Friday night my boyfriend and I noticed some blood during sex on the outside condom and on the sheets. We immediately stopped and I went to the bathroom to check it out. There was some discharge that had darker red blood in it and when I wiped there was some blood on the tissue, that was a brighter pink-ish red. I would say it was more than "spotting" but less than what you would experience during your period. (Sorry that is vague...kind of hard to describe)

When I urinated later that evening, there wasn't any blood when I wiped. And when we had sex the next day I didn't experience any bleeding.

I didn't experience any pain or discomfort during sex. I have never bled during sex before. To give you some background - I am currently on the combined OCP Nortrel 1/35. I have been taking it for nearly 3 years and I only experienced spotting the first couple months and I haven't experienced any bleeding since, except for during my withdrawal bleed.

My withdrawal bleed ended last Tuesday (3 days before the incident ). I still had some spotting on Wednesday from the withdrawal bleed.

I guess what I am asking is..could this be withdrawal bleed related? Should I check with my doctor?

It could have been some spotting between your cycles, but the thing is we cannot know what exactly happened. Best thing to do is check-in with your healthcare provider just to be sure everything is okay. [Smile]

Edith, I forgot to say thanks for the advice!

And to update you, I went to get it checked out today and the nurse practitioner said it was likely withdrawal bleed related or some sort of abrasion and she said that either way it wasn't something to be too concerned about so I feel a lot better now!
