Heavy bleeding after intercourse, no periods. Diagnosed as cervix erosion. Taken Loestrin. Possibility of medicinal side-effect?

Been at the doctors today after bleeding heavily after intercourse with my boyfriend. She said I have erosion of the cervix and did some swabs which I will have to wait for the results. I have looked online and says it could be related to my pill which is loestrin 20. I haven t had a period in over two years which is why I was so shocked web it happened. Can you give me any information about loestrin 20 leading to erosion and what are the procedures? Thanks

Loestrin 20 can cause cervical erosion. But each case of cervical erosion or dysplasia should be evaluated with pap smear to rule out early or pre-cancerous changes.

I agree with your doctors approach.You need to wait for smear results before concluding it as related to Loestrin.
