Question: OBGYN Question:

I am a 29yr old female, married, has not had children yet, but wants children. My husband and I were sexually active, and he fingered me. This time, he tried to use 4 fingers. This is the first time this has happened to me, ever. I could only tolerate it for 5-10minutes and told him to stop. I started to bleed (wiping shows a dime to a nickle size spot of blood) It has been 12 hours since and I am still bleeding with cramping, everytime i wipe, i see blood of the same size, still bright red. Due to the bleeding and soreness, I am researching online. I read in some cases it can cause a loss of ability for me to have children (if he hit & stretched the cervix) Should I go to the hospital? Am i just worrying for nothing? Please & Greatly appreciated.

Brief Answer:
visit a Gynaecologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
You need to visit a gynecologist for examination because the bleeding you are having is most probably due to some tear in vagina which is oozing since then.
Fingering cannot injure cervix especially if his nails are cut properly so it wont cause any problem in fertility.
You need to take a tablet of tranexamic acid 500 mg till you visit your doctor.
So just relax and try to avoid this in future.
Take care.

I was put on a course of various tablets including tranexamic acid to stop bleeding in the throat, Since I ve stopped taking the tranexamic acid my left lower leg has been painful and swollen, it started easing off for a while and was just mild shooting pains but the past few days the pain has been constant and really sore, it s been quite swollen for 2-3 days but has started to go down now.. It s sore to move and touch, extreme pain when walking and is still sore to even rest, the right leg is completely fine, not actually sure if it has anything to do with the tablets or such, did suspect it was maybe a pulled muscle or something of the kind but can only pin point it too when I stopped the course of tablets, any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
