Do you mean vaginal or rectal bleeding?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Vaginal bleeding. It happened during intercourse and there was quite a bit. It stopped afterwards and I've not had it since

Are you on any pill?

Any pain?

Do you have regular period? When?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I'm not using any pills, I have stomach cramping and it feels uncomfortable and sore. My period is irregular it's usually on average 35 days, from that probably due in just over a week
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 9 days ago.


Most likely hormone change related bleeding since you are within a week's reach of your period.

The vaginal blood vessels are delicate and can bleed as a result.

However, if there is recurrent such bleeding with sex, then other possibilities like pelvic inflammatory disease needs to be considered.

Okay thank you. Would you recommend me seeing a doctor or will it be okay unless it happens again?
