Supposed to start period this week , weird bleeding

User Profile
Ok i was supposed to start my period sometime this week. After me and my boyfriend has sex last night i started bleeding so i thought it was my period. I put a tampon in for a few hours and took it out to find that there was no blood on it. I put another tampon in with the same results. This is now day 31 since i've gotten my last menstration and this action is worrying me because it's never happened. I just wanted to know if there would be any reason other than pregnancy for this weird bleeding.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Bleeding after intercourse can also suggest PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) or any cervical problem.
Since your periods are also delayed, do not ignore it anymore. Visit your gynecologist/healthcare provider to see if it is due to pregnancy or cervical problems or PID. If any infectious cause is found, then get your partner also treated simultaneously, and avoid having unprotected intercourse during treatment to prevent chances of re-infection.
Take care.
