So do any of you fine ladies bleed a little after sex? (Specifically low counts...like...30 and under)
I've had ITP for years now, but only recently became sexually active, and I bleed a little every single time we 'do the deed'... Nothing that worries me.. I'm just curious. I've got nothing to compare it to...you know..sex with low counts vs. sex with high counts.
I hope everyone is doing fantastically! It's been a long time since I've been on this site.
Hi, new to the site but wish I would have joined earlier. Pretty new to ITP in comparison to others (Diagnosted March 2012). But yes, I also have this issue. My hemo said this is normal. My last count was 29 which was a great number for me. I have not been above 40 since this was figured out. I now religiouly mark down my periods, which are long and not much time between (bit better now that Im rising slowly, many months went by less the 10. As I reached my suspecyed period chances where greater I would bleed. Problem I had I would bleed but then it would just keep bleeding untill my period kicked in heavy. So I learned to stay away from sex during thw week before. My hemo said basically this could of have been happening before ITP but my body took care it. The force if you will of sex causes it. Hope that helps, wanted to share since it bothered me and bugged me. Messes with your head ...at least for me. My husbands great about it, but still stinks. Hope that helps.
I had that happen too me. I had a hysterectomy many years ago so we know it wasn't from that. First the doctor said can't be from the act of sex. But than when he reviewed my history that is when we figured it was due to trauma to the skin. Nothing I could do about it.
When my counts were super low and this happen I wore a panty liner
