Why did I bleed during sex? I've got no stds, it also wasn't my period, but there was quite a lot of blood, I've also got lower abdomen pain afterwards.

Why did I bleed during sex? I've got no stds, it also wasn't my period, but there was quite a lot of blood, I've also got lower abdomen pain afterwards.

Blood=tissue damage: Any active non-menstrual bleeding/spotting you have after intercourse would reflect some type of injury to tissues exposed to the mechanical forces involved. You might see a small bleeding site with a close self exam (lighted mirror) or a doc could locate the site. If it is minimal and you keep the areas clean it will likely stop.If you are soaking pads you need to be evaluated. ...Read more

There is: Treatment for dysmenorrhea (painful periods) which essentially AVOIDS the pain rather than treating pain after it occurs. These include HORMONAL therapy.

5 days late on period light bleeding, brown gooey clots and severe lower abdominal pain, tender to touch nipples?

Could be serious.: If you are at risk for pregnancy, it is possible that you are pregnant. But the severe abdominal pain makes me concerned that you could have a tubal or ectopic pregnancy. Please get evaluated! You will get a pregnancy test, an exam, and perhaps an ultrasound in the process. Because a tubal pregnancy can be potentially life-threatening, please be seen. Remember, it's my job to worry! Lgromkomd. ...Read more

25, no kids, had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 6 weeks and abdominal pain since, doesn't feel like period cramps but the pain is less severe during period. Normal?

Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD: Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD's contain progesterone and are usually well tolerated except in women who have not had children. If the uterus contracts, and forces the IUD to move into the cervical canal, cramps are going to occur. If this continues, see your healthcare provider for an ultrasound to see if the IUD has lodged in the canal. Removal is usually necessary if this happens. ...Read more
