    Default 24 weeks and slight bleeding

    Ok Hi,

    Im new to here and wanted to get a bit of insight. I am 24w and 5d and after sex last night i went to the toilet and there was bright red blood. Bit to much info for you i actually heard a small "plop" and i could see a few small clumps of blood in the toilet. It slowed down over night and then this morning when i pee it has a tinge of red and when i wipe there is bright red blood. Not sure if this is helpful but bub is still moving around and i have had braxtons for the last 4 or 5 days. Can anyone shed some light for me?

    Thanks.

    It can happen after sex while pregnant. Happened to me and everything was fine. If you are worried visit the doc for reassurance.
    I didn't do it again while pregnant lol

    Ring your labour ward to see what they say. I'd imagine they'd want you to come in to check just in case. Bleeding can be normal during s.x, but if you've been having braxton hicks as well.... better to be safe and check it out, I say. If everything is ok, you may feel like it was a waste of time, but if something isn't right and you can fix it early on, you'll be so glad you checked!!

    Hi KatJam,

    I had a pretty big bleed around the same time in my second pregnancy. It was what is called an "edge bleed" which is when the baby is laying partially or on the placenta and causes a rapture in a small blood vessel, which can cause a bleed. It was nothing to worry about, but I had a scan for reassurance anyway. I would let your GP/midwife know and go from there.
