bleeding during sexual intercouse
Mar 12, 2005

me and my boyfriend were having sex and found that after we had finished he ha d bled inside of me. i take the contraceptive pill however we did not use a condom. im scared of contracting a disease either though both of us dont have hiv or any other disease. what could you advise

Response from Dr. McGovern

If you have both been recently tested for HIV, HBV, and HCV and have both seen the results of each others tests, and they are negative, then there would be no need for further testing.

However, I ALWAYS advise use of condoms since this takes the worry out of having intercourse. I see too many patients have severe anxiety over need for testing which could be lessened by condom use.
