Vaginal bleeding is often the first symptom of an ectopic pregnancy, though it may also be described as spotting and can be different than a normal period. The blood may or may not have clots. Heavy bleeding could indicate a miscarriage. A woman who is pregnant, or one who could be, and experiencing any unexpected bleeding should consult a doctor.
