OT-abnormal vaginal bleeding

I have a doctor's apt scheduled for next month for a problem I've been having off and on for a while. Sometimes after I exercise I bleed for a day, sometimes just a few hours. I've noticed it will happen between a few days before ovulation and a couple of days after ovulation. During this point in my cycle-if I exercise "hard" (or even moderately) I am almost guaranteed to find some bleeding afterwards.

I realize that bleeding between periods can happen for many reasons, many that are scary and many that aren't that big of a deal . . .I am looking forward to getting my exam overwith and having some sort of answer from the doctor but I am worried in the meantime.

SInce many of us on peertrainer are women and many of us exercise, I guess I'm just wondering if any of you have had a similar type of bleeding before and if so, what turned out to be the cause?

Thanks for your responses ahead of time!

How old are you? If you are, say, in your late thirties or older this is not all that unusual as you move into perimenopause (it means that you aren't ovulating, usually). Also, uterine polyps can cause this -- they aren't a big deal, a D&C will take care of it.

here is some info from an article i found with google:

Pain and vaginal bleeding after exercise

Today I was at the gym running on the treadmill, and I felt this sharp pain in my lower abdomen as I ran. When I got home and used the restroom, there was some blood in my underwear. My period didn't start. This isn't the first time I have felt that pain but I thought it was just a side stitch. I am having other problems with my menstrual cycle, like breakthrough bleeding, and some cramping. I have an appointment with my gyn, but I'm really starting to get concerned. Any ideas?
Vaginal bleeding brought on by exercise or trauma is usually related to either disruption of the corpus luteum of the ovary (gland that forms after egg is ovulated each month) or anatomic abnormality inside the uterus such as a polyp or fibroid. The sudden pain and then the bleeding would go along with a ruptured corpus luteum of the ovary or even mid cycle ovulation if it occurred 14 days or less from when the NEXT menses was supposed to occur. Bleeding from anatomical causes would be more likely at age greater than 35. There are other causes such as local cervical irritation, endometriosis, endocrine bleeding etc., so you are right to get an exam to put the total picture together with the other ovulatory problems you describe.

I've had breakthrough bleeding mid-month maaaany times. Once, it didn't stop the entire month, and I bled for 28 days before having a DNC. It can be stress, it can be changes in hormone levels (like a new contraceptive), many things. I've known many women to have the same. Can't say I've ever noticed it getting worse after exercising though. But I wouldn't worry too much. Women "issues" are usually pretty easy to rectify. You're going to the doc, which is the right thing to do, and in the interim, try not to stress. I know, it's easier said than done. Good luck!

My mom had unpredictable bleeding when she was in menopause. But, I guess for menopause, it is not unusual. I have had break-thru bleeding, even if I take my pill a couple of hours late for few days. Had it happen when I had to work another shift, so my schedule for everything changed.

Same Problem

I just recently started having the same problem. Did you find out what came from your exam? The earliest I can get to the doctor is a month away. I've been searching the web and haven't heard anyone else having this exact problem. Just wondering if there were any explainations.

Can be caused by being on the pill

Happened to me once, while horseback riding. Only, I was/am still a virgin and basically I hit the saddle too hard and 'tore' my hymen a little bit = blood. Is it possible that it's the same for you?

bleeding after exercise

According to a nurse friend of mine, bleeding after exercise isn't uncommon and by itself not a symptom of a serious problem. She said it's often from fibroids, hormonal imbalance or urinary infection and that urinary infection doesn't always have symptoms you feel. You should of course have tests to be sure the bleeding's not from something more serious and that you're healthy; but to repeat, she said it isn't uncommon and that more often than not it's not from anything big, though it's sometimes difficult to get rid of. In my case it's hormonal, aggravated by fibroids I've always had. My doctor had started me on a thyroid supplement and I was taking low-dose hormones. The thyroid evidently stimulated a hormonal imbalance & bleeding after exercise began--scary until I knew the cause. I've quit the hormones and expect that my body eventually will balance. In the meantime the bleeding--even if it's just spotting--is just a bloody nuisance (no pun intended).

