Our expert says:
One does sometimes get a slight bleed early in pregnancy due to many different factors including implantation bleeding, infection, cervical irritation, ectopic pregnancy or a threatened miscarriage.
Many women who have this light bleeding go on to have normal pregnancies and healthy babies. If it becomes heavier bleeding it may indicate a possible miscarriage. Unfortunately there is no way to predict whether or not vaginal bleeding will progress to miscarriage.
If you do experience bleeding that continues to get heavier, with painful cramping, back pain or stabbing pains, please contact your doctor immediately
