my boyfriend and i just recently had sex for the first time. it was towards the end of my period too. he pulled out but i was nervous so i took the morning after pull. a week later he was fingering me and it started to hurt. so i told him to stop and when i went to the bathroom i noticed there was blood. i didn't think much of it but the bleeding hasn't gone away and it's been about 2 days and it's heavy like a normal period. i just got over my period a week ago and i don't know what is going on.

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out. From the description of your symptoms, you seem to be suffering from intermenstrual bleeding. It could be due to several causes. Firstly, you should get urine for pregnancy test done to rule out miscarriage as the cause of bleeding as you had unprotected sexual intercourse prior to that. The serum HCG levels can remain elevated in blood for sometime even if there’s a miscarriage.

Other causes which need to be looked into are fluctuation in hormone levels, hypothyroidism & fibroid in the uterus. It could also be due to a genital infection, cervical polyps or ectopic pregnancy.


You should consult a gynecologist for the diagnosis and treatment as without examination, confirmation of diagnosis is difficult. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
