Im 18 this year and have been sexually active for 3 years ..This has happened before, preferably two years ago? i had an ultrasound in that year and they said i had an ovarian cycst..nothing cancerous, and to check back half a year later. the next time i checked it got smaller, nothing harmful and i was not asked to have another ultrasound done again. in these two years, there were times when i bled after or during intercourse, usually its quiet alot. so last year i had a pap smear but everything seemed fine. but i cant be sure if it was accurate because i had sex a day or two before i had the pap smear. lately, for the past week or two, everytime i try to have sex i bleed. why am i bleeding??! i dont have rough sex. can someone help.. should i go to the doctor to get another pap smear?? just to be sure? its always like this, periods when i bleed during/after intercourse and then its fine.. another thing is, i always seem to bleed when i have sex with my boyfriend and im on top. whats wrong with me??!

  • I don't know if this is the proper place for diagnosis. I would go to the doctor if it bothers you. If it's a considerable amount and you find it bothersome the doctor is the best way to go to confirm what it may be. I personally have ovarian cysts too and do not experience bleeding postcoital. I hope you find some sorta closure with diagnosis of what your etiology may be.

  • If your first pap smear went well, you are probably fine (if you haven't had sex with another person). Having sex a few days before pap wouldn't jepardize the outcome of the test. Ovarian cysts do cause bleeding duirng sex but I would suggest seeing a doc again and having another ultrasound to see what's going on with these cysts.
