Blood vessel was nicked during my tubal. I have a knot under left incisio and myvaginal area is black. Motrin n heating pad is treatment is this right?

Some blood spread down under the skin into the vaginal area to discolor the vagina (black). This is called ecchymosis.

I suppose it is possible that mast cell inflammatory mediators could alter blood pressure. Also another possibility is anxiety caused by the presence of severe allergic response. In general most cases of hypertension are not caused by nasal allergy. ...Read more
