Patient : Is getting a deep tissue massage during the first trimester harmful to the pregnancy? I did not know that i was pregnant and had a massage on a sunday. i expected to get my period two days before so i put in a tampon. during the massage i started cramping and afterwards noticed blood. i assumed it was my period but saw no new blood in the days following. i took a pregnancy test on tuesday which came out positive. since i was not bleeding before the massage and only started cramping and bleeding during the massage could the massage harmed the formation of the baby?
