Question: Bleeding and right side pain

 3angels4me - Sat Apr 14, 2007 7:15 pm

I am a 36 year old female and a couple of weeks ago after having intercourse, I had some vaginal bleeding afterwords. This is the first time it ever happened.During intercourse one time I felt a very sharp pain and I thought maybe that was why I was bleeding some. The next time we had sex, there was very, very, very faint bleeding on the toilet paper afterwords, not really even noticeable except I was looking so closely for it. Now I am having pain on the right side, especially my lower back and up to just below my undearm. My stomach is also somewhat hurting. The back pain is always worse when I wake up in the morning. I have been diagnosed with PCOD and also gastritis problems and put on the drug Acifex. I am concerned about the bleeding and back pain, does anyone know what might be going on and if they are related??? Thanks!!!

User avatar You may have strained one of the ligaments similar to spraining your ankle. The bleeding may be from a small tear in the mucosa of your vagina.

If your pain continues or if the bleeding does not improve you should see your gynecologist for an examination.

Best wishes.
