Our expert says:
Bleeding should always be checked out by a professional medical practitioner – GP/Gynecologist. There could be several reasons for bleeding – and it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. The fact that you are complaining of bleeding and pain furthermore stresses the need to have it checked out. It could be something not severe but rather know what you are dealing with than remain guessing.
