15 months after my LSH -experiencing bright red blood bleeding after sex
It lasts just a few hours after sex. What would cause this bleeding?
Is this normal?


What should I do - I'm not thrilled to go back and see my doctor -- after surgery I got an abcess on my cervix and stayed 14 days on 24/7 IV's - with antibiotic, CAT scans, XRAYS, Blood Test -the whole sha-bang. That was a horrible experience -- they almost cut me opened to get at the abcess - fever also.

They put me under the car of an Infectious Disease Doctor in the hospital, who then sent home on oral antibiotic (Levaquin) had an adverse reation to that cause it started to affect the tendons in my ankles and wrists - I couldn't walk for 3 months or use my hands very well. I slept on an air mattress next to the bathroom and used a walker then a cane.


I know I was an emtional mess and don't want to start that up again.
Mad that this surgery is runing my sex life.

PLEASE ADVISE

Sexual hormonal imbalance


Bleeding after intercourse is one of the symptoms of sexual hormonal imbalance. Considering that recently you had hysterectomy, hormonal imbalance would not be a surprise. You might want to visit a gynecologist and have laboratory blood tests about the sexual hormones. If the results show any hormonal imbalance, then your doctor might recommend you contraceptive pills which contain adequate female sex hormones.
