Bleeding in early pregnancy (less than 3 months) is common.  If the bleeding is light and associated with no pain, then there is no further treatment apart from rest.

Contact the doctor when the surgery is open if:

  • light bleeding continues for several days 

Contact the doctor straight away if

  • the bleeding become heavier than a normal period

  • the bleeding is associated with period type pain

  • the bleeding is associated with a feeling of being unwell.
