Our expert says:
Angela, this sounds very much more of a gynaecological issue rather than a sexual one...I recommend that you repost your question on Health 24's Gynae expert forum.
I have no doubt that it impacts on sex though. There are two interrelated issues here. Firstly, if you bleed after sex, in what way is it a problem for you (if the gynae is satisfied that this is not a significant health concern)? In otherwords, if it's is not problematic, you should be able to engage in penetrative intercourse and use precautions (e.g. towel) to protect bedding. And secondly, are you able to consider including alternative sexual activities in order to maintain intimacy but manage the bleeding (eg. sexual stimulation in other ways).
