I bleed during sex. What could be the course??


Dear Nikky,

Does the bleeding happen all the time you have sex? Or is it sometimes? There are many causes for bleeding during sex. They can be both physical or emotional. .

Vaginal bleeding could be due to dryness, infections, and vaginismus (a condition that involuntarily tenses vaginal muscles). Vaginismus can be emotional, due to fear of being hurt, contracting an STD, getting pregnant, or even the guilt associated with sex. It could also be as a result of previous trauma.

It could also be as a result of other medical conditions such as fibroids.

Consider, visiting a health facility for clear diagnosis and treatment.
