Okay so I started having sex in August, did so quite frequently and never bled, aside from my first time. I stopped for about a month, and recentlu have started again and for some reason, both during and after sex, I have bled. This has happened three times, the first time it was more blood, second time not so much. Both ceased bleeding right away. However, for this third time, I hardly bled at all but it has been three days and while there were few traces of blood at the time, I'm now finding my discharge to be brownish, even though there is not much of it. I've been on birthcontol for 4 months now and a week ago I switched from a 21 day pack to a 28 day pack but that has been the only change since...
Should I be worried? It's nearly gone now but still.. This never happened before.

Oh, also, my most recent partner is slightly rougher I find, causing me some discomfort, could that be it?

Are you (and your sexual partner) up to date on your STI testing? Bleeding during/after sex can be a symptom of some infections.

Hormonal birth control can also cause random bleeding as well, especially if you're switching brands, starting it or within the first 3 months of taking it.

Either way, I'd recommend just getting it checked out, to be on the safe side. [Smile]

Rough sex can cause bleeding.

Are you communicating your discomfort to your partner? Are you using lube?
