Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.
Luckily, there is no danger with intercourse during pregnancy at 39 weeks (assuming that your doctor knows that your placenta is well away from the cervix
). The cervix during pregnancy is also very prone to bleeding. This can occur with thinning and dilation of the cervix (blood show), with exams, and with intercourse. As the blood sits and makes its way out, it often appears as a brownish blood-tinged discharge.
Anytime a patient calls with bleeding during pregnancy
, it should be evaluated unless it can clearly be attributed to some normal activity or exam. Certainly if it has not resolved after a period of 12-24 hours then you need to call your doctor. The babies activity should also remain predictable.
