Are you absolutely positive it was you? I once had sex with a guy who has a small tear on his foreskin and my God there was a lot of blood, it was like a horror film!
If you are sure it was you, is your period due? If not, then yes, I'd give the doctor a call and get checked out.

My sister had this, absolutely terrifying, called an ambulance it was that much blood. No pain though. Turned out to be a laceration on her cervix that required surgery shock It wasn't particularly serious though, try not to worry but Go and get checked.

You've probably got a cervical erosion which is a terrifying name for what is a benign issue (cells which should be above the cervix end up on and below the cervix and bleed very easily). You should have an internal and a smear test and may need a colposcopy to be safe - if you have one and it's causing you issues like this you're best off having it cauterised. Being on the pill is one of the main causes - are you on the pill?

Don't panic as it knows st probability is nothing serious.

Go see the doctor though.

What contraceptive do you use?

TammySwansonTwo Tue 26-Sep-17 16:02:11

The doctor may have missed it, or it may be a new thing if it's never happened before. I would not overly panic at this point - just get checked out smile

Could you be pregnant? I had this when I was pregnant with my first after sex, about 5 days before my period was due

MrsJamesAspey Tue 26-Sep-17 16:05:47

I had this with the coil, was gushing blood for weeks, go and see your GP it'll be fine

It was a few years ago so my memory is a bit vague. I think the coil had moved, the GP told me to go back in a week if I was still bleeding, I think it lasted 10-14 days but this was unusually long.

Male here.

I once had a blood vessel burst somewhere in my urethra during sex and it started to bleed profusely. Bright red, arterial blood. It lasted a few minutes then stopped; so suddenly it was as if it had never happened. The doctor did some tests and said he couldn't find anything wrong and that I should only start to worry if it happened again - it never has.

It was a long time ago but, thinking about it, there's a lot of blood at high pressure down there during an erection. So, if a blood vessel does burst in that area, it's going to be messy.

Anyway, this can definitely happen to a male, so don't assume it can only be your problem.

Had it been a while since you've had sex until the weekend.

I had this - it was a cervical polyp - totally benign and nothing to worry about - doctor whipped it off in 3 seconds.

Go see the dr and get your peace of mind back

Yes, definitely from me. I hadn't felt anything odd but was changing position when I saw blood. I withdrew fully and the blood continued to drip steadily out of me for two or three minutes.

I'm not normally bothered by the sight of my own blood but it was pretty disturbing. My - longterm - girlfriend wasn't too impressed either, it was at the same time as the Don't Die of Ignorance adverts...

Well, bleeding after sex is one of the symptoms of cervical cancer, but you said the doc looked at your cervix recently, so try not to panic.
Do go back and get it checked out though.

I had a friend who had this happen to her. She went to the hospital and it was something relatively benign - a burst cyst, I think?

I've had post-coital bleeding before, which the doctor deduced was caused by hormonal birth control, but it was a very small amount of blood - nothing like you were describing.

Gorgosparta Wed 27-Sep-17 05:58:46

Thia happenes to me a few times.

I had scans and a blood tests. They couldnt find a cause. Definitely not cancer. They said it was hormonal. It stopped after a few months.

If its bad see a doctor. But dont panic about it being something really bad. There could be loads of non life threatening reasons.

Curious. Hasn't he referred you for other tests?

BTW, your post isn't highlighted as you've capitalised your name, whereas it's all lower case in the OP.
