User :   Hi, recently I had intercourse which resulted in quite a bit of blood. However, it was not my time of the month. Today, I was getting a bikini wax and the woman asked me why I was so red. The redness is on the outer lips and right to the beginning of the crease of my leg. It has been itchy recently.
Doctor :   hello
User :   Hello
User :   I appreciate any feedback
Doctor :   give me a min , let me read your query
User :   Thank you
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   38
Doctor :   is this the first time you have noticed anything like that ?
User :   Yes, I never even noticed it was red until the lady mentioned. It has been itchy though.
Doctor :   so was it a lot of bleeding ?
User :   I should also mention I have a polyp which I am guessing has to do with the blood occurrence during intercourse. The bleeding was quite swift and heavy yes. But it stopped pretty much after intercourse
Doctor :   and was the color bright red ?
User :   yes it was.
Doctor :   ok, well now that you have told me , yes its true the bleeding can be from the polyp.
Doctor :   but at the same time you having redness and itchiness m which shows a sign of infection
User :   Is there a high rate this may be an STD
Doctor :   it has a high chance
Doctor :   of being a sexually transmitted infection
Doctor :   that has causes irritation to the reproductive organs like cervix or uterus
User :   There are no bumps or lesions, but yes it's red and previously I had a PAP with abnormal results. The doctor said there was a probability it was HPV. Could this contribute?
User :   And the redness is contained outside the lips.
Doctor :   abmormal PAP is a indication os HPV.
Doctor :   the bleeding that you have mentioned looks typical from the polyp
Doctor :   and it can be just a minor infection
User :   Okay, I have already booked an appointment with my doc but wanted to get some information before going. I appreciate your help.
Doctor :   your most welcome
Doctor :   yes the NEXT BEST STEP would be to get your self tested
User :   Okay, good advice. Thank you, goodbye.
