Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Rososy1,
Any bleeding at this point needs to be evaluated; so I would call your health care provider, and (s)he will most likely want to examine you and perhaps will suggest an ultrasound of your pelvis or do a sampling of the lining of your uterus (or possibly both)
Good luck
Mary Jane
