bleeding after my internal exam — The Bump
3rd Trimester

bleeding after my internal exam

Today was my 38 week checkup. My doctor did an internal exam and ever since I left the office, I've been bleeding. At first it was like i had my period, but it changed to light bleeding after a few hours. Is that normal after an exam?

  • Yes! I had the same thing with my first baby. I would say as long as it is getting lighter and not heavier you are going to be okay...I would just be cautious. Take it easy and have a lower threshold to go into labor and delivery if you feel contractions or notice less fetal movement. I think I remember my bleeding only lasting for about 3-5 hours...and I had some cramping. But baby was good and healthy and it all went away. Hoping the same for you!
  • I've not had it happen but they tell me every time (previous two kids) that it's normal. Surprised they didn't bring up to you.

  • Yep- I always had bleeding when my doctor checked me in those final weeks.
