It depends how much bleeding you experienced, if you had pain or discomfort, or any other symptoms.

Some women can experience slight cramping and/or spotting (a few drops of blood) after sex, as sometimes the vaginal tissue can get small tears from the friction of intercourse, or from fingernails (during foreplay).

Please let us know if you had more severe bleeding or pain after sex, and we can help further.
