My sister had a partial hysterectomy and now she bleeds whenever she has sex. She has not had a period in 15 years and have pain after intercourse or when she makes a sudden movement. Should she have surgery again

Hello. Thank you for writing.

We research and answer general health questions, we cannot advise treatment or surgery for anyone. Your sister should see her GYN for a thorough examination in order to find out the cause of the bleeding. Some causes of vaginal bleeding/pain during sex include:

-Friction during sex or not enough lubrication
-Normal uterine bleeding if you're just beginning your period or if it’s just ended
-A cervical or vaginal infection
-Genital sores caused by herpes or another condition
-A precancerous cervical spot
-Cervical ectropion (when the inner lining of the cervix pokes through the cervical opening and grows on the vaginal side of the cervix)
-Pelvic organ prolapse (when pelvic organs, like the bladder or uterus, jut beyond the vaginal walls)
-Cancer of the cervix, vagina, or uterus
