Intercourse is preferably avoided in the early months (1-3) and also in the later months(6-9) of pregnancy
. It can be allowed during the mid-trimester (4-6) months. Also precaution should be taken to avoid stress
on the abdomen and uterus
. If blood is spotted during pregnancy at any time, it is best to see the doctor immediately, know the reason and take precaution. Condition of the pregnancy should also be checked, whether it is viable (i.e., if the fetus is alive or not) by doing tests needed like a sonogram or hormonal
assay. If everything is normal inspite of bleeding, then absolute bed rest
is advised until situation is under control. In addition hormonal supplementation may be given.
