Are you asking if it is ok to have sexual intercourse after a colonoscopy (colon test)?
Well I already had sex
Ok, so you're wondering if it is ok to have sex after the test or what is your question?
Are you saying that you are bleeding from the anal area? Did you engage in anal sex?
Vaginal sex after a colonscopy itself should not cause bleeding from the rectum/anus. You might already have pre-existing conditions that might cause rectal bleeding after sex, but the colonoscopy, itself, would not cause the bleeding. Anal fissures, hemorrhoids, or rectal tumors can cause bleeding. I would suggest that if you are having enough active bleeding to use pads, you should seek medical evaluation. I also see that you added you have tried alcohol to the area. I would suggest doing this as this would cause unnecessary irritation and further inflammation of the area.
Ok, if it is not your period, the sexual encounter could have caused the slight bleed. Are you sure you are not pregnant?
are you still their
I see. The colonscopy would not be to blame for the vaginal bleed. If anything, it is from the vaginal intercourse.
Ok, sorry, I misunderstood the question
The Colposcopy itself will not cause the bleeding, but if any procedures were performed during the Colposcopy such as cryotherapy (or freezing of tissue) or any biopsies were done, this would cause the bleeding. If any procedures were performed during the Colposcopy, slight bleeding or discharge is normal a few days after the procedure.
(sorry for the confusion)
You are very welcome! My pleasure!
