An interesting question that was asked during a lecture about human reproduction: what is the biological mechanism behind some pregnant women getting monthly spotting that they mistake for a regular period? I've found articles and research papers about bleeding during zygote implantation, ectopic pregnancies and problems with the placement of the placenta, but nothing regarding menses-like bleeding during otherwise unproblematic pregnancies.
