Bleeding two days after sex

Hello, well, I'm 21 and two days ago, on Thursday, I had sex for the first time. It was protected, he wore a condom, and ejaculated outside; we also checked the condom if it had tore but it was okay. On Wednesday however, we fooled around a bit, and he had fingered me. When I got home I noticed that I had bled a bit, it was brownish, I thought it was my period but I didn't bleed after that. I'm thinking it may have been my hymen. On Thursday, after he had penetrated me, I noticed a small amount of blood on my thigh, and I assumed this was what was left of my hymen. Today, two days later, I bled quite a bit, bright red, and I'm getting a bit worried as to what caused it. I heard about impregnantion bleeding but I actually thought this was the beginning of my period, however, too early. I'm afraid that is the reason, and I'm also afraid that since this was my first time, blunt trauma could be the reason why I am bleeding. Is it normal to bleed two days after sex? Should I be worried that I'm pregnant? I'm thinking of seeing my doctor on Monday but I want not to stress too much over this. Thank you.

Hello, I had sex with my bf 3 days after my menstruation.. then another 3 days after our unprotected intercourse, I saw some red stains in my undies for 1 day and I'm sure it was blood. By the way, we had 3 straight days unprotected intercourse. Is it a sign that I am pregnant? I have PCOS so I'm not sure if it is also concerned/related with my PCOS.

Hi I am 19 years old. I had protected sex with my boyfriend yesterday and my period ended the day before. Today I noticed some reddish brown blood after urinating. Should I be worried ? Or get a morning after pill? I am kind of freaking out

Hello Anon

Your bleeding was the remainder of your period so that's not concerning. Since you used protection, there is no need to do anything else. The MAP will only serve to disrupt your cycle and cause side effects.

Me and my boy friend got a little high and he went a little in me for the first time. I was due that day but didn't have my period. But I got it 2days after sex. It lasted 3days like always but blessed heavily the first day.

Hello Anonymous,

The concern is why did she bleed for two days if her period ended the week before. She needs to speak with her gynecologist.

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and I'm on the pill religiously. He didn't ejaculate inside but outside and some dribbled down however now I'm bleeding heavily. I don't usually start my period during my birth control since my period only happens four times a year. What could this mean?
