Bleeding after pillow under hips during sex

User Profile
Hi.... I was just wondering if this happenes alot? I tried the pillow under the hips thing during sex and waited about 10-15 minutes after sex. While waiting i started to bleed at some point! (spotting really)!!! it only lasted a minute or so. It was the first time i tried the pillow under the hips. So is that a normal thing or could something be wrong? If so could you give me some idea of what could have caused the bleeding!!!

Thank you so much for your time and your answer.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

There is no harm in putting a pillow under your hip while having sex. It only results in a deeper thrust of the penis. This could have caused bleeding or spotting due to cervical polyps, yeast infections, endometriosis, cervical dysplasia which is a precancerous condition, uterine polyps, uterine fibroids and cervicitis or inflammation of cervix.

You can discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist and get your self examined as a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on the internet. Hope this helps. Take care!
