Is blood in discharge normal?
I have been online to see what could cause this and some symtoms are cervical cancer and cervical polyps and cervictitics not sure of the spelling. My question is... Is it normal to have blood in discharge?Does it mean that there is something wrong?
There are many causes of bloody discharge. It runs the spectrum from something as severe as cervical or uterine cancer to something simple as a cervical infection. You should see your healthcare provider to determine the cause of your abnormal bleeding.
