Pregnancy - vaginal bleeding; Maternal blood loss
Avoid sexual intercourse until you know the cause of the bleeding. Drink only fluids if the bleeding and cramping are severe.
If a miscarriage occurs, expect a small amount of vaginal bleeding for up to 10 days after. Avoid using tampons for bleeding during pregnancy and for 2 to 4 weeks after miscarriage.
Medication is usually not necessary -- don't take any medication without talking to your doctor.
