When to Seek Medical Care
The range of conditions that can cause vaginal bleeding are diverse, range in seriousness, and vary based on the age, fertility, and medical history of the patient.
Vaginal bleeding after menopause is never normal. If a woman has gone through menopause and has vaginal bleeding, she should see her health care professional as soon as possible.
Very heavy bleeding during a woman's period or frequent bleeding between periods warrants evaluation by a health care professional.
Bleeding after intercourse should be evaluated by a health care professional.
If a woman has vaginal bleeding that is associated with weakness or feeling faint or light-headed, or if a woman actually faints, she should go to a hospital emergency department for care.
