Postcoital bleeding in perimenopausal age group is less indicative of an infection and points more towards an unhealthy cervix.You need to have a pap smear examination done and if it comes normal then starting on combined oral pills might help your problem.

the pharmacist said that the efficacy of the pills would be diminished b/c of the topamax (migraine drug) & I could still get pregnant. I can't get pregnant while taking topamax b/c of the risk of birth defects. My pap last year (b4 post coital bleeding began) was normal.
