Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The rectal bleeding and the abdominal pain indicates the possibility of medical conditions like inflammatory bowel disease or infective enteritis, and this might not essentially be related to the sexual encounter described.

It might be very important for a general examination by a doctor who can get some blood and stool tests to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. Delaying visit to a doctor can be counter productive and cause complications and worsening of your condition.

Treatment might include a course of antibiotics in case of infections or immunosuppressive medications in other cases.

I hope this helps.
