Health Care: One does not usually go to see the doctor for such questions. There are absolutely no medical reasons to interfere with your choice of personal hygiene products.

Get to the Doctor: Do not go to the er, but go see your gynecologist. Bleeding is not normal when you do not have ovaries or a uterus.
