Bleeding After Sex!

Hi,
I started dating a new guy and the sex has been a little bit rough. Recently, after having sex we noticed that there was some blood afterwards. I figured the sex was just too rough so I ignored it. However, we had sex again and there was an alarming amount of blood afterwards. What could be causing the bleeding? I can't go to the gyno because I don't have insurance. Someone please give me some advice! I don't think it's an std because I was recently tested in January. Any ideas?

It's possible that you have a cervical ectopy - a common condition among women who have been on birth control for a long time or just given birth. Basically, it causes delicate cells from inside the uterus to move outward onto your cervix (which normally has tougher cells). A side effect is bleeding after sex.

My gynecologist said it sometimes goes away on its own, but I've had this problem for about a year, so I'm going to explore treatment. If you're on birth control, ask whoever prescribes it to you about progesterone only pills -- it may help.

Sometimes states or teaching hospitals offer free gynecological services for women with no health insurance. You should definitely get it checked out by a doctor, even if you've already had an STD test.
