I have a very prolapsed bladder. Today, after no intercourse, I had a tiny blood at my vaginal opening, not in my urine. Is this serious.?

Bladder bleeding will show up in your urine, but could be microscopic. In the vaginal opening, someone with training needs to look up there to sort out exactly where it's coming from to answer your quesiton properly. ...Read more
