what if I had sex after a colposcopy

Customer Question

what if I had sex after a colposcopy
Submitted: 5 years ago.

Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

Hello

 

Are you asking if it is ok to have sexual intercourse after a colonoscopy (colon test)?

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Well I already had sex

Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

Ok, so you're wondering if it is ok to have sex after the test or what is your question?

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I had the operation last tuesday and had sex today. I am bleeding down their and can tell that the blood is not from my period
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

Are you saying that you are bleeding from the anal area? Did you engage in anal sex?

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I had vaginal sex
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

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.

Its not alot blood but the blood is not from my anal or rectum its comming out of vagina
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

Ok, if it is not your period, the sexual encounter could have caused the slight bleed. Are you sure you are not pregnant?

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I dont think im pregnant i dont have any symptoms just the slight bleeding that iInoticed today
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

are you still their

Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

I see. The colonscopy would not be to blame for the vaginal bleed. If anything, it is from the vaginal intercourse.

 

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I didnt have a colonscopy I had a colposcopy will i be ok I have an appointment next Monday and I couldnt get in contact with my doctor
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

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)

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
thank you
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.

You are very welcome! My pleasure!

Is their any thing i should do besides taking it easy
Expert:  Nurse Milli, RN replied 5 years ago.
Hi, just let your dr know if the bleeding continues or worsens. That's about it. Try to stay off of your feet as much as possible. Just a quick question, did your dr tell you to avoid sexual intercourse for a certain time period? Did your bleeding start after you said sex or was it there before you had sexual intercourse?
