Is it normal to have a small amount of vaginal bleeding during the first month of pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/31/2022

During the first month of pregnancy, there may be occasional spotting that need not be worrisome. In many women, bleeding occurs as a result of implantation. Others have light spotting simply due to embryonic development and the hormonal changes inherent to gestation.

Only if the bleeding is intense and continuous will it be a reason to consult a specialist.
