Hello and welcome to HCM
The reason for bleeding after intercourse
has to be sought out. It is technically known as post-coital bleeding.
The causes for post-coital bleeding are:
1. Cervical disorders: They include polyps,dysplasia
, pre-invasive conditions, cancer of the cervix
2. Fibroids: Fibroids are benign growths of muscle layer of the myometrium
(muscle layer of the uterus)
3. Infections of the genital tract: Trichomonal infection, chlamydial infection, gonorrhoea
, vaginal infections
5. Endometrial polyps, endometritis
You need to visit your gynaecologist for clinical examination and relevant investigations.
Management will be guided by examination and investigations.
Thanks and take care
