Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hormonal birth control methods usually start giving you effective protection after about 3-4 weeks of regular use. It is recommended that you use additional protection while having intercourse during this time. The chances of pregnancy cannot be rule out if you were sexually active without protection during first 3-4 weeks.
Bleeding during or after intercourse could be suggestive of vaginal infection, cervical erosion/dysplasia, internal injury, uterine fibroids/polyps etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest to have examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause.
Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding. If suspected to be pregnant, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
