A 37-year-old female asked:

I just had hernia surgery a week ago and had to strain to have a bowel movement and now have vaginal bleeding could it be from the surgery?

Unlikely: Straining to have a BM might cause pain at site of hernia repair but I can't see the connection to vaginal bleeding unless you have GYN problems unrelated to the surgery. If bleeding persists see your OB/GYN.
