Can Plan B cause spotting and blood clots in urine ?
Thank you for your query.
It is most likely that the small amount of bleeding that you have observed is from a bit of trauma to the cervix or vaginal walls. At times vigorous fingering or sex may trigger this. It usually will resolve completely in 3 to 5 days.
Plan B could also cause a small amount of spotting which comes from shedding of the uterine lining which could last a few days.
I would ask you to observe for next 3 to 5 days and if it resolves then no need for followup. If bleeding persists or worsens or she develops pain or cramping then you should take her to a gynecologist.
I hope I have adequately answered your query. I am available for your followups.
Then the blood clot on her pees is trauma because of vigorous fingering?however why the second day after I finger her, there is no blood?until the next day when she urinate then there is blood clot on her pees? Do you think it is dangerous?she didn't feel any pain or anything..
She only get the blood clot on her pees once today..
Plan b can cause blood clotting in urines?I know plan b cause bleeding,but is the bleeding from urine?and how frequent the bleeding from plan b?once a day?
Is there any possiblity of cancer cervix?or any infection?or do you think this is plan b?please answer me with explanation..please make me sure of your explanation thank you
Thanks for follow up,
I don't think this is cancer or infection. When the lining of the uterus sheds there is blood during urination. This again may be related to the plan B. If you observe her for next 48 or 72 hours and bleeding continues then you should have her evaluated by a Gynecologist. I don't think this is XXXXXXX - let me reassure you of that.
I feel it is likely a combination of Plan B and possibly minor trauma to the cervix with your recent sexual activity. A short time of observation will tell. If bleeding continues she will need to have a comprehensive pelvic exam to evaluate for a source.
Wish you good health.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of waiting a few days to see if the bleeding resolves. Yes, certainly Plan B can cause some degree of bleeding. Blood in urine can be a sign of many things but at this point we have to consider this in the context of her recent use of the plan B. The blood is not likely from the urine but rather is spilled via the vagina during urination. If there is no bleeding after a couple of days but again during fingering or sex then I would recommend she have a comprehensive examination including a pelvic exam which would also evaluate the cervix. Bleeding after sex can be a sign of cervical inflammation or possibly a cervical cancer. I assume she has had her routine pelvic exams and if so this is not a concern at this point. Give it 48 hours and if in 48 hours you are still encountering bleeding or if there is any pain, cramping or discomfort then I recommend she see her physician. I am confident in this as I have had experience with patients with these types of symptoms on many occasions in the past. I understand you are quite concerned, and appropriately so.
I would again like to reassure you that most likely the bleeding will resolve and she will be back to enjoying good health soon.
I wish you all the best and I appreciate your query.
Again we have to take her symptoms in context of the recent use of Plan B. I think the most likely causes in order of likelihood of her bleeding are:
1) Plan B use 2) Local trauma to cervix with fingering or sex.
Recommendation: Wait 48 hours from right now. If bleeding is not resolved at that time - she should see her physician sooner. Regardless, she needs regular gyn exam anyway to make sure her pelvic organs are fine and to do screening cervical exam. Finally, if she has pain, cramping, fever, chills or unexplained nausea or vomiting - she should see her doctor sooner.
I hope I have provided good answers and reassurance to youregarding your concerns. I wish you all the best and good health.
Once again - the likely explanation of the bleeding with urination is that the urine dislodges some of the blood in the lower vagina as it splashes a bit from the urethra along the wall of the lower vagina and into the toilet. It is highly unlikely that she has blood originating from a urinary source such as kidney or bladder. This is uterine bleeding.
Her symptoms are an effect of the Plan B treatment. It is well known that the Plan B can cause a period to come even a week earlier than normal. Her normal cycle will likely resume in the next couple of menstrual periods. Let me reassure you again that we are dealing with effects of PlanB.
Finally, continue to observe how she is doing, make sure she continues to eat well and drinks plenty of fluids and if she develops significant pain or cramping that are much worse than she normally experiences with her periods then she should contact her physician.
Thank you for your query. I wish you all the best and good health.
