Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

that is fairly normal

Dr Owen :

As long as you are not having HEAVY continuous bright red bleeding

Dr Owen :

Now since you are 8 weeks pregnant - you SHOULD get an ultrasound done to check the fetus for a heart beat and for the size of the fetus PRIOR to 12 weeks

Dr Owen :

and also you should be on a prenatal vitamin or the equivalent of a Prenatal vitamin

Dr Owen :

and since this is JUST on the toilet paper this is NOTHING to really be worried about

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

thank you

Customer:

when should it stop happening? I also have few to none pregnancy symptoms?

Dr Owen :

this can go on usually for another week

Dr Owen :

and it is common to not have symptoms - ONLY 10% of women have symptoms - so that is okay

Customer:

ok thank you, ***** ***** been on prenatal vitamin since i concieved. Have many women experienced this before and gone on to having healthy pregnancies? I have a scan on monday to be safe

Dr Owen :

let's just say I have taken care of thousands of women - and many women have this same thing as you and they go on to have NORMAL pregnancies and babies

Dr Owen :

so you really do not need to worry.

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
