Post-coital bleeding.

This has been going on now for about 3 months.

Gyno appt in early April showed nothing. Results came back normal.

Follow-up ultrasound showed 4 uterine fibroids but nothing that obviously indicated the cause of the bleeding. There is a strong history of endometriosis with my mother and aunt but that often doesn't show on an ultrasound. That's still a possibility.

The dr just said to observe and she will recheck with an U/S in 6 weeks.

The bleeding happens every single time. It's not a huge amount but certainly requires planning before/attention after.'s bright blood initially but then old blood throughout the next 24 hours.

Anybody have experience with this?

It's so alarming at the time...and it's always in the back of my mind since I don't know why this is happening. It almost makes me want to just go in for a complete hysterectomy for fear that this could be something serious (cancer) that is not showing up.

All this time I was finding myself...and I didn't know I was lost.

I had that and bled to the point that my lips and nail beds turned blue. It was fibroids for me recommendation was a hysterectomy. But we were trying to get pregnant at the time, so we "put up with it" for about 8 months. Then figured out that I was aborting every pregnancy at the time of implantation. Since it was apparent that I was going to be unable to carry a pregnancy to term, I went in for the hyst. Best damned medical decision of my life!

As long as your bleeding is like one day of a period and then stops, you might want to follow your doctor's advice. However if its much heavier (as was mine, I bled for 3 out of 4 weeks consistently), or if you never intend to have kids again, I would consider a vaginal hyst. I should be the poster child for that procedure!

Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.
