Lots of newly pregnant women experience minor blood loss early in their pregnancy, so you may notice some spotting in your underpants. This might have several causes – so you should call your doctor or seek medical advice any time that bleeding occurs.
Wearing a product like Always daily pantyliners can help protect your underpants and keep you feeling fresh. Some expectant mothers begin wearing pantyliners every day.
For some women, spotting happens more than once during pregnancy. Spotting can also occur very early in the pregnancy, as the egg implants into the wall of the uterus. In other instances, an irritated cervix can result in minor bleeding, particularly after intercourse.
Any bleeding in pregnancy should be reported to your gynaecologist, doctor or midwife, especially in the later stages of your pregnancy, as it might indicate problems with the placenta which need to be addressed.
