If you are in your second or third trimester and bleeding, you need to call your doctor right away or go to the ER. If you mean placenta previa, it is risky, but many women have given birth to healthy babies. Talk to your doctor about it right away.

I also have placenta previa.  My doctor noticed at my 17 weeks appointment that I had a full previa.  At 22 weeks it had moved about 2 inches.  I haven't had any bleeding though.  He hasn't advised me to stop having sex or anything.  He said as long as I'm not bleeding, then he's not going to worry too much.  I'm now 32 weeks and I have an appointment Thursday.  I think he's going to check again to see if my placenta has moved.  He said that he's very hopeful that it will completely move before it time to deliver.  I try to stay positive and try not to worry too much.  I know all is in God's hands!  So stay prayerful and everything will be ok.

As long as your Dr is monitoring your placenta previa closely, it should be ok. I was diagnosed w. placenta previa at like 8-10 weeks and also was bleeding, but the bleeding only lasted a couple of days and my placenta previa corrected itself within the next 4 weeks..

I would just keep a very close eye on it and if the bleeding persists, be sure to get your Dr. ASAP.. Most cases of previa correct themesleves before delivery, and if not, as long as you are closely monitored, you and the baby should be fine. You may have to have a c-section, though..

Good luck and stay positive! =)

Laura and everyone gave great advice...I was diagnosed with a low lying placenta, not quite previa but they put me on pelvic rest and no exercise etc. from weeks 18 to 24...it corrected itself BUT my doctor said, worst case scenario would be bed rest and a c-section.  

Hopefully  your doctor is monitoring you especially if you are having bleeding.  My advice is take it easy!
