OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Well its been pretty long now ,if you are still bleeding then you should definitely get it reviewed by your GYN. Bleeding can last for as long as 2 weeks post procedure but 5 weeks is bit too long.

There are two possibilities.;

1-bleeding related to procedure itself

2-bleeding from some other underlying condition such as a polyp, growth or even cancer.

3- very commonly in postmenopausal women vagina becomes very dry and fragile bevause of decline in estrogen levels- so any type of manipulation done as in intercourse or here in D&C causes bleed more often/ for longer duration .

So it needs to be checked fir the source of bleed.

hope it was useful.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

Wishing you a healthy life.

Regards
