I am very worried. I had my period last week. It ended

Customer Question

Hello. I am very worried. I had my period last week. It ended Monday so I have been on my pill since. Yesterday I started to bleed. It's heavy flow and very dark too. I'm sorry for the details. I don't know what this is. Should I take my pill today even though I'm bleeding? I'm confused. I have secular intercourse a few times with my boyfriend from Monday evening to Thursday but it always hurt me for some reason? Please help. I'm 20.

This is Dr. David
he could have caused trauma or a vaginal or cervical tear which is causing the bleeding.
you need to avoid sex until you stop bleeding or until you get a gyn exam
you should see your GP and get a gyn examination.
you should continue to take your birth control pills. you don't want to get pregnant.
did you use a condom? even with a condom, if it was rough or active sex, he could have caused laceration or trauma which can cause bleeding the day after sex.
let me know if you have questions.
