    urgent question about spotting, plz help

    I am 8w1d today. I had my first OB appt yesterday and she did the pap/exam that she does for prenatal care. I had had some pink spotting on occasion and she found the source of the spotting, I guess 2 spots on the cervix, which she medicated and said that the med would cause some gray spotting. Well, I had that yesterday.

    I've wiped 3x in the last hr and there is red. I've not had this at all with this pregnancy, and I m/c with my first at 7 weeks.

    Can the pap cause this spotting? I am not cramping like I did w/ m/c. (yet) I am so scared to see bright red blood. Granted, there's not much, but it is there on the toilet paper.

    Robin,

    Yes, a pap can cause some spotting. Any type of internal exam or even sex can be the cause of spotting during pg. Is it only when you wipe? As long as you are not bleeding alot, you should be fine. I spotted brown, pink and even red with 2 of my pg's. Call your OB to get more reassurance if necessary. I am sure they will say the same thing. Hang in there and try not to worry!

    Hi, Robin!

    I spotted at 12 weeks. Freeked me out! We actually ended up doing a u/s to check the baby. He/she was doing great! We were told unless it's heavy bleeding and cramping, don't worry about it. Yeah, right!

    My bleeding also happened after a vaginal exam. I guess everything is really sensitive down there. Needless to say we've been without sex for 13 weeks now. Doctor's orders.

    We were also told that it would probably happen again sometime during pregnancy.
    So, don't worry!

    A pap can definately cause some spotting. I told my dr that I would not agree to the pap during my first prenatal appt last week purely for the reason of not giving myself any worry.
