User :   I had hard sex the first of the week and afterwards I was bleeding, although it seemed lighter in color than my period. It only lasted for that afternoon and I have no pain. My period did stop a day before I had sex. Should I be concerned about the bleeding?                                                                 
Doctor :   hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   if the bleeding had continued then you should have had it examined
Doctor :   to see if there is any injury associated
Doctor :   what other symptoms are you having?
User :   I am not having any other symptoms. I just do not want to have hard sex if it is going to cause trouble for me. The man I am having sex with is larger than any previous partners...
Doctor :   if there is discomfort and pain associated, avoid having intercourse for few days
Doctor :   also check if you have any of STD, or PID since you have had more than 1 sexual partner
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   I have had one partner for 16 years and now I have this one partner for the last few months, although we were both married and have not been with others. I do not believe that std's should be a concern. I do have an annual exam with my doctor this month, I will check to see how my pap smear comes out.
Doctor :   ok. then in your annual check with your doctors, ask for PID screening also
Doctor :   and to avoid bleeding and pain during intercourse, try using a lubricant
Doctor :   and request your partner not to be hard
Doctor :   but go with your comfort level
Doctor :   it will make sure you do not have any vaginal wall or cervical injury
User :   what will that screening show?
Doctor :   it will show if you have any infection/inflammation in pelvis and pelvic organs
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
User :   Yes, Thank you for your time....
Doctor :   is there anything else you would like to ask me?
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me. Bye for now. Please chat with our doctors 24/7 for medical queries. Please refer your friends to our service.
