- What are all the reasons somebody could bleed while pregnant??
- Infections of the bladder or kidneys, or a vaginal infection can all cause you to bleed during pregnancy. Any discharge from the womb would be clotty at this point, rather liver looking and nasty- after all it’s old blood and pretty advance…

- Can You have your menstrual period while pregnant?
- Q: YES, THIS IS LONG…BUT PLEASE READ AND THEN COMMENT IF YOU WOULD LIKE. I WISH YOU BEST WITH YOUR PREGNANCIES :)Many women report having their period while pregnant, but typically this is not the case. The reason why this cannot be is that pregnancy and menstruation cannot take place at the same time, by the very definition of the two. If you were pregnant and you began menstruating you would inevitably lose the pregnancy, or have a miscarriage. While you cannot have your period and continue to be pregnant at the same time you can experience vaginal bleeding and continue to be pregnant. It is often this vaginal bleeding that women believe is their menstrual cycle when it is not.Early pregnancy bleeding is not at all uncommon and many women report that they do bleed regularly during the early portion of their pregnancies. This is not at all a menstrual cycle though; it is usually referred to as early pregnancy bleeding. This bleeding is usually is due to hormonal changes and is not of the quantities of blood that a woman typically sees when having her normal menstrual period. Early pregnancy bleeding can vary in amounts from slight spotting to vaginal bleeding consistent with a menstrual cycle.Another reason for bleeding during pregnancy is something called implantation bleeding. This bleeding usually takes place when the embryo is attaching to the wall of the uterus. This type of bleeding is ordinarily seen five days after conception, so it is easy to see why a woman would confuse this bleeding with her menstrual cycle and there may be some difficulty in determining when the last menstrual period was. Implantation bleeding is not all that common and usually is not more than a slight spotting or a pinkish red colored mucus, but occasionally there is more bleeding associated with it.Getting pregnant while on the pill is often associated with bleeding during pregnancy that can be confused with a menstrual cycle. Many women who are on the pill have several bleeding episodes before they realize that something is not quite right. In cases like this a woman usually cannot accurately tell her doctor when her last real menstrual cycle was and an ultrasound is required to provide the mother and the doctor with an estimated due date.There are many reasons, as stated above, that a woman can experience vaginal bleeding while pregnant but it is impossible to have a true period and remain pregnant at the same time. The problem is that much of the bleeding that women experience coincides with the same time that they usually see their menstrual cycle each month, so they naturally assume that it is their period. Luckily, the majority of women do not experience this type of bleeding.http://www.thelaboroflove.com/articles/can-you-have-your-menstrual-period-while-pregnant/To: preg w/#1The second answer…I would just like to say to you that you had a great link to a great “rant” which would have cleared up a lot of questions on here that i am constantly seeing also. It was ridiculous to have it deleted. Just goes to show how many ppl don’t care about the simple truth. They’d rather go their own way. You’re awesome!
- A: Amen and thank you! While it is RARE, someone can have a period – a full period, not just spotting, and still be pregnant. A period is never a way to judge if you are pregnant.Again – uncommon, but not impossible.
- Could I be pregnant? What is going on?
- Q: Today should be the last day of my period, problem is i only bled for the first two days and it was very light. I didn’t bleed after that at all. I am very tired and moody but that could because my period but I also know you can spot or bleed while pregnant. Do you think I should take a test or wait awhile? Is it to soon to tell?
- A: Sounds strange. When a woman is pregnant, her nipples turn a brownish color. The way you described your period, it sounds like implantation bleeding. You can look it up. The tiredness and moodyness are symptoms of both pregnancy and period (as well as breast tenderness). I’d wait a while, grab a few pregnancy tests, and good luck. Hope this helped.
- Can a vaginal ultrasound make you bleed ?
- Q: I am 6wks 2days preggo, and started spotting, I went to my doc and he preformed a vaginal ultrasound. We saw the baby’s heartbeat, and he said everything look fine, and that spotting/bleeding while pregnant is very common. he didnt seem worried about it at all. I was just spotting before the ultrasound, but when I got home I started to bleed a little. Its almost been 24 hours and the bleeding has pretty much subsided. I was wondering if the vaginal ultrasound could be the reason why I started to bleed. I am very scared that I am having another miscarriage, but I called the doc and he inssists that everything is fine. Has anyone else had a vaginal ultrasound while pregnant and started to bleed a little afterward ?? I not talking a lot of blood, but some is too much for me. Thanks for your replies
- A: Yes. I also had to have a vaginal u/s because I was spotting and they wanted to make sure everyting was ok. She told me the spotting could be from the bottom of cervix, since it doesn’t realize yet that it’s pregnant and it may shed the lining at the bottom. Also when the u/s was over she said I may see some more bleeding, if they happen to bump something…
