Bleeding during pregnancy sends off alarm bells, because it can be a warning sign that you're having a miscarriage. While you're right to be high alert, bleeding doesn't necessarily mean anything's wrong with your pregnancy. As many as 20 to 30 percent of pregnant women experience bleeding, according to the American Pregnancy Association, and of those women, only one-half have miscarriages. You can't necessarily stop pregnancy bleeding, but there are some things you can do to help prevent it and to avoid making it worse.
