How regular were your periods before January 5?

Did the January 5 period come when expected?

Do you use anything for birth control? Thank you.

It came on time my period but it's usually 4-5. I didn't take a morning after pill and I used to be on the pill but got off it September.

Were your periods very regular before January 5?

When was your last pelvic exam and Pap smear?

very regular. Last exam was 2013
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I didn't have unprotected sex until a week and a half ago
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

Bleeding during or after sex generally means that there was some reason to bleed, and the sex brought it on.

The most likely reason you would have for abnormal bleeding would be from some hormonal changes. However, irregular periods would usually come before that.

You might have a fibroid tumor causing irregular bleeding, but they usually occur during the 30's and 40's.

You might have a cervical polyp or erosion (benign raw surface) of the cervix, which could bleed from intercourse.

The bleeding is quite unlikely to be from something serious, but it would be best to see your doctor for an exam to check it out. Best wishes.

Okay so I wouldn't be pregnant?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Thanks Doc! 😊
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

Since you didn't miss a period, pregnancy is very unlikely.

Plus, the first sign of pregnancy is usually not bleeding.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
