Patient Comments: Vaginal Bleeding - Intercourse

Have you experienced vaginal bleeding after intercourse? Did you see a doctor? What was the diagnosis?

On most occasions I bleed during intercourse and I also bled when I had my smear test done. It seems that every time something gets in touch with my cervix wall I have a bleed. I had a blood test done for liver, thyroid, kidney function and Hb level; everything came back within the level. Also my clotting ratio is good. Smear test and STD test came negative and pelvic ultra-scan was clear too. But I still wonder why I bleed when I am with my partner, he is naturally worried he is hurting me, but there is no pain involved at all.

One time when I had sex with my boyfriend, I had vaginal bleeding, so we stopped. Then I think it lasted less than 2 hours, but the bleeding never came back. Also that time I got drunk but my partner was not. He also used his finger inside.

It was my first time to have sexual intercourse using a condom with my partner. After sex, as I wiped my vagina with tissue, there was also blood with the lubrication. After 5 months, there is still blood after intercourse.

I have been having intercourse with this guy on and off 5 months now and every now and then I bleed during sex. The vaginal bleeding normally happens when we take a break for a while and when we have sex for the first time after a break. It is usually a lot at first then gets lighter and goes away eventually. There is absolutely zero pain. It is just kind of an annoying and kills the mood. I am scared because I heard it can be anything from tearing in my walls, an STD, or even cancer and I'm only 19. Also I'm on the pill and have been on it since I was 16. He is my second partner and we use a condom 90 percent of the time.

I have undergone total hysterectomy and after the surgery I bleed sometimes after a sexual intercourse.

The doctor said I had some bacteria and that was what caused the vaginal bleeding. I was prescribed some medicines.

It was my first time seeing blood after intercourse and it worried me because I saw my menstruations two weeks back. But I was having abdominal pains before entering intercourse.
