I am a 57 yr old female. I had a hysterectomy at age 26, I do have my ovaries. It turns out that I had quite a bit of very fresh, red blood when I went to the bathroom during the night. Had been constipated so I thought it was from my bottom, but was still alot more than spotting. When I got up this morning, I had bled on my liner, and did not appear to be from my bottom!! I was still bleeding, although not as much as during the night. I have an appt for the morning, but of course am pretty freaked out. Had bladder surgery in May and have not bled for a couple of months.
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Youâll need to undergo a detailed examination and evaluation to look for the source of bleeding. As you had undergone the bladder surgery around 2 months ago, thereâs a possibility of the blood coming from the urinary tract. Hence, Iâll suggest getting the urine analysis done.
If thereâre RBCâs in urine, it is indicative of the urinary tract bleeding. Once that is ruled out, then the vaginal source of bleeding should be thought of. You might need further tests like an ultrasound of the lower abdomen and pelvis and maybe a CT scan to search for the source of bleeding. A surgical/per rectal examination to rule out piles as the source of bleeding is equally important. Please do consult a surgeon & gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
