I am five and a half weeks pregnant, and I experienced some spotting after intercourse. Is this normal?

  I am five and a half weeks pregnant, and I experienced some spotting after intercourse. Is this normal?

Even in early pregnancy, your cervix becomes softer and more liable to bleed a little, particularly after intercourse. So as long as it was only a little spotting (droplets of blood, less than a nosebleed), with no pain or fresh (bright red) bleeding this is probably OK. But you should mention it to your doctor, as it is important to check that your cervical smear tests (pap smears) are up to date and normal. Fresh red bleeding in pregnancy or heavy bleeding, especially if occurring together with abdominal/pelvic pain, should be investigated; it is of course very natural to be worried about miscarriage at this stage of pregnancy.
