I have been experiencing vaginal bleeding during sexual intercourse. The bleeding stops soon afterward. This has happened about three times. I have never been diagnosed with any std's but have been tested for the major ones. Is this a cause for alarm.
Vaginal bleeding after sexual intercourse should be taken as a very serious symptom of perhaps an organic lesion in the vagina or cervix. A vaginal examination with a colposcopy and Pap-test is necessary. Thatâs why you must visit your gynecologist immediately.
