Question: what are different things that can cause vaginal bleeding during sexual intercourse?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Can be due to infections.

Detailed Answer:
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.

So I'd suggest you to please get blood tests done for bacterial infections like Gonorrhea and Trichomoniasis and a culture sensitivity analysis should also 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.

Dear Doctor,
Im a 15 year old and I've never had intercourse. But since yesterday, I've noticed bumps that are like mosquito bites in my vagina and its itchy. I also had fever (i dont know why, i have been very tired and had lack of sleep so that may be why i experienced fever or maybe its because of the vaginal discomfort). I put on some cream and for a few seconds, i experienced burning sensation but it was fine later and the discomfort and itching stopped. But the bumps have still not gone, though i think they are smaller today. What is going on?
