Hello,

* As per my clinical experience, the umbilical hernia does not provoke vaginal bleeding in any manner.

* There are various symptoms of umbilical hernia as

- no symptoms or discomfort if very small size
- swelling over anterior abdomen wall overlying umbilicus
- protrusion of belly through underlying popping of intestine and omental fat
- heaviness or fullness after meals
- early satiety if large size hernia
- prominent swelling over umbilicus during weight lifting, coughing or any measure that raise the intraabdominal pressure
- vomiting in case of early obstruction pattern
- if there is twisting of loops of intestine there can be systemic signs of hypotension, tachycardia, severe pain, guarding , rigidity.

* While that of vaginal bleeding is in relation with endometrial hyperplasia, fibroid, ovarian tumor , other endocrinopathies or else.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
