Question: i had sex with my husband today and about 1,4 hour later i had a bit of pink spotting . we used a condom. i gave birth 6 month ago and in 2011 i had a cone biopsy. in october 2017 i had a pap smear and hpv test. they were both negative. I fully breastfeed but had my period 17 days ago. I can feel some pinching around my ovaries today and yesterday. Do I neee to have the spotting checked out due to history of cone biopsy?

Brief Answer:
Minor spotting after intercourse is probably not a matter of concern.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Vaginal bleeding after intercourse is fairly common and happen to many women.

I see through your query that you have already done pap smear and HPV test.

These tests exclude many possible causes.

So,I don't think that it should be a cause of concern.

The pinching feeling can be due to ovulation period.

You can use anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg to relieve this symptom.

If the spotting continues I recommend doing a physical examination and a Pap smear to rule out an infection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
