Vaginal Bleeding Treatment
Self-Care at Home
Make sure that the bleeding is coming from the vagina and is not from the rectum or the urinary tract (blood only in the urine). You can insert a tampon into your vagina to confirm that the source of your bleeding is coming from the area of your vagina, cervix, and uterus.
If your bleeding is heavy, rest in bed.
Keep track of the number of pads or tampons you use so that you and your health care practioner can determine the amount of your bleeding.
Avoid taking aspirin because it may prolong bleeding.
