Unknown vaginal bleeding after sex



Hi im 20 years old. I have been on the combined pill since I was 16 and have never had any side effects including no vaginal bleeding other than in my monthly break (my period). The last 2 months I have had sex four times with two different sexual partners and I have bled during sex. It is not painful but it seems every time I am having sex I bleed. The most recent time I have bled a lot that I had to stand in the shower and continued to bleed afterwards until the next afternoon. it has ruined my confidence and I am unsure what it is. I have had a full STI check twice in the last couple of months and both were negative.

I hope you have some advice on what could help.


Hello @MWG31

Many thanks for your question. As this has not happened before it sounds like you should see your doctor and that they should do an internal examination - just to see where the bleeding is coming from. Making sure that you are up to date with your smear test would also be important as would an infection screen and a pregnancy test.

I think the first thing is to go to your GP or sexual health service

Many thanks
