Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Bleeding during or after sex may be due to blunt trauma inside vagina or cervix by rough sexual intercourse. This type of bleeding usually stops automatically and no medical treatment is required. Cervical polyp etc are least possible in this case. If you did unprotected sex close to her ovulation day (approx 14 days before due date) or fertile days ( 11th to 19th day of 28-30 days cycle), then her chance of pregnancy is quite high. In that case, she must undergo one home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy soon after missed period. Otherwise, she can wait few more days to get period naturally as she feels period symptoms or PMS (Premenstrual Symptoms). It is more indicative of getting period shortly. Just avoid mental stress and maintain healthy life style. Hope, I have answered your query. Let me know, if you need further clarification. Wish your good health and practice safe sex in future.

i have vaginal bleeding that started about three months ago and sometimes the bleeding comes out in lumps.I have stopped menstruating for over a year before this just started. PAP smear was ok. Ultra sound scan said ovaries ok.arto uterus empty and significant fluid in sac.cervix enlarged (41*35).The conclusion of the ultrasound scan is that heterogenous cervical mass and pap smear is advised. What could be my situation and what do you advise I do to treat this. Thank you
