Hi huberth. I have not experienced this but am here to support you. I would suggest ing Dr. Pacik’s office to discuss this further and receive any recommendations regarding the bleeding if you haven’t already. I have no medical knowledge at all. As a friend, and if I were in a similar situation, I would stop dilating during bleeding and monitor it. When I was clear it stopped, I would resume with a smaller sized dilator. Ladies, what are your thoughts here? Again, please know we are all here to support you.
Bleeding is uncommon when dilating. Tissues can be stretched too quickly resulting in small tears that result in bleeding. It is for this reason that it is important to always start small and work towards larger dilators using lubes. It is unlikely that this will cause scarring and problems.
