After undergoing a episiotomy I have been bleeding during and after intercourse , what is the reason ?

Hello I ve been to the Gyn at least 3 times with in a one month span. Every since I had my son over a year ago I ve been bleeding during and after intercourse. it is always around the area where i had me episiotomy. they say everything is okay, but it keeps happening, and i feel embarrassed. what can be wrong? I always use protection, and I can t take any birth control due to the othroevera patch that gave me a blood clot.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
May be your vaginal mucosa has become quite fragile due to the stitches and every time there is mild stress, it bleeds.It will become alright on its own with a span of time. your worry will not solve the problem.
