Yesterday I noticed spots of blood in my underwear. I thought it could be my period starting but it was to far forward. When I wiped it was a little bloody but it not look like my pee had any blood in it. It is still doing it today and I was just wondering if it is something I need to go to the doctor for, like stomach bleeding, but nothing hurts or feels weird. I take fluoxetine on a daily basis and it says taking ibuprofen regularly/often may cause stomach bleeding. I am just not sure what to do or what is going on.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. First of all we need to confirm the source of this bleeding whether it is from urethra or vagina. It can be due to intermenstrual bleeding. It could be due to several causes. Firstly, you should get urine for pregnancy test done to rule out miscarriage as the cause of bleeding if you had unprotected sexual intercourse prior to that. Other causes which need to be looked into are fluctuation in hormone levels, hypothyroidism & fibroid in the uterus. It could also be due to a genital infection, cervical polyps or ectopic pregnancy.
Other than that bleeding from the lower urinary tract also should be ruled out. For this get a microscopic examination of urine done.
