No!: Please see your gynecologist for a pap smear and possible endometrial biopsy as soon as possible! postcoital bleeding is never normal and could be a harbinger of cancer, vaginitis, sexually transmitted diseases or polyps of the cervix. Best of luck! ...Read more

Pregnancy: There is a very very small chance that a pregnancy occurs after a tubal ligation. However pregnancy symptoms do not occur in the day after intercourse. Unsure what the postcoital spotting was related to. Recommend seeing your doctor. You might discuss evaluating your BTL with a hysterosalpingogram to ensure occlusion of the tubes for reassurance. ...Read more

Not pregnant: Women do not ovulate 2 weeks after a delivery, so you will not be pregnant. Bleeding of and on for several weeks after a delivery is normal. It is generally considered a good idea to wait at lest 4 weeks after a delivery before resuming relations because the risk for a uterine infection is so very high during that time frame. Good luck. ...Read more

Heavy periods: There are multiple options for heavy periods. Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people. There is also a drug called Lysteda that contains no hormones which will help others. If you are done having children discuss the option of an endometrial ablation. ...Read more

Possible related: Tubal ligation usually does not affect the regularity of your period. Having bleeding in between your normal periods is called intermenstrual bleeding. If the blood flow to your ovaries was compromised during your tubal ligation, which is actually uncommon, this could make intermenstrual bleeding occur. More than likely it is by chance that your periods are now different. ...Read more
