Why do I bleed when I have sex? And why does the side of my stomach hurt in only one sex position?

I am on the Birth control pill, and I have been using condoms also. And 3 weeks after starting the pill I started spotting , then the spotting stopped and when I had sex in a certain position the side of my stomach hurts when Im on that position , so once i switched to a different position it doesnt hurt, when i switched to that new position I was bleeding , so me and my boyfriend stopped. So the days went by I stopped bleeding and I had sex again and I didnt bleed, but yesterday I had sex again and I went in the position that hurts again so once it started hurting i went back to the one im comfortable in and after we were done I was bleeding a little bit. I know I am not pregnant because I use spermicidal condoms and we always check them when we are done, and I dont have any std's and he does not either. And I have missed pills, but once I started spotting I stopped.

Hi Mo916,
When you miss your pills, it is very common to have spotting. It appears from your explanation that you just started taking the pills a few weeks ago and again, it would be very normal for spotting to occur as your body is getting used to the pill. Use a back up method for birth control since you are sexually active such as condoms.

As for the pain in a certain sexual position, I think every woman has this issue with a certain position. It may just be the position that causes pain so try and stay away from that certain position as it seems that you do not have issues in other positions. If you have concerns, call your physician.

I hope this helps. Keep us posted.
