Brief Answer: MOSTLY WITHDRAWAL BLEEDING. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments: 1) Bright red bleeding is mostly due to withdrawal effect of ESTRACE. It is quite common and normal thing. 2) In this context, possibility of bleeding from medical procedure is quite low as it occurs at the time of local tissue injury and not after 1 to 2 days. Kindly, consult with your gynecologist regarding this and proceed one pelvic examination to rule out underlying cause (if any). Hope, it helps for you. Let me know, if you need any clarification. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
