My 86 y/o mom had vaginal bleeding last Saturday evening. I
My 86 y/o mom had vaginal bleeding last Saturday evening. I took her to the emergency room. They did blood work and a ultrasound. The ultrasound revealed that there is "something" in the upper region of her uterus but due to the amount of blood and "debris" they could not possitively identify the abnormality. They recommended followup with her GYN. We met with her GYN who recommended a D&C and biopsy. My mom takes Coumadin for Afib. At the time of her bleeding her coag number was 3.1 The ER Doctor told her to stop taking the coumadin and consult her Cardio MD. The GYN said she would not do the procedure without clearance from the Heart Doctor. We went to him. her coag number is ***** 2.0. He cleared her for the D&C but asked that it be performed withing the next 2-3 days so he could get her back on the Coumadin. My question is do you agree with this invasive procedure given her age and the fact that she has been taking this drug for years. Is it possible to biopsy without the D&C, what are the risks of infection, would she benefit from an second Ultrasound?

I am 52 and had a total hysterectomy at 40 due to varicose
I am 52 and had a total hysterectomy at 40 due to varicose veins on my uterus that would swell and the in was horrible. I have been bleeding vaginally for two weeks with some clotting and pain radiating from my lower left back. I have only one ovary left. I went to Gyn and he checked me and said he found nothing bad and sent me for a CT scan with contrast,. I am awaiting the results. I did not bleed for 24 hours but the pain in my lower back commenced and I started bleeding again. I only bleed when I put pressure to urinate or do number 2 otherwise the blood does not come out continuously.

I'm 45. My periods have always been regular but very heavy.
Hi, I'm 45. My periods have always been regular but very heavy. The last few months there has been some change. My period starts differently in that if I strain even slightly for a bowel movement then my I have vaginal bleeding, bright red like a cut rather than the usual deep brown I usually experience at the start. Then nothing else until a couple of days later when my period will start as usual. Then the same happens at the end of my period, it seems to finish but then I can press toilet tissue to my vagina and it will show fresh red blood and if I strain for a bowel movement I have more fresh red blood. This is coming from my vagina. Due to this my period is lasting an e tra three/four days. Then back to normal and no blood when straining until next period.Please could you help?Thank you.Sarah
