Heavy Bleeding After Positive Pregnancy Test
If you are pregnant, congratulations! If you are not pregnant, you may be wondering what is happening if you are experiencing some vaginal bleeding. Bleeding after a positive pregnancy test can be caused by a number of things, some of which are more serious than others.
The most common cause of bleeding after a positive pregnancy test is a miscarriage. A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks. About 15-20% of pregnancies end in a miscarriage. If you are experiencing bleeding, it is important to contact your doctor to determine if you are having a miscarriage.
Other causes of bleeding after a positive pregnancy test include ectopic pregnancy, implantation bleeding, and early labor. An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside of the uterus. About 2% of pregnancies are ectopic. Implantation bleeding occurs when the embryo attaches to the uterine wall. It is common to experience light spotting or bleeding for a few days after implantation. Early labor can cause light spotting or bleeding.
If you are experiencing bleeding after a positive pregnancy test, it is important to contact your doctor. Bleeding can be a sign of a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or early labor. Your doctor can determine the cause of your bleeding and provide you with the appropriate treatment.
