Slight bleeding after intercourse
findout2 posted:
Recently I have had slight bleeding after intercourse. What could be the possible causes of this. I'm just coming up on 12 months of no periods so I would officially say I'm in menopause now. This bleeding also seems to coincide with painful intercourse. Should I be alarmed

Hi findout2,

Here are some possible causes of abnormal vaginal bleeding. An infection of the pelvic organs can cause vaginal bleeding after intercourse. It is important that you make an appointment with your obgyn to get a proper diagnosis.

Best wishes,

Yes if you found consecutive 12 months with no period then you are in menopause. After having intercourse you may have slight bleeding. But yes if it continues then consult the respected person.
