thanks for your reply.

This bleeding can be vaginal.

Mysticdoc :

In that case, this can be caused by the hormonal imbalance commonly.

Mysticdoc :

Other possibilities include given the left sided stomach pain:

Mysticdoc :

1. Uterine fibroid --benign tumors

Mysticdoc :

2. Uterine lining thickening ( endometrial hyperplasia)

Mysticdoc :

3. Ovarian cyst

Mysticdoc :

4. Cervical polyps

Mysticdoc :

Besides these possibilities, bladder infection also can cause blood in the urine.

Mysticdoc :

Precancerous lesions in the bladder, kidney stones are other possibilities.

Mysticdoc :

Hence, you need to see your doctor for further evaluation.

Mysticdoc :

A CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis with contras should be considered to establish the diagnosis.

Mysticdoc :

Pelvic ultrasound also is another good option.
