Welcome to XXXXXXX

After Hysterectomy it is not normal to have blood in discharge.

Blood in discharge is most probably due to infection in your case.

But to rule out other causes like polyp and cervical cancer you require examination and some tests like Pap smear, Culture & Sensitivity of vaginal swab etc.

You should not take it lightly.

Please get yourself examined by a Gynecologist.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.
