Hello 

i am in desperate need of advice as i am starting to freak out. 

i dont have insurance to start with. Since i got married 10 months ago (I am 32yrs), i have started to notice bloody spotting for few days after intercourse. 

my husband is my first partner. In the begining i thought the reason is that i am new and that might friction from penetration ,, etc 

but this continued more often, and even without intercourse spotting is still there, it appears often after arousal even and not intercouse. 

This last month spotting contined for two weeks now and heavier than before, that even looks like the start of a second period !! 

i have no pain, no cramps, no foul smell discharge or anything. just the spotting

thanks

Ok few questions- Have you changed or started birth control in the last 10 months? Have you ever had problems with not having a regular period? If is spotting with clear (normal looking) discharge? Do you take any medications?

Some ideas are Fibriods (which are more common than not) Uternine Polyps- are worse when estrogen levels increase which explains arrousal. If you answer the above questions I can narrow down a few other things that might help. Hope this helps. I don't think it is anything extremely serious just intercoure may be irratating something you have had for years. I personnaly have ovarian cysts and endometriois, so I will do my best to help you.

INFO ON POLYPS:

Uterine polyps: Uterine polyps occur when the endometrium overgrows causing these protrusions into the uterus. It is extremely rare for these growths to grow in a way that is either benign or malignant. Women with uterine polyps frequently experience bleeding between periods (metrorrhagia), other symptoms includes vaginal bleeding after sex, spotting, menorrhagia, bleeding after menopause, and breakthrough bleeding during hormone therapy. Hysteroscopic-guided curettage is the preferred treatment, since the normal D&C is basically an unguided procedure that may miss many of the uterine polyps.
