Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Bleeding during sex is not normal and needs to be checked out by your doctor. As for the spotting it could mean a number of things.

Potential causes of bleeding between periods include:

  • a growth in the uterus or cervix
  • stress
  • a change in medication
  • a miscarriage
  • vaginal dryness
  • a hormone imbalance

Make an appointment for a pelvic exam soon, don't put it off.

Be well,
