6 months ago, I had prolapse surgery which failed.  Scheduled for more surgery on May 10.  Rinsed off surgical area ( vaginal..... with showerhead that had black mold.  I didn't see the mold on the shower head until after I bathed.. Washed and rinseds the vaginal area again. Now I have some bright blood with small black specks on toilet paper and in toilet.   Please give advice.  Anyone? Matron?   Matron?  I am scared to death!  Please someone respond.

    Hello dorothy. What probably happened is that the mould has caught the vaginal wall and caused it to bleed. The vagina is a 'self cleaning' area because the vaginal secretions lubricate and clean it so there's little chance of an infection or any serious damage. Sit in a warm bath and let the clean water clean your vagina, unless you have a bidet of course.

      Thank you for responding. Matron. I cannot get in and out of a bath tub from a sitting position, due to two knee replacements.  I don't have a bidet.  I feel relieved that you said the vagina is self cleaning.  Any other suggestions would be appreciated.  My husband cleaned the shower head, but the thought of using it to further wash is scary, in case some mold is left.  You are so valued.  God bless you!

      I don't know if this would work but a bowl on the toilet that you could sit on perhaps? Another squirt with the shower head again after you've left it on for a minute to make sure there's nothing left in there but to be honest try not to worry xx

    Firstly, stop being in a panic! The most likely explanation is that the black dots are remains of stitches. My stitches came away 7 months after operation and appeared as black bits down the loo and on paper when I wiped. Make a GP or nurse appointment to get it checked out and give yourself peace of mind.
