Blood after sex: If your pap was after you had the bleeding than that's good. You need to get the final micro report on the pap. There might be abnormal cells that you can't see with the eye. Might check a pregnancy test too just to cover all the bases...Take a deep breath! If you keep having bleeding you really need to be checked on a regular basis.

Hi This will be my 4th ceceran. I'm 3wks and 6 days. This morning when I urinated there was a small amount of blood on the tissue. No blood today.

Keep an eye on it: First, there's no relationship between your previous C-sections and the blood on the toilet tissue. A small amount of blood may be sloughed off of the uterus early in pregnancy. If it recurs or worsens or if you notice cramping with it, please contact your OB. One thing they'll want to do is make sure you don't have a urinary infection. Alternatively, you may have hemorrhoids. ...Read more

Why are you checking: I do not understand. Why would you be checking the cervix, position of the uterus or being scared? There is no medical reason to be doing this. Pushing on your cervix may have irritated it and caused the blood. But, there is no health reason to be pushing on or checking the status of your cervix. ...Read more

About a year ago I vomited with a small amount of blood in it, and again tonight I puked with blood. What's the most likely caus first time I puked in about a year.

There: There are several possibilities to consider. These include an ulcer, gastroesophageal varicose veins (usually associated with liver disease), a tear in the esophagus (usually only seen with extremely violent vomiting), inflammation or infection of the esophagus, or a problem with your blood clotting system. A tumor of some type might also bleed.

You need to be evaluated for this, and will probably need a procedure called endoscopy. Until then, avoid Aspirin (which irritates ulcers, can cause nausea, and thins the blood). If you are on other blood thinners, like Plavix or coumadin, (warfarin) your dose levels may need to be adjusted, but don't stop taking those medicines without seeing your doctor. ...Read more
