I am wondering if my heavy, bright red vaginal bleeding (between periods) is normal? I have been bleeding all day, and just went through a super tampon in 3 hours. I believe it is around my time of ovulation; I got my period around 10 days back.
Thanks for the reply-- is there any chance it's a tear in the vagina? I'd really appreciate a quick response.
I did have sex around 12 hours before the bleeding.
If the bleeding seems to have slowed in the past 2 hours, do you think it is okay if I wait and see before going to the ER?
At this point I would say I've lost about 2-tampons worth of blood over the course of the day-- not more than that. In the past hour or so, bleeding seems to have eased up.
Is there any danger in waiting until the morning?
Thank you-- one last question: I had a few pangs of abdominal pain earlier in the day, a mild cramping sensation throughout the day, and a bit of (perhaps unrelated) discomfort in my stomach. Would these symptoms be consistent with a tear?
It's actually hard to tell if the bleeding has eased up.
There is still bright red blood coming out; it's not gushing or anything, but I suppose it would never really gush.... I am still bleeding.
I would have a LOT of trouble getting to the emergency room at this point, but I also don't want to lose too much blood overnight potentially. If you were me, what would you do? Do I go to sleep and wait until morning, or find way to get to the ER?
