Customer Question

Hi I had unprotected sex 6 days ago, it was at the end of my period. I've been having pain and brown discharge with some blood since. It was a new partner and quite rough sex. Should I see my GP?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: I'm having some pelvic pain but it's mild. Very regular periods every 28 days. I'm 43
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No that's it

Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.

Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
Thanks
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 22 days ago.

I understand your concern. Are there any foul smells?

Is there any fever?

Have you ever had an STI in the past?

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
No smells or fever. No STIs no. It began immediately after
Customer: replied 22 days ago.
I don't wish to call
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 22 days ago.

This could be due to rough sex but it would be prudent to schedule an appointment with GP and get examined. They can request for some routine blood work as well. You may take Tablet Tylenol extra every 6 hours for pain relief in the meantime.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
OK I'll call my doctor, thanks
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 22 days ago.

My pleasure.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
Could it have been because I was at the end of my period
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 22 days ago.

That's a possibility but having intercourse generally doesn't prolong the bleeding or cause pelvic pains. Getting examined would be the right approach in my opinion.

Customer: replied 22 days ago.
OK thanks.
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 22 days ago.

Pleasure.
