I would insist on a surgical consult in the ER if the ER doc does not give you a satisfactory explanation or do appropriate lab work or other studies. ...Read more

Ab vaginal bleeding: I gather that your question is whether a tiny bit of vaginal bleeding is serious. That depends on your age, you hormonal cycle, and where exactly does the blood come from. 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
