Having severe bleeding after intercourse. Had complete hysterectomy in the past due to endometriosis. Reason for bleeding?

I just got remarried and am having breakthrough bleeding after sex. (Have been sexually inactive for a few years.) I had a complete hysterectomy in my late 20s because of endemetriosis. Wondered what could be the cause of this bleeding. I have also been feeling crampy like I used to when I had the endemetrosis. Could those cells still be there and be causing problems again?

Hello and welcome,

There are few reasons for this bleed:
1. trauma; as you have been sexually inactive for a few years, the vagina becomes slightly narrow. So sometimes bleeding may occur during the first few sexual episodes.
2. vaginal polyps or cysts that may bleed after sexual contact.
3. infections: common after initiating sex after long gaps

Recurrence of endometriosis is not possible if both the ovaries have been removed. So please recheck if both the ovaries have been removed or not. Also get an examination by a doctor to look for the cause.

Do not worry. The reasons are minor ones and can be easily treated.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
