Bleeding after sex

Hey ladies, I'm freaking out a bit over here, and am wondering if anyone else had experienced this, or has an idea of what the heck is going on.

My main squeeze just left for the evening, concerned. We ended the evening with some bedroom activities, and when we each went to the washroom after, we found that I had bled a lot. Not period type blood, but thinner, redder, I-just-cut-myself type of blood. Both our midsections were a mess, my bedsheets are a mess. He was more concerned than grossed out, thank God, and I'm now worried. My period was 2 weeks ago. Thoughts?

I would definitely go to your Dr. ASAP. It sounds like you were not in any pain and you're not in menopause yet, so it was most likely blood from your uterus (as opposed to thinning skin). I think a lot of benign things can cause this, but one of them is uterine cancer. Not to freak you out -- it can be SO many things. But just get to a Dr. and get it checked out.

Hopefully some people with some medical knowledge will weigh in too.

On another note - I've not been in her much for awhile so I don't know if you posted about it, but, GOOD JOB ON THE "MAIN SQUEEZE!" Last I recall you were having some promising first and second dates with a couple guys after a pretty discouraging spell of dating.

Re: Bleeding after sex

@Ursula there are lots of things that can cause this. Stop thinking the worst case scenario.
Donít freak out, just go to your doctor as soon as possible.

I'm jumping on this bandwagon.

Re: Bleeding after sex

I had a pretty funny thought for when you find out it is nothing bad. Based off your description, I bet he thought he was doing a pretty good job prior to the discovery!

Re: Bleeding after sex

There's lots of reasons for this hon, from completely innocuous to potentially serious, so get yourself to the doctor TODAY.

Keep us posted x

Re: Bleeding after sex

It is most likely something completely benign, like a vaginal tear (from lack of lubrication) or a polyp, an infection, an irritation of the cervix, etc. But very rarely it is a sign of something more ominous. So, get an appointment to see your doctor this week. You and your main squeeze will feel better knowing what's going on.

Good luck!!!

Re: Bleeding after sex

Ursula, I just went through this a few months ago and it turned out to be a polyp on my cervix. I was not sexually active at the time but I don't have periods anymore and I was having unexplained bleeding. It's most likely something very simple and benign.

Re: Bleeding after sex

Thanks guys! Not going to lie, Iím concerned, as this is very unusual for my body. It was weird though, I thought I had a yeast infection about 3 weeks ago, so I bought some stuff to treat it at the drugstore (I used to get these infections all the time). This time around though, instead of making me feel better, it made me cramp. Now Iím wondering if theyíre related.

At any rate, I have an appointment with my doctor Thursday at 11am. I shouldnít have Googled, because when you Google, almost anything will point to the possibility of cancer.

@WorkingWife, no Iím not in any pain, although Iím crampy now and was last night too. Could have just been the power of thought though. And thank-you for the well-wishes! I had mentioned something about seeing someone in a couple previous posts, but we werenít officially official until very recently. But heís a good man, and has a similar personality and lifestyle to me, and I feel pretty lucky to have found him. :-)

Will keep you updated, and thanks for easing my mind a little!

The fact that you had a yeast infection makes me think your vaginal tissues are irritated and that's why you bled. The cramping can happen with any kind of an infection. If the treatment cleared up the itching and burning most likely it was a yeast infection. But if not, make sure your doctor knows so he/she can check you for a different infection. BV can definitely cause irritation bad enough to cause bleeding. I wouldn't use any creams tonight so that your doctor can get a good look and be able to take a culture if needed.

If you are using any type of lubricant, I'd suggest finding one without glycerin as that ingredient is known to cause an overgrowth of yeast as the glycerin is like sugar which feeds the yeast.

I'm feeling very reassured that this is something benign now that I know this additional info.

Re: Bleeding after sex

This exact same thing happened to me back when I was 45 years old.

I wasn't yet aware that I'd entered the fabulous world of Peri-menopause (but I was about to learn it). My then long-term boyfriend and I were celebrating a year together, and I'd put together a romantic night at a hotel in a bordering state along with dinner plans and some dancing, etc. etc.

The evening went wonderfully and just like you, much later in the evening at the hotel during 'clean up,' we saw all this blood. We didn't know WHO had possibly been cut or hurt as I wasn't due for my period or anything and I kept thinking it had to be him. LOL. We were clueless but after cleaning up, I discovered it was indeed coming from me. A cramp-less, sudden, completely out-of-cycle light period I had NO explanation for and had NOT anticipated whatsoever.

I learned a few days later I had entered Peri-menopause. I'm betting your situation is nothing more than that.

Once you start seeing your worth, you'll find it harder to stay around people who don't.

Boy, I hope you're correct, or that this is something else innocuous like BV or some other type of infection. I know that my Mom entered peri-menopause early. But, I leave for my doctor in about 20 minutes, and am starting to **** bricks. My doctor is a good doctor, but I'm not a fan of going to see him.
