I'm concerned I had a regular period two weeks ago, but after having sex I experienced light bleeding. Then in the morning I used the restroom and the water in the toilet was a very bright red.

Along with that I have had light bleeding throughout the day, and feeling heavy down there. Could this be from th unprotected sex or could something els be wrong down there.

Hi Anon -

There are many reasons why a woman may experience bleeding after sex even though she is not having her period. Unprotected sex is not one of them. HoPlease see this article written for the EmpowHER community which provides in depth information to answer your question: Reasons for Vaginal Bleeding After Sex.

If the bleeding continues you should visit your doctor or other health provider to figure out the cause and get appropriate support for your own best health.

Hope that helps,
