Question: Bleeding after orgasm

 vlgirl - Tue Jul 10, 2007 3:41 am

Hi i am a 19yo girl, I have been on Depo Provera since i was 16. It was good for ages, no problems just occasional spotting which the GP said was normal.
In the last 2-3 months everytime i orgasm be it sex or masturbation with no penetration there is bleeding afterwards, not alot, but after sex can get really messy
Help! its ruining my sex life!

I went to the GP a month ago and they said it could just be a normal reaction, they did a smear test and the results were clear.

User avatar I would recommend an additional visit with your doctor, perhaps gynecologist. It's always a good idea to check out causes of abnormal bleeding just to be sure.
