  • Why does my period last longer than they did before?

    It is common for women to experience changes in their periods following having children, and unfortunately it is most common for the periods to be heavier or longer and sometimes irregular. It has to do with hormone changes that occur following childbirth and sometimes can be affected by weight changes if they aren’t able to lose the “baby” weight after having children. Menstrual cycles can be affected significantly by weight changes. READ MORE

  • Why do I have spotting in the 3rd month of my pregnancy?

    I can’t say for sure - but there are many reasons why a woman can spot during pregnancy. Some are very benign, not worrisome, others can be dangerous. More common causes are things like ‘cervical friability’ - a condition where the cells on the inside of the cervix (the glandular cells) are just more prone to bleed and can do so after sex; sometimes things like yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis can cause spotting; or cervical polyps can also cause. These things are not dangerous. More worrisome causes include placenta previa or a miscarriages. A more thorough evaluation with an exam and a sonogram is needed to determine the cause more precisely. READ MORE

  • Why am I bleeding after my pap?

    Hi there! Thank you for your question. I have to assume that you have had abnormal Pap smears since you are getting them done every 6 months. There are several possible reasons why a woman can bleed after their Pap smear. First - it may due to the abnormal cells themselves. If a woman has HPV (human papilloma virus) in her cervical cells and HPV has caused some abnormal changes in the cells, they can bleed due to the disordered growth from the HPV and if they are progressing into precancerous cells (not common, but possible) then the cells bleed easily with Pap smears, or during or after sex. Secondly, and also very common, the brush used to scrape the cells from the cervix is abrasive and can cause the sensitive delicate inner cervical cells (the gland cells) to bleed just from the Pap brush. A third possible cause is the presence of a yeast infection or vaginitis, or sexually transmitted infections, all of which cause inflammation of the cells and result in them bleeding easily. Hope that helps! READ MORE
