Common Causes of Bleeding During Sex & What You Should Do About It

Experiencing vaginal bleeding during s£xual activity can be concerning, but it is usually not a sign of a serious health issue. However, there are several potential causes of this occurrence that should be considered. Here are three main causes of bleeding during s£x According to WebMD and Healthline:

1. S£xually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

S£xually transmitted diseases (STDs) have been linked to bleeding during s£xual activity. Unusual bleeding immediately following s£xual activity or in the days leading up to your period may indicate the presence of an STD, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea. Seeking medical attention early can help stop the spread of these infections.

2. Pregnancy

Bleeding during s£x can also occur during early pregnancy. If you experience any spotting before, during, or after your period, it is important to take a pregnancy test right away. Unusual bleeding after s£x should also prompt you to take a pregnancy test to rule out both an early pregnancy and an ectopic pregnancy, both of which require urgent medical care. It is recommended to have a professional conduct the test to ensure accuracy.

3. Contraception

Changing birth control pills, skipping a dose, or starting a new pill can also cause unusual bleeding during s£xual activity. While this is a common side effect, if the bleeding persists or appears suddenly, it is important to seek medical attention.
