Trying to conceive, have continuous bleeding after sex. How can I stop it?

Hi I bleed a couple of days after having sex and the bleeding continues for upto three weeks. This has continued for the last couple of months at least. I ve always bled a very small amount after sex, but only in the last couple of months has this continued for such extensive amounts of time. I came off the pill in February and want to begin trying for a baby soon but am very worried about the bleeding. How can I stop it? I m quite positive I m not pregnant and did a test three days a go.

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

The bleeding that you are describing has been present for a significant period of time, and is obviously getting worse over the more recent past. Given the clear association with intercourse, then there is likely something anatomically changed about the cervix or uterus. This might include:

1. A cervical polyp
2. A uterine polyp
3. Cervical ectropion (prominence of the gland cells on the surface of the cervix)
4. Infection of the cervix (either common vaginal infections or possibly an STD)

This would be easy to evaluate with an exam and possibly an ultrasound. I am sure that your OB/GYN can help you to figure this out but it will require being seen.
