Bleeding after sex?

(6 Posts)

I have NCd for this as a few of my relatives/friends are on here and just in case they know my name I'd rather they didn't know this unless I choose to tell them in person.

The last 2 times I've had sex it has bled. The first time was only a minimal amount so just ignored it and moved on. The second time was today however and there was enough that it pooled and stained the bed.

I am really not sure what could be causing this. To give you some information about me/my situation.

+ I am 24 years old.
+ I had a baby 15 months ago.
+ I have the implant in
+ I have been with my partner for 6 years and I was his first and I had a sexual health check about 4 years ago from my last and only other sexual partner.

I'm giving you this information so you may be able to see a similarity in what happened to you/what might be wrong with me.

I'm a bit worried as this has never happened to me before other than a tiny bit after the first time after having DD but other than that it's never happened even during pregnancy.

Can anyone please shed any light?

Considering going to the GP on Monday about it if I can get a damn appointment, that is.

It might be just an inflamed cervix, touch of erosion etc but the absolute best advice, as you know yourself, is to book in for a double app with you GP, telling them at the time you book that you might need examined.

If you can't get an app with the GP try your local Family Planning clinic.

I get odd bits of this and used, before they changed methods, to have endless trouble with blood in smear tests.

Nurse says it's cervical erosion as a result of years on the mini pill.

Does sound like a cervical erosion but best to get it checked out.

Elephants... how many years have you been on the mini pill?

I'm on Cerazette and am having similar symptoms.

I had this and in my case was due to a small polyp on my cervix. I had it removed and all back to normal now. It was tested and was entirely benign. The doctor said it was like a skin tag but on my cervix.

Probably worth a trip to the GP to get it checked out
