I don't want to try to make bleeding sexy, sorry

For the past ~7 years, I have bled/spotted maybe 75% of the time I have sex. As a single person who has sex with new partners occasionally, this sucks. My OBGYN assures me it's not indicative of any sort of problem other than fragile cervical tissue, but short of putting a towel down every time (ugh), is there anything I can do to make this stop?

Bleeding following abdominal surgery: how bad is this?

Husband had an emergency gallbladder operation a week ago. He was staying put and feeling less and less pain, until this weekend he went outside, up and down a bunch of stairs, and lifted some heavy stuff. He started bleeding from either the belly button or the incision (they are very close) yesterday, it happened again last night, and is happening again this morning. How serious is this and what could this mean? [more inside]

Low platelet count

Is anyone running a low plt count? How low? Mine is 130 and think to see a hematologist soon. My count was always kinda low but this is the lowest. Two other times it was 127 and 135 and the rest was above 150. Do you have experience with this? Did you see a doc? What did they find?

How can I get to be less squeamish about blood?

Just talking too much about bleeding, shots, or giving blood can make me woozy. This sucks. What can I do to get a stronger stomach about such things? My only thought is desensitization through completely horrific google image searches, but I'd rather there be some other ideas.

Can These Shoes Be Fixed?

I bought some flats. The first time I wore them, they dug into the back of my ankles (on both feet), and made them bleed - it took my feet about two weeks to heal. Is there a way to fix this? [more inside]

Why am I having the longest period ever?

This is going to be gross: I'm a 25 year old female. Until now I have had extremely regular periods which last 6 days with a 12-18 hour gap on day 5 (no idea why). I am not on any kind of birth control and have not been on any kind of birth control for over a year. This month's period began on the standard day, except now I'm going on my 14th straight day of bleeding. [more inside]

Cut while skydiving will a person bleed faster?

So my buddy and I watched that old Keanu Reeves film Point Break the other night, and we got to talking. We're thinking that more air pressure causes you to bleed at a more furious pace. So if someone's in a knife fight in a plane, is cut, say across the arm, then jumps out of the airplane to parachute to the ground - will they bleed to death before they hit the ground because the air pressure is causing them to bleed so quickly? It doesn't have to be skydiving, it could be on like, Everest. Will you bleed crazy fast higher up? I know that there are a lot of variables here, but I'm just curious if the thinking is sound.

Oh, okay, I wasn't aware that anal bleeding was such a pedestrian concern-- thanks, Doc.

TMI Medical Filter: Previously, I had sometimes crippling stomach pain. That went away. Now I'm, uh, bleeding. Rectally. Um. Yeah. But my HMO doesn't seem to care all that much. MetaFilter is not my doctor, but I can't go to my doctor to ask... should I skip my HMO and go to the hospital? [more inside]

My nose is bleeding

About three weeks ago I had a nasty cold. Headache, congestion, nose running 24-7. Since then, I wake up every morning to blow my nose out, thick, green, blood speckled mucus having accumulated there. This morning I blew my nose and afterwards a fresh stream of blood poured out. I've never had a nosebleed in my life nor have I ever stuffed any junk up there. Does this warrant a visit to the doctor? ps: I'm not a hypochondriac, it's just that I've never been sick.
