What causes bleeding during sex?

default
Posted on Sat, 19 Jul 2014
Question: Hi,
For the past few weeks I have been bleeding lightly during sex. It doesn't pour out but there is dark blood residue on my partners fingers and condoms after sex. I haven't had any pain and my discharge is the same as it usually is. I have been sexually active for about 4 years and haven't noticed this before. I had chlamydia from an ex partner about six months ago but got rid of it and have since been retested. Is it possible I can have a cut inside my vagina?

Brief Answer:
Not due to injury.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The dark colored blood indicates an old bleeding. A cut in the vagina will cause a fresh red colored bleeding.So any injury in the area is not likely.
The bleeding you are having can be due to a vaginal infection or some left over blood from your previous periods. You can wait for a few days and see if it subsides on its own.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
