Usually intercourse will only cause spotting for 48-72 hours after intercourse... This does not mean you have to be concerned... I would talk to your doctor and see what they say... I will not say that it is normal or abnormal... I will say that depending on where you are in pregnancy that it can be VERY normal... I also will say that it depends on the individual and when I had that it was the beginning of a spontaneous abortion... I started cramping and bleeding approximately 5-7 days after the spotting... But this was in early pregnancy... I don't wish to scare you but I want you to be aware that there could be a cause for concern... If it doesn't stop in the next day or two I would go to E.R. and have a ultrasound done to see if everything is okay... I hope this helps... May God bless you and your pregnancy and keep you and your baby safe!
