Hello,

You should not take this bleeding after sex lightly. It can happen mostly due to some lesions on the mouth of the uterus(cervix), the commonest cause being cancer of the cervix.

Please report to your Gynaecologist ASAP and get thoroughly examined. If there is any lesion located on the cervix, a biopsy from that area will be taken for studying under the microscope.

May be you can have an infective erosion or growth on the cervix which also can be a cause of bleeding after sex. However, let it come from the horses mouth after you have been thoroughly examined - clinically as well as histopathologically. Please take care, do not ignore.

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

Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon

Hello there, I was wondering if you could help understand Hep c. Someone whom I have recently been seeing just made it known to me that her mother had Hep C and that when she was tested for it, the test found traces of Hep C in her system. She said that the Hep is in a dormant stage, and the doctors told her not to worry about it? My question is how much risk am I putting myself in when being in a sexually active relationship with her?
