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.

Daughter had a tubal ligation - 6days ago and is a lot of pain- so a sonogram was preformed and reveal a hematoma by the left ovary. Doctor stated that should not cause her to be in a lot of pain. Her pain involves the lower left side- ovary and her upper left stomach area. A cat scan also revealed she has a pool of blood and her doctor stated that nothing can be done. She does not have fever, she is not vomiting blood, and her stools are not tarry. What is the protocol ? She is a lot of pain- Can this blood be removed- before she get worse?
