Bleeding after sex, not heavy, lasts between an hour to 24 hours. Had pap and hpv/std tests for this and all are normal. Any ideas? Gave birth 8/2012.

In brief: Cervicitis?

Bleeding after sex is often a sign of inflammation of the cervix, i.
e. cervicitis. Although some cervicitis is due to STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia), those tests are highly reliable so probably not a concern. Cervicitis is normally diagnosed by direct exam. In addition to the tests (pap, HPV, STD), did your doctor say anything about the appearance of your cervix or the cause of bleeding?

In brief: Need to examine

Bleeding after sex is usually due to a lesion on the cervix and that can only be ascertained by examining you.
You should consult your gynecologist as it is usually a treatable condition.
