Pregnancy bleeding can occur for many different reasons, some of which are not well understood.
What is Period?
Woman’s body prepare a blood cover over the uterus every month where an egg an egg can be fertilized. It is the preparation of the body for getting pregnant. If you don’t conceive, that thick blood cover is released away in the form of period bleeding.
Implantation bleeding occurs when the first embryo implants into the lining of the uterus, which is full of blood. This occurs about five or six days after conception and is often around the same time that a normal period is expected. However, this type of bleeding is usually much lighter than a normal period and lasts only a day or two.
Many women experience bleeding normally in early pregnancy which can be very mild and may even look like a regular period. Usually called early pregnancy bleeding, this is due to many hormonal changes happening in the body of the woman and not a sign of a problem.
Sometimes women who conceive while using birth control pills also experience irregular bleeding during pregnancy. It can take weeks or even months for these women to realize that she is pregnant.

Many a times reason for bleeding are not known, as is the case for many women who experience bleeding early and go on to have normal healthy pregnancies.
