default
Posted on Mon, 5 May 2014
Question: I am a 63 year old woman who had had total hysterectomy (including removal of the cervix) in 1/2011. The first time that I had intercourse (3 days ago), there was very heavy bleeding, and a large, semi-solid mass also. During intercourse there was a 'popping sound', then the bleeding came. What could have caused this?

Brief Answer: AS BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. I think the possibilities are the following - 1. A polyp 2. A foreign body or growth on the vault 3. Trauma / laceration / tear during intercourse. 4. Vaginal wall cyst that popped. The bleeding cannot be ignored. Please consult a gynaecologist and go for complete internal evaluation - per vaginum and per speculum as well as a pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan, also a Pap smear. All the best Please feel free to discuss further.
