What causes bleeding after intercourse?
Can be due to infections.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
It is not normal to have bleeding after sex and it is usually found in vaginal infections like Chlamydia, gonorrhea or trichomoniasis, vaginal inflammation, disease of endometrium that is lining of uterus, polyps (mass) in uterus and cervix, fibroid tumor or endometritis.
Vaginal swab tests and culture tests may be false negative for STD’s like herpes and HPV also. Blood antibody testing are more accurate and these can include ELISA (for herpes, Chlamydia and HPV).
So I suggest you to get these blood tests done and for bacterial infections like Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis, repeat culture sensitivity should be done. You also need to get an ultrasound uterus done to rule out any fibroids or polyps. A gynecologist should be consulted in this case.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
