About the symptom

Bleeding during or after sexual intercourse can be as little as spotting or light staining of discharge. This is also called postcoital bleeding.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Fever

  • Abdominal pain

  • Lower abdominal pain

  • Intermenstrual bleeding

Possible causes

  • Cervical polyp

    A growth on the cervix (outlet of the womb). This is usually non-cancerous, but can cause bleeding or become infected. Risk factors include age (40 to 60 years old) and previous childbirth.

  • Trichomoniasis

    Infection of the vagina by a parasite called Trichomonas. The disease is sexually transmitted, but does often not cause any symptoms in men.

  • Atrophic vaginitis

    A condition where the vaginal surface becomes dry and thin. This is commonly seen after menopause, due to a decrease in female hormone levels. Symptoms include itching and painful intercourse.

  • Chlamydia infection
  • Herpes simplex
  • Gonorrhea
