Bleeding and burning sensation when urinating after sex.

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Since yesterday, it has been hurting when I pee and I don't know if I have my period because when I wipe, I sometimes see blood but I don't have blood on my pad. I just had sex about 3-4 days ago after not having it for about a year. Any idea what is wrong?

A:   The presence of blood in the wipe could indicate local trauma sustained during sexual intercourse. The bleeding should stop without treatment and will require you to keep proper hygiene and increase water intake. If the bleeding continues you need to see your doctor to rule out a urinary tract infection.
