Question: I am 7 weeks post tubal burning/litigation which was performed 6 weeks post partum. I bled for almost 3 weeks after the procedure and then I had my menstural cycle, I have been bleeding for over a week post coital, bright red at first then dark with clots. Is this normal or should I contact my doctor?

Brief Answer: Better to consult gynecologist once Detailed Answer: Hi, As 7 weeks over after your tubal ligation, the bleeding now you are having may not be related to that. As the bleeding started after intercourse, the possible causes for the bleeding are : - Post coital tear. This can present with pain and bleeding after intercourse. Fresh bleeding can occur initially. Later because of dislodgment clots can come out. - Local causes like cervical erosion etc can bleed after intercourse. So, better to consult gynecologist once and get examined to find out the exact cause and take treatment accordingly. If there is any doubt regarding the success of the tubal ligation, once go for ultrasound with your doctor's advice. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.

I'm 30 years old, I am in good health, I had a vasectomy a week ago. Since then my scrotum has been extremely relaxed, or in other words "saggy balls". They have yet to constrict, which has made recovery even more uncomfortable. Is this something to be cocerned about, is this normal?

Hi my husband recently had a vasectomy and he was tested 2 months later and tested negative for sperm. I have since stopped using birth control (marvelon ). I have missed a period and am hoping its just due to going off my pill and my body readjusting. Whats your opinion o this ?

I had a vasectomy when I was 24 years old. I am now 50. I am married to another woman now and we would like to have a child together. The Doctor that did my vasectomy told me it was the non reversable kind meaning he tied a knot and used stiches not a clamp. Can this vasectomy be reversed? Do I still make sperm? Can this sperm be extracted and artifically implanted in my wife?
