Customer Question

I had sex last week it was quite rough and I had a tiny bit of blood but I thought either it's because I've just come on or its because it was quite rough, I hadn't had sex for at least 4 weeks previously but since that night I have experienced an almost period with brown blood and discharge, please can you help me? I'm getting a couple of period cramps it's a bit strange

rough sex can cause vaginal lacerations and tears in the vaginal canal which can bleed and cause brown blood

trauma to the cervix and uterus can cause bleeding from the cervix or uterus and old blood can get trapped in the uterus and come out later as brown blood.

you need to see a doctor and get a gyn examination to check inside of your vaginal canal to check for tears and lacerations

these will usually heal up on their own over time.

you should also be checked for STD as well which can cause bleeding

if you didn't use protection, pregnancy should also be checked.

do you have a gyn doctor you can see who can do a gyn exam?

or you can go to a planned parenthood for a gyn exam

let me know if you have questions.
