Medical Doctor Q&A's
Name: leslie

I have been having breakthrough bleeding while taking the pill for several years now. I have tried different pills but, they all seem to do the same after a while. Here in the last year or so I have been experiecing light bleeding after intercourse. We only have sex about 1 ever 2 to 3 months. Could this be the cause of that or is this related to the pills also. I am 26 and have 1 child. Been on pills for 6 years.

The bleeding after intercourse could be due to some irritation of the cervix and should be checked out by a doctor. The breakthrough bleeding while taking the bc pill is usually due to the progestin in the pill not being strong enough for your uterus to prevent bleeding.
