spotting after sex 4 months out

Hi, I am not sure if I should be posting here or somewhere else as I am 4 months post op. Last night after sex I had pink spotting for the first time. I have a call into my doc, but I am kind of freaked out about it. What could be wrong at this point?

Hi. Im really curious what your Dr said as I had mine on 10/23 and had spotting the other day.

At my check up in early December my Dr told me some spotting was to be expected when resuming sexual relations but he didnt tell me for how long or explain why i could go for WEEKS without spotting but then spot all of a sudden?!

I also had spotting with sex when I had sex for the 1st time last week. I also had some bright red blood. I am 3 months out.

For those of you that have listened to me whine about being single, I got back together with my BF that I had broken things off with prior to my hyster

I have an appointment tomorrow. I'll let you know what he says. Other than the sex I haven't seen any blood pink or red for more than a month.

starbgirl, if tahts the first time you've had sex.. the spotting wouldn't concern me but only because I was told to expect it. I got the go ahead back in December. Now it's been 6 weeks or more since the green light and to spot and have pain for me... was concerning...

I hope you get reassurance from your Dr

My doc said it was granulation tissue and burned it with silver nitrate. I have not had any granulation tissue before and find it odd that I would have my first granulation tissue at 4 months. Anyone else hear of this?

doodlebee -

did the silver nitrate hurt? I *think* that is what my problem is and I'm expecting that tomorrow although I'm nervous. Yikes!!

barelysane - You know I did think about not calling because it was the first time and I thought maybe I should ride it out BUT I did have vaginal cuff cellulitis and I was healing really slowly from that which is why the 3 month wait. So in the end I decided I should let him take a quick peek. I was supposed to have another CT scan to ensure all was well on the 25th but I had SO many along the way I decided (with his approval) that as long as I was feling good I would skip it, and I was so I did At this point I feel my guts will already be glow in the dark forever - LOL!!!!

I'll let you know what he says,

starbgirl, yes, it caused real bad cramping. It does not burn but I immediately felt crampy and felt that way for two more days. You also get a lot of greyish/silver discharge afterwards, so don't freak out. Good luck!

Hi all,

I just had the same experience. I also had spotting after sex the first time. No one mentioned this to me, so it kind of freaked me out. Glad to know it's normal. 3 months out seems like a long time for spotting, but apparently not! Glad you all were here for me to check in with.
