When to Seek Medical Care

The ranges of conditions that can cause vaginal bleeding are diverse, range in seriousness, and vary based on your age, fertility, and medical history.

Vaginal bleeding after menopause is never normal. If you have gone through menopause and have vaginal bleeding , see your health care provider as soon as possible.

Very heavy bleeding during your period or frequent bleeding between periods warrants evaluation by your health care provider.

Bleeding after intercourse, especially after vigorous sex, does occur in some women. If this occurs only occasionally, it is probably nothing to worry about. Evaluation by your health care provider is advisable, especially if the bleeding happens repeatedly.

If you have vaginal bleeding that is associated with weakness, feeling faint or light-headed, or actual faint, go to a hospital emergency department for care.

 
Self-Care at Home

Self-treatment is not appropriate for Cancer under most circumstances. Without medical treatment, the Cancer will continue to grow and spread. Eventually vital body organs will not be able to function properly because the cancer will take their oxygen and nutrients, crowd them out, or injure them. The result is very often death.

Although self-treatment is inappropriate, there are things you can do to reduce the physical and mental stresses of your Cancer and its treatment.

Maintaining good nutrition is one of the best things you can do.

You may lose your appetite during your treatment.

Common side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea, vomiting, and sores inside the mouth, can make eating difficult.

However, people who eat well, taking in enough calories and protein, will have an easier time keeping their strength and energy during the therapy. They are also better able to tolerate the side effects of therapy.

Your Cancer specialist (oncologist) or gynecologist may be able to recommend a nutritionist who can provide suggestions for keeping up your calorie and protein intake.

The following lifestyle changes may help keep you stronger and more comfortable during treatment:

A.   Physical activity will also help keep your strength and energy level up. Engage in mild physical activity that is comfortable but doesn't wear you out.

B.   Rest is equally important. Get plenty of sleep each night and rest during the day if you need to.

C.   Quit smoking.

D.   Avoid alcohol. You may not be able to drink alcohol with some of the medication you are taking. Be sure to ask your health care provider.
