Slight spotting after contact is a possibility after intercourse during first three months specially so if the placenta is low lying . Take rest and avoid IC till there is no more bleeding for a week atleast and the placental localization has been confirmed as not low lying. Should the scan reveal a low lying placenta , then avoid Ic throughout pregnancy or till a time when the placenta has naturally migrated towards the fundus (top ) of the uterus. Needless to say IC should be gentle to avoid any type of placental separation causing vaginal bleeding and jeopardy to the baby.

during pregnancy there is increased blood supply for the growing uterus and sex during this period might cause small bleeding. it is advised to abstain sex during pregnancy, if not change of position is the alternative.
