough picture during the first scan
  • your bleeding or other symptom continue.

Other tests and examinations you may have

A speculum and/or vaginal examination

This involves a small instrument covered in gel being inserted into the vagina. This allows the doctor to check the neck of the womb to see if there is any obvious cause for the bleeding. It isn’t painful, but it can sometimes be a little uncomfortable.

Vaginal swab

This involves inserting a swab (which looks like a long cotton bud into the vaginal to collect some cells. This is to check for infections, such as chlamydia. The swab is safe to do and not painful.

A blood test

This is done to check your pregnancy hormone level (hCG). If this is under 5 IU/L then this indicates that you are not pregnant.

If it is above 5 IU/L they will expecting it to double about every 2-3 days, so they may ask you to come back to the unit for another blood test a few days later to see if the level is rising or falling.

Depending on the results of these tests, they will plan with you what will happen next. It can be a bit overwhelming when you get a lot of information at once, especially at stressful times, so feel free to ask as many questions as you need to make sure you understand what is happening and what to expect. They should also give you some written information to take away with you and a contact number to call in case you have further questions or need advice when you get home.

Bleeding in pregnancy when you have had a previous miscarriage

If you have bleeding in your current pregnancy after one or more previous miscarriages, recent research has shown that progesterone can be beneficial. This research was published in 2019 and showed that the more previous miscarriages you had, the greater the benefit from progesterone treatment.

Progesterone is a hormone that helps thicken the lining of the womb and the mother’s body to accept the growing baby. It is given as pessaries (tablets) and taken twice daily in the vagina (like inserting a tampon).

The study that showed that progesterone can be an effective treatment was a large, multi-centre, randomised controlled trial, which is the gold standard of research trials.

4,153 women with early pregnancy bleeding from 48 hospitals across the UK participated in the study. Around half the women were given vaginal progesterone tablets and the other half were given placebo (dummy) tablets. The findings were:

  • For women with no previous miscarriages: the live birth rate was 74% (824/1111) in the progesterone group and 75% (840/1127) in the placebo group, i.e no benefit.
  • For women who have had 1 to 2 previous miscarriages: the live birth rate was 76% (591/777) in the progesterone group and 72% (534/738) in the placebo group, i.e some benefit.
  • For women who have had three or more previous miscarriages: the live birth rate was 72% (98/137) in the progesterone group and 57% (85/148) in the placebo group, ie substantial benefit.

The study did not find any safety concern from progesterone treatment.

Talk to your doctor

If you have early pregnancy bleeding and a history of a previous miscarriage, progesterone treatment can be of benefit. As this research is relatively recent, your doctor may not have heard of it, so please discuss this treatment with your GP or the doctors at your local Early Pregnancy Unit. If necessary, show them this information or or download this leaflet and take it with you.

      I’m trying not to worry but it’s hard. I have been experiencing very light mucus with a red or brown streak to it for few days now on and off throughout the day. No pains or anything else apart from normal pregnancy nausea (light). I went for scan on Friday to be told could see baby in uterus all looked ok with no bleeding where shouldn’t be but the spotting hasn’t stopped. IM trying to be positive but it’s hard. I wondered if it could be as i had to have vontuce and forceps when my son was born..

      Hi im 6 weeks pregnant. 2 weeks ago i had a scan because my doctor worked out that i was 9 weeks pregnant. At the scan they couldnt see anything. So they done a blood test and hcg level was 244. I went back 72 hours after for another blood test and my hcg level was 937. Ive been having very light pink to brown to light red bleeding for 10 days no pain. I rung up midwife today and she said just to keep an eye on it.... its been 10 days not happy.... but does this mean im losing my baby?? I got a scan on thursday to check heart beating which was booked 2 weeks ago but im worried

    • By Jen Morales (not verified) on 10 Mar 2020 - 21:39

      Get an ultrasound. Bleeding is never “normal” and if there is a steady increase in the bleeding no matter how minor it is cause for concern. Get checked out for a peace of mind.

    • By Tally (not verified) on 20 Jan 2020 - 19:19

    • By Taisha Solvie (not verified) on 14 Dec 2019 - 07:59

      I’m 8 weeks pregnant and I had really light brown spotting two days ago and went to the ER and since my breast tenderness hasn’t been the same and just now I had brown spotting that looks to me like old blood in my underwear. Am I freaking out or is something wrong??

    • By Melanie Askew (not verified) on 4 Jan 2020 - 00:03

      I’ve had this a few times apparently it’s completely normal it’s just your body getting rid of old blood.

      Hi,

      I’m 6 weeks pregnant and have had 1 wipe a day last Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of very pale pink discharge.

