Hi Doc, Two days after having sex I started bleeding and then discovered I had a Abcess (BARTHOLINS).I had a operation to remove it. Can u please tell me if this was caused by sex and do I need to worry about STD's. Thanking you kindly.

It is caused by blockage of the gland that secretes lubrication. It can be associated with STDs but not always.
