"Bleeding occurs in 20% of normal pregnancies at the beginning",
indicates obstetrician Dr Frydman.

at the time when you would usually have your period, it could also be a sign of complications such as ectopic pregnancy
, or even a miscarriage
. Check with your doctor. And if bleeding persists
, see your doctor as soon as possible.
