Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 3 years ago.
Bleeding and cramps a week after your period ends is unusual. It shouldn't be a hormonal problem, since you've been having regular periods. It might be from fibroids, but that's somewhat unusual at age 27. It could be from an STD, but that seems highly unlikely. It's also highly unlikely that it's from pregnancy, since you've had your tubes tied, plus bleeding a week after a period is not suggestive of pregnancy.

I don't think this has anything to do with the abnormal Pap smear or LEEP, since that should be cured.

So it's very hard to even have a good idea what could be causing your bleeding and cramping. I would recommend seeing your doctor. Perhaps an exam can help figure out what the cause is.

Could cyst on my ovaries cause the cramps and the bleeding


 

Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 3 years ago.
No. An ovarian cyst won't cause cramps or bleeding. Sometimes an ovarian cyst is associated with hormonal changes, which could cause the cramps and bleeding, but with regular periods and no missed periods, hormonal changes are very unlikely.
