Sure wish I knew: What you were asking. The cervix uteri connects internally to the womb, but protrudes into the upper vagina. Bleeding may be from a crumbling portion of the (outer) exocervix. Can be worse with intercourse. It should improve with treatment. ...Read more

All my pap smears normal. Last one 8 months ago - normal. Pink discharge 9 weeks postpart. Could it be cervical cancer? Waiting for pap results

Unlikely: For females that have had normal pap smears and one as recent as one year, it is very unlikely to have cervical cancer. However, it is normal to have discharge postpartum.
