  • Bleeding from stress?

    I had unprotected sex in the beginning of December 2016. He did not ejaculate and we stopped quickly after putting it in. We also had protected sex later that month and the condom was not broken.
    This Jan. I was spotting a bit before my period and I started my period a week late because of stress. This past week has been terrible bc I've been stressing out about life in general. I've felt every negative emotion and I haven't been eating properly (one or two meals a day) and my sleep schedule keeps changing. I've been getting nervous and anxious this past week, so that hasn't helped. I've been bleeding randomly throughout the past couple days (blood clots at first but now it's watery dark red blood). I think my body is out of wack bc I'm stressed. Can I bleed from extreme stress? I don't feel sick, I don't get dizzy.. I'm just extremely stressed and I'm bleeding watery, dark red blood randomly all day. If anything I'd need a panty liner.. It's not spotting because I read that spotting is lighter.

    Any help would be appreciated. Stress about everything else..and now this...isn't making things better.

    just showered and a LOT of watery blood came out-- imagine a nose bleed... if you just let the blood drip out of your nose..that's the type of blood I'm having.

    • Are you using hormonal birth control in addition to condoms? Stress causes the release of cortisol which can alter reproductive hormones.
