Hello, I am having some trouble right now, well not sure if I can call it trouble, but it is making me indeed feel anxious and giving me a headache.
I am in a relationship for almost half a year and I lost my virginity on the 3rd of July, repeated the intercourse on 8th and 10th of the same month, and on the 11th I got my period. I didn't have sex again until yesterday, which is 7th of August, if we don't put at count the failed try from 31st of July, when I was too dry to have sex and he couldn't even get inside. [probably because of a problem I will mention down]
Yesterday, during the intercourse, in one of the positions, i started to bleed slightly, he was the one who noticed the blood because it was on the condom, so we stopped entirely. At first I thought it was my period being early (i got it on the 11th and ended on the 15th, so my period app said i would get it on the 9th, ) but that's not it, I guess, because it bled yesterday and today only when I go to the toilet i noticed drops of blood on the paper towel. Also my lower back hurt a little bit, like it does during my period, but it was bearable.
I have to mention I had a bartholin cyst, it appeared on the 11th of July, when my period came was the first time I noticed it because it got bigger and I felt discomfort while sitting down. After going to the gynecologist and doing some tests, I got back that I have candida albicans, I think it is known as yeast infection in more common language (I think, not sure, do correct me if I am wrong).
While sitting on the toilet and waiting for my boyfriend to buy me pads, I googled around about the bleeding during intercourse and it freaked me out because most of the answers were related to pregnancy ... anyway, I am slightly stressed and anxious, I keep saying I can't be pregnant because that's the logical way of thinking, but also I need reassurance from someone that my case is not one that I should be worried about, that's why I am here posting this.
Also I read on the internet that yeast infection CAN cause bleeding or the fact that the cervix was touched and since I am close to my menstruation it was lower than usually and that's why I bled.
What do you think?
P.S: I posted a comment in one of the threads with my story, but since I thought it might not be seen, I decided to make an account and post my own question, since I find this site helpful, I might stick around for my own sake and future researches.
