Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear Nadine: If you have been having serious abdominal pain and heavy bleeding since your last birth ten months ago, you really need to be evaluated by a GYN or even your local county family planning clinic. Some POSSIBLE causes might include:

1. Postpartum infection--Occasionally a tiny fragment of placental tissue will remain behind inside the uterus. Over time it sets up a focus for infection. This will cause inflammation, pelvic pain, and erratic bleeding. Treatment is with antibiotics and sometimes a D&C if tissue needs to be removed.

2. Pelvic infection--This is caused by a new infection with gonorrhea or chlamydia. If you are in a monogamous relationship this is not going to be your culprit.

3. Large ovarian cyst---An ovarian cyst will prompt pain and trigger erratic bleeding (sometimes quite heavy bleeding).

4. Endometriosis--This is a possibility, especially if you have a family history of endometriosis. Yet it tends not to suddenly onset; usually this kind of pain develops over several years.

5. Cancer---Really doubt this is a factor.

PLEASE, please go back to your OB/GYN or clinic. You need all your energy with two young children so the exact cause needs to be identified and treated.

In Concern,
Jane
