    I had my period on 2 sept. Flow was okay for the first two days. Third day it is very less and 4th day onwards light spotting. I am done clear on day 6. Day 7 also clear. Then we had sex. And i started bleeding just after sex or may be during sex. I feel wet but i thought its semen coming out as i was lying down after finishing. Then my husband noticed blood every where. Also clots were coming out. This has never happened to me. We always have sex day 6 onwards as we are trying for a baby. But two years and no luck. Even had gone for IUI. I am still bleeding lightly. I don’t know what is happening. Please reply and help.

  • Hi Doc, I have a question! So, I am on birth control, and I have been for 2 months, and I just started to have sex with my boyfriend. But Ive noticed lately that every time we are done and I go to the washroom right after, once I wipe I see the tiniest blood on the toilet paper (the colour is usually red to bright red). I dont bleed a lot at all, and Im just wondering if this is normal, I am very concerned.:)

  • Hi there, I am a little bit confused with ‘bleeding’ and brownish discharge’. As for my case here, when I went to clean up after sexual intercourse with my husband, I spotted brownish like discharge when I wipe. When it’s the second wipe. it got lighter brown and after third wipe, its clear. No more discharge throughout the day until my next intercourse. However, this usually only happens one week before my period. If I had intercourse the first 3 weeks after my period, there isn’t any discharge. It has been 2 months since that happens. My question I would like to ask is that kind of discharged i just describe consider as bleeding?

  • These are potentially 2 separate issues. Both require attention. It is dangerous to go more than 3 months without a period unless the periods are being suppressed by medications. This is a risk factor for uterine cancer and can lead to dangerously heavy bleeding when the period finally comes. The bleeding after sex may be from an infection or from abnormal cells on the cervix. Make an appointment with your gynecologist to have these issues evaluated.

    So many of you asked me questions about period symptoms so I decided to make this video explaining period symptoms not to ignore. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

  • Men are not immune to discomfort after vigorous sexual activity. Thankfully for all of us, there is a penis health creme available called Man1 Man Oil that is designed to both treat and prevent common penis skin irritations like dryness, chafing, discoloration and soreness. There is no other product out there quite like it. Check it out ladies and gents.

  • Hi doctor! I’m 20 and my discharge sometimes is the color brown ever since I was 16. I’ve also been experiencing bleeding after sex, I’ve only had one sexual partner so it can not be an STD. Please help me figure this out!

  • Thank you for answering. The thing is, my period is about 20 days late. It has been irregular like this since stopping birth control in the fall. I’m averaging 45-55 day cycles rather than my normal 30-35 pre BCP. Since Saturday I have been spotting every once in awhile. It’s brown or pink. I took an HPT about 10 days ago that was negative. I feel lost right now. I don’t know what my body is doing. Do you have any advice for me? Is it supposed to take months for my body to return to normal after stopping BCP?

  • Hi! I had my baby 3.5 months ago via an emergency c section. I noticed the spotting two weeks after the first period I got after delivery. I’m wondering if it was due to the workout that I started doing just recently. I’ve already had my smear test and also got examined by an obgyn since I had vaginal thrush a few weeks ago. Could it be thrush or the workout exertion that’s causing this.?? I guess ill visit the doc again since I’ve already had it twice I.e post workout & sex.

  • My entire life was formerly wrecked as a result of yeast infection for many years. I did hide away because of it. I attempted every crackpot process available. It did not vanish. Then I discovered the Yeast Infection Destroyer blog (Google it) and I had at long last got something that was successful. It’s amazing.
