Bleeding after Running
What does it mean to bleed after your run?
Answer by Dominique:
What a question!
You sound very worried.
I have been bleeding after a few of my runs as well.
I have had bleeding nipples, thighs so heavily chafed that they were bleeding, a few black toenails and last week, when I was running in the dark and did not see a low-hanging branch, a bleeding head!
If it is vaginal bleeding you are talking about, there may be different reasons for it, some quite innocent. In that case, and any bleeding that you cannot explain, it is best to just visit your physician. That's really the best person to find out what is going on and to put your worries to rest.
Best of luck.
