Hysterectomy Answer A11232
Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. You definitely need to consult a gynaecologist to look for the cause of bleeding. You’ll need a per speculum examination as the bleeding can be from the cervix and cervical cancer has to be ruled out. You also might need a pap smear. You might need further tests like a transvaginal ultrasound or a CT scan. Please don’t delay an examination by a gynaecologist.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
