i have never heard of vaginal bleeding and heavy drinking being interrelated.Are you having rough sex?Do you have a undiagnosed gynecological problem?How long have you drank for and how much do you drink in a nitely episode?

No i am not having any rough sex, i have no undiagnosed gynecological problem. I will usually have about 5 drinks & i have been drinking since i was about 15 years old, but is not an everyday thing, i only drink maybe twice in a month.

i just googled excessive alcohol use and vaginal bleeding.The only thing that came up was a correlation between heavy alcohol use gastrointestinal disorders ulcers etc. that would lead to rectal bleeding.Could not find anything else on the vaginal issue.anyone else out there know something about this?

hi. according to an article from the u.s. national library of medicine, thrombolytic therapy used to treat pulmonary thromboembolism can result in the bleeding. the shakiness is likely from a neurological rebound from the sedating effects of the alcohol. hope this helps,  gm
