Pregnant, bleeding after intercourse

I think the bleeding already stopped but i still notice small brownish drops each time i pee and wipe my vagina. although the doctor said that my cervix is closed and the baby is fine when we listened to her heart beat, i still feel scared. Am i at risk of having premature delivery? pls help

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Since you had a frank bleeding when you had sex with your boyfriend, the brownish spotting that you are seeing now is likely to be the retained blood in your vagina. Your doctor has examined you and ruled out any chances of complications. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,

Recently i was spotting then it became heavy which was my period then i went back to spotting again. I continued to spot for about a month and each time my husband and i had sex i would bleed more. I wemt to my gyn for a pap smear and that bleeding problem and he told me my right ovary was swollen about 3-5 cm. He sent me for blood work and gave me Megestrol to stop the bleeding. All my tests came back fine. And after take mesgestrol for a about 2 days i stopped bleeding. But i had to continue taking it. Well, my husband and i decided to have a baby so he came inside me about 2 days ago. I took my last megestrol pill yesturday morning and decided to stop because of wanting to get pregnant. Could i be pregnant? Or what are my chances of being pregnant?

i first had sex when i was 22yrs and bled heavily, i was with this partner for 6mnths. I then had a one night stand with the same person 4mths after our split-unprotected and bled a little, that was fine and no pain but after started to notice little blood in my urine and sharp abdominal pains. I then went to the GUM clinic where they told me bout me having cells on the outside of my cervix (i looked this up to be cervical ectopy) and i was also treated for PID, 2 weeks later i returned and got the all clear. 2 years on n i have just had unprotected sex with a new partner, there was heavy bleeding again-he was also larger than previous partner and soreness was there the next day, I have also bled twice after having a bowel movement but the 3rd time there was nothing. i have bled from my vagina but only lasted 2 days and no bleeding in urine this time. Have i got anything to worry about? or is it due to being still quite new to sex? i am turning 25 in couple of months so i know my 1st smear will be due.plz help x

I will be having an Minera IUD inserted tomorrow and the dr. suggested an injection of xylocain into my cervix prior to the procedure. I had a shot of this into my cervix many years ago and I felt a rush come over my whole body. It felt really awful. I m wondering if this is common, normal and if I have to have the shot in my cervix for the IUD insertion. I m worried about it. I also have PVC s that I take a 12.5 mg dose of metoprolol for each day. Does this matter?

Good afternoon, I had a (LAVH) Da Vinci Robotic Surgery on Monday, April 28, 2014 which included a Hysterectomy with Bilateral Salpingo Oophorectomy due to the presence of a fibroid tumor on my cervix in addition to a tubular cyst that was discovered during the surgery. I am 55 years old, 4 years post-menopause and have been on HRT (Estradiol patch and Prometrium) for approximately the last ten years. I am in excellent health overall with a pre-surgical height and weight of 5 8 , 139 pounds. I immediately gained 15 pounds post-surgery and am now down 10 pounds due to drinking lots of water and having my digestive system now in better working order! I still feel very bloated and am wondering if this excess weight is due to continued edema that may be present in abdominal tissues or is it due to my biological/hormonal response to the Hysterectomy? I expected my weight to be (somewhat) less after the surgery and am surprised (not to mention disappointed) that I am already faced with weight gain! Perhaps I made a mistake by even stepping on the scale in the first place at this point in time! Can you provide some reassurance that this is normal and to be expected or is this possibly due to the lack of my normal exercise routine that I have been accustomed to doing for the last five years? Thanks very much for your recommendations and professional advice.
