I have a really embarrassing question to ask but needs must.... So here it goes.... Whenever me and my partner have any kind of penetrative intercourse, I bleed afterwards and I was just wondering if this was normal? I don't bleed a lot it's only usually spotting and only lasts for an hour or so... I have been to the hospital once before about bleeding and they reasured me that within a first pregnancy spotting is fairly common, although I was unsure about it being after any kind of intercourse? Should we stop? Or should I consult my midwife? Thanks Nik. Sorry I'm a little embarrassed about it.
