Any pain?
Best wishes,

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
It's fairly light bleeding, it happened twice, a few days apart (approx 3 days). No bleeding in-between and no pain
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 21 days ago.


This is likely due to gradual resumption of estrogen level and it can cause the fragility of the vaginal wall blood vessels.

Sexual activity can make them prone for bleeding.

I think you will soon start having period as well as the estrogen level stabilizes.

I will also suggest you to get a cervical pap smear as well as screening for cervical cancer.

Okay, thank you. I have had a pap smear in the last year and had the cervical cancer jab. But during active addiction
