Hey I'm only 5 weeks and I had sexual intercourse and after the act was finished I started bleeding it was more than spotting but less than a period it last half hour. It wasn't painful or anything. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it normal? The doctor said not to worry. But I can't help worrying.
Sex can irritate the cervix when you're pregnant and cause you to bleed or spot. It isn't caused for alarm as long as it stops and you aren't cramping badly or anything. Pregnancy hormones make your cervix become engorged with blood and super sensitive and sex can cause it to tear a little.
