Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am sorry you are bleeding.

Dr. David :

you should not be bleeding

Dr. David :

I am sorry you have had prior abscesses.

Dr. David :

you need to go to the A&E right away and get evaluated.

Dr. David :

you could have a new area of abscess or infection.

Dr. David :

you need a new pelvic ultrasound scan

Dr. David :

it sounds like you have had a lot of problems with infection and bleeding since your hysterectomy a year ago

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

MY HYSTERECTMY DONE ABOUT 30 YRS AGO

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

when did you start getting abscess infections?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

WHEN I WAS 11 YRS OLD

Dr. David :

have you been sexually active recently?

Dr. David :

if you haven't been sexually active, you could have bad vaginal atrophy which can cause bleeding.

Dr. David :

vaginal atrophy is from lack of estrogen cream to the vagina which can cause severe dry skin and shrinkage of the vagina

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

i haven`t had any sex in well over a decade.`

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

you could have vaginal atrophy causing the bleeding

Dr. David :

do you have dry skin in the vagina?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

not particulary,as i use Dermol 200 to clean my-self

Dr. David :

has the bleeding stopped?

Dr. David :

or are you still having bleeding?

Dr. David :

is this small bleeding or large bleeding?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

yes it has,i would say small and runny

Dr. David :

that is good small amounts.

Dr. David :

you need a gyn exam to know exactly where the bleeding is coming from.

Dr. David :

you might also need to get your urine checked for blood as well

Dr. David :

you could have a urinary tract infection.

Dr. David :

any blood in your urine?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

none,this is the second time this has happend

Dr. David :

I see

Dr. David :

you could have a vaginal ulcer or bad dermatitis in your vaginal canal causing the bleeding.

Dr. David :

are you willing to see a doctor and get a new gyn examination?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :

yes i am

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions for me?

JACUSTOMER-9uj8fdkp- :
