Spotting again...

Has anyone experienced bleeding before, after they DTD? We DTD yesterday morning and last night I had some (TMI) brown mucousey discharge, and have spotted some during the night. I'm just hoping that it doesn't turn into full blown bleeding, I don't want a repeat of last Sunday. Would it be strange to spot hours afterwards? If I am going to spot and bleed, I wish I would do it during the week, so I could at least call my doctor!

Leah, it's possible! Happened to me and I've had several episodes of spotting from the uterus being super sensitive as well. I say if it's not lots of red bleeding with cramps that you're ok.

Yeah it's normal. Any time I've had spotting they've told me to be on "pelvic rest" for a few weeks. I think mostly b/c they know it will cause more spotting and freak the woman out. I don't think dtd can actually hurt anything. But we're obstaining until the second tri I think. I know it will make me spot/bleed and I dont' want to deal with it.

Reason #1 we don't DTD in the first trimester after we find out I am pregnant.

So I wish I had read this first. Same here! I am going to call the doctor tomorrow, but let me know if you find anything out and I'll do the same.

I did last time, I think...trying to remember. It was totally normal, just an irritated cervix or something like that. Most likely nothing to worry about!

If you can spot after a pelvic exam, it sure makes since you would spot after dtd. (((Hugs))) it would scare me too.

So sorry about the spotting!! Spotting just plain sucks, even if you know there are so many "non harmful" things that can cause it! I forget, have you had an ultrasound yet? I had tons of bleeding and spotting in the beginning with this one, but once I got that ultrasound and saw a heartbeat it did help relax me.

Yes I had one before the bleeding started, and I have had two since. It does help to see that baby is doing good, it still makes me worry little though.
