Bleeding after intercourse, pregnant


I am 12- 14 weeks pregnant with my fourth baby. Everytime after intercourse ( 1-2* a week) I experience bleeding. Yesterday during intercourse it felt a bit uncomfortbale and there was quite a bit of blood. My whole vagina was also cramping for a while thereafter. It has stopped now. I had an ultrasound 2 weeks ago and everything is also fine with the baby. What could be wrong as I never experienced bleeding in pregnancy b4.

It may be that there is a raw area on the cervix , which is not serious, but it could also be that there is a pregnancy problem such as a low lying placenta. Avoid intercourse till you have seen your doctor again.

I know that spotting after intercourse during pregnancy is normal. Not sure about the heavy bleeding.

stop the act, if you are bleeding then you cant have sex, go to your gynae and have yourself checked again,
