If you have a UTI and are engaging in sex, that may be the cause of the bleeding. If you have an infection and then adding friction, that's uncomfortable and could hinder healing of the UTI.
I would recommend, abstaining from sex until your UTI is completly gone.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

There are a number of reasons you could be bleeding during sex. Some include:

  1. Injuries to the vaginal wall 
  2. Infections (for example, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, yeast infections) 
  3. Lowered estrogen levels in peri-menopausal or postmenopausal women may cause the lining of the vagina to become thinned and easily inflamed or infected
  4. Anatomical lesions, such as tumors or polyps on the cervix or vaginal wall 
  5. Possible pregnancy

Make an appointment to see your doctor again so the cause of the bleeding can be determined.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
