What causes vaginal bleeding during pregnancy?

The women in my family for at least three or four generations (plus in laws) have had issues with bleeding during pregnancy. I m worried that I might be one to two months pregnant. I m getting a pregnancy test asap, but I didn t think I was pregnanct until I started recently showing the signs of an early pregnancy. The problem is, I m still bleeding. Even more of a problem, the blood has an orange-ish tent to it. What s going on if I m pregnant? If I m not? (BTW- I haven t been to an OGBYN or whatever it s called and I m 18. I don t like doctors.)

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) Mild bleeding or spotting may be normal in early weeks of pregnancy. However, we need to rule out miscarriage in this context.

2) I suggest her to undergo one Trans Vaginal Ultrasound scan (TVS) and blood test for beta-hCG to check nature, viability and prognosis of the current pregnancy.

3) You should avoid heavy work, take complete bed rest, micronised progesterone to be taken, maintain genital hygiene and consult with your OBGYN for periodic check up with test reports.

Hope, I have answered your query. Good luck and take care.
