I'm 56 had my pap today and little spasm in vagina and spotting is this normal? All paps have been normal. Why do they only do every three years?

I'm 56 had my pap today and little spasm in vagina and spotting is this normal? All paps have been normal. Why do they only do every three years?

Pap Question: It is normal to have a little spotting after a pap. Some of the collection brushes are vigorous but give a better specimen. Paps are recommended every 3 years only in low risk patients (1 partner, no past abnormals), but you still need to see your GYN and get an exam annually to assess hormone balance, check uterus and ovaries, and answer other preventive medicine questions. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Why do I keep spotting and why does my vagina smell really fishy or like a dead animal?

Why do I keep spotting and why does my vagina smell really fishy or like a dead animal?

Vaginal odor: A few thoughts come to mind. The fishy odor could be bacterial overgrowth and you may need Flagyl for bv. The dead animal odor makes me think of a lost tampon - you might feel around in there to make sure. I'm not sure about why you keep spotting unless it is due to one of these infections causing uterine irritation. If you've had a change of medication, that could also be something to look into. ...Read more

Is it normal to keep getting a minor tear in the same place (bottom of vagina-perinium location)? It produces spotting of blood after sex even with lube

Is it normal to keep getting a minor tear in the same place (bottom of vagina-perinium location)? It produces spotting of blood after sex even with lube

Not normal: Vaginal tears are not a "normal" event during intercourse. Most likely you tore in this location and haven't ever completely healed. This area seems to be prone to stretching and is a hard location to completely heal. I've seen these persist for months. You need to get an exam to make sure there is no infection. Vaginal rest and topical estrogen also sometimes help. Best wishes! ...Read more

Ihave spotting with white dischage on yesterday morning and for that I do pap test and after test I found little amount of blood in my vagina and fro?

Not unusual: A small amount of bleeding following a pap smear is not unusual. It is due to the pap smear collecting instruments causing a small amount of trauma to the cervix. The glandular tissue inside the cervix is especially sensitive and prone to bleeding. The pap smear collects cells from this area as well. This should not be a cause for alarm. ...Read more

See below: The uterine lining (endometrium) can be easily destabilized, and having sex can prompt spotting or breakthough bleeding.

Skin tear: Spotting from vaginal (skin) tear is most likely a result of enthusiastic sexual activities. As long as bleeding/spotting resolves w/o pain or other vaginal discharge, there's nothing to worry about aside from risk for sexually transmitted diseases if he didn't wear a condom. If bleeding/spotting persists, then go see your Family Doc, GYN or county health clinic. ...Read more

Noticed a few small flesh colored bumps on outside of vagina. Just recently started spotting and ended my period a week ago. Nothing hurts.

Needs evaluation: New onset skin lesions on the vulva (area outside of vagina), can be normal skin tags, but very often they are condyloma. They usually present either as a flat lesion that is raised or as a lesion that looks like a cross between an elephant ear and cauliflower.

If you do have condyloma, there are medical and mechanical ways to try to treat them.
