Question: I'm having slight bleeding when I urinate and also light vaginal bleeding. I am also having slight abdominal pain. I had cervical cancer and had to have a complete hysterectomy 36 years ago in which they removed my uterus, 1 ovary and cervix. . I had radiation treatments for 3 months afterwards which they said would kill my other ovary. I have been taking hormones all these years. I'm a little frightened in regards to what this could be.

Brief Answer:
Urinary infection is the most common cause;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
It is a good news that there are no.vaginal.problems.
The most common cause should be an infection of the lower urinary tract ( hemorrhagic cystitis)especially if you have frequent urination and burning sensation during urination.
Otherwise upper urinary tract infection (pyelonepritis) or other pathologies ( pathologies of the urinary vesicle, a stone at the urinary tract, glomerular pathologies ect) should be excluded.
You need at first a simple urine test and culture of the urine to rule out infection than your treating physician will ask for further radiological examinations.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,

It's not a UTI. I was tested for that.

Brief Answer:
Other pathologies need to be excluded in that scenario

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back!

Thanks for clarifying. If urinary tract infection is already excluded then a pathology of the urinary tract such as stone, vesical papilloma or glomerulonephritis should be excluded.

An ultrasound of the Kidney-ureter and, bladder along with further exams are needed along with the urological check-up in that scenario.

Please discuss with your doctor about these.

Best wishes,

My 15 year old daughter has occasional severe lower abdominal pain. She will feel the need to urinate and then won t be able to. She ends up with severe pain, curled up in a ball crying.

Any suggestions on what our next step should be. We ve been with the urologist for about a year. She s seen a gynecologist and all tests were negative.
