Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.Light spotting often occurs after the vaginal exam, due to the sensitivity of the cervix during pregnancy, but it's not likely that it would be able to inadvertently cause a miscarriage. Vice vers can occur.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
