Bleeding after pelvic exam is that normal? BabyDee78 Due June 27 (boy); 3 kids; Texas 358 posts

I was so upset and paranoid. I had my first exam yesterday since I found out I was pregnant. The exam I got a lot of blood drawn and I had a pelvic exam.
Well around 1:00 am this morning I went to the bathroom and when I went I saw blood in the urine. Then early this morning before class it was brownish when I went to the bathroom. I was curious if this was normal. I want my baby to be alright. 1st trimesters are nerve wrecking. You know?:shock:

I have never had this happen to me, but I have heard that it is indeed normal :)

Cool. I just want everything to be okay. Calling the nurse now so they can know.

It is absolutely normal. I had a ton of spotting after every pelvic exam while I was pregnant. Your cervix has a ton of little blood vessels and it is extra sensitive because more blood goes to that whole area during pregnancy. It can be irritated and the vessels that are close to the surface can rupture more easily. Completely normal, but it isn't a bad idea to let the nurse or doctor know it's happening. It should last up to 48 hours. I've never had it last longer than that.

I started bleeding again and it was enough to soak up my pantyliner. I'm starting to freak out now. I have to go to the dr office tomorrow. I'm remaining positive, but this is scary as hell.

I just experienced the same thing. I am 5 weeks today and had my first pelvic exam. Right after, i notice a bit of brownish red mixed with the lubricant when i cleaned self up to dress. Still same only when i wipe. i was so scarred. Doctor says its normal but i cant shake the feeling. I just wish it would go away. I had no bleeding at all before the exam

Glad I ran across these posts. I am 6 weeks pregnant and just had my first exam. When I came home I had some brownish bleeding and totally freaked out. I called the nurse who also said it was fine but I am still freaked out. Glad to see that others have had the same experience. I hope the spotting goes away soon!

I just had my first pelvic exam today, approx 5 weeks pregnant. Just used the bathroom and noticed very pales brownish discharge only when I wiped. I stared to get nervous and thought I was starting my cycle. Makes me happy to know that this is normal !
