Does blood stay up in vagina after period over? Was having brown discharge ending period, in shower used powerful stream inside vagina now light blood

Does blood stay up in vagina after period over? Was having brown discharge ending period, in shower used powerful stream inside vagina now light blood

Not necessarily: In the normal state of things menstrual fluid will find it's way out. I don't think it wise to put a forceful steam of water into the vagina. Let nature "do its thing". The brown discharge is most likely old menstrual blood. Also at your age I hope that you are seeing your family physician or your OB/GYN periodically for routine PAP smears. ...Read more

After 1 weeks menstrual ended, when pass urine there is a pink or sometime red mucus coming out..after urine,there is some blood stain whn wiping..

After 1 weeks menstrual ended, when pass urine there is a pink or sometime red mucus coming out..after urine,there is some blood stain whn wiping..

This can be: challenging. The fact that you notice this most often after urination means that you must be most suspicious that there is some type of bloody discharge coming from the urethra/urinary tract. This could be simple inflammation of the urethra--urethritis--or an indicator of infection or other problem in the bladder or kidneys. It needs evaluation and testing. See your Doctor soon/now:) ...Read more

Hydrocelectomy- some stiches came off with dried blood after gauze exchange. Slight bleeding but stopped. Can i shower tomorrow (4 days since op.)?

Hydrocelectomy- some stiches came off with dried blood after gauze exchange. Slight bleeding but stopped. Can i shower tomorrow (4 days since op.)?

Wait...: What happened to your post-hydrocelectomy incision is nothing unusual, though not desirable. The most reasonable course for you to take is: continue to keep the incision clean and dry, avoid picking or separating for a look, and take no bath or shower for additional 3-4 days, but even then, still take a protective measures until postop swelling and pain go down. If in doubt, ask surgeon timely. ...Read more

6wks after molars pulled have glu like with numbing quality discharge and now excreted fromall mucous membranesmy hair is glued after sweating.Why?

See an oral surgeon: or a dentist. Pain and swelling following dental extraction is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery, after that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. If pain or other symptoms persists or worsens, it may require attention and you should call your dentist or oral surgeon for follow up appointment. ...Read more

11 weeks pregnant. After intercourse lot of bright red blood. After visit the toilet it calmed down. Days after, mucus and brown blood. misscarriage?

Probably not: Cervix can be somewhat sensitive during pregnancy and can be easily irritated causing some bleeding. One must also thing about infection leading to irritation of cervix as well. Miscarriage is a possibility but sex would not cause a miscarriage. Best to consult your ob doctor and be evaluated. Hope this helps. Best of luck with your pregnancy. Dr R ...Read more

Day 13 of cycle. 2 days after bowel movement light brown blood with mucous from vagina. Panic?

Never panic!: Panic never helps - sometime an extreme immediate threat to your safety can make it unavoidable, but otherwise, don't. This may be nothing at all, but especially if you are TTC, why not visit an OBGYN for exam and advice and solid info on the whole topic of your reproductive system. That way you'll handle it from conception - delivery well. Try to fix your anxiety too. Raising kids will go better. ...Read more

35+4, 3cm dilated, 80% effaced, baby in -1 station, lost mucus plug two days ago, steady cx, no blood/gush of fluid -- how far off is labor?

35+4, 3cm dilated, 80% effaced, baby in -1 station,  lost mucus plug two days ago, steady cx, no blood/gush of fluid -- how far off is labor?

Early labor: From your question, my understanding is that you are having steady contractions. If this is the case and you are 35wks this is premature. You should contact your OB ASAP. If they are not persistent and are not more than 40secs, this my be prodromal or Braxton hicks and oral fluids will help. Either way you should contact your doctor. ...Read more

I had a Pap smear done today and there was blood on the cotton swab after collecting samples from my cervix. Is blood on the cotton ball serious?

I had a Pap smear done today and there was blood on the cotton swab after collecting samples from my cervix. Is blood on the cotton ball serious?

Normal: It's actually very common during a Pap smear for some blood to be found on the swabs. Your cervix and it's respective canal, has very sensitive tissue. Remember the swabs, in reality, scrape cells away from the area to be assessed under a microscope. This "scraping" can disrupt the thin tissue lining and lead to a small amount of bleeding. ...Read more

Bright red blood 12 days post C-section why?

Bright red blood 12 days post C-section why?

From Vagina?: If the bright red bleeding is from vagina and thereby uterus, the answer is yes, this is definitely normal. I typically tell patients that they can expect to bleed, on and off, for even up to 6 weeks post cesarean or post vaginal delivery. Sometimes it stops and you think, 'yea, i'm through bleeding' and then a few days or week later you bleed again. ...Read more
