I am 50 years old and have a prolapsed uterus. I dont have an appointment until Dec 12 but have been having bleeding on and off all week and need to wear a pad, is it normal to have bleeding with a prolapsed uterus or not? It has me worried. I don't have a family doctor because of a shortage here. thanks
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Prolapsed uterus along with bleeding that you describe could indicate probable infection, erosion, inflammation, etc. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the symptoms that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation (as suggested by examination findings). Avoid any self manipulation. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Look out for other symptoms like appearance of bleeding, pain, increase in discomfort, pus discharge, etc. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
