    Can't find anything on Doctor Google or my pregnancy books, so I will ask here: after a pelvic exam (checked for dilation and effacement, of which I'm 2cm and 75%) my OB said I might bleed a little after. That was at 3:30. It's 9:00 here and I just went pee and had my heavy mucous discharge with red blood. Is it expected to bleed that far later?

    I was told up to 12 hours after, your cervix is really sensitive and they can be pretty invasive with checks

    As long as it's not heavy bleeding like you need a pad it's okay

    I always bleed after. Usually all the way into the evening and even into the next morning with my first exam.
