Spotting is light bleeding from your vagina. It's similar to a period, but much lighter in flow. The colour of the blood can be anything from red to brown. In the early weeks of pregnancy, a little spotting or bleeding is very common.
Also know, what does it mean when you have light pink discharge?
Pinkish or light colored blood during your period usually just means a light flow. The first cause of pink spotting between menstrual periods is ovulation bleeding. Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovaries. According to the American Pregnancy Association, some women experience light spotting after ovulating.
How long does pink discharge last in early pregnancy?
Your spotting won't be red but brown or black in colour as the blood won't be fresh. It'll be lighter (ie less blood) than a normal period. If the blood turns deep red or becomes heavy, speak to your midwife or GP as soon as possible. The bleeding should only last for one or two days, but every woman is different.
How much spotting is normal during pregnancy?
Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is any discharge of blood from the vagina. It can happen anytime from conception (when the egg is fertilized) to the end of pregnancy. Light bleeding, or spotting, during pregnancy is common, especially during the first trimester. Usually, this is no cause for alarm.
