Irregular periods are most common when the fibroids invade the uterine cavity called the endometrium. The symptoms of abnormal bleeding are often caused by other problems as well including polyps, hormonal changes, infections (chlamydia) and cancer of the cervix or uterus. ...Read more

Had constant heavy vaginal bleeding and clotting with right sided pelvic pain for over a year. Waiting for hysterscope and ablation. No fibroids?

Good choice: An ablation is a great option for people with heavy periods who are finished having children. I assume you have had a pelvic sonogram already. Fibroids are easy to see on a sonogram. Even if you did have fibroids an ablation is still a reasonable option. ...Read more

Can fibroids cause you to have vaginal bleeding during the entire 9 months of pregnancy & not cause a miscarriage?

Age 58, MRI shows large fibroids, endometrial thickening 17mm. No HT and no vaginal bleeding. Pelvic pain. Does this warrant biopsy?

Pelvic pain/fibroids: Whenever uterine fibroids are symptomatic, such as pelvic pain, there are several options regarding how to proceed. An endometrial biopsy is done to eliminate or rule in endometrial cancer prior to exploring any surgical options. Removal of the fibroids alone or the uterus is a consideration. There is a <1% cancer rate for fibroids. (leiomyosarcoma) and a frank discussion with your GYN MD is needed ...Read more

I recently started my birth control shot on December 11th. For the last three weeks I have experienced vaginal bleeding. Not a flow. I need advice.

Unpredictable: The bleeding patterns with depoprovera are unpredictable. You are right that for some in takes the period away. For others it causes irregular bleeding. There is no "normal" for Depo-Provera users. The longer you are on it the higher the chance of no periods. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud may be a better option for you if you want to avoid pregnancy and stop having periods. ...Read more

On 10/1/13 bright red vaginal bleeding. 9wks 3days counting frm my last vaginal ultrasound9/11/13. In urgent care 10wks. Told baby ok? Conception day?

Hard to answer: If I understand, you were told on 9/11 that the baby was 9w-3d, but on 10/1, you were told the baby was 10 wks, ; this dating discrepancy plus the bleeding you were having have you concerned.

The story sounds pretty complicated, ; I am going to suggest you see your dr to ask questions, since they will have access to these records.

I had unplanned sex last night and I woke up to vaginal bleeding and my vagina is tighter then normal?

Injury? Cervicitis?: Maybe an injury if "unplanned" implies sex was vigorous or poor lubrication, and trauma would fit with "tightness". However, bleeding after sex can be inflammation of the cervix (cervicitis), including STDs (e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomonas). And your topic tags show STDs are on your mind, so for sure see your doctor or perhaps a public health STD or Planned Parenthood clinic. Good luck! ...Read more
