Bleeding During Pregnancy Causes

Bleeding during pregnancy may not be a problem in the first few weeks of pregnancy but if bleeding happens in the second or third trimester, it can indicate a serious problem. If a woman suffers from bleeding during pregnancy, she should be careful and immediately meet a medical practitioner and get examined.

Causes of bleeding during various pregnancy trimesters

First Trimester

In the first trimester, the fetus is implanted and bleeding can happen in any of the following conditions.

2. Ectopic pregnancies: If the fetus is implanted improperly outside the fallopian tube, it can cause miscarriage. Other symptoms are cramps in the lower abdomen and bleeding. It happens in case, the woman's fallopian tube was infected or if she previously had an ectopic pregnancy.

3. Molar pregnancy: Early bleeding can occur during molar pregnancy, as abnormal tissues grows inside the uterus, which can be shaped in the form of grapes like structure inside the uterus and it can be seen in an ultrasound.
