The causes of vaginal bleeding after a hysterectomy include -

  • granulation tissue (healing tissue growing on its own)
  • prolapse of a fallopian tube
  • endometriosis of the end of the vagina
  • atrophic vaginitis due to low estrogen levels and traumatic irritation
  • a cancerous growth at the end of vagina
  • Your mother needs to be seen by a gynaecologist and she should see one early to confirm the diagnosis. Thanks.
