I am 28 years old, and have recently been experiencing bleeding after sexual intercourse. This sometimes occurs as spotting, but occasionally as a light bleed. Is this normal?

Vaginal discharge causes undue concern in many women and their partners. It is important to appreciate that the vagina is a dynamic organ that responds to changing hormones in the female reproductive cycle. Secretions arise from the vagina and cervix, and vary depending on circulating female hormones. The secretions serve an important housekeeping function that carries away dead cells and bacteria. This keeps the vagina clean and helps prevent infection.

 

Urinary tract infections, commonly called UTIs are fairly common in women. They tend to occur mostly in the bladder and the urethra (the tube that brings urine out). In some cases, the infection can spread to affect the kidneys as well.

 

The end of pregnancy cannot come sooner for many women. The initial excitement of carrying a pregnancy starts to wane off towards the last few weeks. Carrying the extra weight causes unending fatigue, and ordinary activities are further limited by more pronounced bodily changes towards the final weeks. And the expectation of seeing the long awaited baby adds to the desire of seeing the end of the pregnancy.
