Bleeding After Having Sex With Myoma Sufferers?
… I want to ask, I was diagnosed with myoma dirahim … I have not followed up with the doctor again because I’m afraid to get surgery? Then I have intercourse with my husband and if I am in the above position and I have finished intercourse from bleeding from the vagina … Is the bleeding due to myoma bleeding? Thanks for the answer

True, the presence of a myoma in the uterus can indeed be one of the triggers of repeated bleeding after sexual intercourse (postcoital bleeding). Myoma itself is a type of benign tumor that grows from the lining of the uterine muscle (myometrium). The growth of this tumor is not yet clear. However, genetic factors and impaired estrogen and progesterone hormones are thought to play a powerful role in triggering them. Myomas are most often found in women who experience menstruation at an early age, experience menopause in the elderly, use hormonal birth control, experience obesity, vitamin D deficiency, consume excessive red meat and consume less antioxidants, and are accustomed to consuming alcohol.
Not only recurring bleeding after intercourse, myoma sufferers can also experience excessive menstrual bleeding, urination disorders, bowel obstruction, to the sensation of pressure around the pelvis or lower abdomen. Some types of myomas can even put you at risk of being infertile or having a miscarriage.
If you have already seen a doctor, and are found to have a myoma, you should discuss it directly with your doctor on the best way to handle it. Not all myomas have to be treated with surgery. Depending on the size, type, and clinical symptoms that arise, myoma can also be treated simply by observation, administration of drugs, non-invasive surgery using ultra sound waves, uterine artery embolization, myolysis, and so on. Therefore, there is no need to worry too much, right? With a doctor's examination also, the possibility of other medical disorders that can trigger bleeding after sexual intercourse, for example cervical cancer, cervicitis, endometriosis, etc., can be detected and treated early. So, don't be afraid. Go back to your obstetrician to get the best treatment.
As an initial suggestion, to help prevent recurrent bleeding after intercourse, you and your partner should do maximum foreplay before penetration when having sex. Do not forget, always live a healthy lifestyle, and avoid taking any medication without doctor's advice.
