Is vaginal bleeding and discharge normal during a pregnancy?

Hi, I am almost 6 weeks pregnant and have had a small amount of bright red blood from the vagina, not enough to stain underwear, only visible when I wipe after urinating. Was a very very small amount of tissue in toilet. Now I have an almost clear discharge similar to what I experienced when my period was due. I m really worried, do I need to see a doctor?

Hallow Dear,

No bleeding is normal during pregnancy and indicates some threat to the pregnancy. If at 6 weeks pregnancy you had little bleeding, you have to be on the guard.

1. Please restrict yourself to the bed. Fortunately you do not have any pain. So even if this is threatened abortion, attempts can be made to salvage the pregnancy. May be you will be given Progestational preparations.

2. Report to your Obstetrician for proper evaluation.

3. Ultrasonography may be handy to identify the cause of bleeding and the integrity of the pregnancy.

I hope this helps you.
