What are the multiple causes of or for pain&bleeding during sex, & passing blood clots after sex??

Have you had any treatments there. You need a pregnancy test and some basic cultures at least. The problem may be something like a polyp and easy to take care of. But your doc also needs to do some tests to be sure not anything cancerous.. ...Read more
