Vaginal Bleeding/Spotting 3 Months after Hysterectomy

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


woman looking down concerned about bleeding after hysterectomyI am 3 months post-op and noticed some light spotting, very pale, on my panties this morning. Yes, I overdid it by moving a load of dirt and seeding the front lawn. Do you think the extra activity caused this?


By three months post hysterectomy, you should no longer be experiencing bleeding. However, because the tissues are either newly healed or still healing, overdoing it could cause some new vaginal bleeding. If that is the case, you need to stop, put your feet up, and rest a while.

Bleeding beyond initial recovery may also be due to complications, hormones, or other conditions, so be sure and call your doctor's office and tell the nurse about your spotting, remembering to provide your hysterectomy date too. Of course, be sure and confess your extra physical activities. Your doctor might want to check you out or ask you to wait and see if the spotting continues.

When in doubt about bleeding or any other symptoms following your hysterectomy, call your doctor.
