Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can i help you?
User :   I have a question about a problem i had this morning during/after intercourse
Doctor :   Please proceed with your query
User :   i had some bleeding that i have never had before, enough that i thought i had possibly started my period. i have been abstinate for basically 8 months now, but since Friday have been very active with one person. i was sore externally, but is it possible i had some internal tearing i wasn't aware of that could have caused the bleeding this morning? yesterday we were not active, so there was a rest period of about 36 hours or so
Doctor :   When did you have your last periods? Do you have any pain or itching in the genitals ? Is the bleeding still present?
Doctor :   Also may i know your age?
User :   no pain or itching, other than a mild soreness from overuse after an extended period of inactivity. the bleeding stopped immediately following intercourse. it has probably been i don't know maybe 6 or 8 weeks since my last period, they are very irregular, always have been. i had a tubal ligation in 1996.
Doctor :   The bleeeding could have been due tovarious reasons as Bacterial infection, fungal infection, Uterine polyps, Fibroids, Cervicitis, endometriosis.
Doctor :   Since you have irregular periods did you ever get yourself examined for that.?
Doctor :   Also may i know your age?
User :   several times years ago, but the doctors always told me if it didn't bother me it didn't bother them. military physicians
User :   39
Doctor :   Did you get your investigations like USG scan done to see any abnormal growth like fibroid or any cyst?
User :   i know i get cysts on my ovaries around the time i ovulate
User :   but no scans. no
Doctor :   I will advise you to get a complete examination and investigations like USG scan and Pap smear done to rule out any pathology. Also having irregular periods it needs concern.
Doctor :   Also you may require a complete hormonal evaluation done like LH, FSH and Prolaction.
User :   ok. but concerning my question. is it possible that there was internal damage due to a heavy amount of sexual activity folllowing a prolonged period of abstinance
Doctor :   You should also keep a watch of this bleedins again.
Doctor :   It cannot be as such that any internal damage is there because of prolonged gap.
Doctor :   Any infection of pelvis like cervix or uterus can lead to this.
User :   i meant that the internal tearing could hve been caused by such heavy activity
Doctor :   Soreness could be present but not any tearing as such to cause bleeding
User :   hm. not what i heard from other sources, but ok
