Bleeding Concerns

CAL73 - October 16

I was 2 weeks late with my period, took 3 at home pregnancy tests which all came back positive. I called and made an apt. with my doctor for next month. This weekend it seems like I started my period. I am confused and scared. I wanted to know if it is okay to where a tampon during the bleeding until I can get in to see my doctor/

you should call your doctor if any bleeding is happening.

in addition to calling your doctor right away, if you are having heavy bleeding, then you need to go to the ER and be checked out, i would also advise you to NOT wear a tampon to eliminate the possibility of infection, i know that when i miscarried the doctors told me NOT to wear a tampon, only pad, good luck to you, and i hope that you go to the doctor soon!

Bleeding during pregnancy can be common for some women. I am 12 weeks and had bleeding last week. I did go to the hopsital and everything is ok. I only bled a small amount. If you are soaking a pad every hour, or are bleeding quite heavy and it is bright red you should go. Good luck.
