Bleeding During Pregnancy

Bleeding or spotting during pregnancy can be terrifying, but it is not always a sign of miscarriage. Bleeding during early pregnancy can be due to implantation, ectopic pregnancy, and miscarriage. Light bleeding later on in pregnancy can be due to cervical polyp, placenta previa, placental abruption, and late miscarriage.
