Welcome to ehealthforum,
Bleeding/spotting during or after intercourse could be suggestive of possible internal injuries, vaginal infections, cervical problems, presence of cervical or uterine polyps, hormonal imbalances, etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation done to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you (based on examination and investigation results). The other symptoms could also be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you develop any new symptoms, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to confirm/rule out pregnancy by getting a serum/blood HCG test done. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
