Bleeding after Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy
jepan513 posted:
I am 36 years old and BRCA 1+. I had both of my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed because of my high risk of ovarian cancer. I had this surgery about 4 weeks ago. I bled for about 2 weeks after my surgery, which I expected. I then stopped bleeding for about 1 1/2 weeks and now for the last 5 days I am bleeding again. The blood is dark and not to heavy, although there are some clots. I stayed on birth control after my surgery to prevent me from going onto surgical menopause right now. I am having a double mastectomy at the end of July and once all of my surgeries regarding that are done I plan on going on HRT. I don't know if I need to be concerned about this bleeding, if it's from the surgery or from me taking birth control pills?
