Bleeding After Intercourse And Late Menstruation?
Hi. On the 7th I had sex but it was not ‘finished’.rnThe week before I also had sex and sperm was released outside (not using a condom. I am also not in a family planning program)rnLast month I had my period on March 6th. rnHowever, on the 7th yesterday I got in touch. My Miss V is bleeding. I think that this is my menses blood. I smelled the aroma which was also a little fishy but the color was bright red like blood in general.rnAfter that, I immediately cleaned my miss V and used a sanitary napkin. But after that the next day no blood came out at all. Only yellowish brown spots but smells fishy like menses blood. I also feel cramps in my stomach like when I have my period. However, until now there has not been a bit of blood that comes out like menses in general. The question is, could this be an early sign of pregnancy? Or is it menstrual blood? Or should I wait for the next few days or what?
Thanks for the question. How is your menstrual cycle usually? The menstrual cycle is calculated from the first day of your period to the first day of your next period. A normal menstrual cycle ranges from 21-35 days. If your last menstrual period was March 6 and your cycle is considered normal, then there is a possibility that the blood that comes out is menstrual blood. However, if the bleeding that occurs is not like your menstrual blood in general, then the complaint can be caused by other conditions. Bleeding that occurs after sexual intercourse can be caused by the following conditions:
lack of lubrication during intercourse so that friction of the genitals during intercourse can cause irritation and injury to the vaginal wall
inflammation of the vagina (vaginitis) or cervix (cervicitis)
vaginal dryness/vaginal atrophy
sexually transmitted infection
An early sign of pregnancy in the form of blood spots usually appears 10-14 days after successful fertilization, when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall.
Please wait for a few days to determine if this is menstrual bleeding. On menstrual bleeding you will experience bleeding as you normally would. If the bleeding stops there is nothing to worry about. You need to worry about this if the bleeding does not stop, occurs repeatedly, or is large.
You can do a testpack if you later experience a delay in menstruation for at least 1 week. The testpack can be repeated one week later if you also do not experience menstruation in the next 1 week or immediately consult an obstetrics and gynecologist.
If you are still bleeding, you should avoid intercourse. At a later date, discuss with your partner to prolong the foreplay so that there is sufficient lubrication and avoid irritation of the vaginal walls.
Hope this information is useful.
