At the beginning of pregnancy it is possible to have small losses of blood without them being related to any problem. However, the bleeding may be due to an ectopic pregnancy or a threatened abortion by an intrauterine hematoma. Therefore, it is advisable to see a doctor in case of blood loss during the sixth week of pregnancy.
