Is it normal to bleed in the fifth week of pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 09/22/2017

Brown spotting or light bleeding in the fifth week of pregnancy can mean many things. Embryo implantation symptoms usually occur when four weeks pregnant. Therefore, further bleeding could mean that there is a risk of miscarriage. If there is heavy bleeding, like in menstruation, the expected mother may have suffered a biochemical pregnancy.

There are other reasons that cause bleeding during pregnancy, such as uterine hematomas.
