Condoms Work: Condoms can be up to 98% effective at preventing sexually transmitted diseases when used correctly.

I continue to bleed during sex. I took antibiotics for cervicitis but I am still bleeding during it. Its very embarrassing. What could be the problem?

I continue to bleed during sex. I took antibiotics for cervicitis but I am still bleeding during it. Its very embarrassing. What could be the problem?

A few ideas: Depending on how long you've been sexually active for, it could be that you have an ectropious cerivx, or that your cervix is reacting to infection with hpv (no medication other than vaccine for this).

I have had LSIL since 2014, getting paps every 6 months. Just recently been diagnosed with cervicitis because of spotting after sex, is this cancer?

I have had LSIL since 2014, getting paps every 6 months. Just recently been diagnosed with cervicitis because of spotting after sex, is this cancer?

You need testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia, if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor and make sure you are tested and perhaps treated for STDs. Your partner also needs exam and maybe treatment. But cancer is very unlikely. ...Read more

You : You should definitely be reevaluated by your doctor. You could be dealing with a bacterial, or yeast infection, and possibly even an std that is causing irritation and bleeding of your vaginal mucosa (tissue). Also if there is a possibility that you are pregnant, please take a pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more

See an OB/GYN: The doctor who made the diagnosis of cervicitis is in the best position to determine what is going on.

Discuss this with the ob/gyn. ...Read more
