Hi! Thanks for your query on the forum and we will do our best to assist you!

It is common for some women to bleed on and off during the first 3 months. However, any spotting or bleeding in first trimester should never be ignored. It can be due to simple causes such as cervicitis (infection/inflammation of cervix), vaginitis (infection/inflammation of vagina), or it can also be due to a part of uterine lining sloughing or due to threatened abortion.

Sometimes it happens without a cause. It can also be due to hormonal imbalance. You must immediately consult a gynecologist and get a sonogram to visualize the baby. If the placenta and baby are fine and there is no bleeding from placenta, then this could just be some old blood. Also measure the blood HCG levels 48 hours apart to see if they are rising or not.

Hope this helps! Take care!
