2 – Bleeding After Sexual Intercourse, Douching, Or Pelvic Examination
A lot of women are under the impression that first time sexual intercourse should cause bleeding and that bleeding during “rough” sex is normal. Wrong. Sexual intercourse, douching, or pelvic examinations should only cause mild to moderate discomfort – never “real pain” or bleeding. The vagina is made up of elastic tissue and persistent pain or bleeding can signify a problem with your cervix. Cervical cancer is characterized the formation of lesions on the cervix as cancer cells rapidly spread through cervical tissue. This causes bleeding and discharge not associated with the normal shedding of the uterine lining. 
3 – Bleeding After Menopause
Unlike men, a woman’s fertile period has an end – menopause. Menopause typically happens in a woman’s 40s or 50s when the menstrual cycles stop. During the last 23 months of fertility, women undergoing menopause experience irregular cycles, hot flashes, and emotional changes – basically your menstrual cycle tapers off. Any bleeding after menopause should be a cause of concern because bleeding is a hallmark symptom of cervical cancer.
