Vaginal bleeding during intercourse


Q: If I am currently on birth control and missed a pill at the beginning of my pack, and then had rougher sex with a well endowed male and started bleeding during intercourse should I be worried? I am supposed to start my period in 3 days (19 years old) It was not my first time having intercourse but closer to it.

Symptoms:  No symptoms

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

The bleeding during sex could be post-coital bleeding, which needs an evaluation to rule out causes such as cervical infection, inflammation or even an early cancer. Pill related side effects can also lead to that kind of bleeding. There are chances of a pregnancy as well since you have missed the birth control. See your Doctor for an examination and to rule out pregnancy, also a pap smear may be needed to rule out causes of bleeding after sex.

Hope this helped.
