about 3 years ago i was treated for a cervical tear which was causing abnormal bleeding. the bleeding has started again but at first it is red then gradually turns brown with stringy clots which is sometimes very sore. i haven't had a period from dec to may but since may i have not stopped bleeding. what could be causing this because my own gp doesnt seem to be very forthcoming with solutions?
The symptoms that you are having could indicate possibility of another cervical or vaginal injury (especially if you have been having sexual intercourse).
Report to your healthcare provider/gynecologist and get a thorough examination and investigation done to look for the exact cause and start with treatment.
A per speculum examination with proper light would help in your case. Ask for a referral to gynecologist if your GP is not able to diagnose what is happening to you.
