I always have Virginal bleeding during sex and after sex. Pls ma what are d causes or does it also mean that I am pregnant?

I always have Virginal bleeding during sex and after sex. Pls ma what are d causes or does it also mean that I am pregnant?

Coital bleeding: Bleeding during and after sex can be caused by injury to the vagina or cervix, a cervical or endometrial polyp or tumor, and/or endometrial breakage. A GYN MD visit can examine these area when the bleeding occurs and determine the source. Pregnancy is determined by a positive pregnancy test and not bleeding symptoms.

Does not: Sound like you are pregnant. Bleeding after sex has nothing to do with pregnancy. It usually has to do with rough sex with micro tears. It takes the average couple 6 months to conceive and usually. Bit longer after a progesterone IUD has been removed so you are within normal and not showing signs of infertility. Relax and enjoy sex and just let it happen

Pain: Cramping after sex is common in pregnancy. It is usually caused by the uterus. Certainly deep penetration may cause some discomfort with your issue, but it should get better right after sex ends. It might be time to teach your partner that there's no need to always penetrate deeply.

What to do if I have heavy bleeding over but pain during sex could it be an ectopic pregnancy?

What to do if I have heavy bleeding over but pain during sex could it be an ectopic pregnancy?

Painful sex.: Please start by going to see a gyn physician. A painful sex in early pregnancy can range from nothing very serious to potentially life threatening conditons like ectopic pregnancy. A ruptured ovarian cyst early in pregnancy can also cause pelvic pain which may get worse during sex. Please don't forget that a pelvic infection can also cause both pain and vaginal bleeding. Again go see a physician.

See a doctor: At 52, you may have menopausal changes to your vagina with thinning of the lining resulting in some mild bleeding after intercourse or after having anything inside your vagina. However, any significant bleeding is not normal so see a GYN for further evaluation.

I had sexual intercourse on the 5th day of my periods. I took ec pill on 7th day. Have bleeding from 13th day to 15th day, am I pregnant?

I had sexual intercourse on the 5th day of my periods. I took ec pill on 7th day. Have bleeding from 13th day to 15th day, am I pregnant?

Sounds like no: We would suspect pregnancy from the lack of periods not from increased vaginal bleeding. Most likely you are just having irregular bleeding after taking emergency contraception which would disrupt the normal hormonal balance. You can always check a home pregnancy test though to be sure. See your doctor to start long term birth control and prevent this in the future.
