Why am I experiencing menstrual bleeding during my 17th week of pregnancy?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is not normal to experience menstrual bleeding during pregnancy. However, some women may notice light spotting or bleeding that can be mistaken for a period. This is known as implantation bleeding and occurs when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining. Other possible causes of bleeding during pregnancy include hormonal changes, cervical irritation, or more serious conditions such as miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. If you are experiencing any bleeding during pregnancy, it is important to consult your healthcare provider for an evaluation and appropriate guidance. They will be able to determine the cause of the bleeding and provide necessary care to ensure the health and safety of both you and your baby.

Althought this is very rare it can and does happen to some women. Let your OB know and she she'll take it from there answering any questions or concerns you may have. Happy pregnancy:)
