Bleeding after sex a day later?

I'm on the pill and have been for about a year and a half now. I've bled from sex before, and went to a gynecologist where I had abnormal pap smears but never had an std. I went for cryotherapy and got another pap done after, which turned out fine . My boyfriend and I had sex more than 24 hours ago, and I bled a bit, even though it's not a lot I am still bleeding. I can't get ahold of my doctor's office or gynecologist immediately. I am going on the 3rd week of birth control right now. Any suggestions?

Hi Anonymous,

I am going to provide you this website to read as there are many reasons why women will bleed after sex http://womenshealth.about.com/cs/menstruation/a/bleedaftersex.htm.


To understand why YOU are having this issue, I would certainly follow up with your treating physician. I hope this helps and good luck.
