Last Update: 03/09/2022

Spotting is very common in the first trimester of pregnancy. Any spotting in the first trimester is considered a threat of miscarriage.

Spotting can be due to different causes. The most important thing to do is to see your gynecologist to find out the origin of the spotting. Possible causes include hematoma, low insertion placenta, polyp in the cervix, etc.
