spotting after sex

(7 Posts)

The last few times after having sex I've had a bit of spotting a couple hours later. There's no pain at all & baby is very active. I'm 26 wks. Should I be worried? Would you refrain from sex or is it quite normal?

Best bet is speak to your midwife about it before you have sex again, and see what she says. I think its not uncommon to spot after sex but if its happening every time its best get yourself checked to be on the safe side. Congrats on you LO! x

I'm only 6 weeks gone and I've told hubby that there will be no sex for a wile. I'm just too scared! �� at 26 weeks though, I'm sure its fine ��

Yes, talk to your mw, but it's not uncommon and not necessarily anything to worry about.

Could be cervical erosion which is common during pregnancy, get it checked by a midwife though so you can have your mind put at ease about everything. Good luck

I have erosion and have had to have it cauterised twice in the past. I am now 6+3 and this week had bleeding with intercourse. It is definitely the erosion and not anything else in my case (I know as I have had it on and off for years) it was all gone after a few hours. No pain and no other bleeding before or after

I haven't had it but my midwife said I might and that it was totally normal as the cervix is more sensitive. I wouldn't worry about it at all. You could mention it for reassurance next time you see your midwife. It will go away once the baby arrives.
