26 YEAR OLD MOTHER OF ONE WONDERING IF SPOTTING AFTER INTERCOURSE IS A SYMPTOM OF OVARIAN CANCER? HAVE DISCUSSED THIS WITH MY DOCTOR AND SHE THINKS IT IS RELATED TO MY BC PILLS AND/OR THE FACT THAT MY HUSBAND AND I DON'T HAVE SEX VERY OFTEN.(LIKE EVERY 3 TO 4 MONTHS) SHE AND I THINK MAYBE AFTER WAITING SO LONG, IT IRRITATES MY VAGINA AND CAUSES VERY LIGHT SPOTTING. ANY COMMENTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED
Could be cervical polyps too. Id get a vaginal ultrasound if it keeps happening. Im not a Doc but id be somewhat concerned. I don't know if BC pills cause that. Maybe you could find more info on the Internet about that. I don't think its a sign of ovarian cancer, it could be from many many other things.
