Yeah that's common. I had spotting after the doctor sc___ped inside. It should go away. Also sometimes when you can spot too after getting a v____al ultrasound. How far along are u? Take care.

I've heard that it's completely normal!!!!

i am 8 weeks tomorrow. i wasn't too concerned, it looked like really old blood too. i had both a pap and a v____al u/s. the hb was at 171bpm! so i am not very worried. how far along are you?

Absolutely normal. Your cervix is very sensitive. There are lots of little blood vessels in there, so when the doctors poke and prod around there it will have a bit of a reaction. If you start spotting brown after the initial spotting, thats normal too!

Hi, incase anyone reads this again... how long is too long for the spotting to last after the pap was done? i had some today (thursday) and my pap was on monday.... thank you!

It depends on the color of the blood. Bright red pink blood means something is activally bleeding, brown blood is old blood. if it was brown it is probably the pap. But you can spot from s_x, lifting, exercise. Just a little faint spotting like that is ok becuase it is the irritation of your cervix. My OB told me when i see that to stop exercising and lifting etc for a few days. I would run it by your OB just to be on the safe side.
