Summary

A 50-year-old gravida 2, para 1 presents to the emergency department with vaginal bleeding. She underwent a robotic-assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy and cystoscopy 29 days ago for symptomatic uterine fibroids. The patient reports experiencing a “popping” sensation during her first episode of intercourse following surgery. Subsequently she developed 8/10 abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, and vaginal pressure. She has no past medical history. Her past surgical history is significant for hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy. Her social history is significant for 20 pack-year history of tobacco use. She is not taking any medications and has no allergies.
