I don’t think if you were “cut” it would be bleeding like that for so long. Definitely talk with your doctor.

Are you on any type of hormonal bc? Only asking because the last time I was, my body didn’t care for it too much and all the extra hormones caused some between period spotting. Got of the bc and it stopped. I can see how the length of time is concerning. Another thing you may want to consider till you see your gyno is stress. Stress can do crazy things to your body and if spotting for a day or so is normal for you, is there a chance stress just caused this to last longer than usual?

The internet has a great way of making you worry. I’m sure you’ll be fine. 🙂 Hope all goes well at your next check up.

Where are you in relation to your period? Certain times of the month, your lining is thinner, making you more vulnerable to spotting during/after penetration.

It happened to me once when I didn’t realize I was not over a yeast infection. It only lasted like a day though.

Please don’t google anymore! Every time I do for something medical I always wind up reading that all my limbs are going to fall off, and I’m dying in, like,  5 minutes.

Just go to the doctor!  Don’t Google!

My friend was googling some symptoms she had last week and convinced herself she had AIDS.  Not good.  She didn’t!

If I’m at the day before my period…or on the last day of my period, an orgasm will make me bleed a little bit.

This happens to me almost everytime after DH and I have sex. It’s always bright red and a lot right after sex and tapers off the hours following. I generally spot for a couple of days afterward, but it’s very light.

I talked to my gyno about it during my last visit because I have Endo, but he didn’t seem concerned.

@Big Truck: This has happened to me too. The last time it lasted more than a day i saw the dr and  found some tears which he put some oitment to seal it. I haven’t bled again. I now use lubricant all the time to prevent tears

This happens for me to, sometimes it can lead to like a proper period as well. I have a cyst in my womb though, so it might be because of that (not big enough for drs to be concerned about though, as they come and go)

Yeah, me too. I was told that WHERE the blood is coming from matters… what’s strange for me is that the spot that bleeds is right near the entrance, and it becomes red raw and painful sometimes. Dr just referred me to the vulval pain society, which means either that they don’t know what it is, or that they think it’s psychosomatic (which it can’t be, because it bleeds!). Anyway, I’ve been told it’s not cancer… pap smears are clean… get yourself checked out so you can stop worrying, but otherwise you should know that many kinds of spotting/bleeding have no apparent cause that the Dr can identify. Which means you aren’t going to die/explode, and you probably shouldn’t worry about it.

This used to happen to me. I went off the pill and it stopped. I went to the gyn a few months later and she put me back on the pill, but it was the generic, and it hasn’t happened again.
