I had one off very light spotting after on two consecutive

Customer Question

I had one off very light spotting after sex on two consecutive occasions a few months ago. Because my paternal grandmother died of ovarian cancer aged 59 my doctor booked an appointment at the hospital for a scan which was clear. I also had a CA125 blood test done which was normal and a smear test which was normal also. Do I still need to go to the appointment at the gynae dept as I have not had a recurrence and as I remember, when it happened I was very dry and should probably have had lubrication?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

most likely you were very dry during sex and this caused the light spotting after sex.

Dr. David :

I am glad you had the pap smear test and gyn exam

Dr. David :

you should be getting routine gyn examinations once a year anyway if you are sexually active.

Customer:

I agree. I think the doctor was very thorough referring me to the hospital but I feel that I don't need the final appointment. I am very good at making sure i have the CA125 test done every year along with a gynae exam

Dr. David :

sounds good

Dr. David :

good luck to you

Dr. David :

remember to use more lubricant next time
