I have had an abscess just above my bum and it burst the other day, pain has subsided and bleeding is far less, though there is still some serous flui?

I have had an abscess just above my bum and it burst the other day, pain has subsided and bleeding is far less, though there is still some serous flui?

What's the question?: Well, that's one way to handle an abscess - wait for it to burst. The healing process should begin now that the space containing the infection has been emptied of its contents. But you didn't have to go through all that pain and (probably) worry -- if it ever happens again, get to a doctor early in the course and get it treated in a less painful and more civilized manner. ...Read more

11wks pregnant I lost balance and tripped over my kids toy and fell on my bum and side. No bleeding pain but I'm scared the baby is hurt... : (?

Spotting might suggest the placenta had moved or been affected but that would be your observable sign other than cramping. ...Read more
