Hi and thanks for the query,
It s quite reasonabk to actively search to exclude an abnormality of the cervix
at this mpoint in time. HPV is a risk fcator for cervical cancer
, but it actually depends on the HPV variant. Variants 16 and 18 are the most dangerous. Post sex bleeding usually deserves a formal exclusion of a cervical cancer or inflammation. My suggestion is visiting your gynecologist for formal testing, a pap smear
, HPV testing and a colposcopy
or cervical biopsy
. This shall be importnat for an appropriate diagnosis and timely management, if at all there is any abnormality encountered. benign conditions like polyps of the cervix, inflammation from various sources and trauma could also present as such.
Thanks and best regards,
