I bleed after sex, on Birth control?

Patient: I bleed after sex?I don’t know what’s going on but I’ve had sex with 2 guys (months apart by the way) and after I went to the restroom I found out I was bleeding both times? With the first guy I assumed it was because i hadn’t had sex in almost a year, but with this second guy It was only like 4 or 5 months and I still bled? Also this last guy was a few days ago and now my vagina hurts.Also the second guy didn’t use a condom and I’m on birth control and he never came in me. I have a doctors appointment on thursday but I don’t know if I should ask for a pap smear or not? Anyway sorry if all this is TMI and thanks for any advise.Oh Also I’m 19 and haven’t been a virgin since I was 17.

These can be visualized and tested for by having a pelvic exam and pap smear. Since has this happened several times on different occasions, we recommend that you address this with your doctor. Whether a pap smear needs to be performed or not will be determined by your doctor. We recommend that you refrain from sexual intercourse until you are are examined by a doctor so as to not worsen any potential problems that may be present within your vaginal canal, or cervix.Thank you for choosing askthedoctor.com
