  • You better see a gynecologist because pain and bleeding during sex are usually a sign of some kind an infection, if not bacterial then yeast. Yeast is not an STD. However, yeast infection usually itches, causes redness and flaking and STD's (mostly bacterial) cause pain and bleeding during sex.One thing is for sure, your symptoms are not normal and should be checked. If it is not an infection, it could be ovarian cysts, they are also very likely to cause these symptoms, as well as cervical inflammation. I would make an appointment if I were you.

  • thanks for your reply. ive been to the docters and because i said ive only bled once during sex she told me to come back if it happens again, but it hasn't happened again since. the strange thing is i didnt have any pain during sex the other day. i think its because i worry its going to hurt and i get tense but i managed to relax and it was fine.

  • I am glad to hear the good news. It could have been that your vagina was dry and that there wasn't enough lubrication, so it hurt and it bled a little. I told you about the worst scenario because I really wanted you to have this checked because bleeding during sex really indicates a cluster of bad things. Many women just decide not to see a doc and the problem prolongs. I am glad you are ok.
