I am about 6 weeks pregnant and spotting.. Females please read below.

I am about 6 weeks pregnant and me and my husband had sex last night and afterwards I started spotting. There's no blood in my urine or panties it's just when I wipe. I was hurting yesterday but I thought I was just over doing it and I sat down and the hurting stopped. What could this be? (I have called and made an appt with my ob I just want some opinions before I go)

Spotting during pregnancy is really quite common .. some women spot the entire time. Just keep going to your regular doctors appointments, and if anything starts to look 'unusual' then go and see him again.

Having sex during a pregnancy is perfectly fine .. and normal. It doesn't 'hurt the baby' .. Good grief .. that fetus is so protected by it's amniotic sack .. THAT have 'regular' sex is certainly not going to hurt it.

Spotting can occur. It doesnt always mean something bad, but it can be a concern. Sometimes it just your body adjusting to the pregnancy. Glad your going to your doctor. Ive had 3 children and had sex during my pregnancy. They baby is well protected. Sex will not hurt the baby. It can cause preterm labor if your in the last few weeks of the pregnancy but you have a ways til then. Hope everything goes ok and Congrats.

Welcome! Your body is going thru a lot of changes right now. The spotting could be a lot of different things. Dont stress its not good for the baby. Your doctor will give you an exam to see the cause. My sister spotted for 3 months before it stopped. Nothing was wrong with the baby. It was something to do with a blood vessel on her uterus. Not sure the details. Her son was born just fine.

My sister told me it could be implantation bleeding, but I never had that with my son.

Every pregnancy is different. All 3 of mine were completely different.
