OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 7 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
