Spotting after Car Accident

I was involved in a car accident on Saturday evening. We drove into a herd of cows on a backroad from Potgietersrus to Burgersfort. I have no injuries except for the fact that my stomach is bruised from the seatbelt. My concern is that I have abdominal pains and spotting. My period is only due in 2 weeks. Is it possible that my period started due to shock or should I go and have it checked out?

I doubt that this has caused your period to start early. You may have caused some bruising to the uterus. I would suggest that you have it checked.

Best wishes

Hi Eve

Goodness, a herd of cows, you say! My word.... :-)

Glad you're ok... Maybe it's from the shock, don't know. I don't want to scare you, but is there any chances of internal bleeding? I think you should get checked out by a doctor. You can't take any chances.

Good luck!
