Unprotected intercourse always carries a risk of pregnancy but if after the act the blood flow was normal in February as regular menstrual period then possibility of pregnancy does not arise.
Regarding the change in the bleeding pattern and duration it can be suggestive of underlying issues as ovarian cyst,endometritis,cervicitis,pelvic infection,thyroid hormone abnormalities etc.
It is difficult to comment without proper examination.You require a detailed pelvic examination and investigations as USG scan and hormonal analysis along with pregnancy test to rule out the exact cause of such prolonged blood flow.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
