Had IV contrast 3days ago for MRI and arm has dull ache from shoulder to wrist, normal? Did bleed out a little after tech took needle out. Tiny bruise

Arm ache: This does not sound like a reaction to the MRI or contrast and i doubt that you developed a phlebitis from the IV puncture or insertion. Perhaps you were lying in an awkward postion for a lengthy time and sustained some sort of strain or sprain. If you can tolerate nsaids like ibuprofen, this would help. See your md if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

Having bleeding and soreness after vaginal intercourse... What to do?

Dryness?: You should not be having vaginal bleeding for reasons related directly to sex unless the sex is forced, you are not lubricating normally, or you are using some materials during sex which are irritating to the tissues. This is a very good reason to see an ob/gyn doctor. There are some potentially serious possibilities which cannot be guessed at & needs an examination. ...Read more

I just scratched a mole on my arm gently and it started bleeding, should I have it looked at?

I just scratched a mole on my arm gently and it started bleeding, should I have it looked at?

Yes: Don't want to alarm, but IMO any mole that misbehaves, including bleeding with minor irritation, should be taken VERY seriously. It is probably not melanoma, but this could be an early warning and you can never be too careful with this disease. It is a killer. And it can be cured if found and treated early. See someone and if they are unimpressed, ask why it bled and what if it IS a melanoma. ...Read more

I have a cut like sore on my tongue....Its been there for some time now.....Sometimes it pains but not always...No bleeding?

Have it checked out: Sometimes tongue sores are caused by rubbing on the teeth and can be had to get rid of. (traumatic fibroma) however, if it is not going away, have it checked out by an ENT doctor. They can do a small biopsy in the office to check if it is an early tongue tumor. Should it be that, catching it early is the best thing you can do for yourself. ...Read more

Get is checked pleas: It is difficult to assess without looking at these spots It might be due to pressure on the arm, or due to blood problems resulting in reducing number of Platelets (tiny pieces that helps preventing bleeding) in the blood.

In april I got an implanon rod inserted in my arm. I have been bleeding two months straight. Will it stop any time soon? Is this a problem?

Possibly and no: The most troublesome side effect of Implanon is what is called breakthrough bleeding. It usually occurs because the progestin hormone in Implanon makes the endometrium layer of the uterus too thin and unstable. The bleeding is unpredictable and may stop. It does not effect the contraceptive effectiveness of implanon. ...Read more
