Probably not: More likely you have an infection. I would see an ob/gyn if you're a woman or urologist if you're a man. Also check out this link for more info about bleeding after ejaculation. http://www.zocdoc.com/answers/12536/why-would-a-man-bleed-from-his-penis-after-ejaculation.

A 30-year-old member asked:

What is the difference in the various stages of colon cancer?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Joseph Roosth
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
Survival, but.....: Used to be, the short answer was simply survival risk with stage 1 having the best prognosis and stage IV the worst. While stages 1/2 still have the highest survival rates but improved surgical techniques and chemotherapy and i'd add lifestyle changes, have leveled the playing field greatly. Colon cancer, even advanced is often quite treatable.

It's only for some: Provenge (sipuleucel-t) is used in a very specific clinical situation with prostate cancer--definitely not indicated for everyone. The best treatment depends on the stage and grade of the cancer.

It is a complicated and very expensive treatment that has a small benefit for a very small group of patients. Most oncologist nationally use it very infrequently

No: Unprotected intercourse can put you at risk of sexually transmitted diseases as well as unwanted pregnancy. Especially with irregular periods it is difficult to estimate when are you ovulating and what are the most “fertility days” in your cycle.
