Where do you live that you don't see a doctor until 20 weeks pregnant?

Bleeding in early pregnancy can be common. But if you are concerned, you should definitely call your doctor/midwife!

im from australia and i can see a doc but not a pregnancy doc from the hospital. also that same day of my incident after a few hours i went to pee and i found a dark brown strecthy sticky ball on my undies the size of a pea like the kind when your ovulating and you find that streching thing but it wasnt clear it was dark im just concerned and wanted to know if it was my egg fallen out or the baby/fetus as im only 5weeks and miscarriage can happen. i also had another question my mother inlaw told my husband to cut down on the sex now that im pregnant that is houdltn be doing it this 3months becuase it harms the baby is this true?
