Intercourse and Vaginal Bleeding - When is it Serious?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Intercourse and Vaginal Bleeding - When is it Serious?

One of the common complaints associated with sexual intercourse, is vaginal bleeding. This bleeding can occur during the course of intimacy or after it. Post intercourse bleeding is also termed as post-coitus bleeding. This is known as post costal bleeding. Doctor should be consulted immediately as it may be a sign of hidden cervical cancer.

Reasons behind vaginal bleeding
1. In most cases, the bleeding is risk free. It could be due to extreme friction, causing damage to superficial blood vessels in the cervix. It is important to use adequate lubrication; otherwise the consequences could be annoyingly painful.
2. If your period dates are nearby, the source of the blood could be from your uterus.
3. Benign growths, cysts, polyps on the cervix can cause bleeding. They are small fragile growths that rupture easily.
4. There can also be bleeding due to inflammations that occur as a reaction to a condom or a diaphragm.

When can vaginal bleeding be difficult?

  1. Vaginal bleeding after sex can often be a warning sign of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is when implantation of an embryo takes place outside the uterus, commonly inside the fallopian tubes.
  2. Bleeding every time after intercourse is also a common symptom of endometriosis. It occurs when the inner lining of the uterus, called the endometrial tissue, appears outside it. Endometrial tissue can attach itself to other surrounding organs in the pelvic region, generally, the abdomen, causing searing pain. It is also a major cause of infertility.
  3. Another cause of vaginal bleeding is atrophic vaginitis, a health condition mostly affecting older women, especially those who have reached menopausal age. This is due to the massive decline in the levels of estrogen that causes vaginal dryness and irritation.
  4. Sexually transmitted diseases could be a serious cause of vaginal bleeding. It is generally accompanied by several other symptoms such as vaginal odour, discharge, pelvic pain, inflammations. It should receive immediate medical attention.
  5. Vaginal bleeding could be a sign of cancer. It could be vaginal, ovarian, uterine or cervical cancer. It requires medical attention without any delay.

Most of the time, the reasons for post coitus bleeding is harmless. However, if it persists, you must pay a visit to your gynaecologist as soon as possible and get a thorough evaluation done. This could save the condition from worsening and also diagnose any other underlying medical condition at an early, curable stage.

This bleeding could be bcz of low lying placenta or some other issue, it would be better if you get a dopplers Ultrasound done to confirm for babies well being and thereafter decide for the course of treatment to be taken. You may though immediately start with pregnancy support pills to avoid any complications.

My ovulation occurs on the 14th day every month but this month, I felt white discharge and rise in temperature (more than usual) with pain on 9th day. Is it possible that I ovulated during that time since I have not changed my lifestyle. Because it always happens on the exact 14th day every month.

DNB, DGO, MD
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Of course it can vary sometimes. Of course its possible and also normal to ovulate bit earlier once in a while. However it's not confirmatory just by your subjective asessement. If you actually ovulated on day 9 you should get your period by day 23 or 24.

Sitting posture
Ergonomically correct way to sit at a computer desk:
1. Sit straight in your chair with support of lumbar roll, rolled towel or small pillow over low back area.
2.2. Try to sit on the edge of chair so that you do not lean forward. While sitting on edge is comfortable to make your spine erect, form an arch, make your head to drop in front and your shoulders to round.
3. Drop your shoulders and rest them.
4. Arms should be close to your sides with elbows bend at 90 degree position.
5. Head should be stretch towards the ceiling.
6. Chin tuck in.
7. Upper back should be straight by rolling shoulders backwards along with tummy tuck in.
8. Neck in comfortable straight position.
9. The height of the table should be adjusted in a way so that it should not be too high or too low in the level of eyes so that neck should not bend up or down.
10. Knees should be in 90 degree flexion so that they are on level with your hips.
11. Feet should be place flat on the floor. Make sure it should make a level with knee and hip position. If knee or leg pains then you can also keep small stool or footstool or other support to rest your foot on it.

How Homeopathy Helps to Treat Infections?

How Homeopathy Helps to Treat Infections?

Infection is generally understood as the invasion into the body tissues of an organism by certain foreign bodies such as bacteria, parasite, and virus. They are transmissible diseases like Viral fever, Cough, cold, Gastroenteritis, Dysentery, etc. and can be transmitted from one person to the other via sneezing, coughing or physical contact. They can be mild, moderate or severe.

  • They can be acute, that is, can last for a short time, or chronic that lasts for a long time, or a latent infection that may not cause any symptoms at first but reactivates and resurfaces over a period of time.
  • Although each infection has its own distinct symptom. Generally, these symptoms include fever, swelling, redness, inflammation, burning, cough, diarrhea, fatigue, muscular pain, nausea, vomiting, rapid pulse or rapid breathing.
  • If the patient has a severe headache, difficulty in breathing, painful swelling and unexplained prolonged fever or cough, he or she should immediately consult a doctor.

Conventional drugs that are given to treat infections like antibiotics, antiviral, antihistamines and steroids have many side effects on the human body. They, on one hand, hamper the digestive power of the system and on the other hand lower the immunity power of the body. In the long run, these medicines can have adverse effects on the body. Though conventional drugs suppress the disease for some time, the disease tends to resurface in the future.

However, Homeopathy has been found to be of great success in treating both acute and chronic infections. The best part is that, there is no side effect. Homeopathy also boosts our immune system so that the body naturally develops the strength to fight against infections in future, when foreign bodies invade. Homeopathic medicines have also proved to be effective as preventive measures against infections.

Most of the Homeopathy medicines are prescribed on the basis of symptoms observed. So, Homeopathic medicines are prescribed, even before the definitive diagnosis is made. Thus, the time saved prevents the infection from spreading, and the patient is automatically cured rapidly.

Most likely you are suffering from fibrocystic disease. It is due to hormonal stimulation of the breast tissue. It may cause pain in some patients. It may resolve spontaneously with pregnancy. Reassurance and supportive sports bra (especially in large breasts) have shown to be effective in most women. Usually Vitamin E 400 mg 2-3 capsule daily or/ and Evening Primrose Oil 3000 mg daily Containing 240-360 mg GLA which comes to 4-6 capsules per day is the initial amount prescribed for 2-3 months. If response is good then the dose may be decreased for 3 more months and then stopped. The symptoms may never recur. But relapses are also known. If there is no response to above, then we usually shift to Danazole, Bromocriptine or SERM (tamoxifen or ormeloxifen) Bromocriptine is costly and causes nausea, vomiting and headache. Danazole has troublesome androgenic side effects. Tamoxifen is known to cause DVT or cataract but usually for long term or higher dose of 20 mg, which is given in breast cancer. We recommend 10 mg daily for 3 months. Ormeloxifen is the indian drug previously called centchroman or Saheli. It is usually given as 30 mg daily or alternate day schedule. Some patients may develop ovarian cysts on daily schedule. It works well with non cyclical as well as cyclical mastalgia. If you need further clarification, feel free to contact me directly.

For you the advise is to take ecp immediately. However please note that ecps are only for emergency use and their use shall be avoided regularly. Please note that ecp need to be take within 2-3 days of contact. It is advised that you consult a gynaecologist.
