brown spotting after pap and internal ultrasound?

I'm thinking this is normal but my pgal brain has never freaking out a little. We had our first appointment yesterday. Everything looked perfect the doctor said. We saw the heartbeat and it was beating at 148. They had to do the internal ultrasound to get a more accurate measurement since it's so soon after my miscarriage. I'm measuring 7 weeks 2 days. They also did the pap and internal exam. I had no spotting until last night. A little brown spotting. Then this morning after I have been up for a few hours I just noticed some light pink spotting. Is this normal! I called and left a message for my doctor waiting on a call back. TIA!

Re: brown spotting after pap and internal ultrasound?

  • When I had the pap, the PA told me that spotting for the first 4 hours after the exam was normal.  I had brown spotting until the next morning (more than 4 hours).  Your cervix is very sensitive right now and a pap is rough to it, especially if you also had an internal u/s.  FX crossed that you just have a sensitive cervix that is annoyed about being roughed up!

  • I hope the doctor calls back soon to put your mind at ease.  For what it's worth I ALWAYS spot after pap smears, pregnant or not.  COngratulations on the beautiful heartbeat!

  • I have not had a pap with this pregnancy but I did have some brown spotting after my trans-vaginal u/s.  They had me come in to check on the baby and everything was fine. My OBGYN said it was likely just old blood that came out as a result of the wand moving around.

    I hope your Doctor gets back to you soon!

  • Yep, pap can do it, brown is old blood, probably from the pap.... :-)

  • Sounds like you've gotten some great advice so I'll just offer ((hugs)) because it sucks seeing spotting no matter what the cause is.

    Thanks everyone for the support! The doctor said it's completely normal and I should only worry if I see red blood and have cramping. I'm feeling better now! :)