bleeding after exercise

I was bleeding more and more as I hit my late 30's. My doctor tried hormone replacement, but this year (now 43) I had a D&C and ablation and that helped a lot. I still seem to bleed most after a hard bike ride. The comment above on the corpus luteum seems to apply well to my situation. The Doc also found during my D&C that I had excess "fluffy tissue" from an overabundance of estrogen. This added some fleshy sloughing during the month... I am a triathlete and train pretty hard/compulsively. Before the procedures I noticed it was affecting my stamina, but now it's much better. It's not even a problem with the run and swim, but a hard bike (anything over 20 miles long and at 20+ mph) still gives me a few days in the red. I figure I'll just keep rolling though it though, in a few years it will all go away...

Since buying the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars last year for $770 million Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , auto-parts billionaire Shahid Khan has been trying to revive one of the NFL's worst teams. He's brought in new coaches and players. He's upgraded team facilities and added fan amenities
  • Philadelphia Eagles Jersey
  • . And this fall, he's sending the Jags onto the field with a dramatic new look: a menacing logo, a striking two-tone helmet, and a completely redesigned jersey. "It's got to look cool," Khan says of the attire. "We want to signify this is a new direction, a fresh start. We need more fans."

    Overhauling uniforms as a way to amp up enthusiasm and merchandise sales is an increasingly popular strategy in the pro-sports world. In recent years, teams such as the NBA's Brooklyn Nets
  • San Diego Chargers Jersey
  • , MLB's Toronto Blue Jays, and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks have generated buzz with eye-catching reboots, and the pace of such face-lifts only seems to be increasing. "Redesigns have always been a part of sports
  • San Francisco 49ers Jersey
  • , but things are different now," says Paul Lukas, creator of Uni Watch, a popular blog that covers "athletics aesthetics." For one thing, there's more at stake: Annual merchandise revenue for the NFL, MLB, and NBA is at record levels, with the NFL alone raking in an estimated $9.5 billion in total revenue
  • St. Louis Rams Jersey
  • . And teams must now work harder than ever to attract fans' endlessly divided attention.

    For the Jaguars' redesign, Khan worked with Nike, which last year began making NFL uniforms as part of a reported $1.1 billion deal that lasts through 2016
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey
  • . (The company is also behind the less-bold 2013 uniform tweaks for the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.) The goal was to create something flashy and different, but not too radical for either the team's supporters or the NFL, which has to approve all uniform-design changes (the league designs logos itself). "We err on the side of evolution, as opposed to revolution, which is where we have a healthy debate going with
  • Tennessee Titans Jersey
  • ," says Leo Kane, the NFL's senior vice president of consumer products. "We've encouraged them to push us."

    The helmet's unique design fades from matte black in front to shiny gold in the rear.
    Nike's Jags jersey is made out of
  • Washington Redskins Jersey
  • high-tech stretch material that hugs the torso for a sleek look but still offers the necessary range of motion.
    An armed-forces-style badge is a nod to Jacksonville's sizable military community.
    The belt adds hidden padding
  • 2015 Super Bowl XLIX
  • , which could help players avoid hip pointers, a common injury.
    When a player interlaces his hands just the right way, the gloves create a single image, the team logo.
    After the Jaguars requested a new look in March 2012
  • 2015New Style Noble Fashion
  • , the NFL's marketing group and team officials got to work on a creative brief that would guide the process. "We explored, What is the essence of the brand?" says Kane. "What is the personality? What do fans think?" One of the new uniform's key elements is a military-style badge that's attached to the front of the new jersey—a nod to the 12% of Jacksonville's population with ties to the armed forces
  • 2015 Pro Bowl
  • . The helmet, a groundbreaking design with a matte-black finish in front that fades into shiny gold in back, is meant to evoke the hunting style of a big cat, which stalks its prey in the shadows before pouncing. And the new team logo features a less-goofy jaguar head than the original, introduced in 1995. "We heard 'The cat has an overbite' or 'It looks like a cartoon,'" says the Jags' Khan. "You listen. That is vital. Where is the threshold where NFL you hit some nerves and offend fans? You want to respect the history, even though it may be short."
