Question: injury to female genitals
|jesuslove - Sun Oct 10, 2004 11:48 pm|
When I was 16 (19 years ago) I jumped a hurdle while running track and fell on it, this resulted in a large hematoma between my legs and I spent almost a month in the hospital. There is so much scar tissue that still swells and I am trying to find out more information but do not remember the medical terminology of this injury, what would it have been called and could this be any reason why I am haveing a hard time getting pregnant?

I am not exactly sure what it is that you suffered. Was it perineal hematoma? or vaginal hematoma?
What did your obgyn answer as to your questions?

I tried to discuss it with my obgyn, and he said the swelling on the right side had nothing to do with that....but he really was not listening. I guess it would of been a vaginal hematoma, I hit the right side of my vagina on the hurdle and had a hematoma about the size of a volleyball, the streching of the skin left alot of scar tissue...this is where it is swelling during sex but here lately the swelling has stayed even now with no sex for 4 days. Is there any where I can find more information on this injury in women and problems it has caused?

I can only suggest you seek consultation from a more experienced obgyn.
