18w bleeding after having sex

Hi Doctor

I am now about 18 week pregnant and had an ultra sound on 16 week where everything still looked fine.
After having sex for the first time in about 3 months again I had a bit of bleeding. Could I just have hurt myself a little or do I need to be very worried???

You may just have had some trauma from the sex, but you should have it checked out.

Best wishes

Any bleeding in pregnancy is reason for concern, rather go and see your gynae and have another ultrasound done to make sure all is fine.
