Causes of Bleeding

 

  1. Sex: During pregnancy more blood flows to your cervix, so it is not unusual to notice spotting after intercourse. And a cervical polyp can also cause spotting or bleeding after sex with your partner.

2. Pap smear or internal exam: You may have spotting after you have had a Pap smear or internal exam for the same reasons. And greater blood flow to the cervix or a cervical polyp.

3. Miscarriage: During your first 12 weeks of pregnancy, miscarriage is one of the most common problems. And it tends to be one of the biggest concerns with first trimester bleeding. During this time about half of women who bleed in pregnancy eventually miscarry but that does not necessarily mean that if you are bleeding you have lost the baby and especially if you don’t have any other symptoms.

4. Infection: If you have any infection of the cervix, vagina or a sexually transmitted infection can cause bleeding in your first trimester. You may have sexually transmitted infection like

Chlamydia

Gonorrhea

Herpes

5. Cervical Changes: During any pregnancy, extra blood can flows to your cervix. Intercourse or a Pap test can trigger your bleeding. And this type of bleeding is not cause for concern.