      I’ve had a miscarriage in March this year, which resulted in Asherman’s syndrome but have had surgery to help. I’m so paranoid, I worry about everything.

      Is this something I need to worry about. I have a scan booked for next Wednesday so will mention it to my gyno again but need some positivity!

      I’m 7 weeks 4 days pregnant and have been having spotting / bleeding on and off since 5 weeks. I had a scan yesterday which looked “normal” with a foetus present and a heart beat and I was discharged. I had more bleeding today which was fresh bright pink and required a pad. I’m not sure what to do because I’ve already been seen and told everything is ok and then I’ve been discharged. It doesn’t seem life threatening so I don’t want to go to A&E but there is rather a lot of blood and if I’m having a miscarriage I would like to know. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    • By kg (not verified) on 23 Dec 2019 - 01:51

      I'm 10 weeks pregnant and yesterday morning I woke up with a blood clot in my underwear. And this morning I went pee and brownish looking blood streaks. I went to the hospital and said everything was okay. I go see my ob tomorrow. Its so frustrating that the hospital didn't tell me hardly anything.

    • By N (not verified) on 26 Nov 2019 - 18:40

      I’m 5+4 and had a bleed today, I had a mmc in January and a chemical pregnancy immediately before this pregnancy. I attended epu today with the leaflet and despite the evidence my trust still won’t prescribe progesterone. I had a scan and pregnancy still in womb with evidence of a bleed above it. Any suggestions how I can get the progesterone when my trust are ignoring the evidence?

    • By Hazel (not verified) on 4 Dec 2019 - 23:00

      Not to worry you but you need to get on to them.. I had a bleed outside the sac from 6 weeks til around 20weeks and this led to my waters breaking at 24 weeks..I lasted til 26 weeks and i went into labour with my son. I lost him during labour as it was so stressful for him. Please keep pestering them u need asprin too x

    • By Christina (not verified) on 3 Nov 2019 - 16:22

      Why doesn’t this article talk about subchorionic hemorrhage (or more generally even intrauterine hemorrhage)?

      It’s a fairly common cause of bleeding in the first and second trimesters, and it would be helpful for the readers to know about if they don’t fall into the other categories, and it would be helpful to know that it usually resolves on it’s own.

    • By Anonymous (not verified) on 24 Nov 2019 - 10:46

      I am 10 weeks pregnant and have had two heavy bleeds two days apart. Iv had two previous miscarriages, one at 6 and one at 10 weeks so of course I thought the worst. I didn’t/don’t however have any cramping or pain and still have pregnancy symptoms which gave me some comfort. Had a scan a EPU and saw baby happily wriggling away. They said I have hematomas which get absorbed into the uterine lining but in some women they come out vaginally hence the bleed and are nothing to worry about and is a common cause of bleeding in pregnancy. Reading on NHS website, here and on other sites, there is no mention of this. Why not if it’s common? I then saw your comment and it made me feel so much better that all will be ok so thank you x

      My boyfriend and I was having intercourse when he pulled out he thought he had made my menstrual come on but i already had my menstrual for that month and the blood was light pink and only when I whipped. The next day it was heavy bright red blood I could stand in shower and it would be just steadily coming out bright red with a bunch of little clots and some normal natural cramping and severe back pain it slowed down about 10 days later I figured it was just another period just heavy but two days later and when I whipe it's still bright red blood my tubes are tied should I be worried.

      Hi,

      I am 18+0 and yesterday morning I noticed a light brown tinted discharge. No pain or cramps and saw a midwife and ob/gyn doctor yesterday who checked my cervix and said it looked ok. They didn't do an US , just a doppler and heard the heartbeat straight away. I was re-assured but this morning it happened again. Should I worry or go back?

    • By Maricris (not verified) on 18 Jun 2019 - 02:37

      Hi, I went to the bathroom and wiped and there was one swipe of bright red blood. Went to the ER and everything was deemed fine, haven't had bleeding since that one time. I had a miscarriage 4 years ago and no live births in between then and now. Is it normal to see bright red blood (very minimal - just one stripe on the toilet paper). Trying not to freak out but still continuously worried.

      Weall you ovulate day 14 after the first day of your last period so April 2nd *my birthday and when I conceived* plus 14 equals April 16th you ovulate, so you should two weeks after that have or miss your period, and if you just bled a little that could be the embryo implanting into the lining of your uterus. It's late enough now you can take a test. Hope you get the results you want. :)

      I started bleeding on 5/9/19 close to the estimated start date (5-11-19), but it was extremely light and only lasted 2 1/2, 3 days . The flow stayed consistent was a bright red only when I wiped nothing in the toilet. I took a two dollar store test the both said negative. I did have see a little lining shed the last day which totally made me feel as if it was an irregular period rather then implantation. Should I test again?
