Is vaginal bleeding after laparascopy common?

Endometriosis — a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus (the endometrium) grows outside your uterus — is often a challenging condition to diagnose. Laparoscopy is the most common procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. During the laparoscopy, your surgeon will make an incision in your abdomen, typically under your bellybutton. Next, a small tube called a cannula is inserted into the opening. The cannula is used to inflate the abdomen with gas, usually carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide. This helps your surgeon to see the inside of your abdomen more clearly. Your surgeon inserts the laparoscope next. There’s a small camera on the top of the laparoscope that allows them to see your internal organs on a screen. Your surgeon may make additional incisions to get a better view. Bleeding after laparoscopy is one of the most common reports that is reported by patients. But the bleeding after laparoscopy is not always disturbing.

Is vaginal bleeding after hysterectomy common?

It’s normal to have bloody vaginal discharge for several days to several weeks after a hysterectomy, as the stitches (sutures) dissolve and the tissue heals. You’ll likely need to wear sanitary pads during that time. Generally, vaginal bleeding after hysterectomy should be light. You may notice occasional spotting or a pink discharge. If bleeding after hysterectomy is as heavy as a menstrual period (heavier than a menstrual period or completely soaks a large sanitary pad and continues for more than one hour) or lasts longer than six weeks, consult your doctor for an evaluation. If you had a supracervical hysterectomy, occasionally a small amount of bleeding can occur at the time of your period and this may be annoying, but is normal.
