    Hello good morning madam. There are a couple of causes to bleed after sex.Poir lubrication, cervical ectropion and polyps, infections. It could also be your periods coming earlier due to the contraception you took. Some women also report some spotting during ovulation as well as during implantation. What I can simply say is if this is the first time this is happening. There is no need to panic or worry just yet. Watch what happens during the next couple of cycles. This may just be a hormonal imbalance due to the contraception you took and should surely normalise. If it's still very erratic adter 2 more cycles, then it becomes a reason to see your gynaecologist. You may also rule out pregnancy to make sure it's not an implantation bleed you have via a blood pt. put your mind at rest and all the best.
