I’m 8w4d pregnant. Last night DH and I had sex and afterwards I went to the bathroom and when I wiped there was some pink spotting. There were only a few drops but considering I’ve already had one MC, any sign of blood freaks me out. I got up to pee 3 times during the night and each time I got up I was so scared I’d see more blood but there was nothing and I haven’t had any bleeding since.
I guess I’m just looking for reassurance from anyone else who has had this happen and went on to have a successful pregnancy.

This happened to me at right around the same time. I was about 9 weeks. I’d call dr. anyway though just to be sure. I always do When something new happens.

Well I’m only 5 weeks along with my first, so I can’t help with that…
But seriously I get light pink spotting almost EVERY time after I have sex. Been that way for years. DH is 6’7 and lets just say he matches down there as well. When we were using condomns we had to get special sized condomns were he measured and everything- because magniums were too small!
So if your DH is large in general its normal to bleed a little after (there are actually forums for men that are larger than normal- those were really helpful when we first started)
Or if it was kind of rough / high friction that is also normal to bleed a little after.
Sorry if this was TMI!

I’d check with the doctor, just in case. It’s probably nothing, but if it ends up being something (i.e. a UTI), you’ll want to get it taken care of immediately.

It happened to me in the beginning as well. Go see your doctor. Mine sent us for an ultrasound to check that everything was alright. It was, but it could have been more complicated and it’s better just to check…
She also banned intercourse for 3 weeks…

This is totally normal. It happened to my DH and I only about 5.5 weeks into the pregnancy (I’m 12 weeks now, and doing just fine!), and we were freaked out. My midwife reassured us it was totally normal and that any blood immediately following or within 24 hours of intercourse is just fine provided it’s light (mine was immediately after sex and while wiping after using the bathroom, then it stopped) and accompanied by no cramping. She also said we didn’t need to stop having sex.
She explained that the cervix becomes more engorged than normal with blood during pregnancy and that even the slightest friction up there while DTD can cause some women to have slight bleeding. For us (tmi) it was during a rougher session, and we’ve been careful not to be as rough since and have had no other incidents.
I hope all turns out okay. 🙂

I would talk to your doctor. This started happening to me at the beginning and it turns out I had placenta previa (placenta covers the cervix). Later, my placenta moved away from my placenta but I continued to have bleeding. I think it is best just to talk to your doctor. It could be completely nothing!! Good luck!!

Completely normal but check with your dr. We had spotting around the 4 week mark and they had us come in for an ultrasound to see how things were looking. I’m only 10 weeks now but the dr keeps reminding us that spotting after sex or a bm is completely ok. You don’t want to see dark red spotting.

I spotted as well. My dr told me the blood was coming from my cervix so if we were to BD I would bleed. Call your dr to make yourself relax 🙂 He told me as long as the blood isn’t period-like and I’m not cramping then I was ok. Good luck!

That happened to me around 9 weeks also. I had an ultrasound. Baby was fine. Could be nothing. First things first, don’t cause any stress for you that could be harmful to the baby. If it’s spotting, not blood, it could be nothing.

I know how scary any bleeding is after a mc (or before one for that matter!). My doctor told me to call when I had any concerns to avoid letting my mind run away with the “what-ifs=’s”. I had some spotting after sex at 7 or 8 weeks and he had me come in and do an ultrasound just to be safe, but told me that when bleeding occured after sex in the future that I didn’t need to worry. Do you have cramping (which is TOTALLY normal!)? If you do, I’d call just for the piece of mind.

Thanks for all of your help ladies. It’s been two days now and I haven’t had any more bleeding and no cramping either. I feel very relieved! I guess we’ll just have to take it easy with the bd’ing in the future.
