Comfortable Sex makes me bleed
Hello. Please advise me on a problem I have encountered a few times. Whilst having intercourse with my partner, i have on occasion started bleeding quite a lot. The intercourse is not "rough" nor painful, so Im not sure why this happens. I do have endometriosis. Could this be a cause. It doesnt happen often, but for when it does, I am very embarrased, and worried as I cannot wait to have children one day, and worry that something may be wrong. Please advise me on whether Im just being a bit paranoid, or if it is something i must have checked out. It is not painful at all, I just bleed. Thank you.

It may indicate that there is a problem with the cervix. You should have this checked out. Endometriosis can involve the cervix, but this is not common.
