Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that she describes could suggest pregnancy possibility if she is not on any regular birth control measures, and if the intercourse was unprotected and closer to her ovulation day. The bleeding/period that she had could be the decidual bleeding (if she is pregnant). Wait and watch for her next periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
