No: In a world that allows free speech, there are people who make political capital and money by making false, inflammatory statements about the things that are most personal and private.

Yes: Your periods on the birth control pill are artificially brought on by discontinuing the pill for a short time each month. If there is little build up of the lining of your uterus the rest of the month, there will be little or no bleeding. This is more likely to happen when you have been on the pill for a while.

Good luck and well wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It shouldn't: if you are having irregular periods, it seems more likely the bleeding has something to do with that, instead of rough sex. Post-coital bleeding is due to local trauma to your vagina, rather than a hormonal imbalance. Make an appointment with your OB GYN to get to the cause for the bleeding ...Read more
