Bleeding With Intercourse
I seem to bleed every time my husband and I have intercourse. Has anyone experienced this problem?
Skellaj - I had this issue in the late 70's, early 80's. I had more abnormal paps that I can remember! When I went to the doctor, they did a biopsy (a little uncomfortable). if you imagine a clock they snipped at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. The biopsy came back positive stage 1 cancer. Don;t panic. I had to have cryo surgery which is where they freeze your cervix and the outer layer of tissue falls off. After that I never had the problem again. It's best to get it checked immediately! Technology is so different now, i doubt you will have to go through what i did! best of luck toyou!
Mamaj - from: ahttp://www.managingcontraception.com/qa/questions.php?questionid=2214 Orgasm while using Mirena...why do I bleed during or shortly after sex? #841/8 Question: I have a Mirena implant and I have had it for 2 years now. I am a 37 year-old healthy female. I have 2 teenage children and have been on some type of birth control for 16 years. I had Depo shots for 12 years, pills for 2 and now Mirena. Recently my boyfriend and I have noticed that 3/4 of the time we have sex, I bleed during or shortly afterwards. There is no pain, and many times the orgasms are intense. Can you explain why I bleed? It is very annoying. Recently I had a Pap smear and the results where perfect. My OgGyn found no other problems but I didn't tell him about this. Answer: I have had several women describe the same annoying symptom you have experienced. Women using Mirena may spot or bleed for months and presumably women with no visible spotting may have small amounts of blood in the uterus that is expelled at the time of a vigorous orgasm. This is I would think, exactly what is happening in your case. During orgasm, a woman experiences a series of muscular contractions in the outer third of the vagina. The first contractions are four-fifths of a second apart. Subsequent contractions are less intense and come at greater intervals. The number of contractions may range from three to twelve. The uterus also contracts rhythmically. The series of “rhythmic contractions of the perineal muscles, uterus, and in some women, the lower third of the vagina” [Youngkin – 1994, Women’s Health; P.62] may occur several times for a woman if she has several orgasms. If there is already a small amount of blood in the uterus, contractions of the uterus may cause expulsion of this blood which may be experienced as a small amount of vaginal bleeding. If a woman as a uterine fibroid just beneath the endometrium (uterine lining) it could bleed at the time of uterine contractions associated with orgasms. And if a woman has a low-grade pelvic infection (endometritis) then orgasm with uterine muscle contractions could lead to vaginal bleeding. The same would be true for a woman with endometrial cancer
