What causes vaginal discharge during pregnancy?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here.I am 12 weeks pregnant and have noticed my discharge tinted a little bit pink 4 days ago (saturday) then sunday I was fine, and monday again a little pink but nothing i thought i should worry about then this morning I went pee and went to wipe and noticed on my tissue a teeny tiny blood clot the size of a very very small beauty mark, then wiped again and blood was on my tissue, the amount of 1/4 a teaspoon altogether. Is this normal? This is my 3rd pregnancy. This 1st, unfortunately I had to have an abortion, the second is now my beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter and now this one. I had all my blood work back and my doctor said all is normal and good. I never had any spotting when i was pregnant before...

Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion you might need ultrasound to know the status of pregnancy.There are various causes of bleeding like hormonal abnormalities progesterone insufficiency,thyroid abnormalities,bleeding from cervix,any excess physical strain,any abnormal pregnancy etc.Iam not diagnosing anything but giving you the information.Consider getting ultrasound and thyroid profile done to rule out some of the above abnormalities.But nothing to worry as such.But it's better to have a consultation with your doctor.Avoid physical strain,intercourse.Take rest.
Best regards...Dr.Srilatha
