I bled for *3 days* after a pap with one OB, and I wasn't even pregnant at the time!!!! Needless to say, I didn't go back to him. That was not normal for me.
But yeah, it's normal to bleed after a pap, especially when pregnant, since the cervix is tender and there's so much blood flow going on down there. A friend of mine had gushing blood after a cervical exam around 8 months with her first pregnancy, and it was just her cervix bleeding, nothing wrong with the baby or placenta (btw, this was the same OB I'd had the 3 day bleeding with
: - I think he's just kind of rough).
I didn't bleed after my pap this pregnancy (didn't have one with the first pregnancy), but I was seeing this new OB, and when he did my pap last year, I didn't bleed either. Normally, I spot that day and maybe the next day. I don't know what my new OB does different from everyone else that's ever given me a pap!
