Patient :Two days ago I was involved in a minor motorcycle accident. I suffered from a concussion. I dont remember anything for 8 hours after the accident although I was apparently awake, walking, and acting fine with the exception of constantly repeating myself and doing the same things over and over again. My friends said I was in good spirits but had the memory of a gold fish. We were going slow on the motorcycle around a corner and the back tire slipped on wet road, we slid and rolled into a ditch. Other than ripped pants and having a difficult time catching my breath for a moment I was ok. Until we all realized I had suffered from a concussion 8 hours later. I should have gone to the hospital but am unemployed at the moment. On the day of the accident I was 2 days late on getting my period. The morning after the accident I had vaginal bleeding used two tampons throughout the day but Ive had no bleeding since then. Now I am wondering what happened. Is it normal to have vaginal bleeding after an accident? Is it possible it wasnt my period afterall?
