urgent: i&#39 m bleeding
My friend who is 20 years old started bleeding from her behind about 2 weeks ago. She then also started bleeding from the front. She gets pain in her lower back and in the front just above her private part. There is no smell or burn but the bleeding is getting heavier and she is concerned. She gave natural birth 10 months ago to a boy - what could the problem be because she is worried and doesn' t have money to pay R300 for a doctor.

There sounds like a problem with the uterus or cervix. She will have to see a doctor to find out what excatly the problem is. If she cannot afford private doctors, state hospitals and clinics are free.
