What are some causes of spotting and cramping in early pregnancy when I have normal HCG and progesterone levels?


Answer by  tamarawilhite (17883)

This is not normal in pregnancy. Cramping and spotting can be early signs of a miscarriage. Please see your obstetrician or gynecologist to determine what is wrong. The HCG and progesterone levels will be normal unless the baby is lost, at which point, they would change dramatically. See a doctor.

depending on how many weeks you are some spotting and cramping is normal. your body is adjusting itself. In my case it was normal around 6-8 weeks. you should however discuss your symptoms with a doctor just to be safe. my doctor told me my body was adjusting my hormone levels and thickening my uterus for the baby.

There can be two types of bleeding i. e. 'Breakthrough and 'Implantation bleeding. Breakthrough bleeding can be caused due to the hormones which causes menstrual cycle when your period is due. Implantation bleeding is caused when the fertilized gets attached itself to the wall of he uterus. If the spotting persists for more than 4-5 days then you need to see the doctor immediately.

Spotting and cramping is normal during early pregnancy as your body is getting use to being pregnant. The cramping is probably stretching and the spotting is probably just implantation happening.

Implantation often causes cramping and light spotting in early pregnancy. Normal HCG levels likely mean that the spotting and cramping are NOT a sign of miscarriage.
