Question: post coital bleeding

 cake1974 - Tue Oct 11, 2005 10:58 am

Hi, I have PCOS and am on many meds - spironolactone, metformin, the pill and cyproterone acetate. Have been on them all some time. In the last two months I have experienced light bleeding after intercourse. The blood is a dark brown colour, similar to the end of period blood. I am also experiencing a mild pain that feels like period cramps. Is it something to worry about? I am on the pill (Dianette) which is the only contraceptive pill that seems to prevent breakthrough bleeding for me. Could the pill be working less well due to a few pounds weight gain?
