Discharge Of Mucus Mixed With Blood After Intercourse?
. I am 22 years old. I want to ask, at that time I just had sex with my husband. After that, when I washed it, there was a little blood mixed with clear mucus. Because when I wash it I put my finger into the vagina to make it cleaner. But not much blood. I repeated like that the next day but there was still mucus mixed with the blood. Also I have no complaints of stomach pain. Is it dangerous? Thank you
Hi Elizabeth, thanks for your question
Is this your first sexual relationship with your husband?
If so, the discharge of blood mixed with mucus after sexual intercourse is most likely caused by a tear in the hymen. Generally, bleeding is in the form of spots / spots that will last for 1-2 days. This condition is considered normal and does not require special treatment.
In addition to tearing the hymen, bleeding after sexual intercourse can be caused by:
have sex when you are ovulating, also when you are starting to menstruate
friction during sexual intercourse due to lack of lubrication fluid
abnormalities in the cervix or vagina, for example:
genital sores, usually associated with sexually transmitted diseases
If this is the first time you experience this complaint, you should not panic. However, if this condition has occurred repeatedly, you should see a gynecologist for proper examination and treatment. While waiting for a doctor's examination, here are some suggestions for you:
You should not insert your finger into the vagina because there is a risk of increasing irritation or actually triggering an infection
keep the feminine area clean by rinsing using clean water from front to back
you should not use special vaginal cleaning soap or wipes, pantyliners, and perfumed sanitary napkins
make sure to wipe your feminine area with a clean tissue or towel before putting on underwear, do it from front to back
choose underwear made of cotton and not tight
change underwear regularly
note the color and amount of bleeding that occurs
