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.

    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.
