#HLWDK Daily Health Tips: Bleeding At Three Months

Good morning, DOCTOR. I am 3 months pregnant and last night I started bleeding. I don’t know what to do. Is it normal to bleed at this stage of pregnancy or am I losing my child?

A: Bleeding during pregnancy can be worrying whether it’s a little or a lot. However, it may not necessarily be the sign of a problem. Bleeding can occur in early pregnancy, close to or about the same time as the menstruation would and thus be mistaken for a period. This bleeding could be due to implantation as the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterus (womb). Other causes of bleeding in early pregnancy include ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage and infections.

Bleeding in pregnancy may not necessarily be an emergency but because there are other causes of these episodes of bleeding, which are potentially life threatening like ectopic pregnancy, bleeding in pregnancy should always be checked out in the hospital. Better safe than sorry 😀

All the best!
