Excessive Bleeding & Clotting 2 wks After Hysterocopy & DNC

Customer Question

HI: I had a hysteroscopy & DNC on 6/15. Some Staining after through 6/28- was able to use a panty shield. Yesterday, 6/29, I started bleeding heavy with clotting & severe abdominal cramps. My standard period would last 6-7 days with day 1 on the lighter side; days 2-5 heavy with clotting & lighter on days 6&7. Should I be concerned that I'm having this heavy bleeding & clotting w/severe cramping just 2 weeks after my Hysteroscopy & DNC? I don't know if I should call my Doctor or go to the emergency room or ride it out. I'm an emotional wreck. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance. **DONNA**

Hi,

Why was hysteroscopy done ?

Were you prescribed any hormones ? Are you taking any medications ?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
The Hysteroscopy & DNC were done because I was experiencing Excessive bleeding & clotting. 2weeks prior to the surgery I was prescribed Estriol to stop the bleeding - it did not so we had to move forward with the procedure. The estriol was stopped on Thursday 6/14.
Other medications I am on are:
Effexor XL 75mg 3x daily
Clonazepam 1mg 1 daily
Mirtazapine 15mg [email protected]
Also, Gyno prescribed Motrin 600 & Tylenol 3 as needed for pain before & after procedure.
Over the counter Meds= Benedryl & Prilosec

Hi,

Based upon your history probably you are suffering from DUB . (Dysfunctional uterine bleeding )

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) is heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding that is not caused by an underlying anatomical abnormality, such as a fibroid, lesion, or tumor. DUB is the most common type of abnormal uterine bleeding.

 

You will have to be seen by a Gynaecologist and some haemostatic agent like Tranexamic acid may be prescribed to you to control the bleeding for the time being before further treatment is planned .
