Pre period bleeding during sex
An_212413 posted:
I'm a 32 yrs old girl on the pill and have been having this issue with my current BF. Everytime we have sex 4-5 days before the start of my period I begin to bleed as if my period is starting but them it stops after we stop and doesn't come until it's due to. I don't recall this ever happening when I was younger. Does anyone else have this problem or is there anything I can do to stop this ( I doubt it though) Thanks

Would it be possible that it is just a sign that your period is coming already?
merce426 replied to joshiii's response:
it is a sign but when I was younger this never happened. I used to have sex like 2 days before and I was fine. Now it's like 4-5 days before
PainterOfHorses replied to merce426's response:
I have never had this problem when I was younger either, but now I am having the same kind of issues. I have not talked to my doctor yet, but plan to on monday or tuesday. I am not just 4 or 5 days out, is like almost 2 weeks. Its not much, and Its not more than just peeing after sex. My partner and I are not rough at all during sex, and we dont have it very often, maybe once..sometimes twice a week. ??? I thought I was the only one with this issue as well, although I am trying to find out more about why it may be occuring.
