Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi! So I finished my period a little over a week ago. But yesterday I started bleeding again. Not lightly either. What is going on? This has never happened to me before
Doctor :   Ok, How long was the bleeding last time?
User :   Like a normal period. 5 or 6 days. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Doctor :   Are you married ?
User :   No.
Doctor :   ok, How is the flow now ?
User :   Its not as heavy as my period, but its steady.
Doctor :   ok, Do you see any clots this time?
User :   Clots?
Doctor :   Lumps of blood ?
User :   I'm not sure what you mean.
User :   OH!... um not really. Its sort of grainy actually. Its pretty normal blood.
Doctor :   is it dark in color ?
User :   No. Just blood. looks exactly like my period blood.
Doctor :   ok, this is normal
Doctor :   but happens rarely
Doctor :   where a part of endometrium shreded will stay trapped in the uterus ands the bleeding stops , once the shredded endometrium looses its blood supply completely i gets expelled out with a minimal amount of bleeding
Doctor :   the bleeding may last not more than 3 days , if its prolonged you may have to then consult a gynecologist for detailed examination
User :   Okay. So If it doesn't go away by tomorrow i need to see a Gynecologist?
Doctor :   yes, wait til day after tomorrow
User :   okay. I also took the pill Plan B a week ago. would that have anything to do with it?
Doctor :   yes the chances are fair
