Bleeding after sex?

Bleeding after sex.
8 weeks pregnant yesterday tmi but me and my boyfriend had sex last night and immediately after I started bleeding light pink blood when wiping and filled a lot of tissue
At 4-5 weeks I had brown spotting when wiping for a week and saw a heartbeat at 7 weeks ish.
However now I feel really worried again that I'm going to miscarry...?
This morning the blood is Brown but just the odd dot when I wipe. Barely noticeable. Have a most likely just irritated my cervix?
Their was a lot of friction to start with.
I have booked a private scan for Saturday

Hey Emma,

Having a little bleeding is a common occurrence after sex. It happened to me in the first trimester - there is increased blood flow in that general area and fragile blood vessels that can get easily damaged. It doesn't necessarily mean the worst and if it was a little frictiony to begin with that is most likely the explanation. Try not to worry too much (and get some lube for next time! Its pretty common for pregnant women to be a little on the dry side!).

Thank you.
I keep convincing my self I can see blood on the toilet paper but I've shown my partner a few times and he can see nothing so probably just my eyes.
Just can't wait to see baby Saturday on the screen hopefully wriggling around.

Hi, as lemon said it is quite common. It happened to me too! All was fine so please don't worry!

Good luck with your scan!

This happened to me too ... I'm now 35 weeks pregnant so don't panic ... If you are really worried contact the early pregnancy unit they may give you another scan but it is very common.

I see you have a scan on Saturday I'm sure everything will be ok x good luck

So panicky and can't stop crying though
Just want Saturday here

Bleeding all stopped about 1pm yesterday so I had about twelve hours of bleeding after sex.
Really up set today as the last two days ( yeSterday and today) I've lost all my symptoms as well.

I bled for a day after sex at six weeks and also at 8 weeks. My midwife said that its common, but to abstain until my 12 weeks scan, I had barely any symptoms at all in the first trimester orher than feeling tired. I now have a ten week old little girl. Fingers crossed for your scan on Saturday, try not to worry too much, I know it's easier said than done
