Is it normal for only one side of my uterus to bleed?

Is it normal for only one side of my uterus to bleed?

How can you tell?: A woman can't see her uterus. She can't "touch" it (except during pregnancy). No matter which part of the uterus bleeds, the blood drains down through a single hole in the cervix. That means there is no way to tell where in the uterus the blood is coming from. If there is very little blood on a tampon, the blood might stain only one side of the tampon.... But that would not be a sign of illness. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy last year I started to bleed this morning with a horrible back pain is this normal. Just uterus removed?

I had a partial hysterectomy last year I started to bleed this morning with a horrible back pain is this normal. Just uterus removed?

No: If you had your whole uterus removed this is definitely not normal. You need to be seen immediately either at your doctor's office, an urgent care clinic, or an emergency room. The back ache could be because of a kidney stone or a severe bladder infection. If the bleeding is rectal it could be diverticulitis, colitis, or colon cancer. If it is vaginal that is also very worrisome-nothing left to bleed ...Read more

My uterus normal about 6 cent. I have a fibroid 5 cent. On the nuvaring for bleeding. Is this why it looks like I'm pregnant. Because of that fibroid?

My uterus normal about 6 cent. I have a fibroid 5 cent. On the nuvaring for bleeding. Is this why it looks like I'm pregnant. Because of that fibroid?

Fibroids: It depends on the location of the fibroid and your size. If you are thin and the fibroid is on the front and on top (anterior fundal) of the uterus, it can push on your abdominal wall and make you look pregnant if you are thin. The NuvaRing would be useful if the fibroid were close to the lining and should not be in a place to make you look pregnant. ...Read more

When can I have intercourse? I had my check up my doctor said my uterus is back to normal size I had no cuts or tears and no longer bleeding.

You can now: It is difficult to understand your question. Did you have a procedure or you had a baby.
If your exam was normal as you say. Normal uterus size after? (pregnancy?) or /?
You can have sex any time now
Why did you not ask your Gynecologist/Obstetrician when you were examined
But if everything is normal, go ahead and have sex ...Read more

Hi doctor I'm 6 wks pregnant & I'm getting twinges & shooting pains in my left pelvic area & uterus. No bleeding. Is this normal? What is causing this

Hi doctor I'm 6 wks pregnant & I'm getting twinges & shooting pains in my left pelvic area & uterus. No bleeding. Is this normal? What is causing this

Possibly normal: The worst case is a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage, so if you have not confirmed that the pregnancy is in the uterus with an ultrasound exam you should do so. More usual and quite normal are simple growing pains or an ovarian cyst. A corpus luteum cyst supports the early pregnancy until the placenta develops, and will go away when it is no longer needed. ...Read more

If you had a patient that had a "normal" uterus on ultrasound followed by endo ablation for severe uterine bleeding (6 wk duration) would you expect them to have developed 2 leiomyoma of 1.0 cm diameter and worsening abd pain 5 weeks after ablation when n

If you had a patient that had a "normal" uterus on ultrasound followed by endo ablation for severe uterine bleeding (6 wk duration) would you expect them to have developed 2 leiomyoma of 1.0 cm diameter and worsening abd pain 5 weeks after ablation when n

No: You probably had uterine fibroids already present. The ablation only targets the endometrial lining inside the uterus. However, the fibroids, that are present in the deeper layers are not usually affected by the ablation. They are small fibroids but if they are undergoing degeneration can cause pain. Use ibuprofen for pain control ...Read more

I have been having some vaginal bleeding since nov. Doctor checked my ovaries and uterus and everything was normal, what could it be? I am anemic.

Iron, Gynecologist: This is not an unusual problem in your age. Do not worry. Please see gynecologist asap. Check CBC again, iron therapy is important. Dose would depend on the degree of anemia. A birth control pill might solve the situation. If the problem persists and anemia does not resolve, see hematologist. ...Read more
