Firstly sorry if this is too TMI!!

I'm 6 weeks pregnant with my first pregancy, I haven't had my first antenatal appt yet (that's at 8 weeks) so I don't really have much information to go on, except feedback from other women who've been pregnant before.

My husband and I had sex on Monday, and I noticed a couple of hours later that I had bled a tiny bit. I panicked, so went straight to my doctor, who told me that bleeding after sex in early pregnancy is common, as everything is sitting so low in the uterus. I was so frazzled, I forgot to ask if it was SAFE to have sex at the moment!! DH and I have agreed to stay clear until we know our bean is safe, but does anyone know if we've done any harm already??

I didn't bleed at all yesterday, but I just noticed that I have a small amount of pale pink discharge in my knickers when I went to the bathroom. Is this normal? Should I be worried? My doctor told me that if I get any bleeding, I should go to my early pregancy unit for a scan to make sure everything is ok. I don't think this is anywhere near enough to think it was "real" bleeding, if you know what I mean!!

I'm just anxious that I don't want to neglect anything either!

I have all my other pregancy symptoms - LOTS of spots, big, sore boobs, some MILD tummy cramps. But I also get worn out standing up for a long time - almost with a pulling feeling down there if I'm on my feet for a couple of hours. Is that normal this early on?

Sorry for the thousand questions, but thank you in advance for all your advice!

I can't say if it's normal for your pregnancy, but since I got pregnant I've developed a polyp on my cervix that causes very minor bleeding after sex. Like you said, almost just a little pink discharge.

It's totally safe to have sex during early pregnancy. We had sex the day we found out and I was only 3 weeks. As long as it's light spotting and you're still getting BFP's I would say it's ok. If it gets heavier though I would definitely go in and get it checked out. Always better safe than sorry though so if you're concerned I would go in and have them do a couple sets of betas and just make sure the numbers are rising. Good luck!
