Lexington Women's Health

I'm pregnant and bleeding. What should I do?

What do I do if I am pregnant and having vaginal bleeding? Vaginal bleeding is never normal during pregnancy and needs to be evaluated.

If you are in your first trimester and the bleeding is light and painless (no cramping) call during our business hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm Mon-Fri, and ask to be seen that day.

If you are past your first trimester go immediately to Baptist Health Lexington's Labor and Delivery to be evaluated. If the bleeding is heavy, or accompanied by fever or pain, go to the nearest emergency facility immediately. You do not need to call us to let us know you are going. The nurses will contact us if necessary.
