21wks preg & bleeding after intercourse
Just a little concerned: I am 21 weeks pregnant and according to my gynea both of us are very healthy. Last week, after my husband and I had intercourse, I experienced a little bleeding. Nothing major, no pain, just a few drops of bright red blood. I am scheduled for another visit to the gynea in 2 weeks time. Should I make an earlier appointment? Should I be concerned about this at all?

The bleeding could be from some trauma to the cervix, but it is still best to call your doctor to be sure.
