Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Bleeding vaginally after lifting something heavy can be due to a number of reasons.

In her age it is most likely that she had some degree of vaginal prolapse than can happen with heavy lifting as this exerts pressure on the vagina.

Vaginal prolapse is a condition in which structures such as the uterus, rectum, bladder, urethra, small bowel, or the vagina itself may begin to prolapse, or fall out of their normal positions.It is common in elderly women and bleeding vaginally after lifting something heavy is a typical presentation of vaginal prolapse.

She needs to visit her doctor for an examination and an ultrasound.

Since she is not bleeding at the moment so she can make an appointment with her doctor.

I hope this answers your question.

A couple days.last week she had a uti and also shown blood.

UTI can also cause bleeding.

But today bleeding started after she lifted something heavy so this bleeding is not UTI related,it is due to some degree of prolapse

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
