I am 6 weeks pregnant and having dark brown bloody discharge, but blood tests show that my hCG levels are doubling. Should I be worried?

Dark brown spotting, and even bleeding, in early pregnancy is not uncommon. If the pregnancy hormone (hCG) levels are increasing, this means that your pregnancy is most likely to be intra-uterine (in the womb) and developing normally. If, however, you develop abdominal cramps and bright fresh bleeding, or pain worse on one side than the other, or feel faint, then you must see a doctor straight away. An internal (trans-vaginal) scan can differentiate between a healthy pregnancy, threatened miscarriage and ectopic (tubal) pregnancy.
