Vaginal bleeding for 6 months is clearly not normal and your vaginal bleeding needs to be evaluated before you become severely anemic. ...Read more

Urethral laceration?: What you are describing suggests bleeding in the urethra (the tube that carries your urine and located just above your vagina).

I am 9 weeks pregnant and have had vaginal bleeding due to a blood clot near uterus. Can being sexually aroused hurt my baby or cause me to bleed.

No, see OB.: Sexual arousal or even having sex will not harm the baby. Sex may cause complications in case the placenta is low in the uterus. Occasional mild bleeding in pregnancy is not uncommon. If is persists, you should consult your OB. I trust that for the sake of your and your baby's health you are seeing an OB. ...Read more

Vaginal ultrasouns showed 4cm hemoragic cyst on left ovary. I've been seeing dried blood clots in urine midcycle. Could this be from the cyst?

No: Blood in urine is not from the ovarian cyst. Are the clots in urine of in vaginal fluid? Dried blood clots in urine are highly unlikely. You may wish to consult your doctor as the findings are inconsistent.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

My grandma,89 years old is bleeding vaginally had hysterctomy many years ago last night they were blood clots. She had a scraping done about 6 weeks?

Doctor ASAP: Your grandmother needs to be evaluated immediately. I am unsure of what kind of scraping you are referring to since she has had a hysterectomy. I am also assuming that her cervix was also taken at the time of hysterectomy. But obviously this amount of bleeding is not normal. Malignancy would be a concern. ...Read more

My wife had a 12-week ultrasound today and everything was normal. She had vaginal bleeding a few hours later. What could cause this?

Soundwaves: Ultrasound simply uses sound waves to generate an image so it would not directly causes bleeding. If this was a transvaginal sonogram then lubricant is applied and any blood in the back of the vagina already might come out and be visualized. You could contact the Obgyn who did the sonogram to see if any abnormalities were seen in the sono that would explain irregular bleeding. ...Read more

Experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding for almost a month. I had an ultrasound done, everything turned out fine. What's wrong with me!

Cannot diagnose: You were hopefully seen by a gynecologist. Ultrasound is not the only modality that can be used for diagnosis. If you have not been fully assessed and do not have a satisfactory explanation for your bleeding you may need a second opinion, but the internet is not the place in which to get it.
