Blood loss in early pregnancy

Losing a little blood during the first few weeks of pregnancy is not uncommon, but what should you do?

  • First of all, make an appointment with your doctor. It may be nothing, but we prefer to be sure.
  • One of the most common causes is the attachment of the egg to the lining of the uterus, which is often thought to be the return of the period.
  • Your vagina and cervix are a little more irritable than usual. This is normal.
  • Hormones can cause bleeding.
  • More rarely, the expulsion of a twin egg.

Unfortunately, in some cases, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy can occur, which is why it is essential to seek medical attention in all cases!
