Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

May I ask how old you are?

I see you've previously had an abnormal pap smear. When was your last pap smear? Was it normal?

When was your last Depo shot?

Is the heavy bleeding every time you have sex, or just sometimes?

What are your periods like otherwise?

Hey , I'm 26 , my last normal pap was 2 years ago. I stop receiving depo in Nov 2017.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

How was your bleeding on the Depo and since your last shot?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Pretty much non existent.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the info.

Even though your last Depo shot was 4 months ago (and it's only good for birth control for 3 months), it can take up to a year for all the hormone to totally get out of your system, and you can have irregular bleeding while your hormones straighten out again.

That all being said, because you've previously had an abnormal pap, even through your very last one was normal, I would still recommend getting another pap smear to make sure the abnormality hasn't returned, because that can cause bleeding with sex. Also, it's a good idea to get tested for STDs because those can sometimes cause bleeding with intercourse too.

I've been tested for STDs and the results was negative. I have and appointment for coloscopy in 3 weeks. So should I just wait until I have sex again?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

Are you having colposcopy in 3 weeks to look at your cervix?

Oh I forgot I was diagnosed with bv also. Can that cause and abnormal pap smear?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

BV usually shows up as BV on a pap smear, and is treated with antibiotics. With an abnormal pap smear requiring a colposcopy, it means the cells of the cervix are abnormal. I think if you had an abnormal pap smear, that is likely to be causing the bleeding with intercourse.

Should I be concerned? It only happened once?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

If it only happened once, I wouldn't be too concerned.

Be sure to get your colposcopy to make sure your abnormal pap is nothing to worry about.

I also have mild cramping, similar to period cramps
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified OB/GYN replied 4 months ago

This could also be your period starting to come back now that you're off the Depo.
