Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes, the spotting/bleeding in between menstrual cycle can also be suggestive of implantation bleeding (if you have had an ovulation and been sexually active during ovulation time). If it occurs only during or after intercourse, it could also be suggestive of possibility of vaginal infections, hormonal imbalances, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, cervical dysplasia/erosion, etc. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and investigations to look for the underlying cause. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by examination and investigations results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
