A LOT of bleeding with intercourse

I have a question. My husband and I attempted intercourse today for the first time since my surgery. It has been just over 6 weeks. I expected some bleeding, because I have read that is normal. However, I bled A LOT, I mean it was running down my legs and his (I am sorry, that is gross). We stopped when we saw how much blood there was. I am still bleeding some, but not much now at several hours later. Any thoughts? Is that much normal?
Thanks so much! And, I am sorry for the grossness.

Call your doctor. could be a problem with your vaginal cuff. might need something as simple as silver nitrate (which i have had twice) or something as serious as surgery. call doctor asap and keep us posted.

I had my surgery the same day and I had sex last night. I didn't bleed at all but it was tender. I had a small blood clot when I wiped. I would call my Dr to get checked out. I agree it could be your vaginal cuff. I hope you feel better and it stops! That is scary. Let us know what happens.

A LOT of bleeding with intercourse

Thank you all SO much for your posts to my question, it is so nice to feel cared for.
I went to the doctor on Monday and she said that it was a small spot on the cuff that was healing a little weird. She applied silver nitrate and said that it should clear up in a couple of weeks. Hopefully this is the end! NOTHING has gone according to plan since the birth of my daughter and I am very weary, physically and emotionally.
The one positive is that for the first time in years I actually have a sex drive! What a cruel joke - sex drive, no sex ) My poor husband is calling this the year of the famine. Oh well, life goes on.
Thanks again!
