Hi, I had my regular cycle of 6 days. 3 days later I had intercourse, that next day I started my cycle again and its heavy like my other 1 and has lasted 6 days as well, but only this time no cramps what does this means?

Dear Natoshia,

Thanks for contacting EmpowHer today. I don't think this was caused because of sex unless it was more vigorously than normal. Irregularities in menstrual bleeding are common. If the same thing happens with your next period the following month, see your doctor. You might want to consider using protection and getting on birth control as well.
