7 Weeks Along - Why Am I Bleeding?

At 7 weeks, I'm WAY past implantation, haven't had an exam or intercourse and also way past the time when I would have expected my next period, and those are things I know can cause bleeding.

So is it still possible that there's a "normal" reason for me bleeding at this point?

It's light bleeding (off and on), plus pelvic tenderness and lower back ache.


Mommy of 8 and thankful for all our blessings!

Spotting is normal during early pregnancy, and as long as it isn't heavy it doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong. So if it is just off and on everything could still be fine. You might want to get it checked out though.

Re: 7 Weeks Along - Why Am I Bleeding?

Another normal/healthy reason is subchorionic hemorrhage or hematoma. It's where the placenta breaks away from the uterine lining just in one small spot, and this causes bleeding but usually resolves itself. I bled VERY heavily for about 40 min at 12 weeks in my first pregnancy and then went on to have a healthy baby boy. They don't always complete bleeding like that - sometimes it's a slower trickle that looks more like spotting. Your doctor can often see the SCH by ultrasound, but mine didn't bother - he said as long as the bleeding stops we don't worry about it. If you're soaking more than 1 pad per hour (which I absolutely was) you need to call your doctor, but that doesn't necessarily mean bad things.

You are always welcome to call your doctor's office with any questions or concerns though! They're used to it,and it's better to have peace of mind than be up all night worrying
