Re: Vaginal Bleeding For Over 6 Months

The bleeding is highly unlikely to be related to an abortion that took place ten months before the bleeding started.
Offhand, some possibilities for it include a cervical polyp, cervical ectropion, or cervical dysplasia (the bleeding is likely cervical, not uterine, in origin, because it occurs after sex).

Only the last possibility is serious: it can lead to cervical cancer if left untreated.
No one here can offer a definitive diagnosis based on a description of the bleeding.
As unhelpful as it may be, the best advice any of us can possibly give is that she must seek medical attention. When faced with an unwanted pregnancy, she took action and sought prompt medical attention. Surely she can do the same when faced with the possibility of cervical cancer (although it's likely something less serious).

Best of luck.

Re: Vaginal Bleeding For Over 6 Months

I have had similar issues myself as a result of endometriosis, and painful condition that causes bleeding and periodic pain. Has she continued to have here monthly period during this time?

There are many female issues that can lead to the symptoms you describe. The only way to diagnose which it may be, is for her to see a doctor. May I ask why she is so reluctant to do so?

Once women begin to having sexual relations, she is obligated to provide herself with womens health care. It is something we all have to do, and while none of us like it particularly, it is something we must to our entire lives. Perhaps you could offer to go along with her for support. She could see a woman doctor, as many women are more comfortable with a female.

Bleeding for such a long period without treatment could be leading her to a more serious situation. These things seldom just disappear by themselves, they only get worse. It is very kind of you to be here seeking advice for her, and I hope you are able to get her into the doctor sooner rather than later. What is the situation with her mother? Could she tell her?

Best to you
