So DH and I dtd last night then again this afternoon, and well we got a little into things! Then we went out for a date and had time to kill before our movie started, so went to sears to look at a mower. I had to potty while there and my pantyliner had bright red blood on it. So I rushed home to put on a pad and get my temporary medicaid papers. When I got home and wiped again seemed like there was less blood. So I decided we would go on to our movie(we already had the tickets!). We just got home from the movie and when I pottied this time and wiped it was blood colored cm. I have had no cramps. Should I go to the ER or just wait and see; if I start bleeding more or if I start cramping. THanks in advance ladies!!
ETA: My pad has notihng on it, the intial blood was about 4 hours ago now. Have had no cramps, and current plan is to just wait and see what happens!

Personally, I would have went and had it checked. Sometimes it does not mean that you are having a miscarriage just that you need to be watched a little more , thats what they tried to tell me when I was bleeding on my 1st miscarriage but that was different, I didnt stop bleeding and I knew my hcg level was to low and it was a miscarriage... good thing for u, it stoped so i doubt it was a m/c....but I would certainly get it checked out...but JMO!
It could also just be spotting from your cervix. Everything is real sensitive down there right now, and if you dtd twice, it could just be irritation. But, go get it checked out of course! Peace of mind and sanity is so much better than worrying about it!
It has now completely stopped, and I never had any cramps or any blood on the pad, just a little bit when I would wipe. So I'm going to take things easy this weekend and stay away from dtd for a few days or weeks!!! LOL, thanks ladies. And yes peace of mind is an awesome thing, but when syptoms are still kicking my butt, I have a feeling all is well. And I have my first prenatal appt. in a week!!!!
When I was pregnant I would bleed some after DTD. My doc said it's because your cervix is softer and it bleeds easily during pregnancy. You might want to ask your OB if he wants a call if you bleed after DTD, but as long as there's no cramping and it's not alot, you are probably just fine.
. Thanks .hOOdihoo.this. for another beautiful siggy!
This happened to me at 7/8 weeks, we were celebrating DH birthday and dtd and the next morning I was spotting red. I went to the ER and the Dr said it was common between 6-10 weeks to spot after DTD due to increased hormones. I was told to wait 2 weeks before dtd again, and that the spotting may last 48 hours. She also said not to worry or go back again unless the spotting was with pain/discomfort or as heavy as a period. I hope this is your case and that its now all stopped.
Hows it going?
I know its hard, but TRY not to worry. I am sure everything is fine. Reg flags is doubled-over pain/cramps with lots of bleeding.
Like others have said, DTD can irritate your cervix because of the increase in blood flow down there and the sensitivity. I even had some blood on the pap equipment after they gave me a pap smear.
