Post-Coital Bleeding
An_250246 posted:
I am seriously worried right now because of all of the possible causes that google has been giving me and I would like I real answer from somebody who knows. Last night, after having sex, I went to the bathroom and noticed bright red blood when I wiped. Today it was only a little bit of brown discharge. This wasn't the first time I have had sex, but it is the first time that my husband has been able to go all the way in. It only hurt a little bit during intercourse. I am on Tri-Previfem for birth control and my period is supposed to start in about 3 days. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Because google keeps telling me that I either have cancer or an STD, which both frighten me very much. Thank you so much, Bonnie.
