Welcome to ehealthforum,
Mild vaginal bleeding/spotting occurring within 2 weeks of hysterectomy is considered to be normal. If the bleeding is heavy or if it has occurred suddenly, do not ignore your symptoms. Possibilities of wound rupture/suture rupture, accumulation of tissue fluid, vault injury, granulation tissue sloughing, cancer, polyps, vaginal endometriosis etc are present. If it occurs only after intercourse, then it could suggest possibility of vaginal infections, injury, etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation. Get started on appropriate treatment (as indicated by examination findings and investigation results) to control the bleeding. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water.
