I am 5 weeks pregnant and having light pink spotting, no

Customer Question

Hi I am 5 weeks pregnant and having light pink spotting, no bright red blood. I have also had mild intermittent lower abdominal cramping for the past week. I had a chemical pregnancy 5 weeks ago so obviously I am afraid this could be the start of another miscarriage. Could this spotting be normal at 5 weeks? Thanks

Hello,

symptoms like this can be due to the hormonal change at the beginning of pregnancy and so don´t have to lead to miscarriage. Physical conservation is important, then just wait and see, as long as discomfort don´t get worse, there´s no serious reason to worry.

Hope that everything will turn out fine, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
