HELP! PCOS sufferer with contraceptive implant and consistent bleeding after sex


I am about to turn 28 and have suffered with PCOS for approx 10 years. I bleed after almost every time I have sex. I also am often bleeding just randomly though it is hardly ever like a period. I have had numerous tests and scans and nothing apart from one cervical screening that said I had borderline changes since the last. FYI I have also had the implant fitted approx 6 months ago but bleed after sex even before I had the implant. It is really starting to get me down now and I am scared about it getting to my partner too. It is a real inconvenience.

Please advise!

Hi there, I have had the same kind of experience except I'm not on any contraception, when they've checked have they done screenings of your cervix as I used to bleed during & after intercourse and it was due to abnormal cells on my cervix I ended up having a minor op to remove those cells & haven't had the problem anymore

The implant is not good from a pcos point of view and can make the symptoms much worse. So you are up to date with your smear tests, have you been back to the GP about it. I would get the implant removed asap.
