is there an odor?
related to intercourse at all?
any problems with constipation?
this is most likely from atrophic vaginitis, which is where the vaginal tissue becomes thin and susceptible to infection. This can cause inflammation and bleeding. The underlying problem is estrogen deficiency.
So, first thing is to have the diagnosis confirmed. Antibiotics to treat the infection. Lastly, vaginal estrogen replacement or OTC Rephresh to help maintain vaginal Ph if you don't want to use hormones.
