I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood

Hello, I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood mixed in with it. I am 46 and about a year and a half ago had surgery and removal of my left ovary , due to "out of the blue" softball sized cysts and uterine fibroids. This is a bit different for me and I have been bleeding for the past three weeks and now this in the last 24 hours. I am also very anemic and feeling a bit woozy from the flow from the last couple of weeks. It had been a couple of months since last somewhat regular period . I have not had any real regular periods since the surgery and issue . I am not sure if this is cause for concern right now and if I need to go to the doctor ?I am currently taking iron tabs 27 mg per day , magnesium, and vitamin c . That is all maybe a Tylenol or two but try to not take any if possible.Thank youJA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?Customer: A little pain yes . Through lower pelvic area and back as well.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: They did a biopsy prior to the surgery last Jan. 2015 . Had to have a blood transfusion. other than that the surgery and prior issue literally came out of nowhere. It was sudden and all took place over the course of three months. Prior to this was very healthy played sports, I am no longer as active but do walk and do yoga . Nothing like before because of a knee injury.

I experienced bleeding after sex, it was not my first time

I experienced bleeding after sex, it was not my first time ever though it was my first time in 3 years. I noticed the bleeding when I used the restroom, and it has persisted over 6 hours after sex. Not continual bleeding, just shows up on toilet paper. I finished my period 4 or 5 days ago. I have some uterine uncomfortability as well, I feel a bit bloated.

I am on amisulpride (solian) and lithium and have polycistic

I am on amisulpride (solian) and lithium and have polycistic ovaries and have never had a regular period since the age of 9. my progesterone levels are always high due to the Solian.My mother had a rare breast cancer at 32 after 4 pregnancies. We believe my family has the äshkenezie gene. At the age of 3, I had benign breast tumors but did not have surgery - they went away.when I was on the a high estrogen pill (diane) 12 years ago I had a continual period for 6 weeks.I have had vaginal bleeding since April 2016 which is very light and sometimes I don't know it is there. In the past 2 weeks I have had short heavy episodes which go away quickly and then it goes back to very light.My wwc have been high (up to 4 - 5 points above normal for the past 3 years) and since my first yearly blood test in February (10/02/16) they have halved without antibiotics and I had a chest and throat infection at the time and the comment from the lab was mild lymphopenia (test done 05/07/16) - Lymphocytes have gone from a regular 3.40 to.87 which is below the range.Over the last year I have had times where I urinate up to every half an hour but never have a Urinary tract infection. My bowels are erratic, quite often loose and come on very fast.I don't get any pain.No one has been able to explain why my white cells are high.Can you please help me with these symptoms and tell me what I should do. I haven't had a pap smear in about 2 years and am booked in next saturday.Many Thanks, Lara

I got my first pap smear a few days ago., I am and never had

I got my first pap smear a few days ago. For background, I am virgin and never had anything down there, not even tampons. When the doctor started, it was painful and she went to get a smaller tool. When she continued, it felt like someone was stabbing me with a needle. I cried out in pain and later fainted on my way out, hitting my head. Is there something wrong with me, has the doctor damaged my uterus? Also, this is a bit embarrassing, but I am kinda afraid to get married someday now. Does sex and child-birthing feel like this?

My wife has years had some bleeding between periods and

My wife has for several years had some bleeding between periods and occasionally after sex. A few years back she was told she had HPV after a pap smear. I convinced her to go for another test a few weeks back. She got a call today saying that she is now negative for HPV, but had a high number of abnormal cells which she will need to discuss with her doctor. Her appt isn't for another two weeks (after a vacation) and I can't imagine stressing out that long... Is there anything specific about her labs that we can ask for (maybe the actual result or how its categorized) to shed more information on whats going on in the meantime? Can the abnormal cells be left from when she was positive for HPV? Any advice on how to basically calm our nerves or get more info to research prior to her appt? She is 43 and basically in good overall health.
