bleeding and cramping after intercourse *tmi* One crazy momma! Due November 13 (girl); 2 kids; California 980 posts

My husband and I had sex this morning, and after I went to the bathroom and what looked like tissue followed by blood, its been about 2 hours and I still have pinkish blood followed by cramping. Ive never experienced this with any of my pregnancies. I called the doctor and he said its normal and to just lay back. I can't help but worry! I'm 16 weeks today.



Anyone else have a similar experience?



thanks ladies

Yep. my Dr said i have a spot on my cervix that could cause bleeding. so they told me to not have sex for 2 weeks but if i was filling a pad up then to come in.
We havent had sex since. and im not risking it either.

Yep, with every pregnancy. With my first it turned out to be a previa but that was a crazy amount of bleeding after sex, like I had to use a towel cuz tp wasn't cutting it. With my other two I would bleed after sex occasionally in the first and second trimesters because of a vascular cervix which is very common to have in subsequent pregnancies.

The last time I had sex I was 10 weeks pregnant and began to gush blood. I mean, it was coming out fast and very bright red. I thought for sure I had hurt something, but I went and got an ultrasound and everything was fine. I bled for hours and spotted well into the next day. My doctor did a pelvic and said my cervix was closed the bleeding was coming from the outside.

This happened to me with my first pregnancy. I was 12 weeks pregnant and after sex I started bleeding, but it only lasted about 15 min and then it stopped. However I still went to the hospital and the nurses and OB dr. told me it was normal. Cramping is very normal after sex especially if you climax (sorry tmi)... but it's true! I was also told by the dr.s (and my sis-in-law) that certain postitions can increase the chance for bleeding. Don't do it doggy!! LOL (sorry again tmi) ... You should be fine, but like hedur06 said, if you are filling a pad. seek medical attention ASAP.

It was so irritating because I called the doctor on call and asked him about it and he said "yes, bleeding and cramping after intercourse is normal" and in the backround I heard ladies laughing! I wonder if they were laughing at what he said. I already feel gross.

Personally I would not have sex for a few weeks just cuz you had so much bleeding! Even though its normal it could make for some problems! I have a pollup on my cervix and I would bleed after sex as well so just to be on the safe side I didnt do it for a few weeks and it never happened again so far. I hope all it well and never worry about what people think if it TMI cuz thats what we are here for!!

Ya, my doctor always told me to wait at least a day after the bleeding had stopped competely before resuming sex.
