Uterine vascular lesions are considered as a rare complication of gynecologic and obstetric procedures. Occurrence of Uterine vascular lesions such as pseudoaneurysms, acquired arteriovenous malformation, arteriovenous fistula and direct vessel ruptures seems to be more frequently than it has been mentioned in the literatures or previously thought. The delayed diagnosis of this situation may result in life-threatening hemorrhage. Herein, we present three rare cases who presented with uterine bleeding after gynecologic procedures. Although the hemorrhage stopped spontaneously, a massive hemorrhage reoccurred. We would like to emphasize Doppler ultrasound scan as the primary screening modality and also describe transcatheter angioembolization as a good treatment opportunity for these conditions.
