Bleeding After Pelvic Examination
I had a pelvic examination yesterday and today I have moderate cramping in my groin area right side 5/10....and I am bleeding like I am on my period?
Either one: If your GP does gyn exams, that's a great starting point since you already know that person, and have a trusting relationship hopefully. If problems are found that require specialist referral you can then be referred to one your doc trusts and respects. Seeing a new doctor for an exam that is so intimate is always disconcerting, so having a doc you know and like 1st takes some of the dread away. ...Read more
Not Likely: Most women have some difficulty having an orgasm under ideal circumstances. A routine pelvic exam is not intended to be arousing. It is possible for some women to become aroused by the combination of being undressed and in a submissive vulnerable position, but an orgasm would be very unlikely. If you are attracted to your doctor to the point of arousal, it may be better for you to change doctors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On pelvic examination, I had a retroplaced uterus and my doctor said I had endometriosis. How common is this?
A retroplaced uterus: Is not uncommon, like being left handed. It is possible that on exam your physician felt nodules on the ligaments that support your uterus that could be endometriotic implants.

A retroplaced uterus doesn't = endometriosis though some with endo might have a retoplaced uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a pelvic examination and was told I had a bulky womb and have been sent for ultrasound. What does this mean?
Pelvic Ultrasound: "Bulky" probably just means "enlarged". Pelvic ultrasound is used to evaluate uterine growth. Assuming you aren't pregnant, you could have fibroids, adenomyosis, or ovarian cysts (which can be confused with uterine enlargement depending on their location). Ultrasound is an easy test to have done, there is no radiation, and it is minimally uncomfortable. Also, you can expect a probe in the vagina. ...Read more
