Which body part or function is involved in Hemorrhage (vaginal bleeding)?

Normal vaginal bleeding, or menstruation (also called a period), is part of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It typically occurs every 21 to 35 days and lasts from two to seven days. Abnormal vaginal bleeding or hemorrhage is bleeding from the vagina that appears:

  • During periods
  • After intercourse
  • Between menstruation, but is heavier than normal or that lasts more than common or more than seven days
  • Postmenopause


Hemorrhage in the vagina has various causes, such as fibroids, endometrial polyps, uterus infection, pregnancy, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, kept products of conception after pregnancy, or tumor in the uterus, endometrial and cervical cancers. A lot of women experience abnormal bleeding between their menstruation at some point in their lives. Hemorrhage in the vagina occurs when you have:

Massive bleeding during the first few weeks after delivery (postpartum) or after an abortion is normal because the uterus has not contracted to the pre-pregnancy size or because fetal tissue resides in the uterus.
