On birth control, small streak of blood found while wiping, feel dry and uncomfortable during sex. Could it be a tear ?

Hi, I am taking birth control and take it regularly, with no missed days. My period was over the week before last. This past Sunday, after urinating, I wiped and noticed a small bright red streak of blood on the toilet paper. When I wiped again there was nothing. This happened again tonight. What could that be? I have noticed that during sexual intercorse this past weekend it felt uncomfortable, very dry feeling. Could it be a tear? We use both condoms and the pill .

Hello ma'am.

Based on the description, more than a teear your symptoms point towards either an infection or menopause.

Which is why I would request you to visit a doctor and get your urine analysed, a physical examination and a vaginal swab test (if requiered).

If these tests report inconclusive results, based on your age your doctor might even suspect menopause and get your hormonal levels checked and even advise a transvaginal ultrasound (TVS). Please go ahead with the same.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
