6 Reasons Why You Bleed After Sex ✔

November 14, 2019

6 Reasons Why You Bleed After Sex When you flick on the lights after sex, chances
are you do a quick scan of the damage you and your partner left behind. Some clothes, maybe a condom, a few toys,
unidentifiable stains, and sometimes blood. “Bleeding after sex is actually not uncommon,”
says Constance Young, MD, Assistant Professor, Division of Gynecologic Specialty Surgery
at Columbia University Medical Center. There’s a whole bunch of reasons why you might
have a little blood on the sheets after sex, and it’s usually not a huge deal unless it
becomes a regular thing. “You should be concerned if you’re bleeding
after sex every time you have intercourse, and it seems like the bleeding is heavier
over time,” Dr. Young says. This could be a sign that you have a serious
medical condition, including cervical cancer or an STI. “It is always wise to rule out a serious health
condition before you assume it’s something easy,” she says. Make a mental note about how much you’re bleeding
after sex, even if you just notice it once, so you can figure out if it’s actually A Thing. The only way to figure out why you’re bleeding
after sex (and eventually stop it) is to go to your gynecologist and get a pap smear,
chat about your contraception, and possibly take some other tests, too. “You need to identify what is causing the
bleeding before you can look at solutions,” Dr. Young says. To give you an idea of the possibilities,
here are some of the reasons why you might bleed after sex. Before we get into the reasons of bleeding

for bleeding after sex. You had rougher-than-usual sex: Most often, you’re bleeding after sex because
there’s a scrape or abrasion on the wall of your vagina, Dr. Young says. Your cervix can bleed a little, too, if it
gets hit it too hard. Poor, vagina. You have a vaginal infection: Yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, and
other infections can cause “cervicitis,” which is just a fancy term for inflammation in your
cervix, says Raquel Dardik, MD, clinical associate professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
at NYU Langone Medical Center. Even though you might not be in horrible pain
when you have a vaginal infection, it’s usually a good idea to take a break from sex until
you’re healed. Your IUD got bonked: “There are a number of different things that
can irritate your cervix and cause bleeding during or after sex,” Dr. Young says. If you have an IUD in place, for example,
the string can bother your cervix when you have sex, which causes bleeding after sex,
too, Dr. Young says. Your period is en route. Periods cause bleeding, have you heard? If you’re about to get your period (or it
just ended), it’s entirely possible that your partner went up in there and got it for you,
but again, you won’t be able to tell if it’s period blood until you see a doctor, Dr. Dardik
says. You need a little lube: Friction from an un-lubricated condom can
cause bleeding during sex, Dr. Young says. Even if you’re not using a condom, bleeding
can mean you’re just not lubricated enough, and you may want to consider a lubricant,
she says. It’s a warning sign of something else: Another huge reason why you should see a doctor
if the bleeding after sex becomes regular: It can be a sign of cervical cancer or an
STI, Dr. Young says. Bleeding could be a sign that there are abnormal
cells in the cervix, or that there are sores inside your vagina from STIs, Dr. Dardik says. “Without a thorough evaluation, one can’t
tell where the blood is coming from or what the cause of blood after sex is,” she says. “See your doctor.” We hope you find this bleeding after sex causes

    Honestly I looked this up for education. I was too scared to ask about a females reproductive parts in health class freshman year. I'm a junior and still learning more and more about things like this. It's honestly helpful so thank you for this post.
