Hello, i am a female and recently while engaging in intercourse with my boyfriend i had a little pain and then we noticed a little bit of blood. it was just the tiniest amount and we stopped and i was able to engage in intercourse the next day. i have been reading up and i believe the most probable cause would be a small vaginal tear. I had described the pain to my boyfriend as a cut before i read about micro cuts and it seemed to go away pretty quickly. The pain was minimal and it felt like maybe there was a little too much friction. Does this sound reasonable? what other causes might you girls suggest? And i do have an appointment set up with my OB/GYN this month

Dear TSealy,

Hello and welcome! Nurse Jane has a blog entry all about Postcoital Bleeding , or bleeding after sex. It discusses some possible causes and where the bleeding could be coming from.

It should help give you some ideas of what to talk to your OB/GYN about at your appointment. I think you're very smart to get it checked out.

Best wishes,
