Patient :About 3 days ago it was confirmed by a doctor that I'm a little over 4 weeks pregnant, I was spotting before I went to the doctor and am still spotting. It's been about a week in total. I told the doctor about it but she said don't worry about it. I'm just getting worried because I'm having cramping too. What do you think?
Spotting in early pregnancy, usually between 4th-5th gestational weeks is quiet normal. It occurs due to implantation of fetus into uterus. It is associated with cramp like pains too. So don't worry, as it is a normal event. Be cautious if heavy bleeding occurs for more than 1 week and consult your gynecologist at the earliest.
