12/26- annual gyn. check up and pap. Diagnosed w/bacterial vaginitis (started experiencing burning during intercourse earlier in the wk & also during urinating – no pain). Given clindamycin and diflucan. 2 days later I started my period & ended 1/3. 1/5, had intercourse w/hubby - more rough than normal & used hands. Small streak of blood on condom & bright red blood on the toilet tissue after wiping. Wore a pad overnight and no blood on it. Next day more bleeding but never spotted on the pad. There was what looked like very small blood clots (size of an eraser or smaller) too. By the end of the day, noticed only small amounts of pink. 1/7 didn’t have blood until the evening.
1/8 I saw gyn. for another exam/pap. Found only small streak of blood in vagina & a small cut above cervix. She said I had some swelling in my vagina - no signs of bacterial infection or polyps on the cervix. My last pap (on 12/26) came back normal. On 1/12 will get results of 2nd pap. She told me I was on my way to healing and that she saw nothing wrong. Experiencing mild cramping in pelvis/lower abdomen with this. She informed me this happens with even tiny cuts. I went home and no more bleeding.
1/9, no blood in a.m. though some mild cramping. I was also having an upset stomach and stomach pain associated with it. In the afternoon I had a bowel movement that was a little difficult. A couple hrs later I urinated & after wiping, I noticed a lot of blood again with another small clot. A couple hrs later only pinkish red & no clots. Should I be worried & call my doctor (though I was there yesterday for the 2nd time in 2 wks) or is it just the cut? Can a hard bowel movement cause the small cut to open up and bleed w/clots?
