Question: lower abdominable pain and irregular bleeding

 kt7373 - Sat Apr 16, 2005 12:02 am

Hi. I'm twenty-one years old and just got done with my period a week ago and am now having very light irregular bleeding and lower abdominable pain, and overall not feeling well. I'm just worried because I just started working in a lab- picking up samples and handling them-( still in the containers) of cultures for poss. stds..etc.. (I'm sure the chances of that are very slim), should I see a doctor about this though?

User avatar Hello kt7373,

Most sexually transmittable diseases are spread through vaginal, oral or anal sexual contact, birth (mother to baby) or contact with bodily fluids onto mucous membranes of the body such as the mouth or eyes. Do you think you’ve come in contact with some of the fluids you’ve been handling? If you haven’t had these done yet, you need to get your Hepatitis series and TB tests done as well as a complete bloodwork-up just to make sure you’re healthy. I would highly recommend a complete check-up if you’re not feeling well, you don’t want to have a low immunity in your line of work.
