Bleeding Between Menstrual Periods
You need to have an examination of your cervix, including a pap smear. Bleeding after sex can be a symptom of a polyp on your cervix, a benign growth. It also can be a symptom of cervical cancer.
If no abnormalities are found on your cervix, your evaluation will also include a test of your thyroid function, since abnormal thyroid function can result in bleeding between periods.
